Sony and OPPO Team Up on LYTIA CMOS Sensor, Power the OPPO Find N3 Foldable

Sony Semiconductor Solutions has announced a new collaboration with smartphone maker OPPO to develop imaging sensors utilizing Sony’s LYTIA dual-layer transistor pixel technology, Gizmoweek has posted the CMOS detailed Sony’s LYTIA brand expands with five new 50-megapixel sensors.

The sensors combine a photodiode layer with a pixel transistor layer to improve light capture and reduce noise in challenging lighting conditions. This can enable sharper, clearer photos in settings like low-light indoor shots or backlit environments.

LYTIA builds on Sony’s existing dual-layer tech announced last year and already featured in Sony’s own Xperia 1 V smartphone, (Xperia 1 V review). Now OPPO will leverage the innovative sensors in upcoming devices.

The first implementation will be the LYTIA LYT800 sensor in OPPO’s soon-to-launch Find N3 foldable phone, with 53MP resolution on a large 1/1.43″ sensor size, it promises excellent image quality rivaling Sony’s leading IMX888 mobile sensor.

This Sony partnership demonstrates OPPO’s commitment to delivering best-in-class photography experiences. Dual-layer sensors allow more light capture and processing on a compact smartphone sensor size.

Rival vivo has also been teased to adopt these new LYTIA sensors soon. The collab indicates Sony’s critical role supplying advanced imaging components to major Chinese OEMs.

As more manufacturers adopt cutting-edge image sensors, smartphone photography capabilities continue to rapidly improve. The OPPO partnership exemplifies innovators combining expertise to push mobile imaging forward.
