After some rumors, guesses, and predictions, Samsung Galaxy S10 has finally been officially announced. Just like most smartphones nowadays, it seems aimed at photographers (or “phoneographers”) and Instagram users. The new flagship phone features three rear cameras that take ultra-wide photos, it has a dedicated “Instagram photo mode,” and a few other features to help you make the best of your phone snapshots.
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.
Samsung has introduced a variable aperture in mobile photography and put a triple camera setup in a mid-range phone. The company is soon launching the next flagship model Galaxy S10, and the camera specs have just leaked. A few sources have confirmed that S10 will have a triple rear camera, so this setup is not reserved for the recently launched A7 only. Reportedly, there will also be an S10+ model which will pack five cameras in total: three on the back and two on the front.
A few months back, there were some hints that Android users may see triple camera setup even in mid-range devices. And with the launch of Samsung Galaxy A7, it looks this is coming true. The A7 is Samsung’s first triple camera phone, and it packs pretty decent photography features into an otherwise average phone.
If someone told me fifteen years ago that smartphone cameras would be able to capture the Milky Way, I’d probably just scoff. However, smartphones have come a long way, and photographer Daniel Cheong used his Huawei P20 Pro to shoot a pretty epic photo of our galaxy. He shared some details with DIYP and told us how he shot and edited this photo.
Not long ago, Huawei launched P20 Pro, the first smartphone with a triple camera (all three with optical image stabilization). For now, it’s also the only option, and in case you’re an iPhone user, you’ll need to wait for a setup like this for a while. According to the latest reports, Apple will be launching a triple-camera iPhone – but it won’t happen before the second half of 2019.
Just like they announced earlier this year, Huawei has launched P20 Pro: the world’s first smartphone with three rear cameras co-developed with Leica. The triple-cam technology brings you 40 MP images and 5x hybrid (optical and digital) zoom. It has caused quite a hype among phone photographers and it has earned whopping 109 points at DxO. So let’s dive in and see what this new phone camera technology has to offer.
