Your future smartphones may well be advanced ones having at least 3 cameras. This trend is said to go to peak by 2021. The end of this year is also reportedly set to see shipments of triple camera smartphones go up to as much as 15% of all smartphones.
As per an IANS report, quoted by BGR India, that in turn quotes Hanish Bhatia who is Senior Analyst of Devices Ecosystem at Counterpoint Research, the degree of adaption fo dual camera smartphones was reportedly on the rise and the same could be observed even in the case of triple camera smartphones during the end of 2018 and early 2019.
Also, as many as 40 phones launched up till April 2019 featured at least three camera sensors. Samsung and Huawei were also reportedly the leaders in this “multi-camera smartphones” segment.
A report by Counterpoint also estimates that 100MP camera smartphones would be a reality by 2020, with 64MP camera phones leading the fray from Q2 2019. Hence, 2021 could theoretically be the year when triple camera smartphones become a reality.
This estimation, if in the case turns out to be true, make lead to an increasing number of amateur photographers – as a triple camera smartphone should practically offer at least an amateur photography experience. As far as the Indian scenario is concerned, dual camera smartphones and even triple are currently penetrating the market from the likes of brands such as Vivo, Oppo, Samsung, and Huawei. Here, it should be interesting in case Cupertino-based Apple chooses to enter the projected “triple camera smartphones fray”.
Finally, as far as latest triple camera smartphones are concerned, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a triple rear camera phone. Pricing of this handset starts from Rs 49000 in India.
