...A new sensor can be made with graphene. The Foveon sensor is out of infancy and becoming more viable. Much of what a camera is and does comes from the computers that interpret the light, and these are constantly evolving, and even if no sensor improvements were made then cameras would still become far more superior over time simply because of the computer components that will exist in a decade. The smart-phone technology craze is pushing the limit of electronics miniaturization and this will trickle-effect into everything we buy including cameras....

There are only so many photons to be counted.  We are already counting >50% of them on our Nikon cameras, so Graphene and the like can add a stop at best?

So the low-light advantage will have to come from other techniques like oversampling etc. - correct?
