Galaxy Note II doesn't have a 13MP camera because Sony could provide Samsung with enough CMOS sensors

Even before the new Galaxy Note II was officially unveiled, we’ve heard a number of rumors that such a device is in development. At that time, the Interwebs were talking about improved camera, saying that the new model will rock a 13-megapixel sensor. Now we’re hearing that those rumors were partly true as Samsung did want to include it in the Note II. The problem, however, is that the Japanese company could supply its Korean partner with enough units so Sammy opted for the “old” 8-megapixel sensor, instead.

It is fair to presume that at the time Samsung started making new Notes, Sony had problems with volume production. Today we know they’ll be supplying LG with 13-megapixel sensors which will be used in the soon-to-be-launched Optimus G. Guess the Note III and perhaps the Galaxy S IV will rock a better camera… Not that we actually need one…
