The full-screen architecture in the mobile industry, to some degree, drives innovative growth.
One factor that definitely remoulds how we click photos is mobile camera technology. OEMs also revolutionised camera sensors in the age of click-and-forget. High resolution cameras such as the 108MP sensor we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and the Xiaomi Mi 10 were launched in the year 2020.
