High-end smartphone cameras are currently dominated in terms of sensors by big names like Samsung ISOCELL and Sony IMX (even if the latter may soon be replaced by a new one); however, SK Hynix apparently intends to challenge them with a new line.
The South Korean semiconductor OEM is already active in this market: for example, the company (and not Samsung) is reported to have submitted a 50 MP sensor in 2022. on devices like the Galaxy A13.
But now she may intend to “rearrange“its CIS division will move away from such cameras and towards such cameras as the latest flagship IMX800 series or perhaps even the ISOCELL HP2, rather than trying to take up to 80% of the market share, a whole that has been consistently occupied by Samsung and Sony.”
As such, it may stop supporting most of the major resolutions (32MP, 13MP, 64MP, etc.) that it now includes and will benefit from this new rumored strategy.
On the other hand, this could be a risky move as the mobile CIS market may contract slightly as demand for new smartphones also declines.

Soon after graduation, I became a professional writer and editor. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to an experience in biotechnology that convinced me of its potential to transform our health, our environment, and our lives in general. Over time this has grown into an all-encompassing interest in more aspects of technology: I can never write enough about the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy and all things broadcasting. And coffee.
