Those who like a camera phone to pack some serious specs will be very pleased to hear of Casio’s upcoming release of the Exilim CA003, featuring a 12.2MP camera with autofocus and a 28mm wide angle lens with 3X optical zoom.

Joining the likes of Samsung’s Pixon12, with its impressive megapixel count, the Exilim CA003’s camera also has a 20fps “burst mode” enabling the capture of multiple pictures per second. The phone boasts a 3.3” WVGA OLED screen as well as GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FM radio. It supports microSDHC cards up to 16GB and will be available in four fashion colors including “champagne gold”.

A slightly pared back model, the CA004 is also in the works and, while very similar, will offer an 8MP camera and 3.1” screen. No word has been given on price; however a Japanese release is expected in the coming months.
