Surely at this point you will not know Light , but the truth is that this, has brought us the curious news of the week in that Incessant search for the future of smartphones .
We already know that artificial intelligence and the virtual and augmented realities will be part of that future as key technologies, although in a market like this the future is always far away and it is the present that needs new things like eating .
Innovation in telephony has stagnated a bit, and with Photography as a differentiating element , together with the frontal optimization and alternatives to ‘Notch’ , some manufacturers are already playing with multi-camera systems and even with devices that hide them to avoid the dreaded notch at the top of the screen:
Hello,? Hello,? Hello,?
Light already thinks of smartphones with up to 9 cameras … Are these Romans crazy?
Huawei is not the only manufacturer that wants smartphones with up to four sensors , three of them in the back, because HTC has also mounted four sensors, two front and two behind, in itsand there is even talk of LG could be working with two cameras in front and three behind for your next onethat should already be on the design tables.
Be that as it may, all these approaches to the future of mobile photography have seen them Light, who up the ante with a prototype that mounts 9 cameras in the back , each with different parameters and configurations.
A system inherited from its modulewith 16 sensors, which allows you to take the same picture at the same time different focal or angular distances , for example, to play afterwards with the processed from image.
The company founded by Dave Grannan and Dr. Rajiv Laroia relies on a more than interesting technology, which already has received funding even from Google Ventures and that it can shoot shots of up to 64 megapixels, to star in the future of advanced photography on smartphones, and in its first tests are experimenting with prototypes of between 5 and 9 sensors like the one you see in the header image.
However, packaging 9 photographic sensors in the back of a commercial phone seems today a chimera, and no one knows for sure what sacrifices would have to be made in terms of space for the battery and other components.
What is clear is that Huawei has found a reef with the triple camera that the market is not willing to let go, and Light says that their systems offer a better performance in low light plus advanced depth effects , even after making and recording the shot from a photo editor.
The sources say that Light wants to present his phone with Android operating system later this year, implementing a photographic system derived from the Light L16 camera. So, it is possible that in 2018 we will see many more cameras adorning the backs of our favorite phones … Are you ready?
