If the cameras have three and four lenses – we've seen in smartphones such as those with Huawei or Samsung – very much like, the new LG patent will surely get shares to chi. According to a new patent registered by a South Korea manufacturer in the US, the company has in mind and a phone that would incorporate in its back the incredible amount of sixteen cameras.

We spoke a bit back from the intensity in the race to embed as many lenses as possible in smartphones to make them more attractive to an audience than for many times look in the photographic section for the possible possible differences to choose between one terminal and another. In this context, there have been some rumors and leaks in recent months that refer to a Nokia phone with five lenses in its back camera, adding one to Samsung's Galaxy bet A9.

However, anyway, from nineteen to sixteen there is a good part. As better is not even better – see Pixel 3 with a unique back lens – the possibilities that such a component would provide to LG were significantly wider than those # 39 the competition Some of them, for luck our age for information, are detailed in the patent presented.

Expand its purpose

Although it is still a patent and has nothing to confirm about the future plans of the company to make a device with these features (the maximum technology is five lenses in LG V40 between the back and forth), some of the objectives that would attempt to comply with these sixteen lenses will be associated with take images in three dimensions and the following issue of elements the same, how to change the position of part of photo topics. Also improves existing systems such as enriching the data obtained by merger different photos of the same scene into one.

The problem that is intended to be resolved with this phone, as described by LG, is another except for "providing a terminal terminal and control tool for the terminal, where a user can produce Desirable synthetic moving image data using the plurality of images received through a camera provided with multiple lenses ".

It's a matter that the company would use a new camera module with her a square arrangement of 4×4 lenses that could also have some relief to give it a rotation. LG also refers repeatedly to the software that would incorporate the camera interface of this phone, which would be consistent with the complexity of its lenses and would have additional configurations to be able to implement a greater number of actions action.

Component, in short, would mean a new jump in photographic material for smartphones. We will probably not see a terminal with these features soon, but we could begin to appreciate the details of technologies that are associated with it in the next LG terminals.
