OmniVision's OV16A is an affordable 16-megapixel image sensor that enables smartphone cameras to capture higher quality photos. This versatile image sensor, built on OmniVision's PureCel®Plus 1.0 micron advanced pixel architecture, allows better autofocus for mainstream smartphones. With the OV16A, manufacturers can add a third camera for high-quality, ultra-wide-angle photos in high-end smartphones. Additionally, the OV16A extends battery life with the industry's lowest power consumption—10% lower than the nearest competitor's 16MP 1.0 micron sensor. Space limiting thin-bezel smartphone designs require compact front-facing cameras. The OV16A allows designers to incorporate just such a camera in the bezel, and with 2.0-micron-equivalent pixel performance.

The OV16A's 4-cell color filter allows users to consistently capture high-quality photos without motion blur, even in low-light conditions indoors. Its compact size enables the industry's smallest fixed-focus camera modules, with dimensions down to 6.5 mm x 6 mm. Additionally, its top and bottom pad configuration allows thin-bezel designs for full-display selfie screens. The OV16A's 2x1 microlens phase detection autofocus (ML-PDAF) boosts autofocus accuracy, especially in low light.
