Sony's "State-of-The-Art" Image Sensor Will be Used in The iPhone 15 to Improve Low-Light Performance

According to a report from Nikkei, Sony's most recent "state of the art" image sensors will be used in Apple's upcoming iPhone 15 models.

Sony's image sensor doubles the saturation signal in each pixel compared to standard sensors, enabling it to capture more light and reduce underexposure and overexposure.

As an example, Nikkei cites that it can capture a person's face more effectively, even in backlighting.

The semiconductor architecture used by Sony segregates photodiodes and transistors into different layers, enabling more photodiodes. It is unknown if all iPhone 15 models will use the new sensor technology or if Apple will reserve it for the more expensive "Pro" models.
