As you could see, for a long time, Smartphone manufacturers have the arms race. Their devices are becoming smaller, thinner, and lighter. The chipsets become faster, screens are bigger, and even some times prices lower. But now it's a camera turn.
This year Apple introduced its new line of Smartphone's iPhone 11. Now iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max have an ultra-wide-angle camera and long-awaited by all "night mode." The new iPhone has three camera modules: one widescreen and two ultra-wide. According to Apple, the new modules will improve the quality of photo and video shooting several times. The camera modules installed in the new iPhones have a resolution of 12 megapixels.
Now let's look at what Samsung can answer without increasing the number of modules in its smartphones to surpass the current results of Apple and other competitors in the market. According to many business sources, Samsung plans to release a new smartphone with a 108-megapixel camera module by 2020. For comparison, this is ten times more than in any other flagship Smartphone. Smart software is also used to achieve the best picture quality. Such a powerful hardware part of the camera in the future Smartphone from Samsung will not be excessive.
Progress does not stand still, and another major smartphone maker, Xiaomi, already has a device with similar camera features. Given the fact that the trade war between China and the United States continues, and components for smartphones of many companies are produced at the same factories, in the future, we will be able to see even more manufacturers who will take technology from companies that have come under sanctions.
