RS IMX230

Sony today announced the Exmor RS IMX230, a CMOS camera sensor for high-end smartphones.

The sensor captures 21 megapixels at f/2.4 and uses a stacked design that Sony claims keeps the footprint small and adds functionality. The IMX230 has an onboard image plane phase detection AF signal processing function that helps the sensor track and focus on moving objects much faster. It can track subjects in 192 different auto-focus points simultaneously.

The sensor is also capable of capturing HDR video at resolutions up to 4K. Sony’s current sensors can capture HDR video, but only at 1080p HD.
