It was reported last week that Japanese electronics company Sony is planning on releasing a smartphone with six cameras on the back. The device was leaked by a known gadget tipster on microblogging website Twitter. Unfortunately, no information other than the handset was under development was known then. Now, the same tipster has posted the camera specifications of the rumoured Sony smartphone. The device is touted to have six cameras on the back and two on the front. This takes the number of sensors on the handset to eight.

As mentioned above, the optical specifications of the alleged Sony Xperia smartphone with six rear cameras have been leaked. According to the tipster, Max J. on Twitter the camera unit of the Xperia device will be comprised of an f/2.4 aperture equipped 20MP sensor; combined with an f/2.4 aperture equipped 8MP sensor, a variable aperture ranging from f/1.2-f/2.4 outfitted 48MP sensor; with the fourth sensor also having a variable aperture of f/1.2-f/2.4 and a resolution of 12MP. The fifth sensor will be an f/2.4 aperture kitted 16MP sensor which will be further combined by a 0.5MP Time of Flight (ToF) sensor. Unfortunately, it is not known how the company will implement each sensor to work in tandem with another. For selfies, the leak further claims a 10MP sensor combined with a 0.3MP ToF sensor will be present on the front of the smartphone.

While the camera specifications of the Sony Xperia smartphone seem authentic, the tipster claims it should be taken with a grain of salt. As the device is still in development and nowhere near its official announcement, the optics can be changed before the launch. However, if Sony does go forward and launch a handset with eight cameras in total, it will beat the previous record held by the Nokia 9 PureView for most camera sensors in a smartphone; which has a total of six cameras, five at the back and one on the front.
