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.
