The megapixel wars of the many years ago have led to manufacturers settling down for one of three sensor resolutions; 12, 16 and 24 megapixels. The 12-megapixel resolution was considered the sweet spot between quality and quantity, with 16- and 24-megapixel offerings being more for those who needed more resolution. However, with all three image resolutions, there have been a number of shortcomings we have all come to accept and live with. Thankfully, the year 2019 will see many of them change. Huawei brought the megapixel race back to life, and now with Sony and Samsung also announcing their versions of 48-megapixel sensors, things are only about to get better. The Sony IMX586 and the Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensors both sports 48-megapixel resolution, but more importantly, are much larger, measuring 1/2 inch diagonally. With an increase in megapixels and size, here are some of the benefits you can expect from these sensors right off the bat.
