Two makes a trend – LG can follow Huawei's Triple Camera Territory «Smartphones :: Gadget Hacks



It looks like the Huawei P20 Pro is no longer the only phone with a triple camera. Rumor has it that the upcoming LG V40 ThinQ will have the same number of cameras. And as with dual cameras, LG shows that there are several ways to arrange them.

With the Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei has extended its existing dual-camera setup with a third sensor. Most Huawei and Honor devices used an RGB and a monochrome array, so it only made sense to use that as the basis of the triple camera and improve it with a telephoto lens. Take advantage of the details of the 40 MP RGB lens and the sharpness of the 20 MP monochrome lens, and combine it with the 3x optical zoom of the telephoto lens.

For LG they took similar steps. For years, LG's flagships have been known to use a main lens with a super wide-angle lens so their customers can incorporate more objects into each photo. The V40 ThinQ shows rumors that the super wide-angle (or "ultra-wide") will return with a "super telephoto lens". It looks as if the telephoto lens offers a 3x optical zoom and offers the same lossless zoom function as the P20 Pro.

Image from MrMobile / YouTube [19659006] According to ETNews there will be a 20 MP, 16 MP and 13 MP sensor, but no information has been given which camera was which. Our best guess is that the 20 MP will be the primary shooter, the 16 MP will be the ultrawide lens (which may be the same 16 MP ultrawide in the V30 and G7 ThinQ), which will leave 13 MP for the telephoto lens.

However, LG has not stopped there to set new trends. There are rumored to be 3D facial scans. This feature would be a first for Android devices officially available to the US market, and the way LG achieves this is also new. Instead of using an infrared camera to create a map of your face (like the iPhone X, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Oppo Find X), they will use two front-facing cameras. Whether it is as accurate as Face ID, or even can be used at night, one can not guess, but at least LG tries something different.

This is not the first time that LG joins the party. The LG G6 was the first QuadHD + display with an 18: 9 aspect ratio that drove the trend toward larger displays last year. When LG joins the party on triple rear view cameras, it looks like we can officially say we have a trend. Perhaps more importantly, the LG V40 will be the first taste of this new setup in the US, as the Huawei P20 Pro could not make it to the US.

Well, the LG V40 ThinQ brings triple cameras to Americans, other OEMs might be pressured to adopt a similar setup. Hopefully the cost will fall on OEMs and, eventually, midrange devices using the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 or 700 SoC. Are you looking forward to the triple camera trend?
