Samsung Electronics unveiled on Monday the Samsung Pixon12 (M8910), world's first cellphone model with a 12-megapixel camera, a higher resolution than most digital cameras.
The Samsung Pixon12 enables users to take perfect pictures quickly and easily, thanks to a Dedicated Camera Power Key which gives users fast one-touch access to the camera function. Once the camera is turned on, users can aim and snap, capturing images as fast as today?s advanced digital camera. Samsung Pixon12 also features fast image saving for next shot, so users can move to next shot within around 2 seconds.
Camera features inlcude Touch Auto-Focus (AF) tracking and the Smart Auto feature, which allows users to capture the perfect images as the camera automatically changes the scene and mode based on its object, background and lighting. The new cameraphona is also equipped with a Xenon flash. The 28mm wide angle lens also allows a better perspective and more full capture of a scene.
Pixon12?s 3.1" AMOLED screen boasts a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 while providing power-saving features which increase battery life.
Finally, the Pixon12 enables users to organize and manage photos with multiple ways of sorting - by tags, file names, ratings, and time. In addition, the multi-selection feature enables users to pull up images in groups rather than one by one, making viewing and editing photos much easier.
The Pixon12 comes packed with a host of functions which enable consumers to capture, browse and share their images on the move ? all on a full-touch 3.1-inch AMOLED screen.
Samsung Share Pix also lets users upload images and videos to popular social networking sites. Add to that, the phone?s high-connectivity functions including Wi-Fi and HSUPA capabilities.
Samsung said the new Pixon12 model would go on sale in Europe later this month and it wil be expanded to other regions in August, a blow to rival Sony Ericsson, who has been touting a 12-megapixel model since February but will sell it only in the fourth quarter.
