Briefly: Samsung's 13MP smartphone module, Wordament hits Android
Future smartphones from Samsung could have greatly improved photographs, thanks to the company's new camera sensor. The 13-megapixel component includes an anti-shake function that is able to correct angular errors of up to 1.5 degrees, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295684==http://techon.nikkeibp.co.jp/english/NEWS_EN/20131005/307520/" rel='nofollow'>writes</a> <em>Tech-On</em>, beating the 0.7 degrees offered by other mobile camera sensors. The module can also produce an image that is eight times brighter than earlier generations of the item, allowing it to be used effectively in low light situations. Samsung Electro-Mechanics is negotiating with smartphone producers and plans volume production early next year. <br />
