A phone with a 200-megapixel camera? Yep, you read that right. Veteran mobile maker Motorola has reportedly developed a 200-megapixel smartphone. The 200-megapixel camera phone was developed under the codename “Frontier,” and is launching in China next month, The Verge reported. These details were shared by Motorola in a post on Chinese portal Weibo.
A camera powerhouse
For the advanced 200-megapixel camera, Motorola’s upcoming device will use Samsung’s 200-megapixel sensor that was announced last year. It will be clubbed with a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera, a 12-megapixel telephoto camera, and a 60-megapixel selfie camera. These specs were first revealed by WinFuture back in January. The first image of the phone was shared on Weibo back in March, 2022. Sadly, you can’t access these images in India, where Weibo is banned.
It appears that Motorola’s camera powerhouse would also sport a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 125W wired fast-charging and 50W wireless fast-charging.
Razr 3 is coming too!
That’s not all! Motorola is also expected to release the third-generation foldable Razr, according a cryptic message shared by Motorola’s General Manager Shen Jin that showed the shadow of a foldable device. The Razr 3 was confirmed by Motorola’s Shen Jin last year, and the first images of the phone leaked earlier this month. It’ll use the new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor that will also appear on the 200-megapixel device.
On GizNext, the device is listed as “Motorola Frontier 22” with an expected price-tag of ₹41,046 in India, with two colour options – black and white. The device is also expected to sport a glass front and glass back.
For now, the company has only confirmed a China launch. It’s unclear when it might hit the Indian market. What do you think about a camera powerhouse device by Motorola?
