With newer technologies coming out for the mobile phone industry, it could be that dual-camera smartphones might become the next big thing. Technology has been very kind to the handset sector and developers, as well as manufacturers, are constantly on the verge of creating something new. With dual-cameras (either at the front or rear areas of a smartphone), it may even promote to an even better trend, such as increasing the height of the 3D craze.
Dual-Camera Smartphones May Pave the Way for the Future of Mobile Technology
There have been numerous takes on creating dual-camera smartphones but it is just recently when the idea caught attention. The latest take on this technology craze builds on the work that many small startups had, such as one called Corephotonics. Instead of using 3D technology (which can be gimmicky), the two optics found at the rear of the smartphone will be able to deliver features which include a smooth optical equivalent. This can be done with the use of moving parts, which would otherwise be apparent on a lot of camera lenses, especially with regards to zooming or changing apertures. The other benefit that is said when using two rear cameras is the vast improvement that will be seen when it comes to low-light shooting.
Also, it also turns out that a form of this dual-camera technology is imminent, more specifically speaking that of the leaked images of the soon-to-be-released Huawei P9 smartphone. The leaked pictures showed that the phone will have two rear cameras. Other than Huawei’s next flagship phone, there are also recurring rumors that Apple’s next smartphone, what could be the iPhone 7, will also have twin rear optics.
There are several configurations in which the dual-camera setup can be portrayed. One of the most widely cited is wherein a fixed-focus telephoto camera will be side-by-side with a more common smartphone wide-angle camera. When users take photos simultaneously, a carefully engineered algorithm will take place to create better, more detailed images. Furthermore, smartphone cameras will have better zoom capabilities rather than using a digital zoom feature that will create pixelated images.
Furthermore, there are other advantages to using dual-camera smartphones. Aside from the obvious resolution boost, shutterbugs will be able to notice an increase in high-dynamic range performance. Therefore, colors will appear more vibrant and better saturated. Also, the photos will come out more accurately exposed, even when under low-light conditions.
