Samsung announces first 8 megapixel camera phone
Details of Samsung’s first ever 8 megapixel camera phone have emerged – but there is still some confusion over what it will be called.
The handset is due to be available in August this year. It will be based on Symbian OS v9.3 and have HSDPA connectivity at 7.2Mbps
However there is still some confusion over the name of the device; a release was initially sent out by Symbian’s press office, which said that the handset would be called Innov8. However, Samsung says that name was created for the Korean market, and the UK name will be different.
Samsung becomes the second manufacturer to announce an 8 megapixel camera phone, after Sony Ericsson unveiled the C905 last month, which is due later this year.
