One of the most specc'd-out cameraphones set to land in the UK on December 1 due to high demand


Do you remember the Panasonic DMC-CM1 cameraphone, the compelling concoction between an Android handset and a point-and-shoot camera? Announced two months ago, this device blurred the lines between smartphones and handheld cameras even more - with its extremely-large 1-inch 20MP sensor (the very same sensor can be found across some Panasonic cameras, such as the DMC-FZ1000) and a Leica DC Elmarit lens with an aperture of f/2.8, the DMC-CM1 is certainly a zinger in the camera department (on paper, that is). Full manual control of the camera, high ISO light sensitivity range (ISO 100-25,600), and 4K video recording have also been thrown in the mix. 

As far as its smartphone specs are concerned, the Panasonic DMC-CM1 sports a 4.7-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 SoC, churning the gears of the handset at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, a microSD card slots (those pictures surely take up a lot of space), and Android 4.4.4 KitKat right out of the box.   

Well, it seems that Panasonic has been faced against more demand than it had initially expected. As a result, the maker of the intriguing cameraphone will release a limited amount of the DMC-CM1 on British soil in order to catch up with the desires of its potential customers. The compelling device has already been launched in Germany and France, but it will be available in the UK from December 1. Provided that you are a potential adopter, you can get the device from several brick and mortar retailers.

The pricing has not been announced yet, but it is suspected that the DMC-CM1's price tag in the UK will be similar to the ones across France and Germany - €899, which is roughly $1,115.
