We’re not sure how many people really need a cameraphone with 20MP, but according to rumors that might just be coming from Sony. This new phone is rumored to feature a 20MP Cybershot CMOS sensor and sport Carl Zeiss optics. The codename is Honami, and the phone is supposed to incorporate a 5 inch LED screen, 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a non-removable battery between 2,700 mAh and 3,000 mAh.
At the moment of publishing this story, there are a couple of Sony Cybershot cameras with a 20MP sensor that could reasonably fit into a phone.
But with the whole larger megapixel problem also comes the problem that DSLR owners have faced for a while–the need for more storage space. 2GB of RAM really isn’t a lot for a phone considering how much data and WiFi usage happens these days. Plus, there needs to be a better cloud storage and internal storage solution. Dropbox does a good job, but a service like EverPix might be even better for most consumers.
