Ever since smartphones started incorporating cameras, even photographers have bid adieu to their bulky devices. And why not? Mobile phones today sport the latest technology, are lightweight and can click flawless images with superb quality that pack a punch. They also offer the advantage of clicking on the go, instant sharing on social media apps and are also beginner-friendly unlike the nuances of a DSLR that take time to master.
Pick any Oppo mobile under 10000 and you will be taken aback by the camera specifications that it has to offer at such budget-friendly prices. However, companies are working towards manufacturing devices with breakthrough technologies that challenge the best cameras and offer you cutting edge imaging in your pocket.
More lenses at the back:
Smartphones with quad camera set-up at the back have become a norm, however, brands might also launch a higher number of rear lenses to amp up the competition. Take for instance Nokia, which already launched the Nokia 9 Pureview with 5 rear lenses with optics supported by Zeiss. The device can take images simultaneously capturing 10 times more light than an average phone, thanks to the greater number of cameras. It is an excellent example of computational photography, the ability to stitch photos together using a newer chip processor.
108 megapixel sensor:
2020 is all set to witness mobiles with a 108MP sensor that might become commonplace in the next few years. Mi Note 10 from Xiaomi launched recently proudly sports the sensor, while brands such as Realme and Samsung are also close behind. Realme X50 and Samsung Galaxy S11 series set for a lunch in 2021 are proof enough Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor with a resolution of 108MP will power the Realme X50, while a Bright HMX sensor will be at the heart of the optical power of the Galaxy S11 series.
Image stabilization as well as automated tracking of the subject assisted by artificial intelligence are two significant areas which are increasingly becoming critical to photography and videography in smartphones. To minimise blurry images due to movement during clicking a photograph or hand shaking, some mobile phones combine the power of motion sensor data and jitter-resistant cameras together in their optical set-up. These help provide flawless, picture perfect images and are ideal even for beginners. The phones under 10000 of the future will not only detect multiple people in a frame but also sharply focus on their faces without having to manually do so, given the pace at which technology is developing.
Smartphones in the high-end segment could also be converted into tools for video recording with the precision of a professional. Snapdragon 865-powered phones from Qualcomm would record videos at 8K resolution. This is higher than what a television or for that matter movie theater projectors can manage. These phones will also be enabled for Dolby Vision-certified 4K HDR videos, making them a technologically savvy substitute for standalone camcorders of the past that have now become obsolete.
This ability of the cameras of future phones can not only scan real time objects into 3D versions but also bring 3D representations of scenes to life. Apple is believed to add a camera to the back of its upcoming devices which can scan objects within a range of 15 feet and utilize depth sensing. Incorporation of all these technologies in the smartphones of the future is all set to revolutionize them beyond just clicking selfies.
