Nachdem beim letzten Ausflug in die 1"-Welt ja durch den Crop nur ein Teilbereich genutzt wurde, ist nun ein neuer 1" Sensor im Anlauf - speziell für Smartphones entwickelt, also kein halbherziges Recycling:
Sony has a series of new sensors in development or ready to use, from the 127 MP IMX661 CMOS equipped with global shutter function to a not yet officially announced IMX989… now confirmed by Xiaomi.
Xiaomi’s new 12S Ultra smartphone, which the company will reveal on July 4, features a Sony IMX989, a 1-inch type image camera sensor that may well change the future of smartphone imaging.
The images now made available by Xiaomi don’t tell the whole story, so we will have to wait a few more days, but Xiaomi claims that the custom Sony IMX989 sensor is used with no crop… adding that (and this is machine translated from Chinese) "Compared to iPhone 13 Pro Max, the light-sensitive area is increased by 172% and the light-sensitive capability is increased by 76%, while the photo speed is increased by 32.5% and the boot speed is increased by 11%. Sony IMX989+Leica+Xiaomi Imaging Brain, the pearls complement each other".
