LG Innotek announces Its Widest Aperture Camera Module in the LG G4

LG Innotek has announced the development of a groundbreaking 16MP camera module with an aperture of f/1.8, making it LG Innotek’s widest aperture camera developed for a smartphone. The advanced camera module began mass production at LG Innotek’s plant this week and will be unveiled to consumers for the first time in the LG G4 later this month.

The advanced design of the camera module means that it receives 80 percent more light than in the highly praised camera found on the LG G3. More light means better looking imag-es in low light environments and less blur when shooting action and fast moving objects. Large apertures on smartphone cameras has been challenging to develop due to the com-plexity and size of developing modules that must fit in the very limited space of today’s smartphones.

Furthermore, in response to the explosive growth of selfies, LG Innotek developed an 8MP front-facing camera module, its highest resolution for a front camera to date. This high reso-lution module’s ultra-thin IR filter keeps infrared light from entering the camera lens, giving images taken with the front camera more natural and accurate colors. The 0.11mm thin filter is roughly half the thickness of competing IR filters.

“At LG Innotek, we are constantly working to ensure that the cameras we develop allow us-ers to capture and preserve the moments that are most special to them,” said Ung-beom Lee, CEO of LG Innotek.

“We are extremely excited to see our technology in LG’s next flagship smartphone because we believe that the power, precision and operability of our camera module will clearly make an impression on consumers.”

The new 16MP camera module is now under mass production at LG Innotek’s plant and will be introduced on the LG G4 smartphone on April 28th.
