Samsung 8MP handset
A Samsung handset with an 8-megapixel camera has been spotted in the company's home market of South Korea, making it the third cellphone from the company sporting such a high-count shooter. Unlike Samsung's INNOV8 and Pixon, both of which also sport 8-megapixel cameras and are due to come to North America, it is not known if this latest handset will also make the trip over to this continent. Like the Pixon, the unnamed phone does offer a touchscreen display with 800x480 resolution and the company's TouchWiz user interface.
Other details are scarce, and despite the similar if not identical touchscreen, the new handset does have styling that's as unique as it can be considering the large display. The images of the handset also indicate the 8-megapixel camera has autofocus and Xenon flash functions. [via UnwiredView]
