Samsung ups the ante may unveil a 12 Megapixel camera phone this month
If rumors are true then Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona, Spain will witness the launch of the world’s first 12 Megapixel camera phone by Samsung. The Korean giant already has 8 Megapixel phones under its sleeve it is all set to start off another megapixel war. Information is still sketchy if the phone would be running Android, Windows Mobile or Linux. But whatever the OS maybe it will surely give Nokia and Sony Ericsson a run for their money. TelecomsKorea is reporting that the phone will be launched in Europe first which is very refreshing as the high-end phones are normally launched in East first. Pricing and availability is not known for now, all we can do is wait for Mobile world congress to kick off.
