The Xiaomi 12S Ultra video teardown shows us from the inside how the smartphone with the largest photo sensor in the world is made (for now)

It is worth noting that the optical format does not reflect the physical dimensions of the image sensor. In other words, the IMX989 sensor is actually less than the declared diagonal inch. However, it has an impressive size compared to the 50 megapixel (1 / 1,28 ″) Samsung GNV. The authors of the video measured the maximum thickness of the smartphone's rear camera module - it was an impressive one 11.06 mm.
