A sample of Motorola's Edge 30 Ultra 200MP camera has been released online

We recently reported that Motorola was working on a new smartphone that could be the first smartphone that takes advantage of Samsung's 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor, which was announced earlier this month at Samsung's developer conference. 

This phone in question is the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, and if you're wondering what a photo taken with a 200MP sensor may look like, you're in luck since we're going to show you a photo taken with one.

As reported on Weibo by Motorola China's General Manager Chen Jin, he has shared a photograph taken by the camera in question, indicating that it is a Motorola camera.

Having said that, we do want to remind you that you shouldn't get too excited just yet, so go easy on yourself. It is important to realize that megapixels do not mean everything, and more megapixels do not mean better pictures.

In addition to the sensor size, the aperture of the lens, the lighting conditions, and many other important factors, consideration should also be given. 

As well, when photos are uploaded to social media platforms, they get compressed, which means that some of their details are lost, so the photo may look decent, but it isn't necessarily representative of its capabilities.

The photo was also binned using a 4-by-1 pixel process, which Jin thinks is better than the 9-by-1 pixel binning used in other devices that use 108MP sensors.

However, assuming that the camera is not the only reason to be excited about the phone, there are plenty of other reasons to get excited.

This phone is expected to feature a 6.73-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset with 12GB of RAM, making it quite a powerhouse.

There is no word yet regarding the launch date of the phone, but keep checking back here soon for further details as they become available.
