From year to year we see the following situation: every new generation of smartphones gets some kind of new things. But more often than not, this translates into an increase in the number of cameras and sensors. Samsung’s new patent tells us about a new “record” – six cameras in a smartphone.
The South Korean giant filed an application in December 2019 at the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office). And on June 11 it was published. In addition to the number of cameras, it is worth paying attention to the tilting design of the sensors, that is, the matrices will tilt and change their position, similar to how tilt-shift lenses do it.
According to the patent, the Samsung smartphone will receive five wide-angle sensors with a focal length of 28 mm (equiv.), As well as a telephoto lens. Most likely, the lenses will be located horizontally in three pieces in two rows. In normal mode, they will “look” only forward, but in active mode, they will be able to move left, right, up and down.
Thus, it will be possible to achieve a wider viewing angle without using ultra-wide-angle optics. It will be possible to take panoramic pictures and make the effect of panoramic bokeh. Also, due to the fact that five lenses and sensors will work together, we can expect an increase in image quality and increase resolution.
There are also BUTs, the first of which is the high cost of technology. At the same time, in addition to the advantages indicated above, one can expect an improvement in night shots, an increase and expansion of the dynamic range, and an improvement in the quality of background blur.
As a technological and geek product, this can be a very interesting smartphone. However, it is worth recalling the Nokia 9 PureView with five different sensors and lenses with the same focal length. The product never entered the market and its mass sales did not begin. Despite the fact that at the time of the announcement, Nokia showed really impressive pictures, test samples worked slowly and the result was not always pleasing. By the way, Light, with which Nokia created this product, officially left the game and is no longer engaged in the development of mobile cameras.
