Sony is developing another camera sensor with Oppo, this time for the Find X3 series

Yordan, 28 December 2020

Oppo introduced a new camera sensor by Sony called IMX766 in its latest smartphone, the Reno5 Pro+ 5G. One leakster from China claims both companies are going even further in their partnership and we should expect yet another new sensor - IMX789. It will be initially reserved for the Oppo Find X3 flagship series, before arriving at other manufacturers.

Sony and Oppo seem to have a great business relationship in developing custom sensors. The Oppo Find X2 Pro’s main camera arrived with an IMX689 sensor that was 1/1.43” in size or 11.2 mm in physical diagonal, which is massive for a smartphone. It is 48 MP with a Quad Bayer filter, meaning it can output 12 million 2.24 µm pixels.

There is also dual native ISO that reacts differently in various light scenarios and Oppo equipped the cam with an f/1.7 aperture with a lens with 25 mm equivalent focal length.

All these specs were impressive back then and remain impressive to this day. Looking at the IMX789’s name, it is highly plausible it will be the direct successor of the IMX689. We expect the processing capabilities of the sensor to improve and maybe the physical amount of pixels to get even higher - who knows, we might see another company sport the 108 MP solution.

The bigger question is, however, will it be reserved for the Oppo Find X3 Pro, will the vanilla Oppo Find X3 get it as well, and could we even see a third option - Oppo Find X3 Pro+.
