LG patents a phone with 16 cameras and the software to use the cameras. The company is set to manufacture a smartphone with 16 rear cameras. The company envisions a 4 x 4 array of cameras arranged at an angle (making the array concave or convex. That is, they will not lie flat at the back). This way each camera sees the scene from a different angle.
In past, we’ve seen Huawei Mate 20 Pro has three cameras and Samsung’s Galaxy S10 is rumoured to have six, but LG is about to change the game with 16 cameras making Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Galaxy S10 looks like a child play.
According to US patent 10,135,963, which was awarded on Nov. 20, the South Korean company might be working on a camera with as many as 16 lenses. However, this is not the first time the company has produced smartphone with multiple cameras. The company has once produced the LG V40 ThinQ, a smartphone with 5 Cameras.
Moreover, in a bid to use the 16 cameras for selfie shots, LG suggests placing a mirror near the camera. This cameras would be connected to a mirror that’d allow you to take selfies with those, since the front camera wouldn’t produce images of the same quality.
