Last week according to a tweet by leakster Max J., it was revealed that Sony could have a new smartphone in the works. What makes this smartphone so exciting is how it has been rumored that the handset could be packing as many as six cameras on the back of the phone.

We had wondered what kind of cameras could be used, and now in a follow-up tweet by Max J., he has revealed the cameras that the back of the phone will be packing. One of those cameras will be a 20MP f/2.4 camera, an 8MP f/2.4 camera, a 48MP f/1.2 and f/2.4 camera, a 16MP f/2.4 camera, a 12MP f/1.2 and f/2.4 camera, and last but not least, a 0.5MP ToF camera, which will probably be used to help with augmented reality.

Max J. also revealed that on the front, there will be two cameras: a 10MP camera and a 0.3MP ToF camera. Unfortunately, apart from the sensor size and aperture, he does not mention anything about the lenses used, although we imagine that there will be one that is for zoom, one for wide-angle, and based on other camera systems we’ve seen in the past, one could even specialize in monochromatic photography.

All of this will presumably be combined to help create photos with as high a dynamic range as possible, but we’re just speculating and hopefully, Sony will have more details to share soon.

Sony will not be the first to create a smartphone with this many cameras. Earlier this year, the Nokia 9 PureView was launched with a five-camera system, although we walked away feeling less than impressed, so fingers-crossed that Sony will be able to do a better job implementing all these cameras together.
