Many photographers would be in favor of ditching their main camera in favor of a sophisticated camera phone, if image quality and creative possibilities wouldn’t have to suffer. Well, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has taken this dream a step closer to reality in teasing its 12S Ultra Concept which allows the use of interchangeable Leica M-series lenses. 

Although it’s a concept phone, it has been shared via Chinese networking site, Weibo, and on sites including YouTube and Twitter by Xiaomi themselves, so we know it’s the real deal. Very exciting indeed!
