You do know Samsung only used Sony sensors the past couple years anyway right? And that they made them preform better in their own phones more than Sony could do? And they made their own before then which Sony couldn't top. Even rivaled Nokia for years. Like the Pixon 12.

Anyway. I'm also quite impressed with the leaked Z1 shots so far. It's good they stepped up. And the Triluminos displays. Nice touch. I still cannot wait to try X reality and see if it's all it's hyped up to be.

yup, just like how dual-core is enough for any smartphone. Anything more and you might as well buy a computer. Right?

If you are so against progress why aren't you still on a feature phone?

samsung gose not write they want to improve ther build quality the use cheap plastic

The only reason Samsung are doing this is because Sony will no longer supply its best mobile sensors to Samsung or any other brand forcing them to develop their own, this is exactly what Samsung have done. Sony mobile on the other hand have been given exclusive access for the first time to Sony's own digital camera tech so I wouldn't be surprised if other manufacturers follow suit of Samsung and have to develop their own sensors as Sony and Nokia will reign supreme for years to come.

I already own a Nokia 808 Pureview, so there is no real need for me to explain any further, other than that i fully under the significance of sensor size, pixel size, OIS etc in relation to mega-pixel count. :)

  • I waiting,Samsung!

Samsung is all about technology. I won't be surprised if this tiny module will also have a short optical zoom.

And don't spam about the 1020 MP count, check your self on gsmarena's photos, the s4 is better than the 1020.
