Three lenses on a smartphone? How about nine instead?

Three lenses on a smartphone? How about nine instead?

It remains to be seen how these nine or five lens systems will be implemented and whether the smartphone's camera will deliver on the result, given it will require the kind of processor which can support such high quality image processing. For those who do not know the brand, Light is a for-profit company focused on revolutionizing the photo industry. The L16 is nothing to turn one's nose up at dismissively.

The L16 camera works by using multiple lens at once to capture an image, each at different focal lengths, combining all the data together to create a single 52-megapixel photo.

US-based digital photography company and camera-maker Light is prototyping a smartphone with five to nine cameras that could be capable of capturing a 64MP image, the media reported. Light's 9-camera phone prototype may also have a hefty price tag when it releases. The L16 rings in at $1,950 United States dollars. Well, you're about to get a case of phone-camera-envy anyway. Now, according to the latest news from Washington Post, Light is developing a smartphone with 9 cameras.

Apple and Samsung already have a version of this design, only using merely two lenses on the phones. The L16 camera also has other features, such as portrait mode effects and 5x optical zoom. Still, the million dollar question is whether consumers will pay so much for a phone with as many as nine lenses when there are a number of phones that take great pictures now for much less than what a Light smartphone will probably cost.

The device is not much thicker than an iPhone X.

. Tech Crunch has stated that they have reached out to Light for more information, though no news has been returned as of yet.
