  • OmniVision introduced a unique 64 megapixel sensor for ultra-thin smartphones

    At the beginning of the year, OmniVision introduced a 48-megapixel sensor with the largest pixel size among competitors. Now the American company has announced the release of a unique 64-megapixel sensor that has no analogs on the market.

    OmniVision introduced a unique 64 megapixel sensor for ultra-thin smartphones

    OmniVision OV64B is a 1/2-inch sensor with a pixel size of 0.7 microns. For comparison, Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 and Sony IMX686 with the same resolution have a size of 1/1.7 inches with pixels of 0.8 microns. According to OmniVision, the new sensor is focused on use in ultra-thin smartphones of the highest class.

    The new sensor is built using proprietary PureCel Plus surround technology with a four-color filter. The device allows you to shoot both with a resolution of 64 megapixels, and in 16-megapixel mode. In the second case, pixels are combined, increasing photosensitivity by four times, which should increase the quality of images with a lack of light.

    In terms of video, the sensor supports shooting in 4K with electronic image stabilization and 8K at a frequency of 30 frames per second. HDR and phase detection autofocus are supported.

    The first samples of the new sensor will be sent to partners in May, but there is no information on the timing of its appearance on smartphones.
