Smartphone cameras have a limitation and it is practically impossible to offer different features using a single sensor. To overcome these limitations smartphone manufacturers came up with dual camera setups with multiple combinations like the secondary camera just for depth sensing or a wide angle lens, a monochrome sensor and even one with a telephoto lens.
Recently Huawei went a step ahead and launched a phone with triple camera setup. Huawei P20 Pro has been hailed as the best mobile camera ever. It beat the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Google Pixel 2 XL.
Industry experts like DxOMark lab feel that phones with triple cameras will be a norm as early as next year. Since multiple sensors give manufacturers advantage and flexibility to offer better solutions to the users, manufacturers are opting this solution. Major flagships like iPhone X Plus or Samsung Galaxy S10 featuring triple camera setup may be a reality soon.
DxOMark’s Marketing VP Nicolas Touchard, in an interview to Android Headlines, has suggested that the day when will we see smartphones with Quadruple-camera is not far off. He says that it is “not a question of “if” but “when”.
Mr. Touchard feels that having multiple sensors is the easiest way to bypass the hardware limitations, offer better image quality and superior zoom. As per him once the flagships like iPhone X plus and Galaxy S10 come out with these sensors, the industry will follow suit.
Even Google is said to be implementing dual cameras on its upcoming Pixel series. Even though the company had only relied on single camera for the last two iterations of its phones while dual camera setup had become a norm
