We all know that gratuitous megapixels don't necessarily make a great camera. But if this particular rumor is true--the Galaxy S IV will have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera--then Samsung could gain another advantage vs. Apple. After all, the iPhone 5's excellent rear camera takes 8-megapixels shots.
Then again, the S IV's alleged 13MP shooter still wouldn't come close to Nokia's 41-megapixel PureView wonder, which reportedly will grace the Finnish company's flagship EOS phone later this year. The S IV's front-side camera is expected to be a 2-megapixel unit; by comparison, the iPhone 5's front cam is 1.2MP.
