The operation of the LHC beyond 2026, which aims to reach luminosities around 5-7.5 x 1034 cm-2s-1 , poses new challenges for the CMS detector. Therefore, the Phase-2 upgrade of CMS will completely replace the tracking system including more advanced silicon sensors/electronics which can sustain higher radiation levels and ensure efficient tracking performance. Studying and testing the properties and performance of the new Outer Tracker silicon strip sensors is a crucial process which precedes the module assembly. The 200 m2 sensor series production is in progress, thus some first results of the sensors quality, their design and the expected performance as defined in the prototyping phase, will be summarized.
