Samsung’s press release claims:

Samsung’s 10 megapixel camera phone (SCH-B600) is 6mm thinner and 10g lighter than the 7 megapixel camera phone (SCH-V770) and sets itself apart from its previous megapixel camera phones by combining mobile TV capability in Satellite standard.

Samsung hopes to stay at the front of mobile phone technologies and revolution with “the world’s first 10 megapixel mobile phone.” Consumers first got a glimpse of the phone when it was unveiled during CeBIT in March.

Samsung is known for placing high megapixel cameras in its line of cell phones. In October 2004, the company launched a 5-megapixel camera phone to consumers in Asia. In November 2005, an 8-megapixel camera phone was released on the market.
