Nokia's Lumia 1020 Windows Phone based "smartphone" is impressive with its 41 megapixel sensor. The reality is most consumers won't buy a windows phone device because of the very very small number of apps.
What is a smartphone photography lover to do? Why not wait for the next Android based Sony Honami. This new rumored Sony flagship smartphone is expected to look like the existing flagship phone but is expected to come equipped with some heart warming specs. The most important rumored spec is the 20 megapixel camera.
It si expected to have the same 5 inch Triluminous display, a 2.2GHZ Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal storage and a massive 3000 mAh battery.
The main draw here would still be the 20 megapixel ExmoreRS camera sensor which is supposed to provide exceptional performance in difficult situations (such as dimly lit rooms). It seems this new massive sensor will be married to a new type of Sony smartphone lens being nicknamed the G-Lens which is suppose to rival glass sold for dSLRs.
I used my smartphone's camera a lot and having a better camera would definitely influence my buying decision. Like all rumors, take this with a grain of salt. Like all camera rumors, seeing will be believing. We won't know how desirably this device really is until we get some hands on time with it's camera.
