The megapixel battle amongst mobile phone manufacturers may have stagnated but the war to own the best camera in a smartphone is far from over. Samsung’s Electro-Mechanics subsidiary confirmed the development of a new 13 megapixel camera sensor that promises better performance than the rest of the 13 megapixel lot.

For instance, the sensor has an anti-shake function that can correct an angular error of up 1.5 degrees – more then double than most digital cameras – resulting in a blur-free picture. Additionally, the module promises up to eight times brighter low-light pictures and is small enough to pack in the size of prevalent smartphones.

Samsung is currently sampling it with manufacturers and plans to mass produce in first half of 2014, which suggests, it could make it in the Galaxy S5.
