After we saw the Going all over the box and for the first time incorporating three different photo sensors on the back of its P20 Pro, each with its own personal strengths and combined workability that would be better than its parts - it was clear that this trend would not stop here, but would continue to evolve rapidly with more and more elements Opticals that promise us smart operation for unparalleled quality.

Reports of possible triple camera arrays at some other major smartphone manufacturers have already begun to circulate on the network, but now it seems that some are preparing for the day after tomorrow - with an array of up to nine cameras (!) In the back of the smartphone. This may sound like a joke, but there seems to be a prototype already in progress Which realizes this.

This is what Light's first commercial product looks like - with a $ 1,950 price tag and divisive comments about the quality and capabilities received for that price

A young American company called Light, which received investment from the Chinese giant Foxxon and Alphabet's investment arm (Google's parent company), launched a digital camera last year called L16, which relies on 16 photo sensors and small lenses to create large, advanced images - and according to the Washington Post launch Based on a similar concept even before the end of this year, with five to nine cameras on one side of it.

Opened a Pandora's box that would bring the entire market into a new technological spin?

The use of a large number of different lenses could enable much better noise filtering for the final product obtained, Better in challenging lighting conditions with certain sensors that focus on achieving the darkest details in the frame, performing high quality digital zoom with minimal amount of distortion and loss of quality, creating advanced bokeh and macro effects and more - when it will naturally take some time for this technology to mature and stand up Fulfill all the promises, and most of the time, you will become a cab enough to do so at competitive prices.

With a lot of (very) cameras - this is what it looks like in the prototype phase

The future is definitely on the horizon, but not quite here yet - Light's smartphone is likely to carry a price tag of more than 1,000 dollars when launched, and as of now we still don't know what available hardware to know to support its technology. We hope to get more information as soon as possible.
