If you believed 108MP cameras on mobile phones are overkill, prepare to be blown away with this piece of news. According to a tipster in China, an unknown smartphone with a huge 256MP image sensing unit has actually been found in the wild. While the tipster didn’t recognize the device itself, online reports appropriately mention that the camera software application portrayed in the image suggests that it might be a Xiaomi smart device.

The news originates from serial tipster Digital Chat Station, who just recently published an image that supposedly reveals the camera screen of a device with the so-called 256MP camera. It’s likewise not instantly clear regarding whether the figure describes a real 256MP hardware or if the supplier (reported to be Xiaomi) is utilizing software application to high-end 64MP images to 256MP.

On the other hand, PiunikaWeb on Weibo, also claimed that an unknown supplier is already developing a 256MP image sensing unit. Although it is not clear now that the news sensor is of Sony or Samsung or someone else. We anticipate to hear more about this if the report is correct.

With the trend of the Megapixel war between smartphone companies, it is quite evident that with every coming year, there will be higher Megapixel sensors for better smartphone photography. This year the tech giant, Samsung, is also expected to include a 108MP camera sensor in Galaxy S11+. But the step up from 108MP to 256MP will be an interesting one to see if it will result in any real betterment in picture quality in smartphones.
