50% Smartphones To Have Three Cameras or More By 2021
New Delhi: As the “megapixel war” among smartphone companies heats up, 50 percent of the smartphones sold globally will have three or more camera sensors by the end of 2021, a new report by Counterpoint Research has predicted. In 2019, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are taking the battle a step ahead, with the triple camera set-up now becoming popular among the users. Almost six per cent of smartphones sold globally had three or more rear camera sensors in March 2018. This figure is likely to go up to 15 per cent by the end of 2019 and 35 per cent by the end of 2020. “Similar to dual camera adoption trend, the triple camera fixture initially featured in the higher-priced smartphones.
However, towards the end of 2018 and early 2019, even smartphones in the affordable premium and mid-tier price bands featured three or more cameras,” said Hanish Bhatia, Senior Analyst, Devices and Ecosystem, Counterpoint Research. More than 40 smartphone launched as of April this year had three or more cameras. Other OEMs, including Apple and OnePlus, would join the bandwagon later this year, said the report. (IANS)
