Samsung’s Pixon 12 offers a controversially large number of pixles

We can’t wait to get a hold of one of these to test it’s Image Quality.   We consider 12 Megapixels to be a ridiculously large number for a camera phone.  This phone has been delayed before but apparently is now released in Asia and Europe.

News of it’s release in june from Engadget:  Samsung’s Pixon 12: a dozen megapixels of cameraphone nonsense in June

Here is a test of the phone.   Apparently it has the ability to take a decent picture, but we still think that the 12 megapixels is a waste of Memory and Network bandwidth.  See more for some low light tests.
We’re not impressed with the low light video performance:

Notice how there is no detail present anywhere that is not lit by the spotlights. Some of this may be because the bright lights are effecting the dynamic range of the exposure. But having pixels that are very small is likely a compounding factor.

GoMobile has a Good review of the device

Still have not been able to find any pictures made in actual low light… maybe because they didn’t come out? If you have any, however bad, please send them to us at
