It looks like Light, the maker of the L16 multi-lens camera, is really putting its money on the mobile sector. A few days ago the company announced it was partnering with Sony to use the Japanese chip maker's image sensor in its multi-camera modules.

Shortly after, at the Mobile World Congress HMD Global launched its Nokia 9 PureView smartphone which uses Light's technology in its main camera. Nokia phones won't be the only smartphones to come with Light-engineered cameras, however. Now Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi and Light have announced that they'll collaborate in developing smartphone cameras and computational photography technology as well.

The partnership is still brand new, so it will likely take some time before we see the first results in the shape of final products on store shelves. That said, it's good to see Light is working with multiple manufacturers to market its innovative imaging technologies, which will likely accelerate market penetration and innovation of multi-lens cameras alike.
