It's been a few years since Samsung unleashed its 10 megapixel cameraphone
onto the world. Now we're hearing that Samsung will push the limits of absurdity to a full 12 megapixels "this month," likely at Mobile World Congress. The phone is expected to hit the production lines in February with a European debut shortly thereafter. No details are provided other than the picture above used (but not attributed) by Unwired View
. If this is the unannounced phone then we can obviously expect GPS geotagging, DivX video capture, and WiFi with DLNA support. One thing is clear: Samsung thinks that Europeans are pixel braggarts
with little concern for image quality.Update
: Nope, that image is just a Photoshop of an 8 megapixel Innov8
-- still, we wouldn't be surprised to see the same feature set and industrial design in a 12 megapixel handset.
