Duckface! MeituKiss HD sports two 8 MP cameras by Sony

If you have been longing for a makeup-friendly front camera on your phone, today is your lucky day, as MeituKiss HD was detailed in China, and the handset sports not one, but two Sony 8 MP camera modules - one on the back and one at the front.

It's as good a way as any to try and differ from the competition, and the phone has otherwise decent specs, too - 4.5" HD display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core of the obligatory for Chinese gear these days MediaTek processors, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage plus a microSD slot, and it comes in a dual-SIM version, flaunting Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The phone has a dedicated Fujitsu image processor, which by the way is the combo in the S4, too, so you can be sure that your duck face will come out like no other.

Getting hot and bothered? MeizuKiss HD will hit shelves beyond the Great Wall next week, on May 16th to be precise, and you can be sure it won't break your girly bank, as that's the target market of a pinkish handset with high-res front camera, ain't it?

Knowing those China and Taiwanese girls, you know, cute duckface profile pic in Facebook = 20,000 followers and 3000 friends average. I'd like to one-night-stand at least one of them. =P

How is it that the top OEMs can't go beyond the 2.1MP front facing camera and a small company has 5+MP on the front facing camera! o_0

Because front facing cams are used for video calls and maybe as a mirror only? Videos mean maximum 1080p; 2 Megapixel is already roughly 1600 X 1200. 4K videos are around 38XX X 2160 (which is still less than 5 Megapixels). So there is no need for more than 3MP (or 5MP, if you think video calling with 4K quality is possible in 3 years' time) for a front cam. It only increases the cost.

Imagine how quickly people would blow through their data allotments doing video calls with an 8MP snapper with its settings maxed out. It would only take a few minutes to blow through a GB. No need for all that unless the whatever program you're using limits the settings.

I wonder how many people actually use their front facing cameras. I've had at least 2 smart phones with them and I can't ever remember having a video chat. Tried taking the profile mugshot, but the front facing camera is very awkard to use. I could see it being helpful for make up and the like though. if they disappeared off of phones, I'm not sure I'd miss them. Thought maybe my upcoming trip overseas will change my opinion - a way to communicate back home.
