Toshiba has upped the ante for camera phones with the news that it has developed a 14.6 megapixel camera sensor.
According to the manufacturer, the sensor is capable of 1080 video recording at 60 frames per second and will deliver the crispest images yet from a camera phone.
Toshiba's technology will reportedly be ready to be incorporated into devices from July 2010, suggesting that 14.6 megapixel cameraphones will almost certainly be on sale in the UK in time for Christmas.
Currently, the highest grade camera installed in a handset is the 12.2 megapixel snapper that features in the Sony Ericsson Satio.
Available now for free on contract plans at £35 per month over two years, the Satio is home to a large 3.5-inch touchscreen, an accelerometer, a media player and a secondary camera for video calling.
The Satio also boasts an FM radio, HSDPA support for a fast web browsing experience and the option to boost storage capacity by up to 32GB by adding a microSD card.
