LG Innotek has announced a new, smaller camera module for phones with a 4–9x optical zoom range. Unlike fixed telephoto cameras, the Optical Telephoto Zoom Camera Module actually moves the telescopic lenses to zoom, enabling 100% camera resolution at all zoom levels from 4x to 9x. The module also includes optical image stabilization (OIS). LG has worked with Qualcomm to ensure that camera software will be optimized for this new module when running on the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform. The module will be showcased at CES next week.
