The first smartphone with a 200MP camera sensor is expected to be the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra (aka Moto X30 Pro), which could be launched later this month. The flagship should be equipped with a 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 144 Hz and an FHD + resolution. The phone will reportedly be available with a whopping 12GB of storage and perhaps 512GB of storage.
In addition to the 200MP camera sensor, the rear array will likely include a 50MP sensor and a 12MP sensor, although the handset may not include an ultra-wide option. The battery is rumored to weigh in at 4500 mAh and can be charged quickly at 125 W with wired charging and 50 W with wireless charging. Under the hood is Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset.
The 200MP camera sensor is arguably the most exciting feature of the device. The Edge 30 Ultra will be the only handset with the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 200MP sensor initially. Focusing on the camera (see what we did there?), Lenovo General Manager Chen Jin went to his Weibo account and posted a sample photo of the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.

, the photo shows a colorful flower arrangement shot at 50MP (using the 4:1 pixel binning with the 200MP sensor). With Pixel binning, pixels share information with neighboring pixels. For example, with 4:1 pixel binning, four pixels share the data they have collected to produce a superpixel. This reduces the 200MP image to 50MP and provides a clearer photo with less noise.

Chen Lin pointed out that the 4:1 pixel binning used on the device is superior to the 9:1 binning used with the 108MP camera found on the Moto G200 released earlier this year.
Performance, looks, a great camera; it seems that the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra can live up to the high expectations that this Android flagship now has.
