Yes, this improvement can be considered in the same direction, the sensing part is off loaded to some other segment so that it will less affect by other signals on the same substrate.

It make sense to integrate the CMOS with some processing capacity to improve the image capture quality. Right now most of the processing happens after the image is captured but this can be improve.

High dynamic range vs number of pixels

Seems to me that we are going to enter a. Phase of more features not more pixels. I'm interested in better HDR not more pixels these days...

No they are not multiple slices of Image Sensor, but they have stacked the image sensing part over the circuit part, meaning they have differentiated the electronic circuit part and the image sensing part on the semiconductor subtract. This way they are being able to have better control over the image sensing.

Are they actually stacking image sensor slices in order to create increased sensitivity?

This investment is simply for increasing the producing capacity or it is being spent after some research in sensor design as well?

Is this from Apple for Apple?

That is good news. Is this from Apple for Apple? Apple must be conceptulizing a new product.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
