Since the “megapixel war” one of the smartphone companies warms up, 50 percent of the phones sold worldwide will have three or even camera sensors from the end of 2021, a new report by Counterpoint studies have predicted.

In 2019, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are carrying the struggle a step forward, together with the triple camera setup now becoming popular amongst the consumers.

Nearly six percent of tablets sold worldwide had three or even more back camera detectors in March 2018.

This figure is very likely to move up to 15 percent by the end of 2019 and 35 percent 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,” explained Hanish Bhatia, Senior Analyst, Devices and Ecosystem, Counterpoint Research.

Over 40 smartphones started as of April this year had three or more cameras.

One of those, 30 launches were in the first quarter (Q1) of 2019. Huawei and Samsung are leading the adoption.

The Huawei Mate and P show, the Samsung Galaxy A series, the newest Galaxy flagships, and also the Vivo V15/Pro are a number of the present models forcing the triple (and much more ) camera detector penetration.

Other OEMs, such as Apple and OnePlus, would join the bandwagon after this year, stated the report.

Smartphone players are expected to establish versions using 64MP and more from the next half (H2) of 2019.

“In 2020, we expect smartphones with camera resolutions of 100MP and more. Google does not even have dual cameras in its flagship Pixel phones and was relying on the stellar image quality through software. However, with the premium segment increasingly adopting dual camera sensors, Google will be under pressure to integrate this into their upcoming flagships,”  Bhatia added.
