Qualcomm also announces Snapdragon XR2 AR/VR Platform supporting 7 cameras on a headset:

"With XR, for the first time a user can be virtually teleported to a new environment. To do this accurately and efficiently, the Snapdragon XR2 introduces support for seven (7) concurrent cameras and a custom computer vision processor. Multiple concurrent cameras enable real-time and highly accurate tracking of the head, lips and eyes together with 26-point skeletal hand tracking. Computer vision provides highly efficient scene understanding and 3D reconstruction. Together, these features allow users to be transported to new environments where they can intuitively interact within a digital world."

Even 7c and 8c compute platforms have quite impressive camera specs:

Qualcomm's competitor Mediatek announced its 5G platform Dimensity. The platform utilizes big-little processing approach featuring "the world’s first 5 core ISP in a unique 3 big plus 2 small design. It offers the best performance to power efficiency index by matching the right size sensor to the most appropriate ISP."
