As stated by IceUniverse, the 600MP sensor will bring ISOCELL imaging technology which is the current flagship technology on the system. Currently there are three cameras on the world that’s over 100MP which is the HM1, HM2 and HMX.
As 4K and 8K videos are getting popular, the camera is able to compress and decompress the picture taken on the 600MP camera. In the current state, a 600MP lens is still impractical because the camera will be largely protruded up to 2.2cm! If the width can goes down to a new level, this could be brought to a smartphone.
