Motorola is commonly rumored to be working on the world's first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera. It is the Samsung HP1 sensor that went official a few months ago. Some of its specifications and internal codename "Frontier" were revealed in a report earlier this month. A new report from Ronald Quandt of WinFuture.de offers a render, corroborates those specs, and claims the codename to be Frontier 22.
The alleged Motorola Frontier 22 is claimed to have a 6.67-inch P-OLED curved display with a punch-hole. The panel will support 144Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ content, and DCI-P3 wide color gamut. The processor is said to be Qualcomm SM8475 which is assumed to be a sort of "Plus" variant of the current-gen Snap 8 Gen 1. The configuration options include 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, 8GB RAM with 256GB storage, and 12GB RAM with 256GB storage.
The phone will have a triple camera setup on the back. The big circular camera in the render is the 200-megapixel sensor with OIS that we talked about in the beginning. It will be accompanied by a 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor and a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor with 2x zoom. The front camera will be a 60-megapixel sensor.
The battery capacity is reported to be 4,500mAh and with 125W wired fast charging and 30W/50W wireless charging. Other noteworthy features are said to include a USB Type-C port with DisplayPort 1.4, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and GPS. It will boot Android 12 out of the box and launch is tipped for July 2022.
