Do the K-3 & K-3ii have the exact same sensor?

Hey everybody, just wondering what, if any, the differences in the two sensors are.

It would be interesting if someone could do a tear down of an early K-3 and the K-3ii to see if anything has changed. It would be surprising if all of the chips and boards are unchanged. Usually there is some evolution of hardware within a products life cycle.
