Samsung developing 20MP camera sensor for 2014 smartphones

Samsung logoSamsung is reportedly working on a new camera module capable of taking 20-megapixel photographs. The company's Advanced Development Team is apparently hoping to get the high-resolution component ready for shipping in the second half of 2014, something which could coincide with a future major smartphone release, such as a successor to the Galaxy Note 3.

It is thought that the company will be using 16-megapixel camera modules for 25 percent of mobile devices it will shop next year, which ETNews believes will mean approximately 90 million Samsung smartphones and phablets will use the component. This will apparently help the company push towards making the 20-megapixel sensor a "standard" for its flagship products in 2015.

While Samsung may be looking towards making 20-megapixel camera sensors a typical sight in its device range in the future, it certainly will not be the first to offer such resolutions. The Nokia Lumia 1520 has a 20-megapixel PureView camera on the back with autofocus and Zeiss Optics, while the earlier Lumia 1020 and its 41-megapixel sensor can take 38-megapixel images in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, as well as an oversampled 5-megapixel image.
