According to the news of the digital chat station, after the 1-inch IMX989 solution landed on phones, mobile manufacturers are pre-researching the M43 format solution.
According to the news from the digital chat station, the current flagship video phones of Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo will use the 1-inch IMX989 CMOS, including its next-generation proofing solution. The pre-research plans of phone manufacturers will once again achieve size breakthroughs, and some phone manufacturers are already customizing the M43 format main camera.
In the field of cameras, there have been few new products of card cameras with the 1-inch format and M43 format in recent years. One of the reasons is that the card camera market has been gradually replaced by high-end phones. The CMOS area of the M43 format is about 17.313mm, and the 1-inch CMOS of the Sony Black Card is about 13.28.8mm. Under the premise of ensuring that the optical quality of the lens does not become a shortcoming, the M43 format phone will have an unprecedented camera experience.
In July 2022, Mi 12S Ultra will be the world premiere of Sony’s 1-inch IMX989 flagship sensor. After that, IMX989 is open to other manufacturers. It is expected that high-end flagship video phones will still be dominated by 1-inch CMOS in recent years.
The IMX989 parameter information is as follows:
The actual size of the CMOS is 1.02 inches, 50 million pixels, using a 4:3 ratio instead of the conventional 3:2 ratio. The IMX989 adopts an advanced manufacturing process, has a faster readout speed, a Quad-Bayer color array that takes into account light input and resolution, and an Octa-PD phase-detection focusing system that allows each sub-pixel to have focusing capabilities. This CMOS supports pixel fusion, and the fusion pixel area can reach 3.2µm, which is more suitable for low-light shooting.
