The thing is however, for the system to be beneficial in the way I suggest, each square sub-pixel must be capable of filtering only R or G or B light at a moment.
And it should act like a filter for existing light from lens, not a source of light, or a lot of obstruction to light.
If they can find a way to make it possible with good quality, then it can happen.

Although, the sensor itself must be smart enough to push an image in 4in1, 3in1, 2in1, and single pixel mode, through its own circuitry... then it will be applicable to any phone processor.

Anonymous, 23 Apr 2020The 100x from S20 Ultra is digital zoom from the main camera, not from the periscope. It is from the telephoto camera. Wrong info again.
Samsung has shown it's inability to make a proper software,
so let's bragging about useless sensor hardware.
Moreover, in Exynos models they try to sell Samsung's own shity sensor+processor,
In Snapdragon models they have a proper Sony chip, why is that?
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2020The 100x from S20 Ultra is digital zoom from the main camera, not from the periscope. It's a digital zoom from the 4x TELEPHOTO camera, obviously. Why the hell would it crop in from the main camera when there's a secondary camera that is far more capable for zooming purpose??
SLSAHXOHVOMVN, 23 Apr 2020There is visible improvements in low light videos for using nona Bayer over Quad Bayer.

Also Samsung sensors cant get rid of the gap between pixels like exmor imx 686/689 when they merge.
All this is just to boost digital zoom, even without any benefit. The 64MP of S20 at 3x results in 7MP (I read this on a comment on a famous photography website). Result is worse than using a smaller sensor behind a 80mm lenses.
Not counting that Samsung just wanted to throw 8K option too.
I dont like quadbayer sensors, pointless to have 48, 64 or 108 MP of have details of 12MP photo.
20MP 1/1.2" would be much better, by far.

But ultra's periscope has 4x optical magnification, so to achieve 100x from there the zoom needed is 25x and the image sensor resolution is 48MP, hence the 48/25^2.
Nick Tagataka, 23 Apr 2020Actually it's 48MP/25^2 = 0.0768MP, but yeah I agree with your point.2x zoom , you cut half vertical and half horizontal. So resolution drops to 1/4.
4000 x 3000 pixels becomes 2000 x 1500
3x zoom = 1/9
5x zoom = 1/25
10x zoom = 1/100

Now, back to the periscope on 1/1.5", yes it will be thicker because of the sideways sensor, actually i dont mind if the camera bump at 10mm for that camera tech.
