Okay, there are several A12+IMX117 devices available now, but they can't offer:
1. 90-degree non-distortion lens version.
2. Stereo/mono mic-in connector using standard miniUSB port.
3. Quick shooting modes.
4. Dedicated playback button.
5. Memory card slot located on the back side.
6. Selfie-mirror on the front.

I think anything up very close to 90 degree lenses can even look distorted. That is my experience with 90 degree lenses from my keychain camera.
