OmniVision's OV16885 is a high-resolution image sensor built on OmniVision's second-generation, 1.0-micron PureCel®Plus-S pixel architecture that is well-suited for world-facing mobile cameras. The OV16885 enhances mainstream 16-megapixel resolution images and video with advanced features such as zig-zag high dynamic range (zHDR) and support for phase detection autofocus (PDAF), enabling crisp image and video details with excellent scene reproduction.

zHDR uses a long and a short exposure in a single frame to extend dynamic range capabilities of the sensors. Long and short exposure lines are diagonally interlaced across the entire pixel array in a zig-zag pattern. This enables live preview and video recording in HDR mode and single-shot full-resolution HDR images in capture mode without any shutter lag.

Leveraging OmniVision's PureCel Plus-S stacked die technology, the OV16885 captures full-resolution 16-megapixel images and video with zHDR functionality at 30 frames per second (fps), 4K2K video at 60 fps, and 1080p at 120 fps. The OV16885 sensor fits into industry-standard module form factors for slim mobile devices.
