Kodak has developed a new camera sensor for mobile phones. This new sensor will bring high resolution cameras to smaller phones. The KAC-05020 photo sensor is a 1,4 micron, 5 megapixel design that’s smaller than standard sensors by 1,75 microns.
The quality will be the same, but due to the reduced size, the costs of production will go down as well, and users will have high-res cameras in small phones.
This sensor will be available to phone manufacturers in the 2H 2008, but we’re not expecting the first devices with these until 2009.
