Preliminary information surrounding the Motorola Frontier indicates it’ll likely be a full-fledged flagship that’ll be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Apart from allegedly featuring a 6.7-inch curved P-OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, the device is also rumored to pack a 4,500 mAh battery with support for 125W wired charging and up to 50W wireless charging.
The device is expected to launch with multiple configurations starting at 8GB RAM/128GB storage and going up to 12GB RAM/256GB storage. It is unclear if this phone will feature a microSD card slot for storage expansion. GSMArena claims the Motorola Frontier may be officially announced by July 2022.
As for Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor, we already know this module uses pixel binning to create 50MP images. In the 4×4 pixel binning mode, the resulting image would come down to a more usable 12.5MP, the resolution consumers are most likely to use. The sensor also supports capturing 8K videos at 30fps.
With all signs pointing toward an upcoming Motorola smartphone with a 200MP camera, it’ll be interesting to see how Xiaomi responds.
