Today’s high-end smartphones are usually equipped with at least three types of rear cameras, namely the main camera, ultra-wide angle and telephoto/periscope snapper. This provides enough flexibility to provide users with cameras suitable for almost all occasions.
We have also seen the addition of a fourth camera in flagship phones, but it seems that the industry cannot agree on which type of camera should be used. So what do you think the fourth camera of a flagship phone should be? Give us your answer by voting below.
A trend in recent years is to add a second telephoto/periscope camera as the fourth sensor. We have seen Xiaomi, Huawei and Samsung all adopt this method, providing short-distance telephoto cameras and long-distance telephoto or periscope shooters.
We have also seen OnePlus, Huawei and Honor adopt a monochrome camera as the fourth sensor to achieve true black and white shooting and better low-light capture. Another important trend is to promote 3D ToF or depth sensor as the fourth camera of high-end smartphones to achieve more accurate depth effects and portrait mode images.

Oppo may have become the cake of the strangest fourth camera on a smartphone, because Find X3 Pro brings a 3MP microscope camera to the desktop. This is closer than a macro camera, and as the name suggests, you can capture microscope-style images.
