The triple selfie camera is near: Meitu phone visits TENAA
Triple camera phones are starting to become commonplace, but itís always the rear camera. What if you want a triple selfie camera? Then Meitu has the phone for you (coming soon, this info is courtesy of TENAA). Okay, the Honor Magic 2 technically has a triple camera, but two of those are 2MP depth sensors.
Anyway, you are forgiven if you haven't heard of Meitu, but youíll start hearing of the brand more often. Yesterday Xiaomi announced that it is taking over the hardware side of the selfie-focused brand. Meitu itself will continue to work on the camera software.
The Meitu MP1801 is from before this deal was announced, so itís not Mi-hardware. It has a 12+20+8 MP selfie camera, though TENAA doesnít reveal their function. If we had to guess, itís normal, wide-angle and depth sensor.
We boosted the brightness of the first image a bit and, yes, this looks like the mother of all notches. Take that, Pixel 3 XL.
Thereís a dual camera on the rear, 12+8MP, which has a split LED flash Ė it looks like two on the left and two on the right. This phone offers a pretty interesting camera setup on both sides.
The design is curious too, that V-shape and the different materials smack of Vertu. Continuing on with the specs, thereís a 6.21Ē OLED display with 1080p+ resolution, 6-core processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage. Itís running Android 9.0 Pie (with customizations).
