LG recently disclosed to the press that they are working on a new camera phone with a 12 megapixel sensor that is slated for release later this year. Though admittedly bigger is not always better, LG feels compelled to move forward having to match other competitors' features.

With this it becomes evident that the megapixel race has moved from standalone digital cameras to the ones built in phones, too. LG hopes to compete with other similar offerings like the Sony Ericsson Idou that was the first 12MP camera phone to be announced during this year's Mobile World Congress.
