The sensor integrates a four-cell color filter array and on-chip hardware re-mosaic.

The sensor was built using OmniVision’s PureCel Plus stacked die technology that works in low light conditions and enables users to capture images in fast mode and multi-camera sync. An integrated type-2, 2x2 microlens phase detection autofocus (ML-PDAF) helps to boost autofocus accuracy and provides a CPHY interface for greater throughput using fewer pins and a DPHY interface.
