Last October, Yongnuo teased the impending launch of a 16-megapixel Android-based mirrorless camera it called the YN450. Since then, not much has been heard about the device, but Yongnuo made an appearance at CP+ and brought along the unreleased device to show off in more detail.

In the video above, Cinema5D takes a closer look at the unreleased device to see just what Yongnuo has managed to pack inside the YN450 and what their goal is with the unique device.

The camera uses a 4/3 sensor and relies on a Canon EF mount for lenses. It's powered by Android 7.1, features an 8-core Qualcomm processor and includes a 5-inch 1080p multi-touch display. The secret weapon, however, is an integrated 4G SIM card slot that will ensure the camera is as connected as a smartphone would be, with Wi-Fi and GPS to boot.

Based on the current information available, the camera will have 32GB of internal memory as well as a MicroSD card slot. However, Cinema5D believes that slot could be limited to 32GB cards and won't support SDXC cards.

In addition to 16MP stills, the camera will shoot 4K/30p video, but details on the codec and other information are still unannounced. There's also a front-facing 8MP camera that's hidden next to the display. The device will feature a removable 4,00 mAh battery that's said to power the camera for up to 4 hours of continuous use.
