UPDATE: In contrast to recent rumors suggesting no major camera updates to the Samsung Galaxy S22, it now seems that this brand new handset will be featuring a whopping 200MP sensor designed by Olympus. This is almost double the 108MP ISOCELL HM3 sensor that the Samsung Galaxy S21 currently houses.

This report comes from a Korean publication, via GSMArena. Apparently, Olympus originally contacted Samsung to explore a partnership. Samsung agreed to the terms and now the Samsung Galaxy S22 will feature a five-lens Olympus-branded camera.
