The future of smartphone cameras… The Dual Camera Setup!
This year will be a plethora of smartphones sporting a dual camera setup. This will be the future of mobile photography. LG and Huawei were the first to incorporate a dual camera system on their smartphones early this year and before the end of the 3rd quarter, iPhone 7 Plus and Note 7 will also have the same feature as rumored in most technology websites. For Note lovers (like me), Samsung was rumored to be skipping Note 6 to align its flagship Note phablet to its S model.
What is a dual camera setup and what are its benefits?
A dual camera setup incorporates two prime lenses at the back of your phone. One lens will usually have a monochrome sensor and the other lens, a color sensor, which can capture three to five times the light of a single setup camera. The result, better sharpness and clarity even in dark conditions. It is rumored that Note 7 will have a whooping 1.4 aperture for its dual camera setup.
The battle for mobile photography is now afoot!
