In the last year, the number of cameras mounted on the back of smartphones on average has increased considerably and it seems that Sony has also decided to follow this trend.
According to the latest rumors, the Japanese manufacturer would be working on a new Xperia model with an imaging compartment that even exceeds that of the Nokia 9 PureView: it should indeed boast six cameras.
The indiscretion was spread by Max J. on Twitter, who added that the smartphone is still under development and therefore there is no information on the name or its possible characteristics but has published an image based on a concept that highlights the six rear cameras, which should be organized as follows:
- 20 MP, F / 2.4
- 48 MP, F / 1.2 – F / 2.4
- 16 MP, F / 2.4
- 8 MP, F / 2.4
- 12 MP F / 1.2 – F / 2.4
- 0.5 MP TOF
It remains to understand how Sony intends to exploit these cameras, among which, judging by the types of sensors, should not be missing a telephoto lens, a ToF sensor, a wide-angle sensor and perhaps a double monochromatic sensor to improve details in shots in difficult light conditions.
As I mentioned last week there's going to be a new Sony phone. Today I heard some things regarding it's camera specs:
The specs might be different in the final product do to this device still being in development. The images are based on imagination.
Enjoy the specs!😜 pic.twitter.com/pKWR7L9dTT

It is worth to mention that a leaked image reveals a camera module similar to the module on the rear of the rumored iPhone 11 has appeared, and the recently leaked Pixel 4 from Google, though this one looks more elongated with a LED flash outside of the camera arrays. It is unclear what Sony intends to achieve or how it intends to put these cameras to work until now.
