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

It would make sense for each lens to have its own unique function, similar to how the triple lens on the Huawei P20 Pro works, and such lenses may include a monochrome lens, a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. Although 16 lenses may seem excessive, the camera is able to capture multiple pictures simultaneously at different depths and focal lengths.

The Washington Post reports that it has seen working prototypes of the Light smartphone that have between 5 and 9 lenses on the back. Light is reportedly claiming that the massive sensor line-up will offer 64MP photos, great depth effects and improved low light performance. And the most distinguishing feature is that it has up to nine camera lenses on the back. "It's truly pocketable. Yet in the end, consumers want the convenience of a phone with the power of a dedicated camera", TechCrunch reported.

It's been a few years since we've heard from Light, the camera company that made headlines with the L16, a point-and-shoot sized camera featuring a whopping 16 lenses, allowing it to capture DSLR-quality images. It's now working on a smartphone. And true to the firm's reputation, the device will reportedly be equipped with more cameras than you can imagine. The camera then uses algorithms to combine them into one high-resolution image.

As flagship phones like the Galaxy S10 and 2019 iPhone are rumored to adopt three rear cameras, who's to say that four (or nine) camera setups aren't on the way? The other important thing to keep in mind is that the device won't be cheap, with the L16 camera priced at $1,950.
