OV50E New 50MP Image Sensor Brings Industry-leading Low Light Still Image and Ultra High Dynamic Range Video to Rear Facing Smartphone Cameras
1/1.55" Color CMOS 50 Megapixel (8192 x 6144) Image Sensor with PureCel®Plus Technology
  • SKU
    OV50E40-GA5A-4A-Z

The OV50E image sensor brings the industry’s best low light image and high dynamic range (HDR) video capturing capabilities to rear-facing main cameras in high-end and mainstream smartphones. The OV50E features staggered HDR and DCG™ technology for improved HDR and crop zoom support, 100% quad phase detection (QPD) for enhanced autofocus, and better low light performance over previous-generation image sensors. The new OV50E combines 50MP resolution and 1.0 µm pixel size in a 1/1.5‑inch optical format.

The OV50E can achieve up to 64x analog gain for full resolution, or 256x analog gain for 4 cell binning resolution. Built on OMNIVISION’s PureCel®Plus‑S stacked die technology, the OV50E can also use near-pixel binning to output a 12.5MP image or 4K2K video with four times the sensitivity, yielding 2.0 µm‑equivalent performance for preview and video. The maximum dynamic range reaches more than 100 dB.

The OV50E’s second-generation QPD enables 2×2 phase detection autofocus across the sensor’s entire image array for 100% coverage, resulting in improved distance calculation, faster autofocus and better low-light performance. Premium image quality is further enabled by the combination of on-chip remosaic for the QPD color filter array to full Bayer resolution.

Output formats include 50MP, or 8K video, with QPD autofocus at 30 frames per second (fps); 12.5MP with QPD autofocus at 60 fps; 4K2K video with QPD autofocus at 60 fps; and 1080p at 240 fps. The OV50E supports the CPHY/DPHY MIPI interface and dual DOVDD 1.8/1.2V.
