Why is the Galaxy Note II using a 8 megapixel camera?
Samsung wanted to use a 13 megapixel shooter inside the Galaxy Note II.
Samsung originally wanted a 13 MegaPixel sensor in the new Galaxy Note II. Sony was going to make the 13MP sensor but at the last moment Sony told samsung that they couldn’t fullfil the order so that’s why Samsung had to use a 8 MegaPixel Shooter instead.
Sony also told Samsung that they gave the order to LG.
LG announced the LG VU with of course the 13 megapixel shooter.
The good news is that Samsung will be using better camera sensors in the next-gen of high-end smartphones.
But sadly not in 2012, we will not see any kind of 13 megapixel smartphones by Samsung.
Oh and why LG got the order? They were first… And they never will get more sales than Samsung.
