LG Innotek Shows Off the G4's 16-Megapixel Camera
LG Innotek today announced a new camera sensor bound for the LG G4 smartphone. The module, which LG teased earlier this week, has a 16-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/1.8. LG claims the sensor allows 80% more light to reach the sensor than was possible with the G3's camera. LG says the larger aperture will aid low-light and action photography, in particular. LG Innotek also developed a new user-facing camera with an 8-megapixel sensor and aperture of f/2.4. This wide-angle shooter also boasts an IR filter that is half the thickness of competing filters. LG says this sensor is ideal for selfies. Both cameras are expected to be part of the LG G4, which LG is revealing at an event to be held April 28.
