Color CMOS 13.2-megapixel (4224x3136) PureCel® Image Sensor

OmniVision's 13-megapixel OV13853 is a PureCel® image sensor that brings DSLR-quality images and features to mainstream mobile devices. Utilizing OmniVision's advanced 1.12-micron pixel technology, the OV13853 can achieve best-in-class high and low-light performance, while delivering support for advanced features such as phase detection autofocus (PDAF).

The 1/3.06-inch OV13853 supports an active array of 4224 x 3136 pixels (13.2-megapixels) operating at 30 frames per second (fps) with zero shutter lag, enabling seamless transition between recording video and still images. The sensor supports 4K2K ultra-high definition video at 30 fps with full-horizontal field of view (FOV) and electronic image stabilization (EIS). The OV13853 can also record high frame rate 1080p HD video at 60 fps with EIS to enable high quality video recording.

The OV13853 fits into a compact 8.5 mm x 8.5 mm module with a z-height of less than 5 mm.
