Flagship Low-Light and Autofocus Performance for Rear-facing Smartphone Cameras

OV50H is a high-resolution 50 megapixel (MP) image sensor with a dual conversion gain (DCG™) technology powered 1.2‑micron (µm) pixel in a 1/1.3‑inch optical format, designed for high-end smartphone rear-facing cameras. The OV50H offers flagship-level low-light and autofocus performance, supports 12.5MP at 120 frames per second (fps) and high dynamic range (HDR) at 60 fps and is OMNIVISION’s first sensor to feature horizontal/vertical (H/V) quad phase detection (QPD).

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 2×2 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. In combination with on-chip remosaic for the QPD color filter array, the result is premium image quality for the wide and ultrawide rear-facing cameras in flagship and high-end smartphones.
