Fujifilm X100V Could Come With A Brand New Lens

We had recently heard a rumor that the Fujifilm X100F successor, potentially known as the X100V or X200, will only be arriving in 2020. We are pretty excited for it given how good the X100 series has been, and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, it seems that there are more reasons to be excited for the camera.

This is because according to the publication’s sources, they have been told that the camera will come with a new lens. Why is this a big deal? For years, the X100 series comes with a 23mm f/2.0 fixed lens. In a way, this is what makes the camera so appealing because a 23mm lens is actually a pretty decent general purpose lens, where it’s not too wide or not too zoomed, making it idea for a walkaround lens.

However, the good news is that according to a report from XDA Developers, they have discovered that in Android Q, it will come with APIs that will let third-party apps record audio from other apps.
