A new leak has apparently shed light on the camera that will be included in Sony's upcoming flagship handset, the Xperia Z4.
According to a leak obtained by Chinese website CNBeta, the Xperia Z4 will apparently sport a camera with an IMX189AEG CMOS image sensor.
If the leak is to be believed, this will be the first high-speed and high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor with active colour sampling in the world.
The specs just got better
The new sensor will apparently be able to record 2K and 4K video capture. This might not seem too newsworthy as the Xperia Z3 already supports video at these resolutions, though with some performance issues.
What is interesting is that the leaks claim that the new sensor will be able to record 2K video (2048 x 1080) at 16,000 frames per second, with 4K video (6144 x 2160) recording at 240 frames per second, much faster (and therefore smoother) than the Z3.
With this latest leak we are finding out more about what we can expect from the Xperia Z4, with previous leaks hinting that the handset will come with a 5.5-inch QHD 1440 x 2560 display, a 64-bit 2.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 430 GPU.
If you think that speculating about the Xperia Z4's specifications is a bit early considering the Z3 has just launched, then you might not have been paying attention to Sony's release schedule.
The Z3 launched just six months after the Xperia Z2, so there's a good chance Sony is well on its way to unveiling the Xperia Z4.
