The issue is so serious that Sony have taken to their official Weibo account in China to explain the situation. Apparently Sony say that only %50 of current orders of the IMX214 will be able to be filled!
Well, that’s going to wreak havoc on a hell of a lot of Chinese phone makers.
It’s going to be interesting to see which company will be able to press Sony into giving them a smooth supply ahead of everyone else. I’d place my bets on Lei Jun and Xiaomi getting the lion’s share until production can meet demand.
