If you have been wondering how exactly will the G4
camera be able to collect 80% more light
than the G3
unit, the answer is a much bigger lens module, reports Korean media today. Done entirely in-house, the new LG Innotek 16 MP camera piece that will make a cameo in the G4 for the first time, has received a lens set with wide f/1.8 aperture that is double the size of the G3 glass. It also consists of not four or five, but a six-element lens, for better light sensing, resulting in a "high-precision, large-diameter module structure
To top it all off, LG Innotek introduced an ultrathin 0.1mm glass blue filter, preventing parasitic infrared emission from penetrating the lens, and skewing the color presentation. Of course, the module will still use the standard 1.12 micron pixel
size, so we wouldn't hold our breath for some unbelievable low-light performance, akin to a DSLR, but still, the LG G4 should have a pretty great, optically-stabilized camera - for a smartphone, that is.
