Back during MWC 2016 in February, Samsung showcased a really interesting accessory for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The Lens Cover basically is a protective case for the flagship devices that also come with lens attachments to enhance your camera experience.
One of the lenses is a wide angle one while the other is a telephoto one. Both these lenses can be screwed onto the case for a perfect fit and offer really high quality optics. The build quality and image quality is also really good and much better than any such adapters or lenses we’ve seen so far on smartphones. The video below gives our first impressions of the two lenses.
The lens cover is available for both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and also comes with a protective cover and 2 lenses in the bundle. At a price of 149.99 Euros or US$ 172 (Around Rs 11,000), the accessory is definitely pricey. But considering that you are getting not one but two really high quality opticals lenses, the price could be justified to a certain extent especially if you are someone who does some serious photography with your smartphone.
We also hope that Samsung would keep the thread size the same and that in the future, users could potentially just buy the back cover and use the same lenses for future products as well. Hopefully, these attachments make its way to Indian shores in the near future as well.
