The camera is one of the key functions of smartphones, and various manufacturers are constantly improving camera functions. Better photosensitive elements are often the highlight of publicity. Now it is reported that Sony, a major photosensitive element manufacturer, is about to launch two new photosensitive elements. , and the main camera of the vivo X80 series will be adopted first.

The Chinese whistleblower digital chat station revealed that Sony will launch two new photosensitive elements of the IMX9 and IMX8 series, both of which are designed in large size and have good specifications, while the vivo X80 series will use the IMX866, which is a photosensitive element. It will use RGBW design and have a native 16:11 1/1.49-inch large area.
The Sony IMX866 has multiple shooting ratios. Since the photosensitive element is different from the commonly used shooting ratio, the vivo X80 will take a 4:3 range when taking pictures. The diagonal size of the photosensitive element used is about 1/1.56 inch. The full sensor area will be used, and the Zeiss video recording function will be featured. The basic X80 ultra-wide-angle and portrait cameras will continue to use the Sony IMX663, which is the same as the previous generation.
RGBW photosensitive element is not a new technology. Huawei P8 has adopted RGBW photosensitive element launched by Sony. Adding white pixels can improve the photosensitive ability. However, the lack of a set of green pixels also affects the color performance. It did not cause a trend at the time. The algorithm and performance of the camera have greatly increased, and the color problem can be reinforced through software. Vivo also published related technologies as early as 2020. What kind of breakthroughs can Vivo bring to the camera, I believe it will come later Soon you will see results.
