OmniVision Announces 4K Video Sensor for Phones


OmniVision Announces 4K Video Sensor for Phones
I did not see this coming. Rather, I didn't see this coming so quickly. OmniVision has announced a 16-Megapixel sensors that they claim are capable of capturing 4608 x 3456 at 30 fps or 4k2k (3840 x 2160) at 60 fps (!) for use in still and video cameras as well as high end mobile phones. So far, we haven't heard any news of the chip being incorporated into any specific device, but the fact that it's possible is staggering. This means that in the very near future, the average person can shoot video from their phone that will have enough resolution to be projected onto the big screen without up-scaling!
