Huawei Rumoured to Launch Triple Camera Smartphone – Dynamic Range Monster? Who Knows?

Without a great smartphone, the Snap and Instagram experience is difficult or impossible. This alone gives smartphone manufacturers incentive to create bigger and better iterative editions of their popular lines.

In an arms race quickly resembling the razor blade industry’s obsession with adding more blades, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei could launch the world’s first triple camera headset in a bid to outdo its competitors, most of whom employ the dual camera design that was groundbreaking only a few years ago.

What the exact benefits of incorporating a triple-camera design into a smartphone will be for users are not known but people are expecting bigger means better everything, and, going on past history in phone cameras, this tends to be the case.
