Samsung, Apple and LG flagships' camera game to step up drastically in 2019

It was two Chinese companies that unveiled pioneering triple-lens and 3D-sensing rear phone cameras with Huawei's P20 Pro, and the Oppo R17 Pro, respectively, but next year all major phone manufacturers will follow suit. This claim comes courtesy of Korean media reports that cite camera component industry insiders who are evidently happy about the extra business this trend will bring.

Both LG Innotek and Samsung Electro-Mechanics, the camera sensor divisions, are expected to get an influx of orders as the respective companies' flagships are going to be equipped with tri-camera setups, tip the insiders. According to Kim Ji-san, an analyst from Kiwoom Investment & Securities:


The triple-camera revolution that started with the P20 Pro will continue as soon as the last quarter of this year, with the LG V40 expected to sport five cameras in total. That goes for the midrange Galaxy A-series, too, which this year will be announced as the first Samsung phones with triple cameras. This is in line with Samsung's newly-minted strategy to combat the smartphone market stagnation by introducing some high-end features to its cheaper midrange lines. The triple-lens torch will be carried over by the Galaxy S10 early next year, tip analysts, at least its most high-end version.

The Galaxy S10 is supposed to land the Holy Grail of lens technologies in one handset - a main 12 wide-angle camera, a super wide-angle 16MP one, and a 13 MP telephoto cam for what will likely be at least 3x optical zoom efforts.

Apple, on the other hand, is expected to usher in the mass adoption of 3D-sensing cameras with its high-end 2019 iPhone model. That extra iPhone camera won't only serve photographic duties, as in Samsung or LG's handsets, but bring a shift to augmented reality and gesture navigation shenanigans. In any case, camera component makers are gearing up for orders bonanza, says said Park Hyeong-woo, an analyst from Shinhan Investment:
