Oppo is preparing a new mid-range smartphone that will debut the Sony IMX890 image sensor. This was announced by an insider known under the nickname Digital Chat Station.
Reportedly, the phone will also receive an additional chip – a proprietary 6-nanometer MariSilicon X NPU of its own design, designed to improve the quality of photos and videos. The model will be mid-level and, accordingly, not very expensive (approximate price – 300-400 dollars).
Nothing is known about the Sony IMX890 yet. According to the same Digital Chat Station, the sensor should replace the popular IMX 586 (48 MP) and IMX766 (50 MP) sensors. Since Sony, unlike Samsung, is not chasing a large number of megapixels, you can think that the resolution of the IMX890 will remain at 50 megapixels, but the sensor itself will become larger. The insider says that in future flagships, the IMX890 will be used in additional modules of the main camera (with an ultra-wide angle lens), and in mid-range models this sensor will be the main one.
Previously, Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K50 and Xiaomi 12.
