Sony will reportedly supply Apple with an image sensor for the iPhone 15 that is said to reduce overexposure and underexposure.

A Nikkei report on Monday said Sony will bring its photography smarts to the iPhone. That would put them in direct competition with Samsung, which is already supplying image sensors to Apple.

Sony's advanced sensor is said to nearly double the level of saturation signal per pixel compared to current sensors. It is said to capture more light, reducing over- or under-exposure in certain situations.

This has the added benefit of being able to accurately capture faces when the background is brightly lit, such as on a clear day. Sony achieved this with a new semiconductor architecture that puts photodiodes and transistors on separate substrate layers, resulting in a higher-density layer.

Sony is experienced in making image sensors, with a 44% global share in CMOS sensors in 2021, surpassing Samsung, which is second with 18.5%. But the company wants to capture 60 percent of the market by 2025, a goal it first announced in 2019.

Apple could adopt the Sony sensor across the entire iPhone 15 lineup, or limit it to the Pro models. These models could end up with exclusive features like Thunderbolt connectivity and vibration motor-based solid-state buttons for power and volume.

Currently, one iPhone 15 rumor is the introduction of a periscope camera. It will bring greater optical zoom values to the smartphone lineup by using a folded camera system that leaves more space between the lens and the sensor, and perhaps reduce the height of the camera bump on the back of the phone.
