– Additional Camera Lenses
Ideas on new smartphone specifications have reduced, but many manufacturers believe that camera lenses are where they could put the focus on. At first, there were the dual-lens cameras that were followed by triple-lens cameras and later quad-lens cameras. In 2019, we could see more. Although no company has publicly declared of this, LG has been seen on several occasions working on a patent phone that has a hexa-lens camera(16 lenses). Other manufacturers might borrow this idea and use it to build extra lenses on their phones’ cameras.
The smartphone camera technology lacks real depth, and these additional lenses provide features like background smoothing, anti-shake measures, optical zoom, and improved HDR production by using data from several lenses instead of one. Google, however, prefers to make use of the image-processing advanced software for its Pixel phones.

Also, your phone doesn’t require to upload the recognition functions to the cloud. Therefore, results are achieved faster, and the response is immediate.
The software will also be highly improved since Siri, Bixby and other google assistants will continue to be smart. It will be no surprise that many great innovations will be on the software side more than the hardware side in 2019.
