Samsung Electronics’ upcoming image sensor will enable high resolution still photography and slow-motion video capture on mobile phones.
The 8 megapixel S5K3H2 is a 1/3.2-inch back-side illuminated CMOS imager with a 1.4 micron pixel.
The sensor captures 15 frames per second at full resolution, 1080p video at 30 fps, 720p at 60 frames per second, and VGA at 120 fps for slow motion.
The slim form factor fits in an 8.5mm by 8.5mm auto focus camera module with a height dimension of 6.0mm, Samsung says.
The S5K3H2 is sampling now, and scheduled for mass production in the second quarter of this year.
