Huawei P30 Pro may be the last, as Google suspends business with Chinese smartphone manufacturer

Comment on the forum

Huawei will no longer have access to Android and Google Play Services for future devices (nor updates for current ones) after Google suspended business under pressure from the Trump administration. This has implications for Leica as well, who have a partnership with Huawei on the flagship camera phones such as the P30 Pro and Mate20 Pro.

Will the Sony A7S III have a 48 / 12 megapixel Quad Bayer Exmor RS sensor?

Comment on the forum

I am convinced Sony will go in the direction of Quad Bayer stacked CMOS sensors for the A7S series and it’s a major reason we’ve waited so long for it. I also think the FS5’s electronically variable ND filter will be in the camera too.

Quad Bayer answers the conundrum of balancing low light performance and megapixel count. It is the best of both worlds and allows a 48 megapixel 8000 x 6000 image and 8K video – at the same time as 4000 x 3000 and 4K video with better low light performance.

The proof of concept is sitting in my hands right now. Step forward the mighty Xiaomi Mi 9 smartphone with 48 megapixel Sony Quad Bayer sensor and 960fps slow-mo.
