25 February 2021
The P40 series had 1/1.28" sensors. Samsung just announced a 1/1.12" sensor, this Sony sensor will be larger than both of them.

SigmaR, 25 Feb 2021Nice, but if the lens is not good, the sensor size is almos... moreTrue. A larger sensor needs a lens with a larger effective diameter, if the field of view is the same. If the effective diameter doesn't increase, then either the f number will be bad or the field of view will be larger, in both cases it wouldn't capture more light per time from an object.

Personally I am not akin to photography but who doesn't want a great camera when we pay 1000 bucks? Would be so happy to see the photography bosses step in.

Currently they both offer one of the best compact, smaller than FF, an APSC sensor camera. They both have experience more managable compact camera sizes, with high quality imaging system.

imagine Google pixel and this bigger sensor, it will be really good I guess

good news but even 1 inch sensor won't deliver without equally awesome optics and image processing.

Looking forward to colors, low light performance of main camera and tele zoom capability.

Shui8, 25 Feb 2021You are right. And still they call it DSLR. Its mirrorless ... moreTime for the conventional camera manufacturers to strike deals with phone manufacturers and help both. Maybe LG or hTC would be a better choice as they are struggling too. Win win for both. Can't wait to see Canon/Nikon develop a special sensor for LG/HTC.

But for sure, phones are slowly killing compact digital camera that using 1" camera, even if glass lens is used. Easy to carry, pocketable, with all in 1 smartphone + point&shoot beast.

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2021finally a phone to replace my DSLRPhones will never replace dedicated dslr or mirrorless cameras since the lenses on smartphones are physically smaller and made from MUCH more inferior glass than even budget interchangeable lens from Chinese companies, let alone top-tier glass from Sony, Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Zeiss, Leica, etc. The sensors may get bigger for phones but the lenses will never even come within reach of any ILC glass.

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2021p30 p40 disappointed We all know it doesnt. In fact, 2 years already P30 still can fight toe to toe with today's flagship camera phone and even better in certain aspect.

What???

I just bought P40 about month & a half ago 😑.

Still, its the best point & shoot smartphone camera system I've ever own.

Some are better some are worse. But in the end of the day, the one thing that matters most, are the Digital signal Processor (DSP) and the software.
