By the way, 200 MP is not the limit. Back in April, Samsung announced the development of a sensor with a record 600 MP resolution. According to the company, such sensors “will be able to capture more detail than the human eye.” But, most likely, they will not be used in smartphones, but in drones, autonomous vehicles, IoT devices, etc.
