The electronics giant’s claimed that its IMX060PQ sensor boasts the industry’s smallest cell size – 1.4µm – and that the 12.25-megapixel effective resolution means it’s achieved the industry’s highest phone-cam pixel count to date, 4040 x 3032.

Mobile phone cameras currently top out at around eight megapixels. No plans to put the higher-resolution Sony camera into a talker have been announced yet.

The 12.2-megapixel CMOS sensor will cost around ¥2500 ($26/£18/€20) when it rolls off Sony’s production lines in March 2009.
