Earlier this week Samsung presented world's thinnest 8 megapixel cell phone module. The device is only 8.5mm thick and will supplant 5 megapixel chips found in today's high-end camera phones. The module will be available in the second half of this year and features a couple of new technologies like anti-shake, macro mode and face tracking.
Fortunately, this isn't just a case of megapixel marketing as the module also features anti-shake, a 1-cm macro, and face tracking technology. It also packs a smile shutter feature to snap that picture just as soon as a smile, or vinegar, is detected.
