Japanese company Sony has presented a new IMX586 type CMOS sensor for smartphone cameras with a record-breaking resolution of 48 megapixels. Prior to that, the pedestal featured a 40-megapixel module from Leica, implemented in the flagship Huawei P20 Pro, which still tops the rating of the specialized publication DxOMark, specializing in the analysis of optics in technology. The novelty has a pixel size of only 0.8 microns, but it uses technology in which 2×2 pixels have the same color and it is possible to combine them into a large 1.6 micron pixel to improve photo quality and reduce noise. In daylight, the photo resolution will be 8000×6000 pixels. The sensor supports recording video in 4K resolution with a frequency of 90 frames per second, as well as in slow motion with 720p quality. (480 frames per second). True, the same 40-megapixel IMX600 sensor (1 / 1.73) from Leica is integrated with DRAM, which allows you to shoot in the same format, but at 960 frames per second. It is not yet known when we will see the first flagship smartphones with a new sensor, but its delivery will begin in September. The price of the Sony IMX586 is $ 27.
