The Canon EOS 1 Smartphone, Powered by Android … and Sprinkled With Fairy Dust

eossmart1

From the looks of a recent rumor over on Canon Rumors, we might soon see a Canon branded smartphone. While there’s no information on what cell phone manufacturer they’re working with, it’s safe to say with Canon entering the market, this device may become the smartphone camera to beat.

What is that, you say? Look at the calendar? Oh

Well, that would explain this monstrosity. It looks like someone got an early start on the April Fools jokes. However, if you’re still hoping this is a reality, here are some more imaginary specs for you, provided to Canon Rumors by a tipster:

  • Android KitKat 4.4
  • 8-core 64bit Snapdragon 615 with 8 ARM Cortex A53 inside
  • 8Gb RAM
  • 64Gb memory
  • CPS, Bluetooth and WiFi.

And some additional specs for the double lens camera that this most epic of smartphones boasts:

  • First camera: 1-inch sensor 12.2×8.8mm 20MP (Sony?) 35mm equivalent lens
  • Second camera: 1/1.7-inch sensor 10MP with 3x Liquid Zoom Lens, which has liquid optical elements that change zoom range by piezoelectricity.

This one came early, but be sure to check back tomorrow for our annual April Fools Roundup. We’ll fish out the juiciest, most creative, most believable and most unbelievable of the photo-related April 1st offerings and bring all of them to you in one place.

    Specs of a supercomputer :)

    The dual lens design is a direct cut and paste from the Kodak v705, and poorly done at that.

  • Zlatty

    8GB of RAM on a 32-bit device is laughable. 55% of that RAM cannot be utilized. The photoshopers/april-foolers should have tried harder.

  • Mike

    Well this one sounds too plain to be a joke. Also looks…weird.

  • Ryan.Love095

    Not that I think it is real but the cpu spec is 64bit, so in theory it’d be fine with that much RAM. Still not even close to real though, 8GB is serious overkill for a phone.

  • Gus Martinez

    I liked the left handed 7D joke better.

  • nikkome

    Looks so… 2002 from a parallel universe!

    It looks like it has a 3″ screen.

    Shut up and take my money

  • Raghavendra Kopalle

    Hmmm lets count… first came the 550D… then the 600D… then comes 650D and now lo & behold, here comes the 1200D!!! We are being fooled with ‘real’ products for years by canon, every new release is an April 1 day for us :P

  • Ridgecity

    It even has CPS!!

  • JonathonWatkins

    I’d buy dat. :-)

  • Binoy Mishra

    It HAS to be a joke.. no one in their right mind will design a phone that is so ugly..

  • SeoulFood

    “8-core 64bit Snapdragon 615 with 8 ARM Cortex A53 inside”
    Android 4.4 is also 64 bit.
    What’s the problem?

  • canonbot

    Me like

  • miike

    damn, why so ugly design…

  • Gatot Jaka Timur

    hahaha.. it’s too much hi spec for a beginner phone player. just look at nokia who just started selling android. they don’t have superb spec phone, they start with the low end first. that’s why it’s a fake.

    April fool. Photoshoped from a Tag Heuer smartphone image. Where is my prize ? ;-)

  • Marcus Manchester

    It’s a slick looking device, if it was real. I would love to see a camera on a smartphone that isn’t Windows Phone powered (I have no desire to buy a Nokia for that reason)

  • Jake

    Fairy dust is going to get all over the sensor and ruin it!

  • Nyo

    First camera: 1-inch sensor 12.2×8.8mm 20MP (Sony?)

    Are you kidding? Canon phone with Sony Lens? Lets call it SONY phone. Some idiots wrote this one.

    As pointed out by another individual…
    This is essentially a hybrid of this and a Casio G’Zone phone.

  • the truth hurts
