Sony is known for making some of the best compact sensors in the market. Both of Sony’s flagship devices and Apple’s (among others) have long relied on Sony technology, and both provide stunning picture quality for a phone. Sony is raising the bar again today with the announcement of a new mobile sensor that’s headed to phones in 2015.
Sony’s newest sensor, the Exmor RS IMX230, is a stacked CMOS sensor boasting a 21-megapixel resolution, 192 point phase-detection autofocus (!), integrated HDR and 4K video. In plain english, the Exmor RS IMX230 is going to be sharper than ever, making motion and action shots crystal clear and blur free. No more blurry shots of your kids running around the pool or your dog barking at the TV.
The Exmor RS IMX230 will be ready to ship in April 2015, just in time for Sony to release yet another flagship device. We should see the Exmor RS IMX230 in action come Mobile World Congress time.
