The DMC-CM10 as it turns out is not a smartphone that we’ve been told yesterday, instead, it’s the camera only version of DMC-CM1 which only means that the device is missing the telephony functions.
The imaging-centric Lumix DMC-CM1 from Panasonic will have its successor introduce tomorrow at CP+ photography and imaging trade show in Japan. The new CMD-CM10 will be the next top grade smartphone-camera hybrid from the Japanese firm and as always will include high-end components with Leica lenses to take charge on imaging.
The new smartphone device follows the same market group that the original Lumix-branded smartphone has done businesses. Up front, the Lumix DMC-CM10 features a full-faced camera interface with a fully featured manual focusing lens and a f/2.8 aperture. One thing that is commonly noticeable about this line of device is that is carries an LED flash, it would have been a perfect point and shoot smartphone camera device if only they featured xenon together with LED.
If the images above hold its claim then the new DMC-CM10 handset should be featuring the same design and probably hardware features. The back is a full screen smartphone display with telephony functions making it as one of the distinctively unique devices in the market. Panasonic haven’t revealed anything yet, but as they will introduce the new handset tomorrow, expect new information of the handset by tomorrow.
