Sony: Smartphones will surpass SLRs in quality

Recently, Terosh Shimizu, President and CEO of Sony Semiconductor, said he was very optimistic about the prospects of smartphone cameras.

Shimizu believes that by 2024 at the latest, two years from now, smartphones will surpass digital SLR cameras when taking photos thanks to a combination of a larger aperture, a new pixel structure and artificial intelligence technology.

At the same time, he also believes that, based on current progress in development, by 2030, smartphones are expected to implement the exclusive features of modern professional cameras, such as 8K shooting and serial shooting. Sony also plans to expand its adjacent production space by 60% by 2023 and increase the production of image sensors for smartphones.
