Now, smartphone to have 9 cameras?

Light is working on a 9 camera lens smartphone that could launch this year. In this
With many flagships now featuring two lenses on the back, or three, in the case of Huawei's P20 Pro, it looks as if we'll see a smartphone with between five and nine cameras sometime this year.
The phone is rumoured to have eight lenses arranged in a circle around a central lens, according to the Washington Post. The objective of the second lens for these smartphones is to help with zooming and to measure the depth of field, giving users the ability to create blurred backgrounds during the shot. "It's truly pocketable. Yet in the end, consumers want the convenience of a phone with the power of a dedicated camera", TechCrunch reported.
The concept design shown to the Post reporter is capable of combining all of the images to take 64-megapixel photos, with superior low-light performance and better depth effects. Rumours have claimed that Apple could introduce a similar triple lens system on its iPhone series in 2019.
It's not clear whether Light aspires to be the next big smartphone company, or if it's simply betting that its notional multi-camera smartphone's unique selling proposition lures enough customers to make a profit. Although 16 lenses may seem excessive, the camera is able to capture multiple pictures simultaneously at different depths and focal lengths. While these prototype smartphones have a fewer number of lenses - and will thus likely be less expensive than the L16 - you probably won't be buying one of these future Light smartphones for less than a grand. Dropping the lens count to something like nine might help reduce costs, but not by much.
Why so many cameras? The L16 rings in at $1,950 Dollars.
