The 26MP sensor - assumed to be the Sony IMX571 - is obviously unrelated to the old 24MP.

They are the first cousins, from the father's side.

Sensors don't breed, I'm afraid - so they don't have mothers and fathers, less alone cousins. They're not alive, but manufactured products.

They don't need to be potty trained either, which is fortunate as this would otherwise make a mess in our camera bags.

The list of differences is extensive,

Does it mean we can count them on the fingers of one hand, or three hands?

Are numbers too hard to figure out?

the fact that it's a back-illuminated sensor,

What's on the back hardly influences what's on the front. My original note was not about that.

So you don't know what a back-illuminated sensor is, either.

high readout speed,

There are 24MP sensors with high readout speeds too. To which one you are referring to?

Mainly about the K-3 sensor, which I've made clear in my post.

16-bit readout (16-bit AD/C included).

That has nothing to do with the pixel count. My 5MP camera has 16-bit colour too.

Oh? And what camera is that?

Maybe... you don't know what 16-bit readout is?

And its APS-C sized.

Yeah, the previous must have been a tad shorter. Or larger? Confusing!

To you.
