Assuming those early leaked shots of an HTC device running a 12MP camera are accurate, one feature that was right in front of our eyes but we missed: Save Settings.

Last we checked, there are no current Windows Phone that allow camera settings to be saved, much to the frustration of many users. And while the beta developer tools allow the flash-settings to be saved, implying the rest can be too (they're not available in the emulator), this is the first hard proof that yes, once again, the Windows Phone team is eagerly paying attention to our wants and needs.

To be honest, we're not really surprised that this is there. After all, Microsoft so far has given us almost everything we ask for, given enough time. Still, it's nice to know it's coming this fall (fingers crossed).

Update: Tech writer Manan Kakkar has this to say on the matter, referencing the VIP Mango event last week: "...was told at the event that OEMs will have choice, default will be what we have now."

Thanks, Robby Light, in comments for pointing this out
