This partnership was officially announced through a post on the Weibo social network, putting an end to numerous speculations that have been circulating for some time.

Sony Lytia OnePlus Partnership

The Sony Lytia sensor is a brand introduced by Sony Semiconductor Solutions (SSS) to signify their image sensors, and it has been a driving force in the industry since 2003. With their strong track record and reputation as a leading supplier to various manufacturers, Sony's image sensors have consistently raised the bar for smartphone photography.

The sensor to be used in the OnePlus 12 is expected to be distinct from the one found in the OnePlus Open. It's highly probable that OnePlus will employ a new sensor featuring two stacked layers – one for transistors and one for photodiodes, born from a collaboration between Sony and OnePlus. This innovative approach promises to enhance low-light photography capabilities by capturing more light than conventional sensors. There's even a possibility of a 50MP variant of the LYT-T808.
