Leica, one of the renowned camera maker companies, has entered the smartphone industry with its first smartphone sporting a 1-inch camera sensor. This can be a huge differentiator when it comes to low-light photography, better dynamic range, and high-quality images as compared to smaller sensors in other smartphones.
The Leitz Phone 1 packs in a 20-megapixel 1-inch sensor with 19mm equivalent focal length. It has a hole-punch display with a 12.6-megapixel selfie sensor, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC powers the phone. The Leitz Phone 1, named after Leica's original brand, shares a similar design language with its iconic cameras, and it comes complete with a Leica Red Dot plus a magnetic circular lens cap for added protection.
The Leitz Phone 1 has been priced at JPY 187,920 in Japan. The phone will be available in a single Leica Silver color option. The phone will go on sale in Japan sometime in July. The Leica Leitz Phone 1 runs on Android 11 and featuring a 6.6-inch UXGA + (2,730x1,260 pixels) OLED display. The phone comes with 12GB RAM. The internal storage on the phone is 256GB, with an option to increase the storage via a microSD card slot (up to 1TB).
The smartphone packs in a 5,000mAh battery and comes with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Connectivity options include USB Type-C port, Wi-Fi 802.11 ax, Bluetooth v5.2, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Face Unlock.
