According to a report by Sony Alpha Rumors, Sony is getting close to releasing a smartphone accessory that would mount directly onto the device.

The attachment will make use of NFC or Wi-Fi to transfer the images to the smartphone, allowing users to get super high quality images directly on their smartphone. If Sony manages to cram a great sensor behind a Carl Zeiss lens, budding photographers around the world will likely pick it up in droves to take better Instagram pictures of their food. Or, you know, better pictures of awesome things.
