If you are a selfie stick lover, beware: Your stick may be outdated sooner than you expect.
The selfie stick was created to solve the problem of not having arms like an orang-utans and not being able to get all your friends into your selfies. The selfie stick has had huge success throughout the world-so much so that in some museums they have been banned.
But LG Innotek, the manufacturer of camera modules also used in iPhones say that the selfie stick may soon become a relic of the past. This is because they the industry is developing smaller cameras with wide angle views, which allow you to capture a wider field of view.
If these lenses become standard on the front of smartphones, it would allow users to get a bigger mob of friends and background scenery into their selfies, WITHOUT THE STICK.
LG have are scheduled to release their latest G4 phone later this month which is said to have a front camera that can capture a 15% larger viewing field than the previous model. Unfortunately LG have not commented
on exactly how wide and angle the camera will capture.
The front and back cameras on the new G4 will be boosted to 8 and 16 megapixels respectively which means it will have twice as many pixels as the rear iPhone 6 camera.
