Something that has been rumored for some time now is a pair of attachable smartphone lenses from Sony, but only now do we have a conformation that the company will be announcing the devices, as despite Sony not officially announcing them, and ad for the QX10 and QX100 attachable lenses leaked earlier today.
Allowing the user to take better photos with their Xperia handset, as well as other Android and iOS devices (presumably), the lenses are controlled using the PlayMemories app and can be paired to a device using NFC.
Rumors suggest that the QX100 will ship with the same sensor used in the RX100 Mark II, whilst the QX10 will use a longer 10x zoom with a 1/2.3 inch 18 megapixel CMOS sensor.
Rumors suggest that both devices will share captured images over Wi-Fi, and will reportedly be available later this month from Sony’s online store.
Prices are suggested to be $250 for the QX10 and $450 for the QX100, however there’s nothing official yet.
You can expect to hear more at Sony’s announcement from IFA later today.
