Just forget about the faster processors and even high-resolution screens! Now, you’re entering into an era of phones outfitted with the dual-camera technology from Corephotonics, which is far better than 4K digital cameras.
How The Dual-Cameras Journey Started Out?
Way back in 2014, when an Israeli group was all set to install its new technology onto the future phones and probably you’ll be able to see these high-tech phones around the 3rd quarter of 2016. When it comes to the new dual-camera tech; it assures the optical zoom with non-moving parts, whereas also enabling for improved noise reduction, which is unavailable in present phone camera sensors.
A mobile world Congress, was held in 2014 in Barcelona and Corephotonics representative told CNET that this technology would come out soon, probably this year but, till two years, nothing happened. In fact, the delay is indeed annoying, particularly when it comes to the technology geeks who are looking to have something new and cool.
The benefits of the dual-camera technology were quite clear soon after the launch. Corephotonic’s vice president of sales and licensing, Eran Kali told that “the demand for the dual-camera tech was already there and was increasing with the passage of time, especially when the first development got completed in 2015.”
“At that point, we didn’t have sufficient supply-chain for dual-cameras and we were trying to refurbish it. I’m quite satisfied and happy to report that right now. We’re currently working on the three key aspects such as demand, supply chain and development. The entire process includes a framework of application processor and the camera manufacturing.
Despite the fact that Corephotonics refused to corroborate whether X-cam phones and LG’s new G5 have the dual-camera technology or not, we know that the developed technology is part of the in-house effort, an LG executive said. These phones don’t share the Corephotonics features such as they don’t have that optical zoom.
Flouting The Old Persistence
Let’s just accept the fact that the mobile phones are continuously striving to excite the users more. Almost each phone has same specifications; same storage options, same 4K digital cameras with the superficial feature differences such as water-resistant ability or by their looks or whether they have a fingerprint sensor or not. The customer wants something new that stands out and no doubt, the dual-camera tech gratifies that need.
Are you one of those who wished to get closer to the image, or you have gone nuts because of the awful picture looks as you forgot to turn on the flash or thinking how far-off you’re? Dual-camera technology fixes all of these issues and nails it in the aspect of compact point and shoot.
Dual-camera technology doesn’t only benefit the Android manufacturers, but there are rumors that Apple’s iPhone 7 will be featuring this tech and probably seized up by some other Israeli company working to enhance the phone cameras image quality.
On the other hand, you can also physically limit the size of the sensor when you squeeze it into a phone. Have you remembered that HTC have already tried this technology in the HTC’s 4 Megapixel shooter, and it didn’t work out well, whereas the Samsung’s New Galaxy S7 comes with the bigger sensor but still you can’t zoom in correctly with no optical zoom? On the other hand, the sensor’s new low-light performance of the Samsung looks inspiring in the demos.
2017 Will Be The Year Of Dual Cameras
Most probably, if there’s anything true in rumors regarding Apple, we will then experience the optical zoom feature in the iPhone 7 and of course, other companies will have to equip their gadgets as well to catch up.
Just stop thinking about the mobile payment and the virtual reality –dual-camera technology is where we all are heading this year. It offers great benefits and obviously, mobile photographers will have something more commendable to play with.
