Vivo co-develops customised Sony Lytia image sensors for future Vivo phones

Vivo's announcement in its imaging advances and choices, with the next generation being a customised Sony Lytia sensor.

Vivo announced a host of imaging advances at its special conference earlier this week (30 July), introducing its efforts in generative AI, a new periscope lens made with ZEISS, and a new imaging chipset. But, that wasn’t all.

Vivo also revealed that it’s working with Sony to create a next-generation imaging sensor for its future Vivo X series handsets, through a slide in its keynote presentation that talked about its sensor advances.

Specifically, the Chinese phone brand is customising a Sony Lytia sensor with a two-layer transistor pixel structure. So, which of Sony’s new Lytia mobile sensors has that feature?

On the Sony Lytia announcement page, the Japanese company states that its 53-megapixel Sony LYT800 has this characteristic. More specifically, LYT800 is a 1/1.4-inch premium-grade sensor made to rival “high-quality 1-inch typer” sensors, and it’s also the first-ever sensor to have this two-layer structure for its pixels to give it excellent low-light performance.
