Panasonic today announced its impressive new Android-powered Lumix CM1 smartphone with a built-in 1-inch camera sensor and Leica lens. It’s the kind of sensor found inside dedicated point-and-shoots like Sony’s incredible RX100, and it’s going to deliver pictures you probably thought you’d never take on a smartphone.

One of the highlights of the LG G3 is that its impressive 13-megapixel camera has the ability to record super sharp 4K video, but it’s somewhat spoiled by LG’s aggressive post-processing. As is often the case, however, third-party developers have devised a tweak that makes 4K video recording even better.

It also boosts 1080p recording from 30 frames-per-second to 60 frames-per-second — but you’ll need root access to install it.

Samsung is already working to redefine high-definition tablets and put a 4K display in your rucksack. The South Korean company has this week been showing off a new tablet prototype with a super sharp 12-inch screen that’s enough to make a 1080p movie look like a VHS.

HTC has been trying to re-invent mobile cameras using its UltraPixel camera sensors in its flagship handsets. While the company’s effort has not been appreciated by all, it is definitely heading in the right direction.

Now, in an interview with Vodafone U.K., HTC’s camera expert, Symon Whitehorn, revealed some interesting tidbits about the future of UltraPixel and how the smartphone camera scene is going to change dramatically in the next 12-18 months.

Sony-Xperia-Z2

Sony appears to be having some teething troubles with its new Xperia Z2 flagship, which made its debut in Singapore last week. Not only is the device prone to overheating when recording 4K video, but cooling it down in a bowl of water could be fatal for those who received a defective device with gaps in its chassis.

Fortunately, Sony is already aware of both issues, and the Japanese promises it is investigating them.
