New OmniVision Sensor Could Bring 12.6MP Photos, 1080p/60 Video to iPhone

OmniVision has announced a new smartphone 12.6 MP image sensor which can record 1080p video at 60 fps.
The OV12825 is a 12.6-megapixel RAW CMOS image sensor designed specifically for high-performance mobile applications. Offering both DSC-quality photography and full 1080p/60 high-definition (HD) video with electronic image stabilization (EIS) makes the sensor a highly attractive solution for high-end feature and smart phone manufacturers.
With a 1/2.5-inch optical format, the OV12825 utilizes OmniVision’s proven 1.4-micron OmniBSI backside illumination (BSI) pixel architecture to achieve best-in class pixel performance and low-light sensitivity of 650 mV/lux-sec. The sensor has a unique binning capability that further increases sensitivity in 1080p HD video mode at 60 frames per second (fps), while still providing additional pixels for EIS. The OV12825 has an active array of 4224 x 3000 BSI pixels operating at 15 fps in full resolution. Additional benefits of OmniBSI technology include increased quantum efficiency, reduced crosstalk and low photo response non-uniformity, which all contribute towards significant improvement in image quality and camera performance.
If indeed Apple has delayed the next generation iPhone launch from its typical summer release schedule then its possible they might use this sensor in the new device.
