Samsung rumored to be working on a 20MP camera phone for the latter part of 2014

Samsung CameraWhile we eagerly look forward to Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S5, there’s talk of the Korean manufacturer launching another smartphone at the latter part of the year with a new 20MP camera sensor. Our immediate guess is the Galaxy Note 4, as Samsung usually launches two flagships every year, not counting the experimental Galaxy Round handset. We recently heard that Samsung is struggling to launch the Galaxy S5 with OIS on its camera sensor, so this could be the company’s way of making up for that loss.

Samsung still has the 16MP camera in tow for the Galaxy S5, so we will almost certainly not see the new 20MP sensor on the upcoming Samsung flagship. However, with a combination of the company’s recently unveiled ISOCELL camera tech and the deal it has struck with Sony for CMOS sensors, we might be looking at professional grade photography from future Samsung smartphones. We already have the likes of the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Sony Xperia Z1 ruling the roost as far as camera phones are concerned, so it might not be long before Samsung joins in on the action.
