48-Megapixel Smartphone Sensor

July 30, 2018

Is it best to have a high-resolution smartphone camera or a lower-resolution one with better light sensitivity? Sony says you can have both with its latest stacked CMOS image sensor.


The IMX586 has the “industry’s highest pixel count” with 48 megapixels, bettering high-end cameras like its own A7R III, all squeezed into a phone-sized 8.0 mm diagonal unit. At the same time, four adjacent pixels can be added together during low light shooting, yielding a 12-megapixel sensor that delivers “bright, low noise images,” Sony said.


Sony’s signal processing tech also allows fast output speeds and dynamic range “four times greater than conventional products.” To wit, it would let you record 4K (4,096 x 2,160) video at 90 fps, and 1080p at a time-stopping 240 fps.


First samples of the 48-megapixel chip will arrive in September 2018, but Sony generally reserves new sensors for its own devices -- so you might see it first in Sony’s Xperia XZ line of premium smartphones.
