Sony's new "stacked" image sensors open door to smaller devices, more pixels

Sony sells around 80 percent of its image sensors to outside customers, but the business is still small compared to its core electronics concerns.

"This is a step in the right direction, but won't have a major impact on Sony's results," Wakabayashi said.
