Samsung reveals new 8-megapixel camera module for phones
The face detection seen in the previous models of the company (such as G800, Soul, G400), now features “photography Smiles” and “eye flicker recognition” features. We guess, the first one automatically snaps a picture as soon as it detects a grin on a face in the viewfinder and the second one lets the camera know if there are eyes “seen” as closed so it waits before snapping the photo.
The sensor is expected to be commercially available in the second half of 2008.

the thing people need to realize is megapixel isn't a measure of quality, it's a measure of size. A very high-quality 2-megapixel lens will still show better pictures than an average-quality 8-megapixel lens.
