This new camera utilizes 16 lenses (with 10 firing simultaneously) to create incredible, high quality images in little to no light. This is known as multi-aperture imaging. This powerful technology rivals expensive DSLR cameras and is surprisingly slim. Pair this with Apple’s acquisition of LinX Imaging (a company with similar technology) and this could be a preview of where all mobile phone cameras are heading.
