Qualcomm announced earlier, that its existing range of mobile processors are quite capable when it comes to high-resolution images. You see, it is not just the camera that does all the work, the processor has a major role in processing the images by making use of an Image Signal Processor (ISP). The company said that chipsets such as Snapdragon 855, 845, 710, 675 and 670 can support single cameras with up to 192-megapixel.
Qualcomm has also said that they are expecting a 64-megapixel and even 100-megapixel+ camera sensors by the end of 2019. According to Judd Heape, Qualcomm’s Senior Director of Product Management a number of manufacturers are now working with sensor makers to try and get 64 and 100-megapixel+ sensors on smartphones by the end of this year. While we don’t have any information about these manufacturers, but there is a possibility that we could see flagships by the end of 2019 featuring a 100-megapixel+ camera.
