Modestly higher pixel density
326 ppi
vs
306 ppi
6.54% higher pixel density
anonymous
567
Every pixel has three subpixels
Yes
vs

Significantly bigger pixel size
3 µm²
vs
2 µm²
1 µm² bigger pixel size. Pixel size is the surface area of each pixel on the camera sensor. Larger pixels can absorb more light. This can result in better image quality and improved low-light performance.
