Dual camera support?

Does any of the sailfish ports have dual camera hardware? I coildn't find any on the libhybris adaptations wiki..

I am curios if one uses the HADK to port to a such dual camera device what would happen in the Camera app: would it show up somehow?

I am not actually interested in merging images from two cameras, but just to use them selectively. Imagine a huawei with a second B/W camera.

I would be happy if the camera of Xperia X would work properly, the single one...! Dual support after one camera lens works...

The camera on Xperia has still no priority for jolla and everybody has to live with crippled hardware. Unbelievable they would code something for dual camera support. But wait.. they also make a blockchain phone right now ;)

Even Android doesn't have dual camera support yet. Every vendor develops its own solution.

So does this mean that if a device where sailfish is ported has dual cameras, the image from the Camera app _may_ come from both cameras through firmware?

Looking a bit around, camera_common.h from libhardware has "camera_module->get_number_of_cameras" and then the rest of the calls receive a camera_id [1].

However the Jolla Camera app is not open source, is it?
