Samsung could be developing their own 1-inch camera sensor


These days, many handset makers are bumping up the megapixel count on their phones, which is more of a marketing gimmick rather than practicality. Don’t get us wrong, a higher resolution does have its benefits, but since most photos tend to end up on social media which are then viewed on small screens, it’s not quite as useful.

That could change in future Samsung phones. According to a post by Tech_Reve on X, apparently Samsung is working on a 1-inch camera sensor. There aren’t too many phones with 1-inch sensors at the moment and only Xiaomi comes to mind where they used a 1-inch sensor made by Sony.

The post claims that Samsung is apparently developing their own sensor, but it is unclear when it will debut. A separate post on X by Tech_Reve also claims that for the Galaxy S25, which is coming in 2025, will no longer use Samsung’s own GN3 sensor and could use a Sony sensor, so it seems that Samsung’s 1-inch sensor could debut after that.

It is also unclear if this Sony sensor that will launch in the Galaxy S25 will be the same 1-inch sensor (or a successor) as the one found in the Xiaomi 12S, so we’ll have to wait and see. 2025 is still a very long way to go so while Tech_Reve does have a pretty good track record when it comes to leaks, it’s still a good idea to take it with a grain of salt for now.
