Smartphones with two main cameras became a real trend with the release of the iPhone 7 Plus in 2016. However, Apple was not the first to launch such a device, and LG, along with its Optimus 3D, outpaced it by 5 years.
On the one hand, in 2011 the two main cameras looked like a breakthrough. On the other hand, with the help of them, LG wanted to popularize shooting in 3D mode, which no one needed. As a result, the device did not become massive.
Despite this and many other defeats, LG engineers did not despair and continued to work on three-dimensional cameras. Its result in the near future may be a smartphone for 16 cameras, which the company has already managed to patent.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]On November 20, 2018, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued LG a document enshrining for the company the idea of using a 16-camera module in a smartphone, with which it could create three-dimensional photos.[/perfectpullquote]
Another feature of the future device may also be a special mirror . It will be located under the camera module and will help you to take ordinary or three-dimensional selfies on any or all of the lenses at once.
How to treat this innovation, we have not yet decided. Nevertheless, today the matrix of 16 main cameras causes only a smile. [ GizChina ]
