Apparently, OnePlus isn't the only one aiming for that distinction and Sharp's next premium phone might also bear Leica's name, though perhaps in an odd way.

Insta360 ONE R is a modular action cam with interchangeable lens mods

Insta360 ONE R is a modular action cam with interchangeable lens mods

360-degree videos have become fashionable these days, even without the virtual reality factor, because of how they enable recording everything for manual editing and cutting later. Due to size constraints, sensors in most 360 cameras are often less than what you could get if there was only one sensor pointing in one direction. This forces consumers to make an upfront choice about what to buy or what to use for a specific occasion. What if you didn't have to choose? What if you could have all of those and switch between them at a moment's notice like you would switch lenses on a regular camera? That is exactly what Insta360 is promising with the Insta360 ONE R, delivering a 360-degree lens, a 4K wide-angle lens, and a 1-inch Wide-Angle sensor all in one bundle.
