Canon to release its first smartphone, EOS Smart 1

Canon has been mum about whether or not they’ll enter the smartphone market, but apparently the renowned camera maker has been secretly working on the EOS Smart 1 all along; a powerful handset that can potentially blow all its contemporaries out of the water.

According to the leak specs handed over to Canon Rumors, the Canon EOS Smart 1 packs a serious power under the hood courtesy of 64-bit Octa-core processor (Snapdragon 615, 8x Cortex-A53 procs) and 8GB of RAM. Yes, that’s right 8GB RAM, top that first-tier handset makers!


Of course, being known as camera maker, Canon isn’t just going to give their first handset some run-of-the-mill optics. The tipster claims that the EOS Smart 1 will sport two cameras on the back; a 20MP with 1-inch sensor, as well as a 10MP snapper with 1/1.7-inch sensor and 3x Liquid Zoom Lens.

All of these components are encased in a shock-proof chassis with high-grade rubber and carbon fiber reinforcements which give the handset a premium, yet durable design.

Canon Rumors’ tipster didn’t mention when the EOS Smart 1 will be available to the public or how much this bad boy is going to cost. If you’re interested to see the other features of this handset, just head on over to this link.
