Samsung said to soon introduce 14.6-megapixel CMOS image sensor
  Driven by attempts to grab a bigger market share in the digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera market, Samsung Electronics is said will introduce a 14.6-megapixel CMOS image sensor in June, possibly helping it to further close its gap with leading player OmniVision, according to industry sources.

The sources indicated that Samsung will introduce a DSLR camera for sale in Taiwan in June. Alongside with the introduction, the company will also introduce a high-resolution CMOS image sensor, according to the sources. The CMOS image sensor was jointly developed by Samsung and Pentax, with Samsung being responsible for the production, stated the sources, who noted that the sensor took two years to develop.

Samsung has already secured a solid foothold in CMOS image sensors in segments that include digital cameras, handsets and PC cameras. Use of Samsung's 5-megapixel resolution CMOS image sensor in Nokia's N-series is a highlight of Samsung's achievement, industry players commented.
