honestly, i thought it'd actually be more expensive. maybe not the most top-tier specs, but night vision camera, premium build quality, nice design and it's a Danish company. Denmark is quite expensive by comparison afaik. so i guess it's a nice thing to have for people with some extra money on their hands who want something unusual
vrvly, 03 Jun 2016IR led is pretty cheap, so is flashlight. Its mainly used to see/capture animals in night. You... moreoh i didnt know this, guess i was wrong i thought seeing it implemented in smartphones would be costlier
AnonD-472910, 03 Jun 2016if this camera could some how keep the details of the nightvision and have another camera that... moreIR led is pretty cheap, so is flashlight. Its mainly used to see/capture animals in night. You can shoot B&W photos or just use white flash after focusing using IR, so you can take color pic before startling object with focus light. It may be even the tech note7 will use, well it may be in note just to focus though.
if this camera could some how keep the details of the nightvision and have another camera that can capture good low light colour this would be amazing but if it were so easy maybe everyone would do it
as for the pricing it is super justified there is no way this technology could be cheap its the only smartphone with this tech which means no bulk or mass production to keep the cost down
IR light as add-on to phone is enough, why go through trouble to buy expensive phone with 2 back cameras and just use lower res one? Every camera can see IR light. I see it just as cheap mid-range.
AnonD-226698, 03 Jun 2016At 4MP resolution not too good to sell to TMZ hahahahahaIf I understand it correctly. it's a dual camera setup. 13 Main+4 NightVision. and frontie 5.
Nice phone. Really stands out from the sea of Galaxys and cheap Chinese phones.
G4M3R, 03 Jun 2016Helio x10 probably? But almost everybody would have expected a SD820 for device this expensiveP10 or X10, yea. Everybody wants an 820 but a lot don't take realistic views on it. If it is one of those 2 chips, that's perfect. Same with the 4.8" 720p. All it needs is a 3000mAh (or more) battery and I'm pretty much sold on it.
Samsung and Apple are jealous of this nighrvision i guess. f1.7 of samsung still won't match this night vision unless they copy it mabye in 2030 because of MONEY! Take what you can samsung and apple and give us cheap phones back!
AnonD-480815, 03 Jun 2016Yeah, totally a phone made for the paparazziAt 4MP resolution not too good to sell to TMZ hahahahaha
Gibby, 03 Jun 2016Night vision shots - great - complete and utterly useless to anyone (other than stalkers!)Yeah, totally a phone made for the paparazzi
RC255, 03 Jun 2016The 2.2 8core cpu is more than likely a Mediatek variant, not a bad thing anymore. I say this ... moreHelio x10 probably?

I wonder what the quality would be if you want to record or snap photos at the night sky.
Definitely interesting device even though it might have MediTek wich I'm not a fan of.
Frankly I'm very close to buying it but it's the first time I've heard about this brand. And I'm a phoneachoolic.
That CAT S60 impressed me a lot too. Why don't they make high end phones like this?
I've been dreaming about an IR & thermal camera phone for a long time.
