Hi @Nially. Can you provide a bit more information please? Tell me exactly the steps you're taking to see this.

I open the camera. In settings i check its at 12mp. Then back at camera which is showing what the camera is pointed at fills 2/3 of the screen but when i click the full screen button it expands out but if i click settings its back at 7mp.

i would think that the ''full'' view is cropped on the sensor to a 18.5:9 raito which is much wider than the sensors native size. as a result the cropped image outputs at 7mp as the only usable area on the sensor would be a 7mp 18.5:9 cropped area.
