OmniVision, a leading image sensor maker, announced a 48 million pixel image sensor that will be used in next generation flagship smartphones.
The OM48C, an omnivision OV48C, has a pixel size of 1.2um and a sensor size of 1 / 1.3 “, which has been introduced as a product with more strength than the 0.8um product used so far.
In the case of the image sensor, a strong competitor has emerged in the ultra-pixel image sensor market of more than 48 million pixels, which was 0.8 um, since the image quality depends on the pixel size and the overall size of the image sensor rather than the pixel.
In particular, the combination of pixel binning is expected to operate at 2.4um, which is expected to have a large impact on the existing market, where 1.6um is the best. .
For reference, Sony’s IMX586, Samsung’s representative IMX586, Samsung’s GM1, and GM2 have 0.8um pixel size and 1/2 “sensor size.
