The 20MP resolution of the new sensor puts it in the highest class of CMOS sensors for smartphones and tablets, and ensures display of crisp, detailed images, even when zooming in close with digital zoom.
The sensor’s 1.12 micrometer pixel size supports an optical format of 1/2.4 inch and makes possible the realization of camera modules with a height of 6mm or less for mobile devices.
“T4KA7” employs the same high speed circuit technology used in Toshiba’s latest products which pushes the frame rate to a new high of 22 fps, 1.8 times fasterthan its previous 20MP sensor.
With its new 20MP CMOS image sensor，Toshiba makes it possible for manufacturers to build slimmer smartphones and tablets equipped with higher resolution cameras.
