Sony Xperia ZL Camera: 13 MP or 11.5 MP?
So all the spec sheets say the ZL has a 13 megapixel camera sensor. However, when you go into the settings screen the max resolution you can select is “12 MP” in the 4:3 setting, as seen here in this screen shot:
If you do the math, even 12 MP turns out to be a generous marketing number:
3920 x 2940 = 11,524,800.
That’s 11.5 MP people. I’m not really complaining per say, I’m getting really nice pictures from the ZL. I’m just curious about how Sony’s marketing can go around stating 13 MP when their own settings screens say 12 MP.
