Shutters have come down on the latest CMOS image sensor by Sony, with an all new highest megapixel snap coming into focus.
Ahhh, camera puns Ã¢â‚¬â€œ there’s no better way to waste a word count. Seriously though, Sony has just put the wraps on a 12.25 megapixel CMOS Image Sensor named Ã¢â‚¬ËœExmor’ for their upcoming mobile phones.
Also going under the moniker IMX060PQ, and has the industry’s current highest pixel count which is the equivalent to a 12.25 megapixel resolution capable of 4040 x 3032 images.
It’s been designed to not add any unnecessary bulk to the phone, as it only measures up to being 7.5mm in size.
Although no phones have been mentioned as yet in which it might feature, or even a time table for said handsets, it is due to roll off production lines March 2009. Expect them to be seen in phones late next year or just in time for CES 2010.
Especially if you take into account 8megapixals have only just been seen in phones, despite an announcement of a similar nature in 2004
