DxO Detachable Smartphone Camera is Finally Showing Up for Android

December 4, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Android users have been long waiting for the arrival of the detachable camera from DxO. The wait now appears to be cut-short as DxO has finally decided to make its camera available, although not officially.

The DxO smartphone camera for Android will be launched through an early access program run by the company through which users can grab the camera for $499 after signing up. It’s the same price-tag as that of the one for iOS, and for that price, you will get a USB-C version of the DxO One detachable camera.

Design wise, it resembles the same camera that was revealed by DxO a few months back for Android but sans the USB-C support.  The Early Access pack will also include a rugged Outdoor Shell access to DxO’s PhotoLab software.

The Android version of the camera is also likely to feature almost all the features available for the iOS version of DxO. The missing ones will be introduced at a later stage through future updates, and those include features like time lapse and support for Facebook Live broadcasts.

The only downside is that not all users will be able to have the camera paired with their smartphones. That’s because DxO has listed only a few devices that have been put under the compatibility list.

Those are HTC U11, Huawei Mate 9, Huawei P10, LG G9, LG V20, Moto Z, Nexus 5X, Nokia 8, Nubia Z11 mini, Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Huawei Honor 9. Users can submit other devices through a field in the website, but it’s not sure when the camera will get optimized for the same.
