More megapixels doesn't mean better quality. The optics used in phones are too small. You won't benefit from having 10, 12, 14 or whatever high megapixels you want. What's more important in camera phones is bigger and better optics so may protrude out of the phone. A xenon flash is another big plus.
5MPx - 8Mpx is more than sufficient for optics used in phones. My old 5MPx camera takes better pics than the Samsung Innov8.
The N82 2nd edition sounds like a winner with xenon flash, OLED, good battery life and being very pocketable.
The Carolla and Eitri are going to be your ground breakers. I'm sorry but people say other manufacturers already making 8MPx... Only the Samsung Innov8 is decent. The rest hardly show any improvement over the N95 5Mpx.
Stop printing stupid statements just by numbers. I don't care if a phone had 20MPx camera if the image is poor quality!
Hopefully soon we all can get to see the prototype model or even the end products soon, not forgetting the full features of the phones.
Personally I think these sound lioke killer phones :-), I don't know why people are dissing them so much, I wonder if any of them take the shape of any of the renders on google? Like that common (possible hoak) of the n97, n98, the drawing of the concept with the twisting camera, I also like the idea of improving the n85, xenon flash and the joystick I do miss off the N73 so glad there putting that back, pressure touch sensitivity, has anyone brought out one of those yet?
Umm.... somebody said too late for Nokia, 5 and 8MP camera very common and so many others. Come on, iphone only comes with 2MP. Besides, 5 and 8MP camera just started heating up. If you really on taking photos. Better get a SLR digital camera. For now, phone is just a phone and those camera is only part of the features. It is still a long way before camera on the phone will replace the stand alone camera.
What if SE has an 8MP camera phone? So what? It sucks in everything else. Nokia is still the best brand existing today!
Look, for those of you who are expecting 12mp and whatever mind blowing, out of this world specs, as a corporation, nokia only needs to deliver whatever technology it sees will satisfy current trends, right now, 5mp and 8mp are already sufficient, and so is qvga and vga displays..by optimizing price and quality, nokia has became the most popular and successful mobile brand..they are not going to work their asses off and produce an overly advanced phone just to satisfy the geeky pleasures of few people!

I think everyone even including gsmarena ( old news broad caster )will be surprised when nokia release 10 MP Gaming phone on NVIDIA tegra platform in the end of 2009 .
well, even 8MP from nokia is a bit late
but NOKIA use VGA screen for their 8MP device not QVGA
every nokia phone got highlight
N79-XpressOn cover with changing the theme together
"Corolla"-VGA display + 8MP
"Ivalo"-32GB internal flash memory
"Athlon"-N85 refresh, maybe they names N85i, OLED+XENON
"Eitri"-pressure sensitive touch UI with tactile feedback and gestures, integrated compass and accelerometer, proximity sensor
view back what SAM,LG,SE use what type of screen for their 8MP screen

plwh888, 12 Nov 2008I'm excited about COROLLA : 3.0-inch VGA display, non-touch, 8MP camera, half QWERTY keyboa... morei think the half qwerty maybe will be like the blackberry pearl, check it out, it has 2 letters on one key instead of individual letter keys...maybe...
is too late
the time nokia release the phone
most of the market already grab by samsung, sony and lg
looking at the estimated time of fabrication,it's sure that nokia corolla with 8mp will be availble in april or,more sure may-june 2009. at that date,it will cost 700-750 euros,like all high-ends from noia. what a pitty,at that date samsung's and lg's 8mp mobiles, will be for a long time on grey market,at very low prices. i esimate that samsung innov8 will be around 250,maximul 300 euro in may 2009. it's already 480 euro from 550 euro in one month,here in romania. so...
