New Nikon patent shows a mirrorless camera CMOS global shutter with dual pixel autofocus

Nikon is working on the holy grail of mirrorless system camera sensor tech. In the newly published patent application (submitted in January 2018)  they present a new sensor:

In order to realize a global shutter in a CMOS image sensor, there is known an imaging apparatus in which a storage section is provided to a pixel.

Moreover the sensor has on sensor phase detection pixels similar to Canon’s dual pixel tech.If Nikon can really translate this into their new FF mirrorless it would certainly mark a quantum leap over current Sony’s.
