Leitz Phone 1 with technologies from the German company Leica.

Leica has repeatedly signed up to work with smartphone manufacturers in the past. However, it never supplied them with its own technologies. The subject of cooperation, such as with the Chinese Huawei, was mainly the correction and “fine-tuning” of the resulting photographs. Only these days is the smartphone coming to market, which is the first to have technologies from Leica, Germany. The Leitz Phone 1 has a huge 1-inch sensor that promises SLR-like outputs in itself.

So far, the smartphone is intended only for the Japanese market, but it is possible that it will also go overseas. The phone is equipped with a powerful Snapdragon 888 processor, a 6.6-inch OLED display with a frequency of up to 240 Hz, 12 GB of operating memory and 256 storage memories. The mobile phone is powered by the latest Android 11 with a Leica-style interface. Below the display is an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.

On the front there is a 12.6 Megapixel selfie camera, on the back there is a main camera with 20 Megapixels. It may seem small to some, but it has long been the case that high-quality Megapixels are responsible for quality photos. The one-inch sensor, which hides behind a wide-angle lens with an f / 1.9 aperture, is the largest of all smartphones on the market. Paradoxically, the manufacturer made no compromises and forgot about the optical zoom, which would affect the resulting image due to additional optical elements. You can only zoom in on subjects using digital zoom. Also interesting is the stylish magnetic lens cover with the Leica logo, which is to protect the lens from scratches.

Leitz Phone 1 is not cheap. After all, no one even expects this from the Leica brand. Its price on the Japanese market is 1450 euros.
