Samsung 3MP Camera Phones

In a second announcement today, Samsung today said it has successfully produced a 3-megapixel camera sensor destined for ultra-slim cellphones such as the eventual successor to the Trace. By refining its manufacturing process with 90-nanometer copper chips, the company has managed a sensor using the new resolution with a quarter-inch lens aperture in the same space as the 2-megapixel sensors that currently dominate higher-end slim phones. This comes without a drop in quality, Samsung claims: its new sensor produces images at the same quality as a larger, 0.33-inch sensor with the same image. The company expects volume production of the sensor in early 2007 and should have phones using the technology soon afterwards.
