For the new IMX686 camera, the successor to the highly popular IMX586, which was among the first 48MP sensors, Sony released a teaser video. The teaser does not reveal the new sensor’s resolution, but predict 60-64MP based on phone reports that are expected to use it.

To watch the video on Weibo, you must follow the Source link. One aspect was confirmed by the accompanying text in Sony’s message–the sensor will be launched in 2020.

The video also shows photos captured with the sensor, but the full resolution shots were not published by the company. If you’re wondering how Sony captured photos with a sensor that’s not in phones yet, it’s using a prototype board connected to a computer (the phone seen in the videos is just a dummy).
