The San Diego, California based company is a major player enabling better photography experiences higher than phones. On the other hand, recently manufacturer claimed in updated specification sheets that their chipsets already support 192 Megapixel cameras.
At initial, with no one believed in fresh specifications and termed it as a marketing gimmick. Presently, above a telephonic session with media, Judd Heape, Senior Director of Gadget Management acknowledged the difference. He explained that the present chipsets presently support 192 megapixels, but with no options which includes MFNR (multi-frame noise reduction) and ZSL (zero shutter lag). In other words, if manufacturers need to utilize noise reduction and zero lag options, they have to limit hardware at 30fps or 60fps modes with the lower resolution.
“We updated the specs to prove what the world’s biggest image sensor that can be connected to Snapdragons,” Heape asserted during his higher than an hour-long conversation with Indian technology journalists.
It means chipsets this kind of as Sd 670, Snapdragon 675, Snapdragon 710, Sd 845, and the Snapdragon 855 Additionally supports 48 MP digital cameras without having any software/hardware upgrade.
Currently, no manufacturer supports 192 Megapixel sensor, but as according to Judd, higher than 48 resolution would be a reality soon. Some OEMs are working to unveield smartphones carrying 100MP and 64MP digital camera sensors by this year. He didn’t tell any more details this kind of as launch date and names of OEMs.
Talking about the HDR10+ video recording future perspectives, Judd added, Qualcomm is working to bring it on Sd 865. Although, the company’s PR team quickly stated that the name Sd 865 hasn’t been finalized.
