Sony says dual-lens camera tech launching with 'major smartphone players' in next year

"Well, for next year, our so-called dual-lens — dual-camera platform will be launched by, we believe, from major smartphone players," said Kenichiro Yoshida during Sony's most recent results call, as reported by Xperia Blog.

Yoshida warned however that the high-end smartphone market is "slowing down," which could impact demand and production by smartphone makers.

"So, we believe the real start, the takeoff of smartphone with dual-lens camera will be in the year of 2017," he noted.
