Sony may be looking to leave its rivals far behind in the megapixel race with its next flagship smartphone. A new image has s16-megapixelne which suggests that Sony’s upcoming XZ4 handset is going to have a triple camera system at the back with a primary 52 megapixel sensor. The setup may also include a 16 megapixel telephoto and a 0.3 megapixel time of flight sensor.
The image that was posted online by Sumanhoinfo not only reveals that this handset is going to have a triple camera system at the back, it also provides numbers for the sensors that will make up this system.
It also shows that the triple camera system will be positioned vertically at the back with the main 52 megapixel f/1.6 aperture sensor sitting in the middle. It will be backed up by a 16 megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.6 aperture at the top and a 0.3 megapixel time of flight sensor with f/1.4 aperture at the bottom.
The image doesn’t look official as it’s more of a CAD-based rendering of the device so perhaps don’t take it all at face value just yet. Nevertheless, earlier reports have also suggested that Sony will push the envelope in the camera department on this device.
We’ll likely find out at the Mobile World Congress 2019 later this month where the company may make an announcement.
