If you don't understand this, I advise you just shut up.. I don't see dual cameras will make phones ugly, it's depends on how they put it or how they design it..
Jack Kim, 05 Nov 2016This is more branding collaboration between Huawei and Leica than technological collaboration.... moreYou're right, knowing Huawei I guess I shouldn't have been surprised but now the one and only reason to but Huawei (assumed Leica lenses) at their over the top prices is just another advertising front.
Innovation died together with Steve Jobs. Smartphones today no longer have that WOW factor back in the days. Its just constant upgrade with the chips and cameras to make it faster and sound dramatic on the sheets.
This is more branding collaboration between Huawei and Leica than technological collaboration.
In another word, Huawei pays a lot of money in order to use Leica word nearby its camera. The main intention is to fool users to believe the camera was made by Leica.

One camera should be enough for both selfies and also as a main camera. It should slide out from the phone top like a periscope and it should be called the periscope cam.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2016Make it simple, huawei partnership with leica to produce a software for their camera. Thats wh... moreTrue, combining color/monochrome images to produce bettet photo isn't much of the phone manufacturer's business or asset.
Processing matters more than what make of the lens is
dual cameras looks so stupid. Seariously, I am sad. I would really like smartphones to increase in speed/performance more than cameras. We need more competition. Probably 2016 is the last year for simple smartphones with 1 camera, all 2017 flagships gonna have this ugly dual cameras i believe. Sad.
But the perspective will differ so I'm not sure how it will go at it.
Macro photos is the area where it'll be immediately noticable, but rest it should fare well.
Although I believe we can only see the images and then comment, but I believe in the single sensor theory still. What I would love is a 8-10MP big sized well developed Sony sensor... That would be great. Like the HTC's Ultrapixel, except that the market sadly didn't accept it well at 4 MP.
It would be a balanced ace at anything:- 4K, 4K60, quality, detail, shutter speeds, colors, etc.
Even when I see the old Nokia N8 images, it still blows everything out of water. Pure sensor power, isn't it? :)
.alpha, 04 Nov 2016All marketing. The final image only gets information from the color sensor. The b&w sensor... moreNo they are not marketing. I own honor p9 and honor 8. The b&w sensor does work in colored picture. If you cover the b&w sensor, the picture will have lower detail and etc
Can you imagine Canon eos or Sony alpha or Nikon with two objectives? I do not!
Companies, please throw away this market strategy of dual cameras and just make an incredible camera, it will take much better pictures!
All marketing. The final image only gets information from the color sensor. The b&w sensor only work in b&w mode.
