Light, makers of the L16 computational camera, is developing a smartphone that employs a 9-camera setup with a release date for later this year, according to reports.

The Washington Post reports that Light is working on a smartphone with nine rear cameras that can produce 64-megapixel images.

What’s more, the Post claims that this 9-camera smartphone will be released at the end of 2018. According to the report:

“A camera-maker called Light has taken this idea furthest. It showed me concept and working prototype phones with between five and nine lenses — yes, nine — on the back. It says its phone design is capable of capturing 64 megapixel shots, better low-light performance and sophisticated depth effects.

Before you get too excited: All those lenses — and the processor power required to stitch together all those individual shots — don’t come cheap. A stand-alone camera from Light with 16 lenses costs $1,950.

When will I get it? Light, which counts giant phone manufacturer Foxconn as an investor, says a smartphone featuring its multi-lens array will be announced later this year.”

Light is the maker of the L16, a compact computational camera that employs 16 multi-aperture lenses to produce images with up to 52-megapixel resolution.
