As years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds have passed by, the technology scene have equally followed suit and is advancing literally every time we blink our eyes. If it is any truth (which I’m pretty much sure is), the past 5 – 7 years have birthed some of the craziest tech innovations we never thought of. Some, we never saw coming; particularly on our smartphones.

From cutting down the surrounding environment of our device’s display (bezels) to birth “Full View” bezel-less smartphones, to incorporating amazing front lenses on the best selfie camera smartphones, to unbelievable battery capacities on our smartphones and many more, the rate at which the smartphone ecosystem is advancing may someday catch up with the speed of light.

Now aiming the spear on the core point of this article – to highlight some devices that 2017 presented us which all came with not one, not two, not three but four cameras. Yes, 4 lenses dedicated solely to optics. I bet you would find it difficult to predict what innovation could possibly be hitting us soon because majority of course didn’t see this coming.

Cutting straight to the chase, let’s go through some smartphones carrying four lenses, their specifications, prices and where to buy each individual one at the best prices on several local and international markets.

Top 10 Smartphones with four (4) cameras

OUKITEL U22

The Oukitel U22 is definitely one of my favourite off this list. Not only does this beautiful device come with two lenses on the rear and two on the front, it also manages to pack other decent features like a large display, 2GB of RAM, the Android Nougat operating system and a replaceable battery.

Going back to the device’s optics, the rear camera combination comprises of a primary 13-megapixel lens and a secondary 2-megapixel lens. On the front, the dual camera is a an 8MP and 2MP camera combo. Another feature of the Oukitel U22 that is exciting is the presence of LED flash lights both on the front and rear of the device.

Be it during the day time, or you are in a party at night, be sure to capture the best lighted images under any light conditions.

Huawei Mate 10 Lite

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite is the watered down version of the Huawei Mate 10 and it is surprising how the Mate 10 Lite comes with four cameras while the Mate 10 has only three (two on the rear and one on the front).

The camera resolution of the dual lenses on the rear are 16-megapixels and 2-megapixels respectively. Accompanied by a LED flash for lightening up the subject to be caotured, the rear camera also come with features like AutoFocus, Touch Focus, Smile and Face detection, Panarama, HDR, Geo-tagging and more. On the front, two sensors (13MP and 2MP) are embedded.

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite has entirely the same specifications as the Huawei Nova 2i. This is because they are the same device but Huawei decided to give them different names across different regions of the world. In some regions of the world, the Mate 10 Lite was launched under the code name Huawei Maimang 6.

Basically; Huawei Nova 2i = Huawei Mate 10 = Huawei Maimang 6.
