Samsung is developing a 20-megapixel camera which could appear in its future flagship smartphones, according to unnamed employees of the manufacturer cited by the Korean press.
The leak claims the camera, which is unlikely to be featured in the Galaxy S5 as it will not be ready until the end of 2014, will have advanced auto-focus features. It is not known whether it will have optical image stabilization, however.
Samsung is also working on a 16 megapixel camera which is expected to appear in 25 per cent of its 2014 range, including the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5.
The smartphone with the highest megapixel count is currently Nokia’s Lumia 1020, with 41.
