Best upcoming camera phones 2020

The phone is a versatile technical invention, you can use it to make calls, browse social media sites, watch multimedia, play games and of course photography since it has a camera. The concept of photography has changed a lot in the many years, especially with the change of trend of companies and tend to add more lenses in phones these days, instead of the single camera we are used to, there are now phones that have a five-camera.

With the launch of a newly developed phone, everyone became focused on the device's camera. Likewise, promotion and marketing always have the primary focus on the camera. When phone makers show reporters new devices, they devote at least half the time to cameras.

Apple, Huawei and Samsung have the same focus on photography. Phone makers with smaller budgets are pushing camera features to the top of their capabilities as well in order to attract the largest number of buyers.

During technical presentations, the company talks at length about the phone's features. At least a third of the time allotted is camera talk only.

Every company can simply tell you that they have the best camera phone. In a limited sense most of them are right, although it depends on your specialties. But no phone, for example, that comes in at $800 or more has a bad camera.

So why do phone makers put so much emphasis on cameras? The obvious reason is that the cameras alone can only be major reasons to sell a phone or not.

This makes cameras and camera software a playground for creativity and innovation. Which in turn brings us to the second reason why phone makers focus so much on photography.

Let's take a look at the upcoming flagship phones, what will be their cameras and what will distinguish them in order to know what lies ahead.
