This trend is so much in these days that chipset makers have already started upgrading their ISPs with additional interface ports to enable manufacturers to add extra camera sensors and crunch feed from them simultaneously.
Mentioned here are some handsets, which have this peculiar triple camera design:
• Huawei P20 Pro
• Samsung Galaxy S10 & Galaxy S10 Plus
• Oppo R17 Pro
• Samsung Galaxy A7
Huawei P20 Pro
Huawei P20 Pro was the first triple-camera phone to be introduced to the gadget market. The camera module features a 20 MP monochrome lens with f/1.6 aperture, a 40MP RGB sensor with f/1.8 aperture and an 8MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture, OIS, and Telephoto lens for 3X Zoom.
The camera software of is smart enough to combine feed from all three sensors depending on the shooting mode. Apart from the sensors, there is 4 way AF (Laser, Phase Detection, Contrast, AF), a colour temperature sensor that can differentiate between the temperature of subject’s skin and the room to add more accuracy. The P20 Pro also ranks first on DxoMarks best smartphone camera list.

Samsung Galaxy A7
Samsung Galaxy A7
Up until the launch of Samsung A7 (2018), triple camera phones were a costly affair. Samsung Galaxy A7 includes three cameras on the rear and one on the front. The primary 24MP sensor (f/1.7, PDAF) relies on pixel binning (Interpolating data gathered by 4 pixels as 1 for better details), the 5MP sensor is used as a depth sensor to capture portrait mode or Live Focus and the 8MP sensor (f/2.4, 13mm) for shooting in wide angle mode.
The ‘scene optimizer’ in the camera app can also recognize scenes and adjust camera settings accordingly. The primary 24MP rear camera is a very good performer for its price according to our tests.
