Lenovo teases quadruple-camera smartphone, but it could be misleading us again

Lenovo teases quadruple-camera smartphone, but it could be misleading us again
Earlier this year, Huawei’s P20 Pro debuted as the first smartphone with three rear cameras. But as many of you may know, the Galaxy A9s is expected to take things a step further on October 11 with four rear sensors. According to one new teaser, though, it seems Samsung is not alone.

The image in question comes courtesy of Lenovo’s Vice President Chang Cheng and depicts a square-shaped camera module complete with four rear cameras. In fact, it bears a striking resemblance to the setup included on the upcoming Mate 20 series, albeit without a flash and with an extra sensor. 

Undeniably, the teaser in question does suggest Lenovo has a quadruple-camera smartphone up its sleeves. However, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time the company’s Vice President has misled the public. Way back in May, the executive hinted multiple times at an entirely bezel-less smartphone dubbed the Z5. When the smartphone was finally announced, though, it proved to be a massive disappointment due to the presence of both a chin and a notch, two details that were not depicted in teasers.

Considering this, it’s worth taking this teaser with a grain of salt and reserving any judgment until the final product is announced. Speaking of which, an unveiling should take place sometime next month.

Do we really need four cameras on phones? Like REALLY need them? Ugly as sin to look at too.

Why not? If we can have a monochrome lens, wide angle lens, regular one, and another telephoto lens all in one phone, I would gladly take it. People said the same thing about two cameras on a smartphone, then about 3 lenses, and now we all complain about 4 lenses when we will appreciate it when it's finally released.

I'd take one big sensor over four small ones any day of the week.

We all learned from the last time to take any Lenovo teaser with a truckload of salt. A grain of salt is far too little.

Honestly would perfer if they used the dot for laser focus and had a dual or quad (see what I did there) LED flash somewhere else. A single LED that small would be a joke. Also they probably lack OIS, which means a pass for me
