Toshiba is set to launch a brand new camera module with unique hardware which will refocus all of the photos you take on your smartphone. Known as the TCM9518MD, the module packs dual 5MP sensors and a separate processing chip which will capture all image and depth data in a picture. With this new technology, Toshiba says that consumers will soon be able to take pictures that are not currently possible with normal lenses.

The TCM9518MD is currently being shipped to phone manufacturers right now for testing, and the module should hit the market in devices within the next year (perhaps in the HTC One+).
