16-Megapixel Windows Phone 7 handset incoming from HTC?

According to the leaked promo video linked below, HTC is about to launch a Windows Phone 7 smartphone with a 16-megapixel camera. Little is known about the handset as yet – there isn’t even a name for it – but the build looks similar to a couple of HTC’s other WP7 products, such as the HTC Mozart.

The smartphone camera battle is a strange one. Ever since handsets first started to hit the shelves, manufacturers have been trying to outdo each other’s cameras by slowly ramping up the number of megapixels. The reason that’s strange is that, while 1, 2, 5, 8 or 16 megapixels are any easy thing for Joe Public to grasp, more doesn’t necessarily mean better.

The megapixel count simply refers to resolution, which means that the higher number, the larger you’d be able to have your shots printed without them looking blurry. The factors that really determine image quality are the camera lens and image sensor/processor. There’s no detail on either for this handset, but there is a dual flash, which will help in darker environments.

Either way, watch the video below and let us know your thoughts on the Gadget Helpline Twitter feed:
