Fewer megapixels, less quality? Not necessarily

The Galaxy A54 should opt for a 50-megapixel sensor, while the Galaxy A53 had 64-megapixels on its main sensor.

Whether that makes sense in photography or not (the experts will tell you it doesn’t), Samsung, like many other brands, has tended to cram more and more megapixels into its smartphone cameras. The rumor also conjures up a 200-megapixel sensor for the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Contrary to all expectations, the Suwon company would go the opposite way with the Galaxy A54.

That’s what the Dutch site Galaxy Club claims. According to them, the Galaxy A54 would have a 50-megapixel sensor, while the Galaxy A53 displayed 64-megapixels.

Fewer pixels is not necessarily worse

Unfortunately, the specialist media are not aware of any more details on the main module of the A54. Keep in mind that a sensor with fewer megapixels does not necessarily mean that the photos will be worse. It can even be the opposite. In 2022, it’s not uncommon to see a range of mid-range phones with a good quality 50-megapixel, while the entry-level comes in at a slightly inferior 64-megapixel.

Let’s add that a sensor with fewer megapixels of the same size tends to produce less dark shots when you take photos at maximum resolution without merging the pixels between them. On the other hand, with a sensor that has fewer pixels, we can lose some sharpness. In any case, keep in mind that you shouldn’t feel any difference in normal recording that uses pixel binning to output photos in 12 megapixels. The quality or lack thereof therefore depends on other specifications.

Otherwise, we don’t know much about the Galaxy A54 yet. Some rumors point to the lack of a depth sensor for portrait mode. Of course, we expect One UI 5 (Android 13) to equip this phone. Last year, the Galaxy A53 was released on March 25, 2022, so we can expect a similar timeline.
