OmniVision OV50H image sensor for mobile devices goes official with quad-phase autofocusOmniVision OV50H is the brand's latest image sensor for mobile devices. The sensor has a 1/1.3‑inch optical format that supports multiple HDR modes and high frame rates and has a 1.2‑micron pixel size. It supports 12.5MP at 120 fps and HDR at 60 fps, 8K video with on-chip remosaic; 4K+EIS at 120 fps linear and 60 fps HDR. This is OmniVision's first sensor to feature horizontal/vertical (H/V) quad-phase detection (QPD) autofocus. The sensor is powered by a dual conversion gain (DCG) technology and supports DCG HDR with on-chip combination and staggered HDR support for flexibility of different HDR modes depending on scene; supports staggered HDR in crop zoom mode.

The OV50H is built on OmniVision's PureCel Plus-S stacked-die technology for best-in-class image sensor performance. It features OmniVision's first H/V QPD autofocus technology. QPD enables 2x2 phase detection autofocus (PDAF) across the sensor’s entire image array, and H/V mode ensures that both horizontal and vertical orientations are in the same frame with 100% coverage. This feature improves distance calculation, provides faster autofocus, and enhances low-light performance. Combined with on-chip remosaic for the QPD color filter array, the result is premium image quality for the comprehensive and ultrawide rear-facing cameras in flagship and high-end smartphones.

Sample of the OV50H will be available in April 2023.
