Sony takes a back seat when we discuss hot trends but taking a look at its flagship phones, it’s not hard to bring its name up on the list of manufacturers with best Android phones. Suffice it to say, some of its phones have left a good impression on us as well. Sony of not participating in the hot trends and adopting its culture may soon become a thing of the past, well if we believe the latest tip coming from one of the reliable leakers.
Max J. on Twitter who usually posts things related Samsung has now shared an interesting tidbit about Sony’s upcoming phone. According to the tip, Sony is working on a new Xperia smartphone that features six camera lenses on its rear and two cameras on the front, thus a total of 8 cameras. The leaker further says the device is still in the development, so specifications and other features are unknown.
This also means that Sony’s Xperia phone with six rear cameras will surpass Nokia 9 Pureview that came with penta-lens cameras, all arranged to make up a hexagonal shape. There’s no other information available that could help us in imagining the placement of Sony’s unnamed phone’s cameras. But the leaker has shared a concept image in which the cameras are placed vertically; there are two parallel lines of cameras, consisting of three cameras in each line.
For comparison, the Nokia 9 PureView has two color cameras and three monochrome cameras. The device takes one shot from each of its five 12MP cameras and then stitches them together into one super high-res picture. And, it takes some time in doing so, which is disappointing. The device did grab some eyeballs due to so many cameras but it couldn’t manage to flatter in the camera department.
We can’t comment how Sony would make use of these alleged six cameras but the company is one of the pioneers in the lens industry and we do believe it will come up with something interesting.
The tip does bring a stir in the tech world which is filled with news of other phones carrying multiple cameras. We are eager to know more about this device.
