Sony recently introduced several new sensors for camera phones. The new Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS image sensors come in different lens and megapixel configurations. The IMX081PQ module features a 16.41 megapixel sensor and the IMX105PQ features an 8.13 megapixel sensor. Sony says the new sensors have high sensitivity and good low-light performance. The modules can also capture video at full 1080p HD resolution. They are shipping in January and April, respectively, of 2011.

Same tech as the iPhone 4 camera...

Has that Sony-developed back-lit illuminated sensor but with 3x the resolution!

THATS whats up.

Imagine a retina display with 16MP photos on the Apple A5 processor running at 1.5 GHZ with 1GIG of memory and 64 gigs of storage...

The phone would be damn near perfection!

I mean, besides the whole messaging notifications annoying the hell out of you that is.

Just in time

With LTE coming this is right in step with what will work in the real world for consumers.
id love a 16mp lens on an android device 😳
LTE is a must if 16MP pics are going to be sent via mms.

Jeez, I bought a 7MP camera for $100...two years later it is being more than doubled by a damn phone...smh... πŸ™„
