Leica Leitz Phone 3 unveiled: A Camera Phone with a 47MP Sensor

Leica has launched the third generation of its camera-centric smartphone, the Leitz Phone 3, exclusively in the Japanese market. While most 2024 flagships boast the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, the Leitz Phone 3 prioritizes superior image quality by opting for the still-powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

The phone’s true centerpiece is its exceptional camera system. It features a large, one-inch sensor with a staggering 47.2 megapixel resolution. This sensor is paired with a wide-angle lens boasting a bright F/1.9 aperture and a 19mm focal length.
