Lensas F2218 8 megapixel CCD sensor Cameraphone

I thought that we’ll only see the first 8 megapixel phones next year. Turns out I was wrong. Chinese already have one ready to hit the street. And from the specs available it looks really impressive.

Produced solely for domestic market Lensas F2218 comes equipped with 8 megapixel CCD (!) sensor camera, able to shoot full blown 3264×2448 pixel resolution images.

Unfortunately, there is a reason you won’t see Lensas F2218 anywhere outside of China. The maker of the phone is pretty new to the game, and it shows. According to PCOnline.com.cn, Lensas F2218 got the looks and the specs but is pretty slow, unresponsive and buggy.

And the picture quality? I’m no expert on this, so check them out yourself here.

Still, 8 megapixel CCD sensor camera in a mobile phone – that’s a really interesting piece of news. I guess now that Chinese have it, it’s only a matter of (not much) time until we see something similar in a handset made by one of the biggies.

    Don't waste your money on this phone. The longer you own it the less it works. Mine no longer holds the signal, it turns off randomly. The ear phone connection is defective. I have contacted the company on a number of occasions and have not had one reply so am unable to get it fixed under warranty. Granted it takes great pictures but you can buy a camera for cheaper that does that, it is not point having a camera phone that doesn't work as a phone.
