The company that really seems to be stealing the show at Photokina 2014 is Panasonic. Today, the company made a surprise announcement that they’re getting back into the cell phone game–sort of. The new CM1 is an Android smartphone with a 10.2mmm f2.8 Leica lens that comes out to an approximately 28mm field of view. Plus said lens has full manual control over aperture, ISO and shutter speed. But beyond that, the company has packed a 1 inch sensor into the camera.

The camera phone can also capture 4k video. And according to their specs page, it runs Android 4.4, has four processors with 2.3 GHz, and a 4.7 inch display. The sample images are also beautiful.

A demo video is after the jump.
