Color CMOS 13-Megapixel (4224x3136) PureCel®Plus Image Sensor

OmniVision's high performance OV13855 is a 13-megapixel PureCel®Plus image sensor designed to bring high-quality imaging to rear-facing camera applications in mainstream smartphones. It is also well-suited for front-facing and stereo camera applications in high-end mobile devices. In addition to best-in-class pixel performance, this 3rd generation 13-megapixel sensor also offers advanced features such as the phase detection autofocus (PDAF).

Built on OmniVision's PureCel®Plus pixel technology, the OV13855 delivers significant improvements in low-light performance, color crosstalk reduction, and angular response, when compared with previous-generation 13-megapixel sensors. The OV13855 captures full-resolution 13-megapixel still images at 30 frames per second (fps) and records ultra-high resolution 4K2K video at 45 fps, 1080p full high definition (HD) at 60 fps, or 720p HD at 90 fps.

The OV13855 fits in 8.5 x 8.5 mm autofocus modules with z-heights of less than 5 mm for rear cameras, and 7.5 x 7.5 mm fixed focus modules with z-heights of less than 4.5 mm for high-end front-facing cameras. The sensor is available in non-PDAF (OV13858) and monochrome (OV13355) versions for front-facing and dual camera applications.
