Samsung working on 1-inch camera with in-sensor crop zoom: Rumor
Samsung shipped its 200-megapixel camera with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Moving ahead, the company is expected to ship the next two S Ultra flagships with enhanced variants of its 200-megapixel sensor. A new leak reveals that Samsung is also working on a 1-inch ISOCELL camera sensor.
