Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4 and other flagships to have 16-megapixel cameras

Of all the rumors and speculation we’ve heard about the Galaxy S5, one common theme among them has been the fact that Samsung’s next flagship will have a 16-megapixel camera (possibly with optical image stabilization). Now, a report from the Korean Media claims that all 2014 flagships from Samsung will feature 16MP shooters. This isn’t surprising – every Galaxy Note has featured the same camera as that year’s Galaxy S, so if a 16MP camera debuts on the S5, the Note 4 should have one as well.

But what makes the report interesting is that it claims Samsung has placed orders for 181 million 16MP camera modules. A previous report claimed how Samsung is aiming to sell only around 126 million highly priced devices next year (out of an estimate target of 360 million total device sales) – this makes us wonder if Samsung’s rumored super premium Galaxy F series really might be arriving on the scene next year, though that will go against speculation that Samsung isn’t looking to focus on the high-end market for 2014.

All early rumors though, so I guess we’ll see what happens when the time comes.

  3. So much for these 16MP next gen Samsung flagship phones when Nokia and Sony already have 20MP released a month ago.

    No wonder why Samsung is now shifting their focus on mid and low-range phones.

    • Be objective and bias-free with what you say. If what you said was correct then Apple would’ve shifted to low-range phones years ago since the specs on their smartphones are almost always behind the competition. For instance, the iphone 5s had a 8MP camera and it was released 6 months after the Galaxy S4, which had a 13MP camera. In other words, you should not judge a book by its cover.

      Having said that, it would certainly be awesome if Samsung decides to go 20MP for the S5. But 16MP is honestly good enough!
