Should have been free as kit lens, really.

h2k: Very interesting: less megapixels, but takes SD cards again - good moves for snap-happy folks (including those who connect the phone to a system camera). And with stabilization and weatherproofing at that, this new Samsung pair ticks all the boxes for me*.

Now if only Samsung wouldn't flood their devices with sometimes difficult to delete software trash. (On a recent fw upgrade to an older Samsung i got un-asked for apps from a very stupid national tabloid, which i considered an insult, among about 9 other unasked-for apps.) I will certainly prefer other manufacturers if they offer decent outdoor-worthy Android smartphones with good cameras. But i very much prefer 12 megapixels over 20 megapixels, if this improves general iq.

*looking for a smartphone/pocket computer/pocket cam that can be taken on mild outdoor trips without many worries and takes relatively reasonable pics especially at evenings and night, when i less don't have my system camera around

Nexus 5X will tick many of your checkboxes.

Peiasdf: Ignore the fact the camera module ripped off iPhone's resolution, HTC's UltraPixel and Canon's Dual Pixel, I am sure the result would be great.

LOL, 12MP is iPhone's patent? FWIW, even the 16MP S6 trounced the iPhone 6S+ output. Apple is generations behind now, accept the truth and die in envy.

Hmm I'd rather buy Nexus 5X, much better and well-optimized and guaranteed FW update up Android 8 or 9. =D

No thanks, I'll just carry my GF7 + 12-32mm, or with 9mm BCL for that fishy result.

They should have made this 24-250mm ala TZ100 and replace the pop-up flash with EVF.

Just create a phone with 1 inch sensor and call it a day.

Henrikw: I love the IS, but 22mp is completely unnecessary. Image quality is what counts and most smart phones still have a long way. Can't see how packing 22mp inside an even smaller sensor is going to improve the quality - particularly low light/high iso which is where every single smart phone utterly fails.

I was planning to hold on to my iphone 5 until there is a big leap forward in image quality (I take loads of photos with my phone).
Seems I will be waiting for a long time

You should have sold your iPhone 5 like 2 years ago. There are at least 10 phones that are way better in photo IQ.

Marty4650: Is this any more than a GF7 with a firmware upgrade?

I will be more than happy to give my GF7 a FW update.

brownie314: This is a much needed product. Because now the gf7 will technically be the "older model" and be in line for some discounts, while actually, essentially being the same camera.

"Apple has been doing this for years"

More like decade?

Good thing I bought at refurb GF7 and did not wait for this. Such a pathetic update Panny, WTH? The sensor is capable of 4K video, even the1080p is infinitely better than overpriced/overhyped GoPoof cameras.

Yoggie: Smart move. They cannot compete with the cheap knockoffs on the low end so they are better off sticking with the high end. The difference between a knockoff and the Hero+ LCD is inconsequential for the casual user butt the difference between the Hero4 and even the best knockoff is huge for a pro user.

Well what is the point of 4K video from a camera with microscopic sensor? I would bet my Panny GF7 with WA lens will produce clearer video even if it has only 1080p capability.

Those knockoffs apparently are better performers at cheaper price. I think they should reverse their plan and abandon their overpriced model segment and cut the prices to stay competitive.

Expensive! Just buy A6000 and forget about 4K, you will be fine. =D

The lowlight shot/video is just plain horrible. Not sure why someone would use this other than for fun under broad daylight.

Well, come to think of it, I would rather buy this to take a picture of a freaking potato than buy the picture of it for a ridiculos price of 1.5 million. That buyer should have bought brain instead!
