Samsung says Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 will get killer 16MP camera

Galaxy S5 Specs

Earlier reports suggested that Samsung’s next-generation flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone will be getting a significant camera upgrade when it debuts next year and now the news is confirmed. Samsung said this week during its analyst day meetings that the upcoming Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 hero phones for 2014 will both get the company’s new 16-megapixel camera module. And we’re not looking at a simple spec bump here — Samsung plans to make use of its new ISOCELL technology that will seemingly afford huge improvements in low-light photo quality while also improving color reproduction and sharpness in any lighting. Samsung’s Galaxy S4 might not be the runaway smash the company was hoping for, but next year’s hero phone is shaping up to be an absolute beast.
