You don’t need a 200MP phone, but Motorola is making one anyway

Once upon a time, 8 megapixels on a smartphone camera was a big deal. 50 megapixels used to be impressive. Then 100 MP phones arrived and that was neat too, I guess.

But does anyone really want 200 megapixels? That’s what Motorola seems to be banking on with its upcoming flagship phones. 

Lenovo’s general manager posted an image teasing a 200-megapixel smartphone on Weibo (Lenovo owns Motorola). The post didn’t reveal much about the device beyond a July release date, although a separate post did tease a foldable device (presumably the Razr 3) sporting the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip.
