Sony is a pioneer in imaging sensors, especially for mobile devices. Almost all the smartphones out there, be it be a budget phone or a premium device, Sony imaging sensors are everywhere. Hence, they play a key role in a smartphone to have a good set of cameras. Thus, to further up their game, Sony announces new 2×2 On-Chip Lens (OCL) solution which the company claims will help in achieving ‘high-speed focus, high-resolution, high-sensitivity, and high dynamic range.

Sony new image sensor detailed

In a conventional sensor, a condenser lens, also known as on-chip-lens, is placed on each pixel. Whereas, 2×2 On-Chip Len can be shared by four adjacent pixels with the same color. Which means this lens technology can be only implemented on sensors with Quad Bayer pixel structure. But by doing so, the sensors can output high-resolution pictures with better high-dynamic range and better light utilization.

Moreover, 2×2 On-Chip-Lens brings other improvements as well when compared to a conventional condenser lens. It enables all the imaging pixels to be used as detection pixels by which phase differences can be detected at a larger level when compared to conventional methods that utilize few dedicated pixels to do the same job. And therefore, focus performance improves to a greater extent in low-light scenarios as well as with objects of different shapes.

Anyways, Sony’s new 2×2 On-Chip-Lens (OCL) will be first used in the upcoming Oppo Find X2 Pro as confirmed by the company at the end of Oppo Inno Day event.
