Sony Ericsson might go crazy with a 12 MP camera phone
2008 has brought more 8 Megapixel camera phones than the world has probably expected, but if these are still not enough for you, wait and see what 2009 will come with.
Apparently, Sony Ericsson, the one and only maker of Cyber-shot mobile phones, plans to raise the bar with a 12 Megapixel handset.
This should be the successor of Sony Ericsson C905, codenamed Shiho, which packs an 8.1 MP camera with autofocus, xenon flash and all the other features required for high-quality photography.
MobileMentalism has got tipped off about the new Sony Ericsson 12 megapixel phone codenamed Kokura and says that it’ll be based on TI3240 chipset, Symbian 9.4 S60 OS and will have iPhone like touchscreen interface.
The SEMC blog got some info about it too and says that 12 Megapixel Sony Ericsson will be released in the second half of 2009. The handset will resemble the C905 in design and specs but it should be thinner.

Well, this is just a rumor for the moment, but Sony Ericsson should have no problems in coming with the said 12 Megapixel phone. Its parent company Sony has lots of high-end digital cameras in its portfolio, hence SE theoretically has access to all the technology and knowledge needed for creating the world’s first 12 MP camera phone.
Guess we’ll find out next year if the Swedish-Japanese joint venture can actually do this.
