How mobile cameras are going to improve this year? Here’s a look at the future of smartphones in 2021.

There was a time when the flex was a dual rear camera smartphone. It’s a requirement now, not a privilege. That’s how far in the past few years mobile cameras have come. Triple rear camera modules are popular in the budget and mid-range segments while quad-cam modules have also made their way to the sub-Rs 15,000 categories.

It’s not just the number of lenses or megapixels, but there’s also a rapid evolution of camera technology. Night Modes are increasingly common and 8K video recording is made possible by many flagship-level smartphones. It’s hard to imagine how the smartphone camera will evolve more, with so many updates already taking place. But, that’s the most fascinating aspect of technology – it continues to grow. Here’s a glimpse at how, in 2021, smartphones will grow.

8K videos Is More Common video recording

Nearly every smartphone in India can record 4K videos and the next significant phase is 8K videos. Few smartphone makers launched 8K video in 2020, but technology is far from mainstream. One explanation is that very few people around the world have access to 8K footage, be they smartphones, laptops or TVs.

Since most smartphone manufacturers are currently focused on the future, 8K video support would probably not deter them from adding to their smartphones. In the next 12 months, however, the rate of adoption is likely to remain low as some businesses will continue until 2022.

Sensors with high resolution

Smartphone manufacturers also face a great deal of scrutiny for the marketing of megapixels devices. Some people call it a cunt. This gimmick is important if 8K videos are to become a mainstream. You need sensors above 8 megapixels to capture 4K videos. That’s why in recent years we saw mobile manufacturers using bigger sensors.

You will need camera sensors above 33-megapixels in order to capture 8K videos. This allows smartphone producers to use larger sensors without any other alternative. Apple and Google, for example, have relied on 12MP lenses for several years, are likely to make an attempt. The opposite is to use the 12MP lenses for 8K videos with an external secondary sensor in higher resolution.

Simultaneous Capture on Smartphones

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC will lead the first flagship smartphone wave from 2021 and one of its greatest improvements is the rise of ISPs to three. For those that do not know, the chip that processes images from cameras is an ISP or image signal processor.

Users can capture up to three cameras simultaneously in a simple term. The ISPs now allow 28 MP ZSL capture (zero shutter lag). The mobile chipset also helps users to record the 4K HDR from three separate cameras simultaneously.

Gimbal stabilization under development

There is a changing position for smartphone cameras. The initial boost came as more and more people began to click on pictures on smartphones rather than on professional cameras. Thanks to the popularity of social media sites and video content, improvement in video capabilities will provide the next boost.

So far, smartphones have used optical image stabilization to make sure you miss the shacks of your pictures and videos. However, content producers are required to invest more on a Gimbal. Vivo was the first smartphone company to alter last year by using the built-in Vivo X50 Pro gimbal stabilization.

Selfie camera on-screen

On smartphones, the front camera always needs to be preferably positioned. Depending upon what the smartphone manufacturer wishes to do, it is easy to pass around. As a consequence of this, we had pop-up auto cameras, high-end selfie cameras and punch-hole shooters. To note, motor cameras were also available. These assessments are far from over.

The next major advancement is the selfie camera on show. OPPO & Mi already saw this technology in 2020 and there are expected to be more smartphones next. The technology allows producers to get close full-screen displays. It is important to see whether it rolls out for commercial use.
