World’s First 5MP Cameraphone Sensor With 3X Internal Optical Zoom

By David Ponce

LG has developed this very small and tidy module, which they hope will be picked up by cellphone manufacturers. And why shouldn’t they? It’s the world’s first 5MP sensor with 3X optical zoom . Not just any optical zoom mind you: a fully internal optical zoom.

That’s right, no more ridiculous protruding lenses from your so-called compact mobile phone. Nine researchers worked day and night for one and a half years to develop the module.

Hmm… and that’s all the info you’re going to get. Story VIA The Raw Feed.
