You could say that 48-megapixel camera sensors are a dime-a-dozen nowadays. But what about such technology squeezed into a smartphone?

Sony has unveiled a new 48-megapixel smartphone camera CMOS sensor—a record for such a format. Each pixel has a size of 0.8 nanometers, which makes it possible to fit them all on such a ?-inch sensor. 

“The new Sony sensor features 48 effective megapixels, a pixel count which rivals that of high-performance SLR cameras, making it possible to capture beautiful, high-resolution images even with a smartphone,” says Sony.

Of course, you might be worried that all of those clustered pixels would lead to poor low light sensitivity. But Sony has you covered: The sensor is designed to shoot both low-resolution/low-light and high-resolution/high-light images. Learn more about the Sony IMX586 sensor, here
