Sony has recently announced a new 22.5 Megapixel CMOS Exmor Sensor, IMX318 for smartphones. This Sony Exmor RS image sensor is the successor for IMX230 which featured 1/ 2.4 sensor and 1.12μm unit pixel size but it seems that Sony has worked in the sensor to make it better.
The Sony IMX318 boasts a 1/ 2.6 stacked CMOS image sensor and 1.0μm unit pixel size which according to company claims is the industry’s smallest unit pixels and is also the first stacked CMOS image sensor with built-in hybrid autofocus and 3-axis electronic image stabilization for video. The IMX318 image sensor is designed to capture image stills of those decisive moments reliably in high quality as well as high resolution video without any chances of getting blur picture.
Well, if you are thinking about when this sensor will be arriving in market and which will be the device to get the first taste of it, then you can expect the Sony IMX318 CMOS Exmor Sensor to arrive sometimes in May 2016 along with their latest flagship, the Sony Xperia Z6. Stay tuned for more updates.
