According to the report, another factor that is driving the market is the consumer preference for camera spec upgrades so brands are focusing on enhancing the specs of high-end models. For example, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has the Tetraprism zoom lens, which will be used by more iPhone 16 Pro models. Vivo’s Y200 smartphone has a 64MP main camera, whereas most brands have scaled down the camera specs for their entry-level models.

However, the market is also facing challenges like cost issues. Android brands have different solutions for mid-range and high-end models. The future depends on how brands and consumers balance cost and performance.
