It’s a low rated rumor but according to new source of SAR website Sony A7S II successor will carry RGBW sensor. If we look at the test reports when we compare a RGB sensor with RGBW sensor, then we see increase in brightness in images by 32% in high-contrast situations and decrease color noise by 78% in low-light.
1. Huawei P8 uses the RGBW Sensor
Till now only Huawei P8 uses the RGBW Sensor developed by Sony. The P8 is world first smartphone to feature a Dual camera module on the rear side of the camera and each module of the camera have a 13MP RGBW sensor inside it.
As you can see the P8 sensor is listed at sensor product page here.
2. What is RGBW Sensor
The RGB sensor carries extra white pixel inside it and due to that we see increase in brightness in images by 32% decrease color noise by 78% in low-light compared to a traditional CMOS Sensor. The Sony High sensor RGBW actually inspired from Kodak as you can see the Kodak press release published at dpreview at 2007.
3. Sony working on a Fullframe RGBW Sensor
It’s look logical that Sony may use RGBW sensor for its forthcoming High A7 series sensitivity camera. The overall sensitivity of the camera is expected to increase upto 84%. Which will be a very big Jump from its predecessor.

Which camera should you buy, Sony A7S II of Sony A7S. Before we begin you must know that the sensor inside both the camera is same, although lot of optimization has been done to improve the AF performance, introduction of 5 axis image stabilization system and 4K internal video recording mode with fast AF + IS support. The another advantage of Sony A7S II is high frame rate 120/100fps in full 1080p which the A7s only had in 720p.’
A major group Sony A7S users mainly use Sony A7S for low-light event, but if you are looking for major performance upgrade in low-light area you may get disappointed to see the results below.
I am able to notice a bit of noise optimization in in Sony A7S II camera, but I am not able to notice any major performance upgrade in low-light sensitivity. If you are a low-light shooter you must wait for the next version Sony A7S III. New users must buy Sony A7S II since both camera have exactly same price tag.
