OmniVision's OV12890 is a high-performance 1.55-micron big-pixel PureCel®Plus-S image sensor that brings high-end imaging to flagship smartphones. Compared to OmniVision's previous-generation big-pixel sensor, the OV12890 delivers dramatically improved sensitivity and signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio with faster 12-bit readout architecture. The 1/2.3-inch OV12890 captures ultra-high resolution, high frame rate images, and video with support for advanced features such as phase detection autofocus (PDAF), high dynamic range (HDR), and slow motion video.

Built on OmniVision's latest generation PureCel®Plus-S pixel architecture, the OV12890 is capable of capturing full resolution 12-megapixel images and video at 45 frames per second (fps), ultra-high resolution 4K2K video at 60 fps, and 1080p full high definition (HD) video at 240 fps via high speed D-PHY and C-PHY interfaces.

The OV12890 fits into 10 x 10 mm modules with z-heights of less than 6 mm.
