OmniVision’s new sensor, called OV64B, is 64 MP and is only 1/2 inch in size. The new 64 MP camera sensor is the first with its size, while reducing the pixels to just 0.7 microns, it sets the standards again in the industry.
The OV64B is groundbreaking on smartphone cameras, making pixels even smaller to fit 64 million pixels in a 1/2 inch image sensor. The 1/2 inch size of the sensor is slightly larger than the 1 / 2.55 inch sensors on phones like the iPhone 11 and Google Pixel 4, but promises more on the resolution side.
OmniVision’s new sensor uses a 4-cell color filter (Quad Bayer) to capture 16MP images with performance equivalent to 1.4 microns when you need more light or high resolution photos like 64 MP. It also supports 3 exposures, progressive HDR timing for video modes up to 16 megapixels.
The OV64B camera sensor allows capturing 8K / 30 FPS, 4K / 60 FPS video or 4K / 30 FPS video with electronic image stabilization. In addition, the sensor can capture 64 MP photos at full resolution up to 15 fps. OmniVision uses built-in phase detection AF sensors with 2×2 micro lenses (ML-PDAF) that increase autofocus accuracy, especially in low light conditions.
The Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 is likewise a four-filter 64 MP image sensor capable of capturing both 16 MP and 64 MP resuspended images. However, Samsung’s sensor is larger and uses 0.8 micrometer pixels on a 1/7 inch sensor. But OmniVision sets itself apart from its competitors by targeting thinner smartphones with the OV64B.
