Camera-maker Light is bringing nine lenses to a smartphone

Now, the Washington Post reports that Light is bringing the same technology to smartphones.

The company that makes the unique Light L16 camera, named after the number of lenses dotted on the back, is turning its attention to smartphones, the Washington Post reports. And the company claims its design can capture 64-megapixel shots, can take better photos in low light and offers advanced depth effects.

In our first look earlier this year, James Laird wrote: "Taken all together, the Light L16 proposes an enticing combination of DSLR-esque image quality, CSC-like portability, and the ease of use reminiscent of smartphone cameras".

Light is working on a 9 camera lens smartphone that could launch this year. Or maybe you went all out and got the Huawei P20 Pro with three cameras. Light is now developing the phone and it has also created a prototype with 5 to 9 lens with incredible zoom capabilities. Besides having an investor like Foxconn, Light also is familiar with Android since the open source OS drives the L16 camera. Dropping the lens count to something like nine might help reduce costs, but not by much.

Users of this potential phone would have the power of a dedicated camera rolled up into the convenience of their smartphone, all while being able to fit snugly inside anyone's pocket. And true to the firm's reputation, the device will reportedly be equipped with more cameras than you can imagine. With a smartphone, which has around nine camera sensors, the software will have to stitch all these images together to form that one high-resolution image. And these features are what we expect to see in the upcoming smartphone with 9 cameras.
