The Motorola Frontier was the subject of leaked renderings and specs earlier this year, with a 200MP main camera rumored to be included. Evan Blass, a seasoned tipster, has now released updated renders that demonstrate the size of the camera bump.
The render depicts a two-tiered camera bump, with the secondary cameras on the first tier and the ultra-high-resolution main camera on the top tier. Look at the image at the top of the page to see what I’m talking about.
According to Blass, the main camera has a 194MP sensor. It’s unclear whether Motorola is utilizing a separate sensor or if it’s simply cropping the 200MP HP1 Samsung camera sensor. It wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen the latter approach; Sony’s Xperia Pro-I, for example, utilizes a 20MP sensor but reduces it to 12MP and sells it as such.
In either case, this would represent a significant advancement in smartphone camera resolution. However, whether it will result in better picture quality is definitely still up in the air.
According to WinFuture and TechnikNews, the phone will have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor, a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED display, and a 4,500mAh battery. The phone is also claimed to contain a 50MP ultrawide camera and a 12MP 2x tele lens, as well as 125W wired charging speeds and 50W wireless charging.
The Motorola Frontier is expected to be released in July 2022, so we still have a few months to wait for an official announcement.
