The much-hyped Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was finally launched a couple of weeks ago, and it impressed in pretty much every way possible. Quad-core processor? Check. 2GB of RAM? Check. Jelly Bean (Android 4.1)? Check.
However, one slight disappointment was the camera. See, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was rumoured to have a 13MP snapper, but it launched instead with just 8MP. Sob.
Of course, it’s not just about the number of megapixels; it’s what you do with them that counts. But 13MP would’ve looked a lot better on paper, at least.
According to Korean site DDaily, Samsung did indeed intend to whack a 13MP camera in the Galaxy Note 2. So what happened?
Essentially, LG got to the supplier, Sony, first, and placed a massive 13MP order. As such, Sony was unable to entertain Samsung. Bah.
LG’s order pertains to the imminent LG Optimus G. As well as a 13MP camera, LG Optimus G specs include a quad-core processor, 4.7 in display (1280 x 768), and 2GB of RAM. Not too shabby. It lands in Korea this month.
