OmniVision unveils new 12.6MP sensor for cameraphones

14 April, 2011

OmniVision unveiled today a 12.6MP camera sensor, capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second. Naturally, the sensor is destined to find place in future smartphones.

The new OV12825 sensor is not only capable of 1080p video recording, but can also capture stills with resolution of 4224x3000 pixels at 15fps. Other highlight features include pixel-shift image stabilization and fast continuous still image shooting.

OmniVision has made the camera sensor of the iPhone 4 but now there are some rumors suggesting that Apple might be switching to Sony's 8 megapixel back-lit sensor for the iPhone 5 (like the one on the XPERIA Arc).

Unless this sensor is as big as the one found in the N8, then it will still suck at photo's, with all its 12.6 MP and 60fps.
