Samsung Techwin recently announced a new camera module for phones, which they will start producing in bulk next year. The entire package is 9 mm thick and features a 3 Megapixel sensor with autofocus and 3x optical zoom. In addition the new camera is also supposed to be more shock resistant and consume less power than current high end modules. While Samsung's new camera uses more traditional technology, Taiwan's Creative Sensor is set to commercialize liquid lenses. The company is set to produce autofocus cameras for phones based on Varioptic's technology next year as well.

Now if they could just make a real kick a$$ battery.

It always seems to me that their high end phones don't have enough battery life to support the features, and people end up buying the extended batteries which only bulk up the phone.
Are you talking about the N80, in particular? heh.
I cant wait to see those! Very Happy

Size vs. Quality

while this is great news for cramming more MP's into smaller and smaller spaces, if it's anything like the 3mp shooter on their D900, it definitely sacrifice some quality in order to fit it in such a thin phone

... here are some examples comparing the D900 camera with 3.2mp camera phones from Nokia and SonyEricsson (N73 and K800) from gsmarena.com the results are obvious, and while none of these is perfect, the samsung seems to have the lowest quality in every example
