Is the sensor self-developed or outsourced?

The only 20mpixel aps-c sensor on the market, up to now, is the one from samsung. If canon uses it, then it's very good, quite better than the older canon 18mpixel one in every aspect.

No, canon only use their own sensor in their DSLR.

This is not historically true. The EOS-1D had a Panasonic sensor. And Canon can change their sensor sourcing policy any time they choose.

Unlike other camera makes, canon own several CMOS manufacturing plant.

It has one plant with two fab lines.

That is who canon was able to make the 1st FF dSLR 4 years ahead of competition.

In fact they didn't. The first FF DSLR was the Contax ND. The first FF CMOS sensored DSLR was the Kodak DCS-14n.

Canon also never sell their CMOS sensor to other manufactures.

This is true, but we don't know whether that is because they have not tried or because they had no takers.
