Sony-Ericsson Announces 16MP BSI Sensor

Impress: This one seems to be announced in Japan only, but Sony Ericsson presented KDDI-aimed S006 phone featuring what's said to be the world's highest resolution BSI sensor today - 16MP Sony-made imager. Not much is known about this sensor, but the phone supports 12fps burst mode at full resolution.

Unfortunately, Japan-based image sensor blog seems to stop updating recently, otherwise we could learn more about the new Sony sensor from it.


  1. Contains the first 1.1um pixel generation found in the real world. Teardown images are posted here (Warning ugly colour phone ;-)

  2. ISO12800 on a mobile phone sensor? Am I seeing things?
