Engadget publishes an article "The future of the smartphone camera: where next?" There are no big revelations in the list of innovations:
  • Augmented reality
  • Dual-lens cameras
  • Better lenses
  • 4K recording
  • Thermal imaging
  • Optical zoom
  • 360 video
Meanwhile, Strategy Analytics sees mobile imaging future in 3D cameras:

"Sales of 3D Imaging smartphones are poised to take off. Advanced security and Augmented Reality (AR) solutions will be the main drivers. We predict that 3D Imaging will see over 1700% growth during next six years and will become one of the key differentiators in higher-end smartphones."

On the other hand, analysts do not give a significance to other stuff:
  • No interest in Visible Light Communication (VLC, LiFi)
  • No higher resolution push. 41MP in old Nokia phones remains the world's record forever
  • No high speed imaging future. Sony Xperia 960fps camera does not attract analysts attention
