HTC One M8 may have started a trend: more smartphones with dual-lens cameras expected this year (not from Samsung, though)
According to DigiTimes, other important smartphone vendors are expected to introduce handsets with dual-lens camera modules. Reportedly, the information comes from the president of Altek - the Taiwanese company that supplies dual-lens modules for HTC. It’s said that Huawei and Lenovo may launch smartphones with twin rear cameras as soon as this quarter. Other “international smartphone vendors” may start doing it next year, though DigiTimes was quick to note that Samsung and Apple aren’t included among those.
As some of you may know, the second camera lens that’s found on the back of the HTC One M8 collects depth of field info. This allows users to play with the resulting photos by changing the focus, or adding various effects (at any time). In case you want to know more about the Duo camera that’s featured on the One M8, take a look at our explanation of it here.
Naturally, other companies that may be using this camera setup will probably not rely on the UltraPixel technology found on the One M8 (since this is HTC’s proprietary tech).
What do you think? Is it a good idea for other smartphone vendors to adopt dual-lens rear cameras?
