LinX Imaging is an Israeli startup that produces mobile camera components. The company claims that it utilizes “state-of-the-art multi aperture imaging technology that combines innovative image processing, advanced sensor and optics technology, our cameras set new standards for image quality parameters such as low light performance, HDR, refocusing, color fidelity, shutter lag and more. LinX cameras are significantly smaller than any camera on the market today, leading the way to DSLR performance in slim handsets.”
Sounds impressive. Very.
And now, Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has acquired the company for $20 million.
Just imagine the possibilities. This means we can expect super cameras on iPhones and iPads, most likely. Is this the part where mobile manufacturers like Microsoft and Samsung should be afraid?
