Hi
Smart phones have a sensor to display/rotate the image in portrait or in panoramic mode screen.
Where is that sensor available, or how is it called ? I could canibalize it from defunct phones if knew its number or looks.

Thanks. Seems found one by searching with the word 'orientation'

Good luck trying to find stock on many popular sensors. I've got a project I'm working on using the BMX160.

Glad I bought stock devices before the chip shortage.
