Batman/Fortnite comic series wraps up with free Armored Batman Zero skin

The final issue in DC Comics’ limited Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic book series has finally arrived. As with the past five issues, you can redeem a free cosmetic in the battle royale game, but there’s an extra perk on top of it: fans who purchased all six issues can also redeem the Armored Batman Zero skin for free.

The six-issue Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic book series tells the story of Batman after he’s sucked into the Fortnite universe. The limited series has something for fans of both universes, offering a new Batman storyline while also shedding light on aspects of Fortnite‘s Zero Point plot.

The sixth and final issue in the limited comic book series was released on July 6; it includes the Batarang Axe pickaxe as a free item that can be redeemed in the battle royale game. The release coincides with the arrival of Armored Batman Zero in the game’s Item Shop, which can be purchased using V-Bucks.

Assuming you’ve acquired all six issues through DC Universe Infinite or you’ve purchased all six print issues, you’ll receive this same Armored Batman Zero skin for free. In order to get the skin, you’ll need to have redeemed codes from all six comic book issues under the same Epic/Fortnite account.

Overall, the comic book series has offered a nice collection of free items for fans who purchase them, including the Rebirth Harley Quinn skin, Batman Zero Wing Glider, Catwoman’s Grappling Claw Pickaxe, Harley Quinn’s Revenge Back Bling, and the Deathstroke Destroyer Glider. All six issues are available now.

Leica Leitz Phone 1 wraps a hefty 20MP 1-inch camera in familiar design

Leica has revealed a new smartphone, with the Leitz Phone 1 promising a hefty sensor for photography along with 5G capabilities. Although the camera company has co-branded smartphone cameras before now, the Leica Leitz Phone 1 takes a fairly atypical approach.

Where it’s common to find three or four sensors on most recent smartphones, regardless of price point, Leica’s handset takes a more focused approach. It has a single rear sensor, in fact, packing 20-megapixels.

What makes the difference is the sensor’s physical size: a full 1 inch, which is far larger than the primary camera on just about every other device out there. It has an f/1.9 ultra-wide, 19mm-equivalent lens, too. If you’ve been keeping track of recent photo-focused smartphone launches, that might sound familiar.

Indeed, Sharp announced its Aquos R6 back in May, and the 1-inch Summicron camera and lens system tallies with this Leica-branded phone. The big sensor is primarily being positioned as a foolproof way to get more light, of course, just as you’d expect from a regular camera. However there’ll also be what Leica is calling “Leitz Looks,” which are basically things like monochrome modes to edit images.

Unsurprisingly then, there’s a 12.6-megapixel selfie camera on the front of the Leitz Phone 1 as well. There’s also a 6.6-inch IGZO OLED screen with a 240Hz variable refresh rate, to trim motion blur, running at 2,730 x 1,260 resolution. An ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is under the display.

Also inside is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 5G chipset running Android 11, paired with 12GB of memory and 256GB of storage. There’s a microSD slot compatible with up to 1TB cards as well. In addition to 5G there’s WiFi 802.11ax and Bluetooth 5.2; a 5,000 mAh battery rounds out the key specs, and the whole thing is finished in an IP68 glass and metal shell.

What distinguishes the two phones – Sharp-branded and Leica-branded – really is the aesthetic. That’s an important factor in the photography world, where Leica’s cameras are known for their distinctive red dot. For the Leitz Phone 1, there’ll even be a special branded soft-case, and a Leica lens-cap to protect the sensor.

Softbank will be offering the Leica Leitz Phone 1 as an exclusive in Japan, priced at 187,920 yen ($1,714), and right now there’s no apparent plan to launch it outside of the country.
