Sony APS-C Global Shutter 31 MP Sensor Leaked. Not for Fujifilm X-T3, which Will Have 26 Megapixel – UPDATED

SAR ADMIN updated the article with the following 2 notes:
UPDATE: A chinese source just sent me these specs sheets of a rumored new Sony CMOS sensor found on Weibo. I am not sure if they are real but it certainly looks like that.
UPDATED: I edited this post and removed the note about the possibility that this might be used by the future A6700. What we learned now is that this is an APS-C sensor with an aspect ratio of 4:3.

FR ADMIN NOTE: As pointed out by readers, it’s been developed for FA and ITS applications. This is (expensive) BtoB stuff. Not BtoC photographic equipment.

New Sensor

SonyAlphaRumors just received specs about what seems to be the future APS-C sensor made by Sony.

This is of interest for Fujifilm lovers, since Fujifilm buys its sensor from Sony.

However, as we reported here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-T3 will have 26 Megapixel and still be X-Trans. So, if the rumor below is correct, I wouldn’t expect it to be featured on Fujifilm cameras before 2020/2021, maybe something for the Fujifilm X-H2 or Fujifilm X-T4.

Here is what SAR writes:

“A chinese source just sent me these specs sheets of a rumored new Sony CMOS sensor. I don’t know if this is a real deal or some fake specs. So please take it with a grain of salt. But if it’s true this is going to be an AMAZING sensor that might find it’s way into the new A6700!

Key info:

– APS-C size 4:3 aspect ratio
– 31.5 megapixel
– FSI (Front Side illuminated)
– global shutter

This would be the first Front Side illuminated Global Shutter APS-C sensor. Surely enough to make the A6700 super exciting! Here are the spec sheets:
