OmniVision's OV16885-4C is an ultra-compact image sensor built on OmniVision's second-generation, 1.0-micron PureCel®Plus-S pixel technology that is designed to bring 16-megapixel resolution to high-end front-facing mobile applications. The OV16885-4C's on-chip pixel binning feature boosts signal levels up to four times, enabling clear images even in challenging lighting environments. The OV16885-4C pairs with OmniVision's smart resolution recovery software solutions to achieve the ideal balance between resolution and sensitivity, making it a compelling solution for "super selfie" cameras in high-end mobile applications.

The OV16885-4C offers a full 16-megapixel 4-cell RAW output mode and a 4-megapixel Bayer output mode that uses in-pixel binning to achieve a 2.0-micron pixel's performance and sensitivity. The OV16885-4C captures full-resolution 16-megapixel images and video at 30 frames per second (fps) and offers both MIPI D-PHY and C-PHY interfaces.

The OV16885-4C sensor fits into the industry-standard module form factors for slim mobile devices.
