Smartphone manufacturers are taking advantage of this trend. One strategy they use is to increase the number of cameras on the device.

According to a popular Android newswebsiteIt is reported that LG's next smartphone (temporarily named V40) will be equipped with three cameras on the back instead of one or two. Including the front camera module, this device will carry a total of 5 cameras. At the front end, at least one camera will be used for facial recognition and biometric recognition. On the back, you'll have a standard wide-angle lens, a special wide-angle lens, and a third lens of unknown use—perhaps a zoom lens or a lens that specifically provides a specific depth of field or bokeh effect. According to reports, most of the other features of the phone, such as the screen design with "bangs", will be the same as the previous generation, or incremental upgrades compared to previous generations. This means that the phone's rear camera is likely to be one of its main selling points.


A mobile phone with five cameras like that is not a new concept. Listed this springHuaweiThe P20 Pro also has three rear cameras. It is positioned as an alternative to photographers' cheaper than high-end dedicated cameras, and its camera system is designed in collaboration with German lens and camera manufacturer Leica. Huawei's mobile phone - and LG's upcoming mobile phone - based on Apple's 2016 launchiPhoneThe dual-camera system popularized by 7 Plus. The back of the iPhone 7 Plus has a standard 28mm wide-angle lens and a 56mm equivalent portrait lens with 2x optical zoom. It didn't take long before it became the industry standard: there are now dozens of smartphones with dual rear camera systems, including the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, OnePlus 6 and LG V30. But the multi-camera system is still a high-end product, not so common. Many mobile phones, such as the iPhone 8, still have only one camera on the back.

However, the trend of multiple rear cameras is quite interesting, not only because these systems provide finer images and a wider range of photography. This advanced smartphone camera was not feasible a few years ago, at least not easy to do now. Thanks to advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence, smartphone camera software quickly and intelligently optimizes photo settings based on the environment you're shooting, whether it's low-light, wide-angle, distant scenes, or close-up shots. Such a handset can use two cameras simultaneously as needed without the need for the user to switch between different modes or to adjust complex camera settings menus. This is not to say that these phones do not offer such settings: the iPhone's portrait mode can be enabled to take and shoot portraits, highlighting the subject's face, not her background. The P20 Pro also has a night mode that gives you up to 6 seconds of exposure time to take pictures, eliminating the need for a tripod.

Although multi-lens smartphone cameras have emerged in 2011, thanks to the advancement of artificial intelligence, the increasingly miniaturized camera modules, and the ever-increasing size of ordinary smartphones, it has become a comprehensive trend. The three cameras may sound a bit exaggerated, but as camera functions become one of the most important features of mobile phones, this is a natural evolution. The third lens not only optimizes the detail, zoom or photo position of the photo, but can also be used for third-party lenses.AccessoriesSpecial effects reserved to provide users with new ways to capture beautiful memories. At present, it is not easy to say that the P20 Pro and LG are said to be releasing the mobile phone's three-camera system will become the new favorite of avid photography enthusiasts, or will develop into a new industry standard. But if there is any inspiration from the popularity of the dual camera system, then the three camera system is bound to begin to appear more and more.
