OmniVision unveils a high-end 64MP image sensor with 1.0µm pixel size null

When it comes to smartphone photography, high-resolution, large sensors are the way to go forward. OmniVision’s new breakthrough manages to do just that and then some.

Over the last few years, component manufacturers have shifted focus to creating larger image sensors with higher resolution and bigger individual pixels. However, achieving growth on all three fronts comes with physical constraints such as size and weight. Thus, features such as pixel-binning were introduced to offer flexibility.
