Light Is Developing A Phone With 9 Cameras To Launch In 2018

Light's multi-lens camera tech is coming to a phone

3 camera lenses? Psh, Light might be bringing 9 lenses to a new smartphone

16 cameras, as you may have already thought to yourself, does seem like a little too much, which is why Light's new smartphone (of which we have only a single image) comes with nine cameras, with 8 arranged in a circular format around the primary camera.

In fact, via a prototype phone picture shared with the Washington Post, Light shows the use of up to nine lenses on the back camera of a smartphone.

Yes, you read that right.

Person climbs Statue of Liberty after ICE protest, island evacuated
Liberty Island, crowded with visitors on the July 4th holiday, was evacuated as police responded and attempted to coax her down. History can repeat itself in good ways sometimes, like it did today, the Fourth of July, at the Statue of Liberty in NY .

The company informed that its phone configuration can capture 64-megapixel shots, deliver better performance in low-light along with sophisticated depth effects. The smartphone also has what the company called 5X hybrid zoom feature.

As Washington Post pointed out, it won't be anywhere near affordable, as the L16 multi-lens camera from Light.co costs more than $2000. Thanks to Foxconn's big investment in the small firm, the tech is going in a smartphone with nine cameras.

Multi-lens camera configurations have become a dominant trend in the smartphone space in recent years, with this year's Huawei P20 Pro raising the bar to triple-lens.

Earlier, we reported that Microsoft might be bringing foldable phones that offer support of upto five positions, including a position where both ends of the screen are facing each other, i.e. total inversion.

At least 10 lenses capture the same scene from slightly different angles, and these individual shots are then fused together to create an incredibly high-resolution 52MP still image. The camera uses sixteen lenses to capture 52 megapixel imagery. It is supposedly known that a holographic-ready screen is mounted on the phone and its camera could record in 2D, 3D and H4V.

Its L16 camera also lets you adjust the focal plane and depth of field after the image has been snapped.
