Samsung recently announced a 200 MP sensor. It's supposed to be binned down to 12 MP.

One of the purposes of the high MP count is using it for digital zoom still preserving as much detail as possible, using it unbined while zooming.

The problem is once you do not use the full MP sensor gives you, you are loosing DR, loosing the ability to preserve detail in lowlight and some other side-effects. Just compare how different in low light is pic binned from 50 MPix to 12,5MPix (zoom is 1x - so actually no zooming and phone can do all computing trickery) and how looks the pic digitally zoomed 2x or more from the same lens where cropping was applied. In good light it is quite good , once the light drops ... ufff. You are just trying to squeeze the juice out of stone (tiny pixels)
