Sony has revealed the first customers for its upcoming 50MP LYTIA mobile sensor, LYTIA LYT900, advanced imaging chip will debut in Xiaomi’s 14 Ultra before expanding to flagships from Vivo and OPPO, LYTIA LYT800 sensor in OPPO’s launched Find N3 foldable phone.
LYT 800 is Sony’s first image sensor to use a dual-layer transistor pixel structure, which can achieve high signal saturation, Exmor T CMOS Sensor Work in Xperia 1 V, there’s list all LYTIA brand new CMOS, LYT900:1-inch massive size sensor with 50MP, LYT800: 53MP and a dual-layer transistor pixel structure, LYT700: 1/1.56″ 50MP etc.
LYTIA LYT900 uses a 1/0.98″ sensor size, enabling it to capture more light and detail than typical mobile sensors, 50MP resolution and large 1″ type sensor ensures superior image quality.
Sony is launching the LYTIA product line to meet demand from smartphone users wanting more creative photographic freedom and capabilities. LYTIA LYT900 represents the pinnacle of that ambition in a smartphone-ready package.
Compared to Sony’s prior IMX989 sensor, the LYT900 gains several key improvements, includes an upgraded 22nm production process enabling lower power draw.
Sony LYTIA LYT900 also introduces Dual conversion gain technology, which essentially combines two sensitivities in one pixel for a staggering dynamic range up to 14.5 stops, marked jump over the IMX989’s 13.5 stops seeing xiaomi 13 ultra.
Xiaomi emerged as the first adopter for the advanced LYTIA LYT900, securing its use in the upcoming Xiaomi 14 Ultra, sensor will also find its way into flagship handsets from Chinese rivals Vivo and OPPO.
Having three major Chinese OEMs leveraging the same marquee imaging component highlights Sony’s industry-leading sensor technology, tight competition between Xiaomi, Vivo and OPPO flagship camera phones will drive all three brands to maximize the capabilities of the LYTIA LYT900.
While Sony often debuts impressive new sensors, getting them integrated into actual smartphones in a timely manner can be challenging, but seeing immediate adoption from multiple partners is a promising start for the LYTIA brand.
With its 1″ type size, high resolution, and bleeding-edge hybrid dual gain dynamic range, the LYTIA LYT900 brings uncompromised optics to slim smartphones. Photos and videos from the first LYTIA-equipped devices later should set a new bar for mobile imaging.
The sensor also kicks off Sony’s ambitious LYTIA product line aimed at giving smartphone photographers more creative options. If the LYT900 lives up to its hype, we can expect more advanced LYTIA sensors to follow and push mobile photography even further.
