Alcatel’s Flash smartphone has four cameras
It was only a matter of time.
And now, Alcatel has released a phone that has two cameras on each side.
Called Alcatel Flash, it’s a 5.5-inch device with a metallic body, a full HD screen, a Helio X20 deca-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage memory, a fingerprint scanner on the back and a 3,100mAh battery.
Those specs are fine, but the big deal here, of course, are those cameras Alcatel’s official page for the device is almost entirely devoted to the phone’s photography aspect.
On the back, the phone has two 13-megapixel sensors, one of which takes color photos, while the other takes black and white images. Both lenses have an aperture size of f/2.0, and the idea similar to what Huawei is doing on its flagship phones appears to be to combine the sharper monochromatic photo with the color one to get sharper, more detailed photos with accurate colors.
On the front, there’s an 8-megapixel/5-megapixel combo, with the same aperture size.
The dual cameras on all sides allow for some nifty tricks, such as adjusting the focus after you’ve taken the photo. The rear camera can also store RAW images, which some photography buffs will welcome.
Alcatel didn’t share any details on pricing and availability of the Flash.
