Nick Tegrataker, 03 Sep 2021Its spec sheet quite literally states it's 1/1.57".That's bad GN1 has 1/1.31" sensor

Nah, I'm waiting for 1 giga pixel.

Like check out the macro samples In a phone review. They barely make average photos. I would say even 12mp is enough but more mp could be beneficial. For example like the 200mp one they made it so it binned Into 50mp. And 50mp brings extra detail. Plus if u aren't forced to use the 200mp either. There are a gazillion more phones without thta high mp.

The reason they'll have higher MP count is for AI and video recording, both of those factors benefit from higher megapixel counts.

Mobilemaster, 02 Sep 2021Sony does not have any 1 inch sensor for smart phones yet.I was laughing when these guys claimed that Huawei will debut a 1" Sony sensor on their latest flagship.
I knew there wasn't any 1" smartphone sensor from Sony in the pipeline.

YUKI93, 02 Sep 2021870, 750G, and 690 are also modern chipsets and yet they al... moreThey are a year old.
Current year chips have triple ISP.
The 200mp sensor will be released next year, it won't be paired with those old chips.. So your claim that processing power is not there is false

2MP crisp and high-quality photo is enough in real world situations (family/vacation etc. photos), so 200MP seems a huge overkill. They just need to work on a better sub-10MP sensor which is more than enough in phones and stop the MP-count BS game.

Mampara, 02 Sep 2021So what is the difference between isocell JN1 and GN5 50mp?Basically JN1 is midrange 50MP and GN5 is flagship 50MP
Like the difference between Samsung's 48mp GM1 and Sony's 48Mp imx586

OhNom, 02 Sep 2021Simply instead of joining 4-1 makes 16-1, joining 4 groups ... moreYea that's right

Mobilemaster, 02 Sep 2021You may be right, but there was a person or 2 here who said... moreSimply instead of joining 4-1 makes 16-1, joining 4 groups of 4 pixels giving the binning of 16, it is totally possible physically, it is not that the technology advances fast, the physics cannot be broken, which is not possible make a bining of 4 and want to make a bining of 9 with the same sensor
