JS Liang, Altek vice president and head of R&D said, “The challenge facing Altek’s design team was how to integrate a fully functioning 14-megapixal camera with 3x optical lens while maintaining Leo’s smart phone form factor. An optical lens requires precision moving parts and mechanisms that ensure the device functions properly, but it also has to be attractive and easy to use. We achieved this without compromising Leo’s look and feel.”
