Qualcomm has today introduced the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile processor for premium Android smartphones. The company says that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is able to provide images with 200MP quality through the collaboration with Samsung.

Back in June this year, Samsung officially launched the 200MP ISOCELL HP3 image sensor that brings a Super QPD auto-focusing solution and lets users capture videos in 8K at 30 fps. Qualcomm has used this ISOCELL HP3 image sensor in order to add 200MP support to Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC.

Sony and Samsung are two of the most popular image sensor manufacturers in the market. As per the market research firm Strategy Analytics (SA), Sony leads the image sensor industry with a 44% market share in the first half of this year, whereas, the Korean tech Samsung ranks second with a 30% market share.

The chipset maker has collaborated with these companies to meet its task to optimize Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and each image sensor. And, Samsung has finally made it possible to discover high-definition images by combining the 200MP ISOCELL HP3 with the new processor. Whereas, Sony, improved its HDR performance in two models, the ‘IMX 800’ and the ‘IMX 989’, which are quad exposure image sensors.

HDR technology takes multiple images and blends them to enlarge the range of contrast ratio. It helps make bright parts brighter and dark parts darker to produce a clearer subject. Sony’s quad-exposure image sensor synthesizes 4 images compared to the previous 2, therefore, it implements more excellent HDR technology.

Aside from these, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 adopts AI-based cognitive image signal processing, which provides a semantic segmentation function that improves the quality of photos and videos in real-time.

Qualcomm Vice President Jude Heep said – “In addition to the new camera function based on Qualcomm’s AI technology, we have improved the technology of photography through cooperation with Samsung Electronics and Sony.”
