Samsung developing 13 megapixel camera sensor for smartphones and tablets

While Samsung's latest and greatest smartphones, namely the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II, come with 8-megapixel cameras, the company is already hard at work developing the next generation of camera sensors for its future devices. One of them is the CMOS-based S5K3L2 BSI camera sensor with 13 megapixels and maximum resolution of 4208 by 3120 pixels...

seeing Samsung's release cycles and sales, I think they wouldn't release anything that will overpower the S3 for now especially if it ain't polished.
Samsung Galaxy S IV it is, 13MP and an ARM15 processor, possibly a 1080p Super AMOLED screen too.but that's next year.

if I would make the SGS4 spec sheet it would comprise of,
Exynos 5 dual core A15 processor, 13MP camera, 3GB of RAM, maybe a 5-inch 1080p S-AMOLED HD+, ultra fast transfer rate for microSD card, 4G LTE and NFC, wireless charging.
SHUTTER F*CKING KEY! and the super cool haptic technology developed by tactus, the tactile haptic feedback! I'll also find a way to make it a dual-sim phone so it would sell like hotcakes! :)))

im not sure about the 13 MP cam and the 3 Gb RAMS , since they just started with the its development now ..it will take them at least a year to start production in big volume ,, so i would replace the 13MP with the last year research "12MP" mention in the article above .
and for the ram thing ... like 7 months back ..or more samsung started production a DDR3 mobile RAMs so i guess it might be 2 GB DDR3 instead of the current DDR2 rams
as for resolution .... they said that they figured out how to make a 350+ ppi 5" screen not sure how much that would be
well that all i can modify from my side of view

The standard really should be 12 to 13MP by now!

Anyone who puts a 13MP camera in a tablet would be foolishly ignoring the fact that nobody really gives a toss about a 13MP camera in a tablet.

Anyone who foolishly doesn't put a higher MP camera in their tablet is ignoring the fact that people actually DO give a toss about the camera on their tablet. Maybe YOU don't, but many people do. I take way more pictures with my iPad than my Galaxy Note. It's just more enjoyable when fooling around at home. And camera costs are nominal compared to many other components.

If it's gonna be like the 12MP Sony camera or 13MP LG camera or 16MP HTC camera, NO THANK YOU. Those are terrible.
