The three cameras on the phone will all have new and upgraded sensors, and all three will have a resolution of 48MP, the rumour claims. Plus, one of them will feature a variable aperture that ranges from f/1.2 to f/4.0. The three cameras will naturally shoot at 12MP resolution because they have 48MP resolution with pixel binning. The source claims that the ultrawide shooter will use a 1/1.3″ IMX803 imager while the main camera will have a 1″ IMX903 sensor.
On Monday, Sony is hosting a gaming event, and we might or might not see a brand-new smartphone there. However, reports indicate that a further launch, the second-generation, photography-focused Xperia Pro-I, will take place in November.
The telephoto sensor will be a new version of the 1/1.7” IMX557, which we previously saw in the Xperia 1 II and Xperia 5 IV. However in those two it had native 12MP resolution and the successor is moving to a Quad-Bayer setup. We can expect a new ISP also to arrive with this alleged Xperia Pro-I Mark II whenever it goes official. Last year’s Pro-I arrived in late October so the timeline suggested by the report isn’t implausible.
