Brace yourselves for the tri-cam phones, as P20 Plus leak reiterates three rear lenses

Brace yourselves, the tri-cam phones are coming. While the early prototype of the Huawei P20 that leaked yesterday still featured the dual-camera config of last year’s P10, it was obviously not what the retail device will end up looking like, judging from today’s leaked case renders of the P20 Plus.

Here, you can clearly see the triple vertical camera setup that we saw on the 360 degree renders not long ago, coming from a rather reputable source. As a reminder, the P20 might have Plus and Lite models, as Huawei is known to throw in, which will feature different designs, sets …

High spec’d and aggressively priced to give the current top flagships a run for their money, the OnePlys 5 manages to impress with great all-around performance and sleek, albeit familiar, design.

We’ve already taken a look at how the primary 16MP camera of the OnePlus 5 compares to some of the best shooters currently on the market, but what about the larger, 20MP camera …

What if the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera had six camera lenses to choose from? You'd get the Shiftcam case

Rugged cases? Check – we have plenty of these to choose from. Six camera lenses? Hold up a second – what is this, and do we actually need it? Well, we think the freedom to switch between real telephoto, wide-angle, fish-eye, and macro lens at any moment sounds pretty freaking great! Why ask seemingly random questions? Because there’s a product that offers both these things in a single package!

The Shiftcam Camera Lens Case for the iPhone 7 Plus is seriously rugged and has six built-in switchable lenses. It also has the formidable and intimidating looks …
