The new OV12825 sensor is not only capable of 1080p video recording, but can also capture stills with resolution of 4224×3000 pixels at 15fps. Other highlight features include pixel-shift image stabilization and fast continuous still image shooting.
OmniVision has made the camera sensor of the iPhone 4 but now there are some rumors suggesting that Apple might be switching to Sony’s 8 megapixel back-lit sensor for the iPhone 5 (like the one on the XPERIA Arc).
