The announcement of Sony IMX586, the sensor which has 48 million pixels

The novelty can take photos with a resolution of up to 8000x6000 pixels and shoot video at a speed of 30 frames / s. It is known that when recording video at 720p - 480 frames / s, 1080p - 240 frames / s, and 4K - 90 frames / second. The first samples of Sony IMX586 will be on sale in September this year. There is an assumption that the first flagship, which will receive a new sensor, will be Sony Xperia XZ3, the announcement of which is expected on August 30. But some experts believe that this sensor should not wait until early 2019.
