Omnivision, Samsung, and Sony are some famous brands when it comes to image sensor manufacturers. But this time the name of Omnivision has popped up in some different way. The company has just launched the Omnivision OV64A. It is an expected update in 64 MP modules. This might be that the phone makers are focusing on utilizing bigger sensors. Also, the shipments of the image sensor of 50 MP or more will hit 322 million units by 2021. The company plans to get its bit of that pie with the OV64A. This is CMOS sensor with 1-micron pixels. And this 1-micron sensor is the world’s first camera with such a sensor. Whereas this is coming not too long after the OV64B. And this is the world’s first sensor with 0.7 microns was unveiled.
