The world’s thinnest 5-megapixel CMOS sensor by Sharp

Sharp and sharpness are synonym, not only in words but also in actions. Sharp’s sharpness is getting further pointed with every passing day and this 5-megapixel CMOS sensor is just a manifestation of that pointedness. This 5-megapixel CMOS sensor with 9.5-x9.5-x 6.6-millimeters is being considered the smallest in the industry. This thin size will make it easier to slip sensor in already overcrowded insides of the upcoming cell phones. Samples have been slated to vessel out at the end of this month around $96 and its commercial production will be started after a month.


It is interesting to watch how it competes to the present higher-resolution cellphone cameras like the LG’s Viewty.

No doubt a tiny sensor with high pixel is somewhat creditable but the question rises about the quality pics as it must not be like a disposable camera.
