Coming back to Cyber-shot lenses, these are world's first interchangeable lenses for Android and iOS smartphones. These lens cameras are basically lenses with select camera features, which work with Android and iOS smartphones to provide high-end compact camera quality images without the need to carry the full camera.

According to the leaked press release, these Cyber-shot lens cameras can be easily connected using WiFi to smartphones, converting the phone's screen into a real-time viewfinder. Using Sony's PlayMemories Mobile app, users can release the shutter, start/stop movie recordings, and adjust common photographic settings like shooting mode, zoom, Auto Focus and more on these lens cameras.
