Samsung unveiled the innov8 (i8510) 8MP camera phone. The Samsung innov8 will be actually available globally starting August. It took 3 years for Samsung to release an 8MP camera phone outside of Korea. In 2005 Samsung announced the SPH-V8200, which was the first 8MP camera phone.
Samsung innov8 (pronounced [in-uh-veyt]) features a 2.8 inch 16m color LCD display, 8G or 16GB Flash memory, DivX, WMV, Real Player and MPEG4 video player, external dual speakers, 3D sound, DNSe 2.0, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, and GPS.
The Samsung innov8 runs Symbian OS V9.3, S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 and comes bundled with Asphalt and FIFA 08 video games.
Samsung innov8 is going to be launched in Europe in August, and then expanded to other markets during September.

Samsung already has announced a 10MP camera phone back in 2006 with the B600. Then somehow the resolution race stopped for camera phones. It is also today known that a resolution of 8MP is way sufficient and that it is more important how big and sensitive the CCD is. Additionally the processing around taking a photo has become the driving factor for image quality. Sensitivity and flash functionality have been the biggest issue with camera phones so far.
