The only problem with small sensor is small optics. The smaller the hole, the less light goes through. So no matter how much you improve the sensor, you won't get more light reaching it. At some point they'll have to enlarge the sensor itself.
2k*4k video at 60 fps !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 720p 300 fps !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tatsuya, 27 Feb 2016Well.. still not interest with small sensor, i prefer real camera like Sony A7R2 or Sony A6000/A6300Well this is a website for phones so maybe a Sony forum would be better for you
Shawn , 26 Feb 2016Samsung camera ia much better than Sony and omnivision isn't bad at all!! LoL, dude, Samsung's Cameras use Sony's sensors. That's why he's saying "Poor man Sony".

Finally seeing some higher frame rates for slower slow motion. Haven't seen an increase in slow motion in a long time.
so this sensor can shoot up to 240 fps 1080p, and some Mediatek chipset can do 460 fps, but we're still dealing with 720p @ 120fps on all the available android devices, except Np6.
Hritik, 26 Feb 2016poor man's sonyPoor Man's Sony? Sony couldn't use the full potential of their sensors until the Z5 LOL

Hritik, 26 Feb 2016poor man's sonybit unfair, they do have really good sensors but sony has so much brand loyalty that the top companies kinda have to choose it
I guess it will be used in the OnePlus 3. The OnePlus 2 has OmniVision 13860.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2016Funny how I was looking at the 16880 only yesterday too.ov16880 is 1/3 sensor, 1micron pixel size that mean smaller sensor than 1/2.6 of ov13870. at 1.3micron pixel size. however still not as best as sony imx377 at 1/2.3 sensor of nexus 5p & 5x
Omnivision is have some really good camera quality!! my phone is also using it and the image is good
Oneplus 3 will be equipped with this camera lets see how it stacks up with the camera of recently launched s7......
