5 megapixel Moto ZN5 nears

1 min read Networks & Network Services
5 megapixel, Motorola and Kodak ring a bell? Well, a 5MP co-branded shooter is obviously just around the corner. What's even better, some leaked pictures shed more light on specs.
Motorola Kodak is going to be named ZN5 and is to feature a 5 megapixel auto focus camera with Xenon flash. There is also a LED flash, which is probably to be put to use when shooting video. The camera itself will be able to shoot in RAW mode, unprecedented in cameraphones. There is even binned RAW (producing lower resolution photos but preserving color depth), which is a rarity even among the dedicated camera devices.

The published camera samples are however an entirely different story - we are far from impressed by the prototype. Still, having tested quite a few beta devices we know better than calling this a failure. We are yet to see how the Motorola ZN5 retail version will perform.

Motorola ZN5 will run on the love-or-loathe Linux-based OS. It is going to feature a QVGA screen and will stand at only 11.8mm thick. A 3.5mm standard audio jack is visible on one of the photos and so is the USB slot. Motorola ZN5 is coming with a morphing keypad, similar to the ROKR E8. The final treat with a reasonable degree of certainty is TV out.
