Sony announces the high-end IMX318 sensor

When smartphones and digital cameras get better by the day and you happen to provide parts for these devices, you don’t have a choice – you must get better or you will be soon forced out of business. This also applies to tech giants like Sony, which has been providing image sensors for smartphones for quite a while. To keep up with time and the competition the acclaimed Japanese company has announced the new IMX318 image sensor, which is a high-end piece of hardware.

The new sensor belongs to the Exmor R generation and is the company’s first stacked CMOS sensor with 22.5-megapixel, integrated hybrid autofocus and 3-axis electronic image stabilization, which will improve image quality and camera performance. The autofocus feature can lock focus in just 0.03 seconds, while the 3-axis electronic image stabilization ensures that handheld shots remain steady. An interesting fact is that the new Sony IMX318 sensor comes with 1.0-micrometer pixels, while its predecessor has 1.12-micrometer pixels, but Sony says there’s no drop in the image quality.

The new Exmor IMX318 image sensor will be widely adopted in high-end smartphones and tablets later this year.
