In the last few weeks, Sony’s IMX978 and IMX890 were reportedly exposed with a double-frame super large bottom sensor for photo and video. As reported by TechGoing, the IMX978 is a 1-inch flagship CIS with 52Mp 1.55μm luxury specifications, known as the double-frame super bottom of the photo video two hands.
On the other hand, the IMX890 is said to be a conventional large-bottom sensor, which will be widely used in the current mid-range cell phone market, similar to the IMX 586 and IMX 766.
Sony’s IMX890: A 50.3 Megapixel CMOS Image Sensor with Square Pixels for Color Cameras
However, as we just discovered in a tweet from the popular, reliable tipster, Sony has uncovered the new IMX890-AAJH5-C with some general description and application. The leak revealed Sony’s IMX890 is a diagonal 10.240 mm (Type 1/1.56) 50.3 Mega-Pixel CMOS image sensor with square pixels for color cameras.
Additionally, the images shared by the tipster show that the IMX890 is a type 1/1.56, 50.3MP, QBC CFA, and 2×2 OCL with full resolution output@30fps. Moving to the general description and application shows that the image sensor is an IMVOOD in diaconal 10 240 mm (Tune 1/1 581 50 2 Men’s naval CMOS with a high frame rate.
