The stacked CMOS image sensor "IMX586" features a pixel count of 48 effective megapixels and an ultra-compact pixel size of 0.8-micron pixels, the company wrote in a blog post.
Currently, the highest resolution camera sensor, 40MP, is available in Huawei P20 Pro and Nokia Lumia 1020. Apple has long used Sony to supply its camera sensors.
It uses the "Quad Bayer" colour filter array to incorporate high sensitivity and high resolution in the images.
