Panasonic just announced what has turned out to be one of the biggest products on day one here at Photokina 2014: the new CM1 "smart camera." The world's first smartphone with a 1-inch sensor, it runs Android 4.4 and is equipped with a 10.2mm f/2.8 Leica-branded lens.

We had a chance to get some hands-on time with the new camera/phone hybrid at Panasonic's booth, and made sure to snap some shots for your viewing pleasure.
