6 major innovations in smartphones over the past year

  1. Quad-camera

Quad-camera is a set-up of four cameras on the rear side of a mobile phone. It starts with an ultra-wide camera on top, followed by a primary camera, a macro lens and a depth sensor. It is a combination of a variety of lenses with different functions. It gives a high-resolution image with crisp shots. The depth sensor helps in creating better portraits. The ultra-wide lens can capture a bigger viewing area creating a wider image. Quad-camera has become the latest trend in smartphones.

  1. Foldable screens

The innovations in smartphones are not just limited to their features but are also expanding out to their form. The introduction of foldable phones has helped in accommodating bigger screens. Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei and others have introduced smartphone models with flexible screens in the past year. Samsung Galaxy Fold is a good example of folding smartphone. It has a 7.3 inch AMOLED display screen which gives a display of 4.6 inches when folded.

  1. Pop-up selfie camera

Selfie cameras have always been the major criterion of every cell-phone buyer. Everyone wants to buy the best camera phone. Vivo has come up with a perfect offering for the selfie-lovers in the form of a pop-up camera. It was the first brand to come up with a pop-up front camera. It has gone a step further in the past year with the introduction of a dual pop-up front camera in its smartphone model Vivo V17 Pro. The pop-up camera on this phone has a wide-angle lens for a better experience.

  1. Bezel-free smartphones

Smartphone brands are coming up with bezel-free phones. The fingerprint sensors are being placed under phone displays to let the screens cover the entire front of the devices. Vivo Nex 3 has a display that covers 99.6 % of the front of the phone. Absence of notch and a visible fingerprint sensor gives wider screen coverage.

  1. Ultra-fast charging technique

Even after the introduction of wireless charging, wired charging still holds its importance because of its speed. Ultra-fast charging technique is another innovation that smartphones have seen in the past year. Oppo has developed the SuperVOOC Flash Charge Technology that claims to charge a 4000mAh battery in just half an hour. The Realme X2 Pro comes with an impressive charging system. 

  1. Faster Artificial Intelligence chips

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is making its place in smartphones beyond basic applications. Samsung, Huawei and Apple have introduced smartphones with AI chips. These chips can perform 5 trillion operations per second and use less power to execute tasks. AI also plays a role in image recognition, speech transcription and improving photo quality.

These were some of the innovations smartphones have experienced in the past year. Best-selling smartphones in India are quite expensive. Thus, you can consider buying one of your choices without paying all amounts at once.
