I have been noticing Sony that the company always loves to do something great for photographers, whether we are talking about Sony’s phones or cameras. I can easily remember that old Cybershot phone series that created a storm in the market. Later, we got a look at Xperia series with multiple megapixels and impressive sensors. We hope the company will do something similar for the upcoming flagship. Even it is possible the upcoming Xperia Z4 camera can bring you a DSLR-like autofocus. Of course, we consider multi-sensor cameras for phones are the next big surprise.
In recent times Sony announced the Exmor RS IMX230 sensor that could be available for the Xperia Z4 and other phones. This sensor is packed with effective 21-megapixels into a 1/2.4-inch sized form factor. It is built-in 192-point phase-detection autofocus to take some quick photos. This chip is integrated with HDR for high-res stills and 4K videos. It can be another turn to get loads of money instead of experience loses.

The developer offers you a specific recovery to flash this CM12 build. But before you get too much excited, keep in mind this is an alpha build. So there are may be some issues with it you can experience.
