LG recently submitted a patent for a smartphone that is outfitted with three rear and three front-facing cameras featuring basic sketches of the device. The WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) registered the patent that went live on Friday.
The device in the diagrams seems to have three cameras in the notch cluster of the smartphone. Each camera’s function is not yet clearly described, but we are predicting that one has a standard lens, another one with an ultra-wide angle lens, and the third might be a ToF sensor.
Observing the design of the smartphone in the diagram, there’s a high chance for the smartphone to be a successor to the LG V50 that launched just recently at the MWC.
The overall design of this smartphone seems very similar to LG’s current flagships. The rear looks very similar to the LG V50 only difference being the horizontally placed triple camera.
The left side of the device sports the same separate volume keys and a dedicated Google Assistant key. The right side features the power key and a long SIM/microSD card tray.
Apart from the triple selfie cameras, one key difference that we noticed is the absence of a headphone jack. Is this an indication LG will stop offering the feature in a future device?
Maybe not right now, but this trend of removing the headphone jack won’t be missed by the general peeps.
