The iPhone 5's 8-Megapixel Camera Introduced

"With our new OmniBSI-2 architecture, we have further miniaturized our pixels while delivering a 20 percent improvement in peak quantum efficiency in all color channels, a 35 percent improvement in low-light sensitivity and a 45 percent increase in full-well capacity in an extremely compact and power efficient package.”

“This 1.1-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel enables the next generation of miniaturization in mobile cameras, and is key to the high-resolution smartphone camera roadmap,” added Rosdahl.

“sampling [of the new 8MP OV8850] will begin in August, with mass production expected in the first calendar quarter of 2012,” OmniVision said.
