Ever since the first triple camera phone was launched, it looks like the competition has started among smartphone manufacturers: who’s gonna make a smartphone with more cameras? According to a recent report, LG is currently in the lead, at least in theory. The company is reportedly making a phone with 16 cameras. Not four, five, six or nine. Sixteen!
LG V40 Thinq is the first five-camera smartphone on the market
It was rumored that LG was about to launch a five-camera phone. And now it’s officially out: the LG V40 Thinq is the first smartphone on the market that features five cameras in total: three on the back and two on the front.
LG’s next flagship phone may have “only” five cameras
It doesn’t seem so long ago when dual camera technology appeared and brought a revolution to mobile photography. Then Huawei P20 Plus came, with its triple camera. It was only a matter of time when someone will try to add more cameras to a phone, and according to the latest rumors: it’s gonna be LG. Their next phone will reportedly have not two, not three, but five cameras squeezed into a single smartphone.
The future of mobile photography, and dual camera systems
Mobile photography has become more popular than anybody could’ve imagine over the last few years. Instagram receives 80+ million image uploads per day, and Facebook see an insane 300 million photo uploads every single day.
But the technology of a single tiny sensor and lens is starting to hit its limit. There’s only so far you can go given the physical limitations of such a device. So, let’s add a second camera.
