LG Patents A Smartphone With Triple Selfie Cameras
Korean smartphone manufacturer, LG is known for making smartphones that have uncommon and distinctive features. Earlier this year it showcased the innovative V50 ThinQ that has an attachable second display. Freshly granted patents to the company indicate that it is working on yet another smartphone with unique elements. The patent granted to LG reveals a smartphone that has triple selfie cameras which is a world first except for the swivel camera on the Galaxy A80.
The patent for the aforementioned smartphone was granted to LG by WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) on the 19th of April 2019. The patent exhibits a smartphone which is highly reminiscent of several LG devices from the past. However, as previously mentioned, the freshly patented handset has triple selfie cameras which are housed in a wide notch at the top of the display.
The rear of the LG smartphone harbours a triple camera setup and a fingerprint sensor. The right side of the device is occupied by the SIM card tray and the power button while its left side is occupied by the volume rockers. The patent exhibits that the top of the device lacks any controls and ports while its bottom houses the loudspeaker griller and a USB port.
Reportedly, the front and rear camera setup of the LG smartphone will utilise a set of similar camera sensors. Like the previously launched LG V50 ThinQ, the upcoming smartphone may have a 12 MP standard sensor, 12 MP telephoto sensor and a 16 MP ultrawide sensor. Furthermore, the company can even opt for a TOF sensor instead of an ultrawide sensor. All in all, precise details about the device will only be publicised once it is addressed by the company.
LG is yet to confirm the development of such a smartphone, therefore, its launch date cannot be determined or speculated.
