CES 2022: OmniVision releases OVB0B 200MP 0.61µm pixel image sensor for smartphones!

A new superb high-resolution image sensor for smartphones?

Dubbed as the OVB0B, it is the world's smallest 200MP image sensor with a pixel just of just 0.61µm designed for smartphones.

According to the company, it uses a 16-cell binning technology that provides premium video and preview quality in 12.5MP mode, especially in low light. This is also the first 200MP camera to offer 100 percent quad phase-detection technology (QPD) for "excellent" fast autofocus performance.

The sensor can also do 4K2K video with 16x sensitivity. In low light, its 12.5MP output has an equivalent of 2.44
µm using near pixel 44 binning. It also has an on-chip remosaic that enables 50MP at 24 frames per second (fps) and 8K video at 30fps with 1.22µm equivalent performance. The company also highlights that it can output 12.5MP at 30fps with 3-exposure staggered HDR timing.

Consumers want high resolution captures and high quality preview and video. As the image sensor technology leader, we have applied our PureCel®Plus‑S stacked die technology to dramatically push mobile main cameras to a new level, said Arun Jayaseelan, staff marketing manager at OMNIVISION. With the new OVB0B, we now offer the industry's highest resolution in a small package for high end smart phones along with the best low-light performance in its class.

OmniVision said that the new sensor supports CPHY, DPHY, and dual DOVDD (1.8V and 1.2V).

The company claims that this new image sensor for smartphones can deliver an enhanced camera experience and best-in-class low light performance.

Its samples are now available for mobile makers to try.

Could this be the main competitor of Samsung's own 200MP sensor?
