New reports indicate that the Nikon D850 sensor (IMX309AQJ) is made by Sony

ChipMod took a Nikon D850 camera apart and came to the conclusion that the sensor inside is made by Sony ( Google translation ): In an email, ChipMod informed  me that they analyzed the sensor and the bonding pattern together with other characteristics are typical for the way Sony manufactures sensors. They also shared with me that Nikon has started to use a new sensor IC package – AQJ (metal frame with mounting holes on the sensor)

Time seems to stand still at Nikon. When the Nikkor 180-400mm f/4E TC 1.4 FL ED VR lens was announced, Nikon promised ( in the press release ) to release a firmware update for the D5, D850 and D500 that will make the outer row of AF points activated as cross-type sensors to significantly enhance the AF coverage throughout the frame.
