One of the image sensor companies for mobile devices, Omnivision, has announced a new 200 MP image sensor with the name OVB0A. This sensor provides several upgrades over its predecessor and is compact in size.
Omnivision OVB0A is claimed to come with class-leading resolution, improved autofocus, and better low-light performance. This sensor has maximum light capture even though the size of each pixel is small. Omnivision states that the OVB0A comes with best-in-class low-light performance.
Omnivision is a major competitor to industry leader Samsung and hopes to enhance its capabilities with the announcement of the OVB0A 200 MP. Reporting from Gizmochina (19/8), the new premium sensor measures 1/1.395 inches, slightly smaller than its predecessor. It has an individual sensor size of 0.56 micrometers, which is the smallest mobile imaging technology ever.
The new sensor made by Omnivision features 100% quad phase detection and quantum efficiency which provides premium performance. Therefore, this device still matches its predecessor in terms of capturing the light spectrum despite its smaller size.
Omnivision says the new 200 MP image sensor will be available to its customers in the fourth quarter of this year. It should be noted that OVB0B has not been used on any mobile device on the market. Thus, it is expected that OVB0A can take longer to start being implemented on mobile devices.
