Images of Sony’s smartphone lens-cameras leak online

Alleged press images of Sony’s upcoming smartphone-attachable lens system that has its own built-in sensor and processor has appeared online.


Based from the leaked images, Sony will be showcasing not one, but two lens systems reportedly to be called the DSC-QX10 and the DSC-QX100. Both lenses have Bionz processors, WiFi and NFC connectivity, and its own SD card slot. These can be attached magnetically on your smartphone and are said to work on both Android and iOS devices.

The DSC-QX10 is the largest and more expensive of the two, and sports a 20.2 megapixel RX100MII sensor and Zeiss lens. The DSC-QX100 on the other hand carries a 1/2.3-inch 18 megapixel CMOS sensor with 10x optical zoom, similar to the Sony Cybershot DSC-WX150 digicam.



As for the image above, it’s also worth pointing out that we may be looking at the new Sony Xperia Honami i1 smartphone. Notice the new placement of the camera, LED flash and Xperia logo? What do you guys think?

Like every leak and unofficial releases, do take these with grains of salt. Next month, we’ll be flying off to Malaysia to cover Sony’s event which could be the unveiling of the Honami and the QX lenses so stay tuned for that.

    • Day Cody says:

      you are wrong, even gsmarena has its source,


      you need to read it first before judging, at least yugatech is up to date to the latest trends.

    • Xperianonimous says:

      even the source of the blog was copied
      tsk tsk

    • Justin says:

      @Xperianonimous: Bro, this isn’t a race. If someone else published it first… then, so what?!?

    • lilboyblue says:

      dude, they cater to their followers, not everyone has the luxury to browse all tech news sites.

      they cited the source, that’s that.

      Titi ba kayo? ang titi nyong lahat.

  2. roiji says:

    basically, yung phone yung power source (at processing) nung lens module?
    or yung phone will act as a view finder lang?

  3. Justin says:

    Looks like a Samsung S4 Zoom wanna-be.

  4. GadgetFanatic says:

    I like the concept but I feel that the price is too steep. Why would you want to spend $500 on this when you can purchase a DSLR hybrid (DSLR capabilities + size of Point and Shoot cameras) for just a little over that amount?

    However, if they lower the price to a more practical level, such as $300 then I’ll definitely buy one.

  5. abuzalzal says:

    SONY’s image processing engine is still LOUSY compared to PANASONIC, CANON or NIKON…so kahit ano pang technology introduce nila kulelat pa rin mga yan, ang alam lang nila gumawa ng sensor lol

    The image quality is still the deciding factor, not some cool/new eye-candy tech…

    • wew says:

      wow ah kung makapagsabe ng pangit ng image processing engine ng sony cameras kala mo dlsr owner tsktsk…anu ba pinagyayabang mo at nasasabi mong pangit ang sony?yang walang kwenta mong built-in rear camera sa crappy cherry mobile tablet mo??? —BITCH PLEASE

    • pau says:

      and that is where you are wrong.. some of the nikons have sony sensors.. do you know the rx100 ,rx1002 and the rx1? and the high iso capabilities of the nexes. mag stay ka na lang sa cp knowledge mo.. you clearly dont know anything about cameras.. damn even hasselblad is rebranding the nex 7 + rx100.. sa aps-c category ang kaya lang lumamang sa image quality ng sony ay fujifilm

    • abuzalzal says:

      Ay mga bobo

      Magkaiba po ang jPeg processing engine sa Sensor

      yung IMAGE Processor, home-brewed na yan ng Kumpanya, kung anong secret recipe nilalagay nila duyan sila lang nakaka alam…totally independent from the IMAGE SENSOR…kung SONY nag su supply ng SENSOR that doesn’t mean sila na rin nag susuply /calibrate ng IMAGE PROCESSOR

      two different things …mga vovo

      try to compare a similar APS-C sensors from SONY and Nikon at different ISO’s .. mas Superior pa rin ang NIKON, since SONY sensor din ang Nikon, ibang teknik ang ginagamit nila sa jpeg processing

      VOVO kayo hahaha

    • aha says:

      @abuzalzal if u call them fool then what does that make you, ? ur as foolish as they are the way u speak, sick of all these filthy comments.

      just sayin.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Eh mga bobo naman talaga sila eh, tapos babanat pa ng ”clearly don’t know anything about cameras” lol

      Sensor lang at jPeg / image processing engine akala nila iisa lmao

      SONY isnn’t known for their savvy image processing technology, they are always left behind… DSLR Sales figures speak for itself

      They have the lousiest lens choices, lousiest AF tracking technology and lousiest metering system

    • alpha says:

      You know nothing about Sony. In terms of photography, sila ang nagrerevolutionize ngayon. Walang takot sa paginnovate. And they have impressive JPEGS on RX100 RX100m2 RX1 and RX1R.
      Magtingin ka sa feedback ng mga tao sa Amazon saka ka magpost ng katangahan mo dito.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Amazon reviews are nothing but robotic comments made by paid shills

      I’d rather go to a trusted site like DPREVIEW

      Just so you know

      OH…And SONY sucks

    • alexis says:


      even sa DPREVIEW, they praise RX100 RX100m2 RX1 and RX1R. So Sony still sucks?

      guys wag nyo na patulan to, low end brands lang kaya nya. hindi nya afford ang sony

    • Pau says:

      Compare mo high Iso ng D7100 at d7000 vs the 2011 nex 5n sa dpreview comparison tool :) nuffsaid

    • wew says:


  6. wew says:

    if i would be choosing bet this and samsung galaxy s4 zoom,ill choose this one…you can have a camera with phone capabilities at the same time the compactness and slimness of a phone(if taken out) =)

  7. Jorge says:

    Good idea but on the portability, I think its the same as carrying a camera? So what if I have a good phone and a good point and shoot to bring. They still serve the same purpose.

    • wew says:

      this device is made to be more compact than the conventional cameras pero not to the point na kasing compact ng smartphones,if you’re not really into super high-quality photos, then just be contented to your built-in camera in your phone or if you want a better camera,go for lumia 1020 =)

    Mga pips naman ditow masyadow kung makapuna sa mga comments pati grammar di pinapalampas. kayo na mga perpekto. at iba naman kung makapagreply sa posts na ‘ewan at medyo stupid’ parang kaaway na lahat, may galit sa mundo? LOL. kayo na! basta ako chill lang.

  10. A cardiovascular workout that will have you punching and kicking your way to
    a high-intensity workout for your whole body. Several of the name brand businesses such as Nike,
    Adidas, Ryka and others create superb shoes or athletic shoes at cost-effective prices.

    I physically suggest this workout program for anybody who has temptation
    in order to change their life.
