    Someday Nokia will have a gigapixel phone! I just hope I live long enough to upgrade to one! :)

    Doubtful. I mean, it's certainly possible with future technology to have such a sensor in a phone, but due to just the physics of how light works you'd pass the point where refraction would destroy any further detail long, long, long before that. The future of high-end camera technology is (unfortunately for cell phone makers) going to be in larger sensors and lenses. Notice this photo was made with a whole bunch of other photos stitched together, and not one single "2 gigapixel" camera. That's because if you took even a "full frame" 35mm camera and put such a sensor on it you'd get nowhere near this resolution from a single photo (even setting aside any potential depth-of-field issues).

    You could maybe get a "medium format" camera with such a sensor and start to get in the territory of utilizing such a sensor though (probably would pass the refraction point closer to 1GP than 2 even still, though).

    All of what is being done was impossible just a few years ago. We have no idea what innovations will happen in the coming years. Someone is working on something, somewhere that us out of the box crazy and will change all the rules. Just wait...
