    Nokia is a 25+ billion dollar company. Look it up.

    Sounds like the brute force hardware approach to Google's software AI. My guess is it'll be better but not significant.

    I can only imagine how that meeting went...
    Apple and Samsung all have dual cameras on their flagships
    And what do we have on ours a single camera??
    No Sir
    Well upgrade ours, catch them!
    Yes sir! Prepare engineering to add an extra camera.
    No wait.. Dual cameras too slow
    Dual Cameras too slow??
    Yes... We’re going to have to go right to Ludicrous Cameras!

    Interesting? Is that what you call it? Just when i thought the new Samsung phone with the O Hole cut that makes the phone look like it has two back panels, was ugly... Now comes this technological atrocity!

    What a bargain!

    You can buy the one Nokia smartphone and then resell each of the five "separate camera entities" separately.

    lol...really? i think so. I guess Apple's a long way behind this, as they'd rather do it all in software first.

    oh yeah, these go for what, 5-10$ a piece?

    But no seriously; this is not "5 lenses" with different focal lengths, its 5 lenses with 5 sensors with shared storage and brains. It's like a DSLR that would have a sensor built in behind the lens, so i still don't quite get your point

    My point is regarding the meaning of the word "camera".

    The Nokia smartphone itself is the camera, not the individual lense/sensor units.

    When you carry a smartphone in your pocket, you're only carrying the single camera no matter how many lenses it has.

    I was joking about your use of the term "separate camera entities" because they are not individual cameras in any practical sense of the word.

    Not really obvious when you write one thing, but mean something else.
