Leica Leitz Phone 1

Not long ago, Sharp announced its Aquos R6, which was said to be "co-engineered" with Leica. Now we know why. The first Leica-branded phone, the Leitz Phone 1, is almost the exact same phone inside a different case. The flat ends and curved corners of the Leitz 1 mimic those found on the Q2, and the impressive camera — a 20-megapixel, 1-inch sensor fitted with a 19mm-equivalent f/1.9 lens — is hidden behind a giant bump that resembles a more substantial lens, so much so that the phone ships with a Leica lens cap. The camera app has also been given a Leica-infused overhaul. Otherwise, the specs are nearly identical, including the 6.6-inch, 2,730 x 1,260, 120Hz IGZO OLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage with microSD expansion, and IP68 dust/water resistance. The phone is available from Softbank in Japan; an international release is uncertain at this time.
