Rumours Suggest 13 Megapixel Camera On Samsung Galaxy S4

There are already plenty of rumours circulating regarding the features of the Samsung Galaxy S4.  Despite the fact that Samsung is yet to officially acknowledge that the device exists, there is plenty of excitement surrounding features of the handset which is rumoured to be the follow up to the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S3.


One of the rumours which is currently doing the rounds is regarding the handset’s potential camera feature.  It is widely expected that the Galaxy S4 will pack a 13 megapixel camera for a number of reasons.  Apparently, the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 were originally intended to have 13 megapixel cameras.  However, Sony (which manufactures the 13 megapixel camera units) allocated too many camera sensors to LG for its Optimus G handset, so there was not enough left for the Samsung devices.  Therefore, the South Korea based manufacturer had no choice but to utilise the now familiar 8 megapixel camera.


According to a post on Samsung’s website back in September, it is working on a next generation 13 megapixel camera sensor to be used on its 2013 smartphones and tablets.  Added to the fact that devices like the LG Optimus G and Sony Xperia T have 8 megapixel cameras, Samsung will surely be very keen to compete with these devices when it comes to the camera.


It is easy to see why there is already so much excitement building for the next instalment of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy line.  Ever since the first Galaxy S was launched into 2010, the handset’s have been popular and very impressive.  To date, the original Galaxy S and last year’s Galaxy S2 have sold a combined 50 million units.  Launched earlier this year, the Samsung Galaxy S3 famously took just 100 days to sell 20 million units, and Samsung recently made an announcement that sales have topped the 30 million mark.

When Samsung launches a follow-up to the Galaxy S3, similar levels of success look all but assured.
