Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 price for US, pre-order now
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 has been available for some buyers since late last year. Now the hybrid smartphone/camera device is finally coming to US buyers, which should please those who have been patiently waiting. Read on for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 price for the US, and no doubt some will be pleased to learn that this is available to pre-order now.
The Lumix DMC-CM1 arrived for sale for those in the UK back in December, so potential buyers in the US have had a pretty long wait. The device can now be ordered with an unlocked price of $999.99. Some may wonder whether this cameraphone is more of a smartphone or a camera, but it really leans towards those more interested in photography than the handset.
That said the handset specs of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 are decent enough. It has a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, Adreno 330 graphics, 4.7-inch display with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, 2GB of RAM, and16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD to 128GB). It has a 2600 mAh battery and runs the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, now upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Camera-wise there’s a 20-megapixel unit featuring a 1-inch sensor, 28mm f/2.8 Leica lens, and 4K video capture, as well as a 1.1-megapixel front-facing snapper. You can find pre-orders for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 at B&H or Adorama who both have it at the same $999.99 price tag. B&H doesn’t show an expected date of availability and simply says it’s coming soon. However, Adorama gives an expected availability date of June 25.
