If you keep the current lens setup that is, can anyone imagine how grainy or blurry those pics would look if they used cheap smartphone optics and small image sensor? You would need a true lens Carl Zeiss seems to be popular with Nokia, and an image sensor many many times bigger than the ones they currently use to truly get good use of those "16 MP". like they say "5 MP with good pixels can take better snaps than a 12 MP with bad pixels" even the current size of camera sensors in all HTC devices is nowhere near a good enough size to get the best pictures out of the "5 MP" they claim to be.

Having worked for Zeiss in the 80's, all there lenses were made of optical grade glass and not plastic. If that's still the case, any phone with a Zeiss lens would a good option.

Call it a merger of rumors, but Pocketnow.com is claiming that the HTC Bresson is the same device in that HTC commercial, the one that mentions a 16MP camera and shows clearly a Windows Phone-design. Combined with the leaked T-Mobile roadmap from ThisIsMyNext (the ex-Engadget team's new gig) which mentions the 'Bresson' for a post-September release (hello 'Mango') and you have yourselves a nice flagship phone.
Though the rest of the specs are unknown, as is the final design (though this is clearly influenced by the Nexus S, which we really like), you can bet besides a 16MP camera (really?) the next gen Qualcomm chipset, 800x480 resolution and probably a boatload of memory.
Could Windows Phone 7.5 really big the big moment, the big push that we've all be waiting for? Big hardware, big new OS features and some street-cred? We sure think so.

So now this cropped up again... 16MP HTC Bresson Windows Phone for T-Mobile? | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews but I still firmly believe this --> 16 MP on a smartphone is a bad idea HTC... But you know what? I hope they can get the camera right this time with an adequate sized sensor and lens setup, I might buy this phone.

I'm definitely jealous and AT&T best to be getting this or they better make this buy-out happen -- yesterday! Hopefully that'll just give AT&T the exclusivity to get their version if that's the case.
If it's modeled after the Nexus S, can we haz front facing camera too?

mmm my carrier is none of the big ones so it should be interesting to see what next gen phone should come here. I'm betting the Nokia ones will be there because my carrier has like every freaking nokia out there and their current flagship is the Nokia N8 4g. ( Though by far their best selling smartphone is their Galaxy S )

Oooooh but if it is only a 3.7 in. screen that's a total deal breaker for me. After going 4.3 (HD7) from 3.7 (OG Droid) I just can't go back! Lol 4 in. is as small as I'll take.

i want it because it looks like the nexus s or mozart (the wp7 devices i wanted to begin with).

You know what though? The sensation was the first device after switching to wp7 that made me reconsider Android but I came back to senses lol. If they don't get the lens right or the screen size big enough, then I'll just wait for Nokia devices as those cameras are amazing anyways and hopefully they can get a 4 in. or above phone going.
