If you are familiar with digital cameras at all, you will probably recognize the Lumix brand as Panasonic’s line of popular digital cameras that are sold all around the world. Panasonic is set to offer up its first Lumix branded mobile phone, which means the device will be focused on taking very nice pictures in addition to making calls.
For now, what we know is that the phone will have a touchscreen, integrated flash, a 13MP image sensor and more. The touchscreen will be used to view photos, and as is the case with most touchscreen cams today it would be a safe bet that the screen will also provide touch to focus and other features.
The camera will have a microSD card slot for storage and will be DLNA capable. A wireless LAN access point will be optional and the camera will feature a special “Mobile VenusEngine” for quality photos – whatever that means.
Full details on the first Lumix phone should turn up on October 5 according to Panasonic. Guess we’ll just have to wait until next week for more details on it.
