One of the most successful parts of Sony is its mobile camera division market, with the company having their sensors in many flagship smartphones - but their new one? Yeah, it's going to be even better.

 

 

Sony has been teasing a new sensor that will be capable of capturing 1000FPS at 1080p, which allows you to slow the video down 64x. In the current smartphone camera sensors, there is no mechanical shutter, which is why we have that horizontal scrolling effect when panning quickly, or with fast-moving objects.

 

A new layer of DRAM has been added to Sony's new camera sensors, directly into the camera sensor - something that will let the sensor process and buffer frames at a much quicker rate, resulting in a higher frame rates. This will reduce the horizontal scrolling effect, resulting in smoother video.

We should expect Sony's new camera sensor to be inside of Apple's new iPhone X smartphone - well, at least I expect it to be, and upcoming flagship smartphones from Samsung next year, or maybe the Galaxy Note 8 later this year.
