These are a handful of ideas that may be tested in the coming years:
- Array cameras, from many small cameras placed in a small array, to an array of big (normal mobile size) cameras occupying large part of phone.
- Mobile phones with four cameras placed at considerable distances (like in the corners) to achieve good 3D performance
- Pop-up and other mechanically transforming cameras implementing either optical zoom feature or accommodating large sensors
- Additional wide-angle, 180 or even 360 degree cameras
- Attachable camera modules (making the device bigger but allowing better imaging)
