Google’s Nexus 5 could be the first smartphone to pack a so-called MEMS camera, giving snap-happy punters the chance to shoot first and focus later.
News of this killer feature has been unearthed in Nexus 5 logs by hardcore Android fans. A brief reference to the component sent Google fanboys into raptures and promises to put the Nexus 5 right up there with the slew of amazing new cameraphones hitting shelves.
MEMS technology means the camera can zone in and focus seven times quicker than your average snapper.
What’s more, it’s more adept at shooting at speed, serving-up improved burst modes.
So what? Well, because of those features, users can focus in on different aspects of a particular frame, long after the shot has been taken.
The tech has already become popular in the unique-looking Lytro camera, which debuted last year.
The Nexus 5’s camera is expected to rock eight megapixels. The device is apparently scheduled for launch in the next few weeks, with Google expected to hold a special event in New York.
