The camera on a smartphone is one of the most valued aspects of a phone for consumers looking for an upgrade. Smartphone cameras push the boundaries of mobile photography. There are no bad smartphone cameras above a certain price point, just those with different colour science, photo processing, and varied post-processing technologies. A triple camera setup is a sweet spot for mobile cameras – this allows you to have a host of lenses while also giving you the versatility of a full-fledged camera in terms of how useful it is at night for capturing landscapes even zooming in on your subject. So, if you’re in the market for a phone upgrade, here are some of the best premium phones that feature triple rear cameras.
Apple iPhone 12 Pro
Apple’s iPhones are often regarded as one of the best camera smartphones. This is thanks to the high-quality sensors, intelligent image processing, and a simple, clean and straightforward camera UI. The iPhone 12 Pro comes with a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide lens and a telephoto zoom lens, giving you a versatile set of cameras in the palm of your hand. The camera sports HDR functionality, dual optical stabilisation, and portrait lighting, which can lend a studio-like look to your pictures- these are just some of the camera features of the iPhone 12 Pro. The rear cameras not only make for impressive photos but cinematic video quality as well – they can record video in HDR, 1080p and even 4K at up to 60fps.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
A triple camera setup at the back makes the Z Fold 3 a great all-around phone up for any task. The cameras include a primary shooter, an ultra-wide lens and a telephoto lens for all kinds of images. All lenses sport 12-megapixel sensors, which may seem low on paper, but pictures are crisp, detailed, and vivid thanks to high tech image processing. The ultra-wide lens is great for picturing vast landscapes and serene vistas, while the telephoto lens lets you get up close and personal with your subjects. The primary camera is rather promising, offering HDR photos, good exposure balance and tonally correct colours. Photo editors can also make use of the large 7.6-inch screen for editing on the move.
Vivo X60 Pro
This is a great premium camera phone. It features professional-grade triple cameras at the back – a 48-megapixel primary camera and a 13-megapixel portrait camera with a 50mm focal length, giving a bokeh effect and an ultra-wide lens. If you’re looking to expand your photographic horizons, then you’re going to love the 120-degree FOV ultra-wide angle lens. Thanks to advanced image processing, the wide FOV camera works well at night. The camera system has been designed in tandem with Zeiss, which should make for more realistic and lively studio-like shots. Video is ultra-stable, thanks to in-built optical gimbal stabilisation, which lets you get really creative and take cinematic shots.
iQOO 7 Legend 5G
Packing triple cameras under a budget, this is one of the ideal phones for budding vloggers, YouTubers, and Instagram reels creators. The primary camera is ideal for everyday usage with a Sony IMX598 mobile camera sensor with 48-megapixels. The camera lets you effortlessly take vivid, detailed and rich pictures that can really light up your social media profiles. The 13-megapixel 50mm portrait lens lets you capture studio-like subject shots which are backed by realistic lighting and impressive computational post-processing. There’s also a 120-degree wide-angle camera that lets you capture the most of a subject, especially if it is a landscape. The cameras are capable enough to handle their own in low light situations and also at night. Video capabilities include 4K@60 FPS recording and impressive slow-motion recording.
