We will se what a nokia 9 with 5 camera setup will be and if this phone really gets this add-on.
In case of present phones even a Nikon for 100-150 eur makes hundreds times better photo than a best camera smartphone of 2017-2018.

"Instead, companies can choose between a 13MP + 5MP setup for a bokeh-shooting camera and an 8MP + 8MP for a low-light camera." Translation: a 13MP decent camera + 5MP telephoto almost useless except bokeh camera / 2x 8MP cameras color/monochrome which will just suck...better put a good cameras than 2 bad to average ones

And please for all Sony fans, stop saying Samsung uses Sony's sensor just because Sony is better, but because limitations of manufacture.
Samsung always do some research for their own camera sensor, and Samsung always get exclusivity from Sony! So, Samsung's costumizing the sensor as same as their ISOCELL sensor and Sony who made it with exclusive model and it's only for Samsung, just like Apple has costumized the iPhone X's screen but Samsung has made it!

People,

Samsung Mobile uses Samsung Semi's ISOCELL in their Galaxy falgship phones too, not just Sony's. They both have the same specs.

Samsung Mobile and Samsung Semi are two different divisions that falls under the same parent company, Samsung Electronics. The Samsung that this article is talking about is its Semiconductor division, not the Mobile division.

So far sony has the best sensors so Samsung uses it until they finally make a new sensor which really fits for their flagships.

GSMA should do a poll on whether people want bokeh effect on their phones or low light capture. I would vote for low light. I like to have a picture as reminder and let my mind ponder the moment.
