Why did Apple hamstring camera repairs on standard iPhone 12 but leave Pro Max module swappable? asks engineering group

Re: Hang on

Yeah, but Sony have largely done it to themselves. However, they have publically declared their intention to do better - in this case by allowing their phone division to work with their professional photography section, which previously didn't happen.

It has seemed odd to the layman that for years Sony Xperia phone cameras haven't been the highest rated, despite Sony making and supplying the actual camera sensors found in the highest-rated phone cameras.

It's hoped that image processing expertise from their pro camera division might help their phones output images that compete with the likes of Apple and Google.
