Sony IMX800 detailed: 1/1.49″ sensor with 54MP resolution

There were many leaks about a sensor called “Sony IMX800”, which was supposed to be huge and was going to be featured in multiple flagships. There may have been a case of mistaken identity, so let’s set the record straight.

The actual Sony IMX800 made its debut with the Honor 70 series. The resolution is an unusual 54MP or more specifically 8,768 x 6,144px. With support for 4-to-1 pixel binning, most phones using this sensor will likely default to 13.5MP or 12MP resolution.

As for size, the sensor has a 1/1.49” optical format. Not as huge as some made out to be, but still fairly…

Very interesting. Check out our latest tone…
