Google has been shortening URLs in the Chrome Omnibox search bar for the past several years, saying it made it easier for users to identify trustworthy domains. Now, however, it has abandoned that experiment and will display the entire URL.

The new product, called ISOCELL JN1, has high light sensitivity and compact size, which allows you to reduce the size of the camera module. This advanced sensor is positioned as a solution for gadgets in the mid-price segment.

The pixel size of ISOCELL JN1 is 0.64 micrometers. This allowed the engineers to fit into the 1/2.76-inch optical format and eventually abandon the massive camera blocks with a protrusion in the development of mid-budget smartphones.
