Samsung announces new 13MP camera unit with optical image stabilization
Samsung has revealed a brand new smartphone camera unit with a 13-megapixel sensor, optical image stabilization, and improved low light performance. The announcement (in Korean) explains that the camera's OIS will correct camera shake up to 1.5°—better than the HTC One's 1° OIS.
Because the camera can be hand-held without causing blurriness from an unsteady photographer, Samsung claims that the low light performance is eight times better than current smartphone cameras. The whole component measures at 10.5 x 10.5 x 5.9mm and will feature power-saving technology.
Samsung's press release doesn't name any devices that the new camera will appear in, but tech experts are guessing that we will see it next year in the Galaxy S5 and Note 4.
