Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is rumored to feature an unreleased 200MP ISOCELL camera, which could have Hexa2Pixel technology, as a trademark application just emerged on the web. Earlier, the company filed a trademark application with EUIPO for Hexa2pixel which could be used for camera sensor marketing.
According to the information, the Hexa2pixel trademark application was filed by Samsung on July 19, 2022, while the current status is “Application under examination.” The company mentioned that the name is related to image sensors under semiconductor devices, which hints at the next ISOCELL camera sensor.
Probably, Samsung will use the Hexa2pixel name in the marketing of its next-gen 200MP camera sensor (exclusive to Galaxy S23 Ultra) to define the pixel binding technology. The spelling Hexa2pixel seems catchy as well, which could be meant as 36-fold pixel binning, at least theoretically.
It’s worth mentioning that the Korean tech giant has already introduced tetrapixel and nanopixel technology that combine four pixels and nine pixels, respectively, in order to capture more light in low light conditions or dark. You can see the patent application below, in the screenshot.
Galaxy S23 Ultra
The Galaxy S22 Ultra was initially rumored to come with a 200MP camera sensor, but it didn’t happen as Samsung used an improved variant of its 108MP ISOCELL camera. For a long time, rumors circulated that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will become the first Samsung phone to have a massive 200MP camera.
Tipster IceUniverse recently claimed that the Galaxy S23 Ultra is likely to use a 200MP camera sensor by Samsung ISOCELL, however, it has not been released yet. Seeing the trademark application development, we can expect, that the company is gradually working on the 200MP lens for the next flagship smartphone.
