’s multi-sensor patent soups up the iPhone’s camera color and resolution

As the iPhone’s camera becomes the handset’s most-used fture, is incrsingly looking for ways to enhance the experience. The latest example comes in a patent granted Tuesday which combines three sensors providing s with improved color saturation and lighting.According to the patent approved by the U.S. Pantent and Trademark , the three-sensor technology described by is part of a trend among smartphone manufacturers adopting multiple sensors for grter mobile photography…In the patent entitled“ capture using luminance and chromatic sensors,”the iPhone maker outlines a trio of sensors – two devoted to color and one for detecting light. Information from the three sensors are melded into one with grter color saturation and providing higher definition for objects.As thepatent appliionexplains,the sensors ch are equipped with a lens for focusing light. By arraying the light sensor between two chromatic sensors, the setup permits a stereo map to be crted.Such integration of three sensors permits an that is of a quality not possible with a single sensor.The patent abstract rds:One embodiment may take the form of an sensing device that includes a first sensor for capturing a luminance , a second sensor for capturing a first chrominance, and a third sensor for capturing a second chrominance .The sensing device may further include an processing module for combining the luminance captured by the first sensor, the first chrominance captured by the second sensor, and the second chrominance captured by the third sensor, to form a composite .This is not the first use of a tri-sensor arrangement for improved smartphone camera ry.The One’s UltraPixel camera also combines multiple sensors to crte a single, richer .
