Sony is working on a 100MP image sensor for mid-range smartphones

Sony is developing a new image sensor – a 100MP sensor – for smartphones – a first for the company. 100MP sensors are nothing new for smartphones, but a Sony sensor is something new to look for as smartphones are heavily dominated by sensors due to SAMSUNGespecially in the mid-range segment.
The only two 100MP – or more – sensors on the market are from Samsung – HMX and HM2 – almost only seen on smartphones in the mid-range segment. The majority of smartphones in the segment have also opted for Samsung’s 50MP JN1 or GN5 Sensor. However, with the alleged 100MP sensor from Sony, things could change in the future.
According to a recent post by tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo, Sony is developing a new 100MP CMOS sensor that will appear in upcoming mid-range smartphones, which will rival Samsung’s 108MP HM2 sensor. The informant suggests that the aforementioned sensor will be part of Sony’s IMX8 smartphone sensor.
Furthermore, Sony is also working on a new IMX9 series large sensor. According to experts, the upcoming IMX9 series sensor will replace Samsung’s 50MP GN2 sensor, launched last year alongside Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra. Earlier rumors suggested that a new 50MP Sony image sensor called IMX989 was supposed to launch alongside Xiaomi 12 Poles. The tipper also suggests that the sensor will be close to 1 inch in size.
Meanwhile, Samsung is also working on a 200MP sensor, which is confirmed to debut on the Motorola Frontier. Also, there’s an upgraded 200MP ISOCELL HP3 sensor under development at Samsung that could launch next year with the Galaxy S23 series, and it’s rumored to be 1/1.12-inch larger, meaning is it will be bigger than GN2 sensor.
