The South Korean tech brand, LG, is said to be working on a smartphone concept with triple lens camera module at the front. LG is eyeing at joining the league of tech brands which offer triple lens camera at the front. The most recent one to join the league was it’s own South Korean rival, Samsung, which launched it’s Samsung Galaxy A80 with triple lens rotating camera sensor which serves the role of front and rear snapper.
Talking about LG’s leaked news about it’s front triple lens camera module in it’s upcoming smartphone, reports suggest that LG has filed for a patent of smartphone with triple lens camera module at the front in the World Intellectual Property office. The triple lens camera module is restricted within the notch as shown in the image below. The specifications of the smartphone aren’t known yet, however, there are speculations about the camera department.
As per speculations, LG may feature a ToF 3D sensor and also an ultra wide angle sensor in the triple lens camera module. To recall, LG currently features dual lens camera module at the front of LG G8 ThinQ. In the setup, the company has enclosed a ToF sensor as well as wide angle lens.
At the rear, the patent image shows the presence of a horizontally aligned triple lens camera sensors. The LG fans still have to wait for the in-display fingerprint scanner as the company is reportedly planning to feature a rear mounted fingerprint reader. The image also shows the alignment of volume rockers and AI assistant buttons on the left while SIM tray as well as power button on the right.
We do not see the 3.5mm Audio Jack in the image. This suggests that the Korean brand may be dumping the 3.5mm audio jack. It is unpredictable, however, if this image is the actual patent filed or if the company will make some revisions before launching the phone.
