Sharp to Release 1/3.2-inch, 12 Megapixel CMOS camera module

Will we be seeing slimmer smartphones sporting Sharp's 12.1 megapixel shooter?

To help make the smaller and slimmer smartphone demanded by consumers, Sharp Corporation has come up with a 12.1-Megapixel, 1/3.2-inch CMOS camera module with optical image stabilization. The camera module has the thinnest profile in the market, with a height of just 5.47mm.

The optical image stabilization system in the camera module uses a lens-shift system to control the lens, enabling steady and sharp images to be shot in situations prone to blurring caused by camera-shake. The new camera module can also capture video in Full-HD.

Sharp will be shipping samples of its camera module from 2 December 2011, so let's hope these make it into upcoming smartphones soon.
