Hello guys.
I have a dead lumia 1020 sensor due some water damage. it so happens that i'm involved with electronics therefore i have some helpfull tools at disposal. if anyone is interested i'll try to open the sensor assembly and expose the guts inside. could be fun...

PS tried the same question on lumia's forum page but i figured out that it could be interesting not only for lumia owners but in general as a small inside into how phone sensors are made and what's up with those small 5-6 lenses inside these sensors.

no subscription is required, if people are interested, i'll be making some time to do it. i must first get some tools to get this done, since it's a tiny little thing and must be carefully taken apart in order to see the inside components the way they are mounted.
If anyone have any questions or wish for a specific thing to be tested/shown, please ask.
I also want to manually try to power up the OIS and various other motors inside to try to see how they work together.
Meanwhile, here's a photo with the sensor itself next to the phone and a AA battery for size reference. Quite a beasty in term of phone sensor sizes. It's a good thing since it's internals are bigger and better observable then a smaller sensor. However, the basic principles behind it are the same for all high end phone cameras.

here's the same sensor next to a "regular" 8 mpx sensor. note that a phone like the iphone 5/5s has an even smaller sensor then this, even if it still produces 8mpx photos.

yes, it's kind of big
...and noup, all the sensors you cited in your post ar not included in that casing for what i know now. inside of it i expect to find the imaging sensor (camera..) OIS motors, lens assembly and bearings, some dc motors and a few mechanical parts.
in general, on a typical android phone, accelerometer/compass/barometer/temperature/gyroscope sensors are located directly on the main board. Proximity/ambient light sensors, on the other hand/ are always located near the screen itself.

i could try in about 2 days. The back of the sensor is embeded in a thin cement layer. I would first need to get some tools to extract the outer casing without damaging the internals.
