Following up last year’s Leica Leitz Phone 1 is the aptly named sequel – the Leitz Phone 2. The new device shares its key hardware with the Sharp Aquos R7 but it offers a more robust design with textured metal sides, Leitz branding and a metal cap for the rear camera.
There’s a 6.6-inch IGZO OLED screen with 2730 x 1260 px resolution, a 240Hz refresh rate up front, and a 16MP selfie camera housed in a punch hole cutout. The back has the same 47MP main camera with a 1” sized sensor. The Sharp and Leica co-developed sensor brings a seven-element Leica Summicron lens, an F/1.9 aperture and a 19mm focal length. You also get a 1.9MP portrait sensor. The rest of the specs include a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, 12GB RAM and 512GB storage and a 5,000 mAh battery.
Leica Leitz Phone 2 comes in a single Leica white color and is scheduled to go on sale in Japan from November 18, 2022. Pricing is set at JPY 225,360 which is roughly $1,540.

Ah, I read the article wrong, it shares key hardware with the R7, not Leitz Phone 1, so on paper at least it has quite some extra resolution compared to the 1st generation. If its 47.2MP is effective, as in regular bayer, then at this sensor size it ...
That's not really considered a professional use case... And I didn't say to throw out the 19 equiv. in the case of this smartphone, just to add a 50, because a 19 is too limiting, and there should be some form of upgrade.
