OmniVision has made a new 14.6-megapixel image sensor specifically for mobile phones which will give them the ability to shoot 1080p video at a breezy 60 frames-per-second. Considering that we're talking about mobile phones here, that's quite a nice upgrade.
The OV14825 image sensor is designed to go easy on power consumption and will hopefully enter mass production in the second quarter of this year. There's no word on when we'll start seeing it in mobile phones, but I'm hoping it's before I buy my next one, even if it's uncertain whether phones hitting the market in the near future will be able to process all that data from the sensor.
Ah well, there's at least always the novelty of saying that it's a 14.6-megapixel phone. [Mobile Burn]
