OmniVision OV48C is a new 48MP image sensor for mobile devicesAt CES 2020, OmniVision presented the 48MP OmniVision OV48C image sensor for mobile devices. This is the industry's first image sensor for high resolution mobile cameras with on-chip dual conversion gain HDR, which eliminates motion artefacts and produces an excellent signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Based on OmniVision's PureCel Plus stacked die technology, this sensor has a 1/1.3" optical format and 1.2-micron pixels. It also integrates an on-chip, 4-cell color filter array and hardware remosaic, which provides high quality, 48MP Bayer output, or 8K video, in real-time. The OV48C also uses 4C Half Shield phase-detection for fast autofocus support. In low light conditions, it yields a 2.4 micron-equivalent performance outputting 12MP images. Output formats include 48MP at 15 frames per second (fps), 12MP with 4-cell binning at 60 fps, and 4K2K video at 60 fps with the extra pixels needed for electronic image stabilization. This sensor also offers 1080p video with slow-motion support at 240 fps, as well as 720p at 360 fps.
