Sony is Second Sourcing Sensors for Samsung Smartphones

It was brought to my attention that Sony sells sensors not only to iPhone 4S, but also to its main rival - Samsung Galaxy S II. While the initial Chipworks and SystemPlus reverse engineering reports found Samsung's own 8MP 1.4um sensors inside Galaxy S II, the more recent Chipworks report of China Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S II (Model I9108) discovered Sony IMX105PQ inside.

  1. You're right, and the I9100 model was also dual sourced from Samsung and Sony with the S5K3H2 and IMX105 CIS.
