The renowned Digital Chat Station shared an interesting report about upcoming Sony sensor that's being handed over to manufacturers for testing. Some speculate it's the rumored Exmor IMX800 destined for the Xiaomi 12 Ultra.

An unnamed manufacturer is testing an upcoming 1/1.1'' Sony sensor

And it seems to be in line with the stories so far - 50MP, 1/1.1" in size, making it the biggest in the industry and just edging Samsung's 50MP 1/1.12" GN2 used in the Xiaomi 11 Ultra. The Xiaomi 12 Ultra's cameras will retain the 50MP, 48MP and 48MP resolutions, but they might still bring a hardware upgrade.

Why can they make 1/11" 16 Mp or 20 Mp sensor? It would be great

I get bored at work and they respond, so it keeps me a bit busy.

Why do you ever bother with them? Sony trolls never stop.
