The Japan electronics trade show Ceatec will be happening next week and Panasonic has made an announcement in anticipation. The company will be unveiling its new Lumix Phone brand--camera phones that bear the Lumix digital camera name.
According to its press release, the new phone will employ the new Mobile VenusEngine for image processing and comes with digital zoom capability. Its other specs include:
- 13.2-megapixel CMOS sensor
- 3.3-inch VGA LCD
- Approximately 4.5 inches by 2 inches by less than an inch/5 ounces
- microSDHC card support
A teaser site has gone live at lumixphone.jp, though not much more information can currently be found there. We do not know if this is for Japan only, though it's not unusual for electronics companies there to co-brand their mobile phones with technologies from their other products. Some examples include the Sony Bravia and Sharp Aquos mobile phones.
