LG Patents New Type Of Smartphone Camera

A recent patent filed by LG shows a new smartphone camera system that appears to have 16 lenses. The patent describes a use case where the handset can create a short film that allows the user to interact with the photo. This may be similar to the technology Lytro released in 2011, or it could be something entirely new. LG seems pretty proud of it based on the patent.
