This is likely one of those future-proofing things that we often see manufacturers put into their hardware. Like the 2TB microSD card limit on many Android smartphones, even though 1TB cards were only just recently announced and aren’t quite available yet. But Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 670, 675, 710, 845 and 855 models all seem to support a somewhat insane 192-megapixel camera sensor.
Apple isn’t set to release a triple camera phone until late next year when they update their flagship iPhone X model. Android users, however, may start to see it coming much sooner. And not just in flagships, either, but in mid-range devices. According to a leaked spec sheet posted to Suggest Phone for Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 700 series chips shows triple camera support.
