Yesterday, Monday saw as Sony introduced a new mobile image sensor. A 21 megapixel sensor with a capacity of superior autofocus to offered by the Japanese brand so far and the ability to record video in 4K. We all know the predilection of Apple by this type of sensors, so we could be in future sensor of the iPhone and iPad.
The method of manufacture of the same makes that be one of the “finest” sensors on the market, It would be a plus for Apple, that so interested is shake their device to make them lighter and more manageable. This new 21 megapixel sensor brings focus 192 points It will allow you to focus on objects and people on the move almost instantly.
This sensor will also have, how not, ability to remove photographs HDR. Sony will distribute this sensor from April 2015 and it is also expected that there will be a 16 Megapixel camera of the same version. Perhaps this is the sensor that interests to Apple, since they are not close friends embark on the megapixel war from Cupertino.
In short, we find that this sensor arrive in time for the presentation of the future iPhone 6s and 6s plus, but perhaps not among this generation and is the next, since the sensor that mounts the current iPhone 6 suspected that is the ISX014 sensor that Sony introduced in October 2012. But with the interested is Apple in the 4K resolutions perhaps of this qualitative leap.
As always, only time will tell what.
