According to Counterpoint, despite the lack of supply, rear cameras Smartphones are increasingly equipped with high-resolution image sensors, and this trend is gradually spreading to low-end phones as well. As mentioned, according to Counterpoint, the presence rate of 48 megapixel and higher cameras in smartphones will reach 43% in the second quarter of 2021, and if we specifically consider 64 megapixel cameras, we will face a 14% presence rate in the second quarter of this year, which is a growth. 3.5 percent compared to its acceptance season.

Ethan Qi, senior analyst at Counterpoint, said: “[Resolution] 48 and 64 megapixels have become the ubiquitous [standard] for models priced between $200 and $400, while flagship smartphones have reached large sensors that provide professional-like performance.” [cameras] offer DSLRs, of which 50 megapixel [resolution] is the most widely accepted [resolution]. Although 108-megapixel [clarity] share fell to 3.1 percent in Q2 2021, cheaper 108-megapixel 0.7-micron sensors continue to expand in mid-range models from OEMs such as Redmi and Realme.”

From Other low-resolution sensors, according to this report, have faced a mismatch in supply and demand, and thus have faced significant price increases. For example, 5 megapixel sensors should be mentioned, whose prices have increased by more than 10% since the beginning of this year. It is in this situation that low-end smartphones (with a wholesale price below $100) have started to upgrade the resolution of their main camera from 8 megapixels and less to 12-13 megapixels, so that the share of 8 megapixels and less cameras in the second quarter of 2021 will be only It has decreased by 5.9 percent. The share of 12 megapixel cameras, of course, in the second half of this year with the introduction of Galaxy Z series Samsung and family Apple’s iPhone 13 will be completely enhanced.

The story about selfie cameras is somewhat different; According to Counterpoint, the cumulative share of cameras of 20 megapixels and above in the second quarter of 2021 remained almost constant compared to the previous season, which should be related to the decrease in the sale of advanced phones in the market. Counterpoint continues to express hope that the resolution of selfie cameras will increase in the future by using a resolution of 32 or even 48 megapixels in flagship phones. The highest share among selfie cameras in the second quarter of 2021 belonged to the resolution of 8 megapixels and below, which experienced a growth of 45.2 percent, and 8 and 5 megapixel selfie cameras alone accounted for 41.7 percent of this market. Counterpoint attributes this to the strong demand for cheap phones in the second quarter of this year.

The company Samsung in September 2021 with the introduction of a 200 megapixel sensor ISOCELL HP1 opened up new possibilities for mobile imaging and Sony > also not long ago from a very large 1-inch 12-megapixel sensor on the Xperia Pro-I unveiled. In this situation, according to Counterpoint, despite the fact that mid-range to high-end phones (with wholesale prices above $200) continue to use high-resolution sensors and large sensors, this trend may change in the future due to the crisis in the shortage of parts. And the significant increase in the price of raw materials will face a noticeable slowdown.
