Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to skip the megapixel race

Remember that telling teaser of Samsung’s upcoming Exynos chipset that showed a phone with 6 cameras and its elusive 200MP sensor? Well, that might have been a concept for other phones, not the Galaxy S21 series successor. 

Alternatively, it might have simply showcased that Samsung’s Exynos chipsets in question can support a main camera with up to a 200MP sensor, too, similar to the Snapdragon 888 processor specs.
No matter what noise- and cross-talk reducing trickery or software algorithms you apply, this same sensor won’t be able to perform as well as Samsung’s 50MP GN2 one with large 1.4 micron pixel size, and that’s simply physics.

Granted, this Dual Pixel Pro focusing tech you see above is the bee’s knees, but nothing prevents Samsung from introducing it in its larger sensor, hopefully in time for the S22 Ultra, or simply refuse to participate in the megapixel race further, and use the 50MP GN2 unit for the S22 series. Are you disappointed that we may not see a Galaxy S22 Ultra with 200MP camera on the back?
