Panasonic has just created a stir in smartphone photography with the announcement of the Lumix CM1, a camera-centric Android smartphone packing a huge 1-inch sensor. That’s by far the largest sensor on any cameraphone. By way of comparison, the Lumia 1020 has a 0.67-inch sensor while Samsung’s K zoom has a 0.4-inch sensor.
Here are other details about the Lumix CM1:
- 20 megapixel images
- f2.8 28mm Leica DC lens
- full manual controls
- dedicated shutter-release button
- 16GB of internal storage + microSD card slot
- 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
- 2GB of RAM
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- 4.7-inch full HD display
- 2600 mAh battery
Microsoft’s Lumia and Samsung’s Zoom series have a new competitor, and it has got a big gun.
