For smartphones, the camera technology has been limited by the thickness of the fuselage. So in recent years, we have seen more and more raised cameras and even dual camera configurations.
Due to this inherent limitation, the pursuit of lightweight mobile devices is difficult to support multiple optical zoom. butMicrosoftThis new patent, but to show us the unique solutions.
According to the Patent Description, the sensor on the side of the device may have a view of 120 degrees, while the other side has an optical array. When they are stacked together, they will be able to match the 60 or 90 degrees of long focus.
As a result, while supporting scaling, it does not affect image quality. In addition the document also mentioned that this technology is suitable for almost any type of device, such as smart phones, tablets, laptops.
