Hard-wired 9-to-1 'PureView' to debut in the Galaxy S11+?

Back in the day, the Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020 used 41MP sensors in a 'Bayer' configuration, with PureView software and (chip) hardware doing oversampling across these sensors to reduce digital noise. The output was 5MP and the 'super pixel' size was 4 microns (in the 808's case) - we now have leaks about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11+ that points to a similar arrangement on a 108MP 1/1.3" sensor that works out to about 2.4 micron pixels at 12MP. Which sounds jolly interesting for 2020!
