X-Trans IV - it’s (not) a Sony?

So the rumours about the next fuji sensor for the XT3 later this year have been suggesting only a small bump in resolution to something still less than 30mp.

Some have questioned how this can possibly be since Sony don’t have any APS-C sensors in this ballpark. In fact the last such sensor matching this sort of description was the 28mp chip made by Samsung for its ill fated NX line, which is dead now of course. So that’s a mystery.  Rumours must be wrong I guess.  Fuji only uses Sony sensors after all.

In completely unrelated news, Samsung are ramping up sensor production btw - https://petapixel.com/2018/03/16/samsung-ramping-up-image-sensor-output-to-overtake-sony-for-1/
