Apple should have that tech, they bought it(lytro like tech). Could be used for most of picture, with just some areas in which you would use guessing as it is now. Would work for most situations.
Ultrawide is best. Telephoto implementation in smartphone cameras is inutile with limited optical zoom and horrid digital zoom. I pity smartphone owners who take pride posting photos of lunar eclipses from their expensive flagship smartphones claiming 'state of the art' photographic capabilities of their phones. An ultrawide shot from a smartphone is just as beautiful and professional looking as ultrawide shots from dedicated cameras. Not those stupid panoramic stitching that is devoid of substance and character. Ultrawide should be standard in secondary phone cameras, not those stupid, useless, short telephoto cameras with visibly fake-looking bokehs. For the serious photographer, ultrawide is it over some crappy short zoom. If smartphone can't put at least 10x OPTICAL zoom in their secondary cameras, there's no point putting in a stupid 2x-3x short telephoto camera.

As for this topic. Till today NOT impressed. The only good camera overall would be lumias cameras. And they are not dual triple whatever. They are just good clear and reliable. But, with "experts" this days, is hard to find the elephant in the room of fotography, the more the brand name and device price, the "better" the camera. A great mass placebo lead by the overnight "experts". But hey, at least someone makes money out of all.

We even have alcohol experts (yeah, they are not called alcoholic anymore). Soon the world will be full of "experts" with no real knowlege, whatsoever.
1/1.7 or larger quad-bayer sensor with dual-pixel AF and integrated DRAM + the equally sized monochrome sensor + F1.8 lens and OIS on both + at least 1/2.9 inch telephoto lens. Basically a mixture of the camera setup of XZ2 Premium, P20 Pro and Galaxy S9. I know it wouldn't happen in real life, though.

IMO Enhancing colour information with monochrome sensor like on XZ2 Premium would work better if you want better low-light shots.
You should've been more advanced with the dialogue. People could easily mistake zoom with "software zoom" and black and white with "filters". You should've instead putted telephoto lens and monochrome lens
4 r+g+g+b sensors with super wide fov and resolution 8K capable, to have good enough zoom in and "normal" fov quality, while giving more close to reality capture(fov of how we see). With that real color resolution would go up from 808 4 times, from p20pro 16 times.
Imagine an Advanced sensor that incorporates:
1) Sony 3-layer stacked BSI-CMOS image sensor with Ultra High-Speed DRAM for continuous FHD+ 960 fps and 4K HDR+ 120 fps slo-mo recording
2) Samsung and Fujifilm ISOCELL plus pixel-wall for improved light sensitivity
3) Huawei Quad Bayer filter for improved low light sensitivity, better HDR, and long exposure
4) 2.0um pixel size
5) 1/1.5" sensor size
Imagine the flexibility of having both Telephoto and Wide-angle lenses since unlike professional cameras you can't swap out lenses. So Three camera system:
1) main camera 24mm - 50mm 5-axis OIS lens
2) wide-angle camera 11mm - 24mm 5-axis OIS lens
3) telephoto camera 50mm - 105mm 5-axis OIS lens
Imagine all these with Google AI software and manual settings being able to select any ISO, shutter speed, file format including RAW
cheeze, 09 Jul 2018wide angle is more useful specially if you travel a lot.It's even useful in indoor spaces with too many people.
Best camera, yeah maybe. But no best photo if i still need photoshop. All photographer in the world just bring iphone samsung or pixel phone to do the job.
More than monochrome I would like separate colors instead. Still, better than ordinary 2nd camera just for bokeh/... Tele and super-wide lens are great, so are multiple lenses, as great way to counter sensor tech limitations. New sensor tech produce however better results, be it one from Sony or from Huawei.
I would prefer better sensor over multiple lens.
