New Samsung 8 megapixel monster headed to MWC?

It’s hard not to get excited any time a new handset with an 8 megapixel shooter rears its head in the wild. Take the Sammy pictured above. From the look of things, it essentially offers nothing in the way of progress short of a xenon flash. It’s a dumbphone sporting Samsung’s familiar TouchWiz UI and it utilizes an all-too-familiar form factor. That said, we want it and we want it now. There’s something about the number eight that just hits the spot these days – each new handset issued with an 8 megapixel shooter brings us one step further from the near-useless 2 megapixel cams that still mar several otherwise fantastic handsets. As for this one in particular, word on the street is Samsung will introduce it at Mobile World Congress. While the Anycall logo would have immediately removed any hope of us seeing a US version of this puppy in the past, Samsung has surprised us a few times in recent history so we won’t jump to any conclusions. More to come at MWC next month hopefully, but hit the jump for two more shots in the meantime.
