Samsung is always being an extraordinary company in making camera technology.

Now Samsung is the first company who is working on a 600 MP Camera Sensor technology the company has an ambitious plan to make a camera sensor that goes beyond the human eye.

As per reports,  Yongin Park, Executive Vice President of Samsung’s Sensor Business had expressed that the company could create a camera sensor that can go beyond the human eye, which in camera technology, said to have 576-megapixels.

Now, it appears that Samsung has started working on the same. The South Korean giant is developing a 600-megapixel camera sensor which features 0.8µm pixels and is 1/.0.57″ big. But, the company has a long way to go as the current prototype takes up about 12 percent of the smartphone’s area and results in a 22mm bulge.

The company is reportedly looking to employ the ISOCELL pixel binning technology to keep the camera bump in check. However, before we see the 600MP camera, we expect to see sensors like 150MP and 250MP.

Samsung’s focus for such a high-megapixel count camera sensor isn’t just smartphone photography but much beyond that. It believes that the technology could have several other use-cases, such as in the medical field and agriculture.
