XIAOMI NOTE 11 maybe the first smartphone with 200MP sensor

Although the megapixel race may have slowed, it is still not over. The industry hit the 200-megapixel mark last year thanks to Samsung’s light hand. They began to discuss the fact that Xiaomi would have the first smartphone to use a new sensor, and not in its flagship device but in a mid-range device.

OmniVision’s 200-megapixel OVB0B sensor was presented last week by OmniVision. It is not surprising that predicted that the first Xiaomi smartphone could have this sensor. According to the source, the original Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro / Xiaomi Mi Note 10 had a 108-megapixel sensor. Why isn’t the company doing the same trick again to please the record-hungry public.

Already, it is possible that someone may already have a 200-megapixel camera. It can be received by one of the models in the Xiaomi Note 11 series. This confirms the prediction that the company won’t try to place a 200-megapixel sensor inside the flagship. Instead, it will test the solution in devices one step lower.

The OmniVision OVB0B sensor is an optical format 1/1.28″, and each pixel has a size of 0.61 um. It allows you to capture clear, detailed images in dark environments with a resolution of up to 12 megapixels thanks to pixel binning technology. This is the first image sensor that uses the entire area to achieve smooth and rapid autofocus performance.


This new sensor features a 1/1.28 inch thick bottom and a resolution of 16384×12288 pixels. The unique 16-unit merging technology is also included. This sensor also provides high-quality preview quality and video in 12.5-megapixel mode, particularly in low light conditions. Omnivision 200MP sensor can also use four-phase detection technology. This feature is used by the camera to enable phase detection autofocus.

Omnivision 200MP sensor OVB0B has the first industry-first 16-cell binning function to 4K2K video. It has a 16-fold higher sensitivity than similar products. You can achieve 12.5-megapixel performance in low-light conditions by using 4×4 pixel-binning and 2.44um equivalent pixels.

The sensor supports 50MP at 24 frames a second (fps), and 8K video at thirty frames per second (fps), with a 1.22 um equivalent performance. It also supports triple exposure HDR output at 12.5-megapixel photos at 30 frames/second. This sensor is capable of CPHY (DPHY), CPHY (1.8V) and dual DOVDD (21.2V).
