Image Sensors Europe conference publishes an interview with Atsushi Kobayashi, Senior Image Sensor Specialist from Huawei, talking about the future trends for smartphones. Few quotes:
"Most of key players like Huawei are eager to find out new camera feature and new key technology which improves camera performance.
Another area we are very excited about is ‘depth sensing’, especially due to the current demand for AR/VR applications. We anticipate in the next few years 3D cameras will become standard on all smart phones.
Improvements of pixel performance is still important, especially as Huawei is very open to new ideas which improves camera especially image sensor."
