The alleged listing spotted by Engadget seems to have been removed by Sony. The tech blog claims the QX1 E-Mount interchangeable lens-style camera was listed (pictured above) with a 20.1-megapixel APS-C sensor at a price of $399.
Notably, this price was without an accompanying kit lens – Engadget speculates that Sony will include a 16-50mm lens. The report speculates that the Sony QX1 lens-style camera should start shipping on October 9.
On Tuesday, the QX1 smartphone attachable interchangeable lens-style camera with E-Mount was leaked in press images (pictured below) along with Sony Xperia Z3. While the report didn’t feature any specifications for both the devices, it speculated that QX1 lens-style camera will use an Exmor APS-C sensor and ‘some kind of pop-up flash.’
Last year at IFA, Sony had unveiled the Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 lens-style cameras, which were later launched in India at Rs. 24,990 and Rs. 12,990 respectively.
So far, Sony is rumoured to launch three smartphones, two wearables, and a tablet at IFA 2014. Along with the previously rumoured Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact devices, a new report on Monday tipped Sony to launch the SmartWatch 3 and SmartBand Talk wearables at IFA 2014, alongside a budget smartphone offering dubbed Xperia E3 that is expected to retail between $200 (approximately Rs. 12,000) and $300 (approximately Rs. 18,000).
The Japanese giant has also released an official video teaser last week with numerous hints, followed by a teaser image on Sunday, suggesting water-resistance in at least one of the devices it will introduced at IFA, supporting immersion up to 2 metres.
