The Samsung smart phone sensor has been officially announced. The specification that interested me is that the pixels are 0.8um in size. That is 800nm!
I wonder what that means for IR detection.

Probably blurry IR photos?

There is a nice explanation here of the effects of pixel size.

Seems to be a lot of assumptions taken at your link. Also their online calculators don't scale correctly.
I remember reading on Clark vision a limit of 2um for decent pixel size. The oversampling of these will be quite high.

The link is an explanation of the basic physics. There are not many assumptions.
