When it comes to smartphone photography, we’ve seen plenty of manufacturers create all sorts of accessories, such as lens attachments, flash units, camera cases, and more. Companies like Sony and Olympus have tried to take it one step further with the QX-series and Olympus Air lens attachments, but safe to say neither has really caught on.
However it seems that the folks at DxO think they might have found a solution. According to Photo Rumors, it seems that the company has plans of announcing a smartphone accessory called the DxO ONE and as you can see in the image above, this is a camera attachment for the iPhone where it will plug into the Lightning port of the phone.
The announcement is said to be pegged for tomorrow but photos of the device and its alleged specs have since been leaked. According to the leaked specs, the DxO ONE will feature a 1-inch 20.2MP CMOS BSI sensor. It will be able to record Full HD videos at 30fps, 720p HD at 120fps, and will have a 11.9mm lens which is roughly 32mm in full frame. It also sports a rather wide aperture at f/1.8 which should aid in low-light photography.
It will have a battery life that apparently is good for around 200 photos and an ISO range of 100 to 51,200. It will also be compatible with all iOS devices that have a Lightning port, save for the first-gen iPad mini. It is expected to be priced at $599.
