Sony announces new smartphone camera sensor featuring 48 effective megapixels

Sony announces new smartphone camera sensor featuring 48 effective megapixels

Is it best to have a high-resolution smartphone camera or a lower-resolution one with better light sensitivity? The ultra-small pixels mean that the new image sensor comes in at just 8mm diagonal despite the impressive pixel count.

The new sensor also uses the Quad Bayer color filter array, where adjacent 2×2 pixels come in the same color, which allows for a higher sensitivity shooting.

With the new revelation, Sony has raised the smartphone camera standards to a whole new level.

Wimbledon 2018, Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal Semi-final
And that's where he'll meet Rafael Nadal for the 52nd time . "Always it is a big challenge to face Novak", Nadal said. Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro celebrates winning his the fourth round match against France's Gilles Simon .

KitGuru Says: There always seems to be a focus on images, when smartphones are frequently used to record videos too. On the contrary, Huwaei P20 is only able to achieve 40MP sensor which also packs a Quad Bayer arrangement.

Sony has announced a new image sensor for smartphones that features 48 effective megapixels (8,000x6,000 pixels). With that, this is why it was possible to pack in the 48MP into the 1/2 type unit and it's a flawless solution for smartphones that don't really allow as much as space a DSLR.

"Original Sony exposure control technology and signal processing functionality are built into the image sensor, enabling real-time output and a superior dynamic range that is four times greater than conventional products", the company notes. This is especially useful in low-light situations where the colors of those four adjacent pixels are added up, resulting in a high-quality, low-noise 12 megapixel image. Perhaps the novelty of the sensor will be enough for DxOMark to actually put Sony's flagships to the test for the world to see where high-end Xperia phones truly stand. Pricing and Availability: Sony says samples of the new sensor are set to ship in September 2018 for 3,000 JPY (26.93 USD). Going by the spec sheet, other features of the sensor include full frame burst capture at 30 fps and support for 4K video recording at 90 fps and 1080p video recording at 240 fps.
