Samsung SCH-W880 gets 12MP autofocus camera

Samsung's second handset equipped with a 12-megapixel camera has been spotted on Monday and may just replace the current 12-megapixel offering from the phone maker, the Pixon12. The phone, so far only known as the SCH-W880, was spotted in a Taiwanese print ad that reveals the handset's camera as well as 3X optical zoom and the ability to record HD videos. It should also have a 3.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen with WVGA (800x480) resolution.

Otherwise, the phone has a mode dial like conventional point and shoot and SLR digital cameras and a dedicated shutter button. While it's not listed, the SCH-W880 is expected to ship with features many have come to expect and were in the specs of the Pixon12, including Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot and (in Korea) a DMB TV tuner.

Pricing or a release date for the W880 are not known, nor whether it will come to North America. [via SamsungHub]
