    Counterpoint Research Collection on Thursday, November 11, 2021 (November 20, 1400) in a new report on the presence of high-resolution cameras in smartphones. According to the statistics of this collection, in 43% of the smartphones sold in the second quarter of 2021, the main camera with a resolution of 48 megapixels and more was used, which is compared to the first quarter of this year, when 38.7% of the phones used this resolution for their main camera. The increase has completely increased. This trend is important because we are currently in the midst of a pervasive global component shortage crisis that has apparently not yet affected cell phone cameras.

    According to Counterpoint, the rear cameras of smartphones are increasingly becoming more sensitive They are equipped with high-resolution images, and this trend is expanding moment by moment into low-cost, low-end handsets. As mentioned, the presence of 48-megapixel and higher cameras in smartphones in the second quarter of 2021, according to Counterpoint, will reach 43%, and if we specifically consider 64-megapixel cameras, we will see a presence of 14% in the second quarter of this year. 3.5% compared to the accepted season.

    Ethan Qi, senior analyst at Counterpoint, says:" [Resolution] 48 and 64-megapixels have become ubiquitous for models priced between $ 200 and $ 400, while flagship smartphones are equipped with large sensors that deliver professional performance such as DSLRs, with 50 megapixels being the highest resolution. [Resolution] accepted. "Although the share of 108 megapixels [resolution] fell to 3.1 percent in the second quarter of 2021, the cheaper 0.8-megapixel 108-megapixel sensors continue to expand into mid-range models from OEMs such as redmi and relay."

    Other low-resolution sensors, according to the report, have faced problems with supply and demand mismatches, and thus have seen significant price increases. For example, we should mention the 5-megapixel sensors, the price of which has increased by more than 10% since the beginning of this year. It is in this context that low-end smartphones (with wholesale prices below $ 100) have upgraded their main camera resolution from 8 megapixels and less to 12 to 13 megapixels, to the point that the share of 8 megapixels and less cameras in the second quarter of 2021 alone Decreased by 5.9%. The share of 12-megapixel cameras, of course, will increase completely in the second half of this year with the introduction of Samsung's Galaxy Z series handsets and Apple's iPhone 13 family.

    The story about selfie cameras is somewhat different; According to Counterpoint, the cumulative share of 20-megapixel and higher cameras in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the previous quarter has remained almost constant, which should be attributed to the decline in sales of high-end phones in the market. Counterpoint further hopes that the resolution of selfie cameras will increase in the future with the use of 32 or even 48 megapixel resolution in flagship phones. The highest share among selfies in the second quarter of 2021 was at 8 megapixels and below, which grew by 45.2 percent, and their 8 and 5 megapixel selfies accounted for only 41.7 percent of this market. Counterpoint attributes this to strong demand for cheap handsets in the second quarter of this year.

    New potentials opened up for mobile imaging, and Sony recently unveiled a very large 1-megapixel 1-inch sensor on the Xperia Pro-I. In this situation, according to Counterpoint, although mid-range to advanced handsets (with wholesale prices above $ 200) continue to use high-resolution sensors and large sensors, this trend may be in the future due to the crisis in the parts shortage. And a significant increase in raw material prices to face a significant slowdown.
