Engadget just reported that Nokia has launched the Lumia 1020 with 41 megapixel camera, and that it has 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with a camera launched this year.
A. and that it has 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with a camera
Use of AND conveys the meaning that Engadget did 2 different things, but this is not the intended meaning of the sentence. In fact Engadget did only 1 thing. Thus Incorrect. I won't say that "IT" is ambiguous coz logically neither a company nor a brand name can have pixels.

B. and it has 20 million more pixels when compared to any other smartphone’s camera
Use of AND conveys the meaning that Engadget did 2 different things, but this is not the intended meaning of the sentence. In fact Engadget did only 1 thing. "Use of "WHEN" is incorrect. Such use means that Lumia has more pixels ONLY when we compare it to other smartphones. If we don't compare then it doesn't have more pixels. Thus Incorrect. I won't say that "IT" is ambiguous coz logically neither a company nor a brand name can have pixels.

C. having 20 million more pixels than any other camera in any other smartphone
Use of Comma before HAVING is incorrect because it would mean that "Having....smartphone" is modifying the entire clause rather than the camera. Moreover, there is no need to use "Any other". Thus Incorrect

D. a camera that has 20 million more pixels than a camera in any other smartphone
CORRECT

E. a camera with 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with camera
This option is incorrect as it compare a camera to a smartphone.

I'd go with D as comparison is correct - Camera of Nokia to that of other smartphone.

Look forward to more 700+ from you Shradhha!

Very nice question. My answer is D for reasons stated below

A. and that it has 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with a camera --> Two issues: Seems parallel with "Nokia has launched the Lumia 1" and hence does not modify camera. More pixel than any other smartphone is wrong comparison
B. and it has 20 million more pixels when compared to any other smartphone’s camera --> More cannot be used with "compared to".
C. having 20 million more pixels than any other camera in any other smartphone --> verb-ing modifies the preceding clause whereas we need to modify only the camera.
D. a camera that has 20 million more pixels than a camera in any other smartphone --> Correct
E. a camera with 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with camera --> Compares camera with any other smart phone

A - it- has no clear antecedent, if it was suppose to be refer to the camera the sentence make a comparison between the camera and any other smartphone.
B- it- again with no clear antecedent and lack of parallel with no "that" at the beginning. when should refer to a time phrase only.
C- having - modifier that break the sentence , it refer to the whole clause instead of a noun - camera.
D- correct .
E- comparison between camera and any other smartphone.

nice one! it's good to read something fresh,High tech cellphone, instead some biologic and boring story.

But if you see, even a phone can have pixels, not just the camera in the phone. Resolution of phone is given in pixels. So even though I chose the correct answer, I was detained by this fact for several seconds.

A. and that it has 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with a camera
"and" here suggests that both the ideas are independent. "it has 20 million...." is modifying camera, and therefore it is best conveyed using a noun modifier. therefore this is incorrect.
B. and it has 20 million more pixels when compared to any other smartphone’s camera
same as A
C. having 20 million more pixels than any other camera in any other smartphone
this construction should modify the previous clause but is modifying the previous noun. therefore this is incorrect.
D. a camera that has 20 million more pixels than a camera in any other smartphone
noun + noun modifier is employed to modify camera, a noun in the previous clause. this is correct.
E. a camera with 20 million more pixels than any other smartphone with camera
a camera is compared with another smartphone. therefore this is incorrect.
