Quad cameras (4 cameras) smartphones sound crazy but may be amazing

Posted by

We are expecting quad cameras (yes; four cameras) on upcoming smartphones from Samsung and Lenovo. We may even see a Nokia-branded smartphone with five cameras.

Crazy stuff. How did we get here? Let’s see…

We started with dual snappers, and they were cool. We have seen scores of smartphones equipped with dual cameras since then. Then we got a triple camera from Huawei, the Huawei P20 Pro, followed by one from Samsung, A7 2018.

We are also expecting triple cameras on the upcoming LG V40 ThinQ.

But we should have known that the trend wouldn’t stop with three. It is getting ridiculous, to be honest. But why stop at three when you can have four or five? You see, we are now expecting to see the Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro and Lenovo Z5 Pro arrive with quad cameras, and we may even see a Nokia-branded smartphone with five cameras.

Unbelievable stuff.

What Will Quad Cameras Be Capable Of?

So, how will these new quad shooters work? What will we be able to do with four cameras on our smartphones?

The Huawei P20 Pro’s triple cameras feature a main camera, a monochrome sensor for depth, and a tele-photo lens for optical image stabilization. No-one knows for sure what the four cameras setup will be on the upcoming phones.

But we can expect lossless optical zoom, sharper images, better Bokeh effects, and better low-light photography. Huawei pulled it off excellently with triple cameras on the P20 Pro. Hopefully, the new generation of cameras with four lenses will bring amazing photography.

As for five cameras on a phone…cough! Cough!! I don’t know. That just sounds too busy. Maybe it is just me. Still, bring it on! Show us what you’ve got.

  1. Think it’s overkill.. Samsung and iPhone of old did wonders with a single camera, even pixel. Think they need to focus on pixelation, lens size and software optimization.

  2. For example, using a redmi 5 plus.. front camera is 5mp, and was previously atrocious. But with software upgrade n software rendered portrait mode, selfie be looking world class now..
