Three cameras Samsung Galaxy S22 will be able to change the aperture depending on lighting conditions

Samsung has filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that describes a smartphone camera system with movable image sensors. They can move between lenses with different apertures. The source believes that such a system will be implemented in the Galaxy S22.

This solution will allow the user to change the aperture used for a particular scenario, depending on the lighting conditions. When you need to take a photo in the dark, simply switch to a wider aperture lens.

The new patent shows a three-camera setup with wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, and telescopic modules, with each sensor being able to change position. The camera in the center can move up and down, while the other two sensors move horizontally. In fact, a smartphone should have six lenses for three image sensors.

In the standard position, the sensors are in line, but they can also move to form a triangle while using other lenses. The Samsung Galaxy S9 was the first smartphone from the manufacturer to feature an interchangeable aperture lens (f / 1.5 for low light and f / 2.5 for bright light). However, in this smartphone, the function only worked with a wide-angle camera. Thanks to the new technology, all three cameras will be able to change the aperture depending on the lighting conditions.

Samsung isn't the only manufacturer working on a moveable camera. Last year it became known that Xiaomi is also developing a similar smartphone.
