Sony’s IMX989 is a massive 1-inch camera sensor
While Samsung was the first brand to break through the 100MP and 200MP barrier in the smartphone camera segment.
Xiaomi has collaborated with Sony on the massive 1-inch IMX989 sensor, which will be used by the Xiaomi 12 S Ultra.
The Sony IMX989 should provide significantly better video and image quality than the Samsung model.
On July 4, 2022, the device will be released alongside the Xiaomi 12S and Xiaomi 12S Pro.
In addition, Xiaomi claims improved light gathering capabilities, "faster focusing," and "better dynamic range performance."
The Chinese company provided no information about the upcoming flagship's availability outside of China, but we expect to learn more very soon.
Only time will tell if Samsung's upcoming flagship phone can match the Xiaomi 12S Ultra's camera performance.
