This sensor supports 3X optical zoom, a pretty neat feature for a mere handset. Samsung SCH-W880’s module was developed by Samsung Electro-Mechanics (SEM) and it’s the world’s first module for mobile phones to integrate a 12 megapixel sensor with optical zoom.

The developer of this component also mentions that its flash related circuits will provide a constant brightness, allowing the user to take photos of subjects that are 10cm close, up to 150cm. This flash will affect the photos taken to subjects on a distance of up to 3 metres. The same sensor supports 1280 x 720 pixels video recording @ 30 fps, image stabilization, blink and face detection, macro mode and more.
