Phones will get thinner with this sort of tech

Sharp has announced a new camera sensor for smartphones that will allow smartphones to become even thinner and still shoot great photos. The new sensor is RJ63YC100 and it has 12.1MP resolution. The camera sensor is backlit CMOS style and uses lens shift optical image stabilization. The big feature is that the sensor is only 5.47mm thick.

This is the thinnest camera sensor out there and it has the ability to record 1080p HD video. The video can even use the optical image stabilization. The sensor supports output to a HD screen as well for viewing in real time.

The sensor is a 1/3.2-inch CMOS sensor and measures 11mm W x 11mm L x 5.47mm H. It uses a 4-lane MIPI interface and also has autofocus. The camera sensor will ship in samples on December 2 and volume shipments will start January 10. Sharp plans to make 100,000 of the thin sensors monthly.
