Omnivision 200MP Camera for smartphones challenges Samsung

Even Omnivision has its CMOS sensor 200MP . The announcement was made during CES 2022 in Las Vegas and is an extremely important result for the Chinese company which thus enters into direct competition with the ISOCELL HP1 – also with 200MP – that Samsung unveiled last September. OVB0B is called the smallest 200MP image sensor in the world with pixels as small as 0.61µm. For comparison, the 200MP ISOCELL HP1 has a pixel size of 0.64µm.

With 16-cell binning for 4K2K video, Omnivision says, you can get excellent quality 12.5MP video, even in low light. This is also made possible by the rapid autofocus based on QPD quad phase-detection technology, an ideal solution for high-end smartphones to which the sensor is dedicated.
