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

The phone is rumoured to have eight lenses arranged in a circle around a central lens, according to the Washington Post. The Washington Post says that it has seen working prototypes of phones from Light that have anywhere from five to nine lenses in 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 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. The smartphone also has what the company called 5X hybrid zoom feature.

Light took the point-and-shoot to the next level and designed their camera to take photos with DSLR-level quality and it was quite the journey, considering it all started as a crowd-funding project back in 2015.

The huge victory sends England to the quarters for the first time since 2006, but it did not come easy at all. Eric Dier converted the game-winning kick to advance. "It is the team which makes the difference".

In case having one camera on your smartphone is not satisfactory, this company is bringing you a phone equipped with five to nine cameras. And true to the firm's reputation, the device will reportedly be equipped with more cameras than you can imagine.

A Light L16 multi-aperture computational camera, a CES 2018 Innovation Awards victor, is displayed at CES Unveiled Las Vegas, a press preview event before the start of CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 7, 2018. With a smartphone, which has around nine camera sensors, the software will have to stitch all these images together to form that one high-resolution image. So even if Light does launch its smartphone with the fancy camera features, you might not be able to afford it.
