    santhosh5639 , Jul 30, 2015 :
    The teardown of Oneplus Two says Its OV13860 Image Sensor from OmniVision even Carl confirmed that the image sensor is from OmniVision in his recent interview..


    So i searched and found the Product brief for this Image sensor

    The PureCel-S™ OV13860 is a unique 13-megapixel sensor with large 1.3-micron pixels – 35 percent larger than those of traditional 13-megapixel sensors. Despite its 1/2.6-inch sensor size, the OV13860 uses a high chief ray angle (CRA) to enable a camera module z-height of 5.5 mm, suitable for today's slim smartphones.

    The OV13860 is the first of OmniVision's family of PureCel™ backside-illuminated image sensors to leverage the company's stacked die technology, which separates the imaging array from the image sensor processing pipeline into a stacked die structure. This allows for additional functionality to be implemented on the sensor while providing for much smaller die sizes compared to non-stacked sensors, thus enabling smaller module sizes for larger optical format sensors.

    Among the OV13860's advanced features is autofocus contrast calculation at an extremely fast 120 frames per second (fps) while imaging at full-resolution to enable a fast autofocus camera system. When paired with a high-speed actuator, the OV13860 can provide instant autofocus by delivering contrast statistics at up to four times faster than traditional single frame-based contrast calculations. The OV13860 also supports alternate row, dual-exposure high dynamic range (HDR) timing mode for delivering HDR video in challenging lighting scenes.

    The OV13860's large 1.3-micron pixel enables dramatically improved high and low light performance as a result of higher sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, and full-well capacity when compared to products of similar or higher resolution with 1.12 µm pixels. The OV13860 can capture full-resolution 13-megapixel still images at 30 fps or record ultra-high resolution 4K2K video at 30 fps, 1080p full HD at 60 fps, or 720p HD at 120 fps. Each video output format includes additional pixels to support electronic image stabilization (EIS).

    Thanks for the info...still not sure if I will buy the 2, I'm going to wait and see some photos taken by every day users before I decide! The camera is a major selling point for me.

    This is nice, but not sure how to understand the tech specifications - but not the author fault, mine of course.

    Pete Lau said that Oneplus decided to improve photos quality by enlarging Pixel Size rather than larger quantity of pixels.

    Check out the second link in my signature for some pics from the One. And pictures from the 2 will be much better than them! Should be amazing.

    Well, most of that went over my head, but my camera-mad mate says it's awesome.
