If you’re curious about the new dual cameras on cell phones, you’re not alone. The LG G6 and the Motorola Moto Z2 Force are among the phones with dual cameras. Both have 12 megapixel primary cameras and a monochrome one. They also feature wide-aperture lenses and optical image stabilization (OIS). The P9 and Mate 9 feature a secondary camera with a wide-angle lens and OIS.
The first dual camera phone
The first dual camera phone was the HTC Evo 3D in 2011, where it was used for capturing 3D images for the screen. While many manufacturers tried this technology, it never really took off, until the HTC one M8 debuted the Duo setup and depth-of-field effects. Since then, the technology has evolved to improve image quality and introduce additional image effects, such as portrait modes and long-exposure shooting. The next phase will be to decide which smartphones will support the dual camera feature.
The first phone with a dual camera setup was the iPhone 7 Plus. The phone included a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera that supported a 2x zoom. Different smartphone manufacturers have adopted this technology, and the HTC Evo 3D was the first to use it. In 2007, the Samsung flip phone was the first device to incorporate a dual camera setup. However, the LG G6 and the iPhone 7 Plus were the first to introduce this feature.
