Leica Debuts Its First-Ever Smartphone With The 20.2MP Leitz Phone 1

Leica makes some of the best cameras in the world, and in recent years, the brand has branched out by incorporating their lens technology into various smartphones. It seemed like it was only a matter of time before Leica released a smartphone of their own, and now that day has arrived with the reveal of the Leica Leitz Phone 1.

The Leica Leitz Phone 1 shares its base with the Sharp Aquos R6 — one of the aforementioned other smartphones equipped with a Leica camera system — but it’s been updated with Leica’s distinctive design language. The Leica Red Dot logo is of course present, and there’s even an optional branded lens cap available from Leica. As expected, the camera is the star here, as it boasts a massive 1-inch 20.2 MP sensor, a gorgeous large-diameter f/1.9 Summicron lens with a 19mm wide-angle focal length, and a “Leitz Looks” mode that enables monochrome photography. The phone will be sold exclusively through SoftBank in Japan beginning in July, and you can learn more by checking out their website.
