Samsung unveils 12-megapixel phone

by on01 June 2009


An exercise in futility

Samsung has shown off the world's first 12-megapixel mobile phone, the Pixon M12 with a 28mm wide angle lens, touch controlled auto-focus, and a bunch of clever photo related features.

Unfortunately, cramming 12 million pixels onto a sensor the size of a flea doesn't mean you get good photos, not even close. But, marketing people love this kind of nonsense, and so does the majority of consumers, so we think it will work out just fine for Samsung. Also, the camera records 720x480 video at 30 fps.

The Pixon 12 ships with 150MB of internal storage and a microSD slot, GPS, FM radio with RDS, Xenon and LED flash.
