Evolution of smartphone cameras from pop-up camera to rotating cameras

Over the years, technology has taken the front seat in driving the community demand. And the smartphone industry has undergone a stellar revolution in understanding the consumers’ demand by revolutionising products to make life simpler. 

In just two decades, the camera definition has changed from when it was first introduced on mobile phones. From VGA cameras that garnered praise and appreciation decades ago to the present day technology-driven high-resolution pop-up camera mobiles capable of competing with DSLR cameras, the innovation has indeed come a long way. As consumer demands keep rising, the omnipresence of smartphones in one’s daily life also keeps increasing.

Evolution from pop-up camera mobiles to rotating cameras over decades:

  • Pop-up camera mobiles

The evolution started in 2010 with Apple introducing front-facing cameras. With an ever-increasing demand for a full-screen display, vivo introduced the first pop-up camera mobiles with NEX. Honor took the battle of cameras to another level, introducing the world’s first punch-hole display camera, which other brands adopted too. While vivo continued with its pop-up camera mobiles in v15 and v15 Pro, the flagship smartphones such as the OnePlus 7 series and most recently K20 series adopted the technology.

  • Shark-fin smartphone camera

While the population is still trying to adjust to pop-up camera mobiles, the Oppo Reno series brought in a shark-fin module. Offering an excellent viewing experience, the camera comes with a triple lens module on the back. It features 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 13MP telephoto lens with up to 10x hybrid lossless zoom and 8MP ultra-wide lens. It also boasts off a shark-fin mechanical pop-up module on the top with a 16MP selfie camera.

Individuals who are looking forward to purchasing this phone, but are holding back due to financial strain, can apply for Bajaj EMI Card. In simple steps, one can avail of the desired product with a pre-approved loan offer of up to Rs.2 lakh from any Bajaj Finserv partner outlets, using a convenient EMI option.

  • Motorised and rotating front camera

Asus 6Z, with its Snapdragon 855, launched its unique motorised camera in 2019. The phone features 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage and a variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The handset offers a bezel-less display, motorised dual rear camera, and a powerful battery. 

From pop-up camera phones to shark-fin and motorised camera, the smartphone industry has come a long way. One of the key market players, Samsung, further enriched the experience of using a motorised camera module with its Galaxy A80 handset and it comes under the category of best phones in India. The rotating camera had changed the traditional photo-taking experience by seamlessly capturing things around. 

The innovative camera mechanism features an exceptional triple camera experience with a high-resolution lens, both in the front and back camera. The 3D depth camera offers Live Focus video by scanning the things around through its ‘Quick Measurement’ pre-loaded app.

Courtesy these excellent specifications, such products are considerably expensive. Members of Bajaj Finserv EMI Network can purchase such high-end handsets with their Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card.
