When the Light first came out with its 16-lens camera, it seemed ridiculous to squeeze so many cameras into one product. But now, when flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S10, click on their cameras to three or even four in one device, multi-camera smartphones start to look more like a norm.
You can expect that you will see more of this in the near future as Light announced that it will work with Sony and Xiaomi to develop more devices with several features. With the company Sony, Light is working to combine its system with several cameras with the Sony image processing system to create applications that could use this combination. Together, Light says it will help Sony smartphones to come up to four cameras or more in their new lineup. The details are less specific to the Light partnership with Xiaomi, with companies only pointing out that it will be partnering to bring DSLR-quality photos to smartphones. , calling Sony the "market leader" and Xiaomi "one of the most innovative smartphone manufacturers." Considering that Light also worked with HMD Global on the new Nokia 9 with the same camera, it looks like Light will be the main partner of many new smartphones with multiple cameras over the next few years. But, as always, it's about software to determine which company makes the most out of the asset, or if it's mostly cunning.
