The A51 will be fitted with camera lens from South Korean supplier Kolen to allow extreme close-ups of objects such as flowers and insects. Previously, users had to purchase special lens for such photos.
In addition to the 5 million pixel close-up lens, the phone will also sport a 48 million pixel basic camera, a 12 million pixel optical range camera and a 5 million pixel depth-of-field camera – courtesy of Camsys.
