Panasonic has announced the Lumix CM1, a smartphone with 4K camera capabilities.
Writes RedShark News, “Of course, these days, there are at least a handful of smartphones that feature some variant of 4K video recording. The Lumix CM1 distances itself from the competition by packing a 1-inch sensor that produces 20 megapixel photos and 4K recording (more on this in a second).
