New Sony Image Technology Paves the Way for Thinner iPhones With Better Cameras

New Sony Image Technology Paves the Way for Thinner iPhones With Better Cameras

Sony has officially announced a new image sensor technology alongside a new 13-megapixel back-illuminated sensor, reports MacRumors, which could pave the way for even thinner iPhones that can capture even higher quality photos and video.

iPhone 4S camera

This image sensor layers the pixel section containing formations of back-illuminated structure pixels onto chips containing the circuit section for signal processing, which is in place of supporting substrates for conventional back-illuminated CMOS image sensors. This structure achieves further enhancement in image quality, superior functionalities and a more compact size that will lead to enhanced camera evolution.

The sensors include build-in signal processing, as well as a new “RGBW” coding standard which adds white-light sensors to the traditional red, green and blue. This offers better low-light performance. Further, enhanced HDR tech will improve video shooting under bright light.

The company is set to begin sampling the sensors in March, making them an excellent potential target for Apple’s next-gen iPhone, expected to be launched sometime in summer or fall of 2012.
