Motorola Frontier 22 image leaks online, fueling launch talk

The Motorola Frontier 22 is expected to have the world’s first 200-megapixel camera on a smartphone. It first appeared in January this year with some impressive specs. But leaks around the phone have now begun to pop up at a much faster rate, hinting at an imminent launch. Last week, details on the specs and design of the alleged device were leaked and now we get to see the first image of the Motorola Frontier 22.

Notebookcheck was the first to report about the image after it appeared on Weibo.  The image shows the phone in white with a rectangular camera module. Interestingly the module appears to be quite similar to that of the Xiaomi Civi. It has a big main sensor at the top and two accompanying lenses beneath it. The module has text that reads “200MP HP1 OIS f/2.2”engraved on it, which indicates that the Motorola Frontier 22 will ship with a 200-megapixel sensor as was hinted at by previous leaks. The OIS badge suggests that the camera system will have stabilization on board. Motorola has used a Samsung sensor on this device that features a 1/1.22-inch sensor size, 0.64 micrometer native pixel size, and 16-in-1 pixel-binning pipeline.
