Broadcom VideoCore IV Chip To Support 20MP Images and Full HD 1080p Video Recording, Coming To Handsets In 2011


Just when you thought 12MP was enough, we heard about Toshiba's processor that will support up to 14.6MP camera sensors on mobile phones. Well, Broadcom has one-upped them with their latest VideoCore IV processor. This processor can handle 20MP images and can even record 1080p video (in H.264 format, which is what they use on Blu-ray discs) if the camera sensor on your mobile phone is good enough. Of course, it'll also have image stabilization and face / smile detection. With this chip you'll also be able to play back Full HD video over HDMI (possibly using micro HDMI in the future).

"The last trick that the Broadcom VideoCore IV has up its sleeve is that it works as a GPU with 128MB LPDDR2 of dedicated RAM, for rendering 3D graphics." Damn, technology evolves too fast. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until 2011 for all of this goodness to hit cell phones.
