As far as my information goes, Sony IMX318 is not a smartphone. Sony has recently announced a new camera sensor for smartphones labelled Sony IMX318. If your query pertains to this sensor - here are the details.
The newly announced camera sensor from Sony, IMX318 has been said to have two major features - a faster auto focus and a 3-axis video stabilisation. It has hybrid Auto focus which allows focussing speeds of 0.03 seconds. The 3-axis video stabilisation ensures smoother 4K videos.
The new sensor from Sony is indeed made for the current trend of better cameras in considerably smaller and thinner form factor.
The IMX318 sensor consists of 22.5-megapixel 1/2.6" sensor. It has the smallest pixel size at 1 micron. It can translate into better low light performance. Sony has stated that the smaller pixels will not affect the quality adversely.
The sensor is slated for a release in second quarter of 2016. Shipping is likely to commence from May, 2016. It is likely to be incorporated into Sony Xperia Z6 smartphone. We may also see the sensor in iPhone 7 and Galaxy S7.
