If you want a new smartphone in 2020 with an insane 200-megapixel camera, then you're going to be using Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 -- as it is the only SoC on the market that supports 200MP camera sensors.
Snapdragon 865 supports up to a 200-megapixel camera sensor, but that doesn't mean every single smartphone will ramp up with a 200MP sensor out of the box, but there will be smartphone makers that want to cram the biggest and most badass beast mode camera into a smartphone and if they want that... there's only one choice for the SoC: Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865.
Snapdragon 865 can not only shoot 4K 60FPS HDR video, but it can snap 64-megapixel photos at the same time thanks to the improvements Qualcomm made to the Spectra 480 ISP.
Spectra 480 ISP provides 16% lower power consumption when shooting intensive 4K video, up to 18% more detail, and a huge 40% increase in pixel processing for noise reduction in low light situations.
We also have 9x more autofocus points, which will provide some future smartphones with insane autofocus abilities.
Note: Qualcomm flew me out to the Snapdragon Tech Summit, covering my hotel and flights. Many thanks for the geek out in Maui, Hawaii!
