Sony’s Rumored Smartphone 'Lens Camera' Leaked in Early Press Photo

A press photo for Sony's rumored camera attachment for Apple and Android devices has been leaked. According to SonyAlphaRumors, the Sony DSC-QX10 (pictured below) and DSC-QX100 "lens cameras" feature a "built-in sensor, Bionz processor, WiFi/NFC wireless connection and a SD card slot." Users will be able to control the lens cameras directly from their smartphone or tablet via WiFi or NFC, or use it as a separate device.

Sony is expected to announce two models at its IFA press conference on September 4th. One will feature a RX100MII sensor and Carl Zeiss lens, and the other will be equipped with a 10x zoom lens with 18MP CMOS sensor.

No pricing has been announced, but SonyAlphaRumors points to the $748 price tag of the Sony Cyber-shot camera that features the same RX100MII sensor and Zeiss lens. That's a pricey iPhone accessory, but this is something we have never seen before.
