Samsung don't give us 3D camera or 3D viewing screen because it is really totally not necessary. Give us better camera lens quality, more battery juice perharps?
Can't wait to see S3 next year ~

What good would a front-facing 5mp camera be?

I would love to see a 5mpx cameraphone with the Nokia N8 sensor. Think about it: for Facebook you need ~0.35mpx, for HDTV display and a standard 6"x4" print at magazine dot pitch (300dpi) you need ~2mpx, and even for a high resolution monitor you need only ~3.5mpx. 5mpx would be enough for even 2x crops on almost all these scenarios, while the big sensel size would mean extremely good dynamic range and high iso performance.

If this is true, then it seems Samsung didnt even try to improve the photo quality of its image sensor and high ISO without grains and low light indoor performance
what a shame

It could be the front facing camera! I would love a 5 megapixel front facing camera

The Nokia N8s camera is amazing, but 12mp is not necessary on a phone. Uploading to FB and Twitter, you don't need an image so large. 8mp is more than enough. Just keep improving the lens and software, add optical zoom if possible and try and create a smaller xenon flash.

Think about the data costs that would come up from a video chat and the lag... Oh man.. Think before talking, ok?
