This new sensor has the possibility of solving the problem of losing detail in zoom shots, even while recording in 4K or 8K. There are several obstacles Samsung must overcome to make the ISOCELL 600-megapixel camera sensor a reality. Therefore, it is safe to say that you should not be expecting an announcement from Samsung anytime soon about the ISOCELL 600-megapixel.
Ice Universe tweeted that Samsung is currently working on a 600-megapixel sensor which is expected to be 1/0.57-inch in size. This Samsung latest tech is much bigger than the current largest sensor present resent in the Huawei P40 Pro+ at a size of 1/1.28-inch.

What Else About The ISOCELL 600-megapixel?
The internal document reveals that Samsung is trying to solve the problem of the massive camera bump. The camera bump that currently seems to project out by 22mm when integrated. The document says that the sensor also takes up 12 percent of the smartphone back panel real estate. This is sometimes the amount of space taken by all sensors together in a multiple camera module setup. The internal paper reveals that this work in progress 600-megapixel sensor with 0.8um pixel size is enormous as of now, and Samsung still needs to put in fair amount of work to be able to introduce it on flagship handsets of the future. Don’t expect this sensor to be unveiled very soon.
The 108-megapixel main sensor was featured on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. It also appeared on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra released earlier this year. It is unlikely that the new 600-megapixel sensor will appear on the next-gen flagship phones. However, it is good to know that Samsung is working tirelessly to achieve this goal.
