Smartphone Camera

Smartphones have become a vital part of most people’s life. Be it in terms of quality, design, performance, features, or camera, all of these are packed in today’s phone. Over the last two years, Artificial Intelligence has also become an enormous part of how you use your smartphone. Smartphone manufacturers like Oppo, Apple, and Huawei are leveraging AI in their offerings, and all now contain special hardware, designed to conduct AI-based tasks more efficiently, especially in the camera segment. AI is enhancing the hardware and software within mobile phones with implications for marketers and consumers making our life easier.

Here are 6 ways where ai is playing a role in smartphone cameras

AI is already in the camera of most smartphones. AI adjusts the type of filter used to give you the best result and also helps to identify whether you are snapping a panorama or a person. It also helps you find the right lens for the light condition.

Photo Filtering

AI cameras can learn their environment. So all the undesired objects in the scene are eliminated when a photo is taken in a particular setting. When AI becomes familiar with these objects in the scene it happens gradually and this learning is done by a powerful GPU present in the phone.

Picture Enhancement

Pictures captured from a poorly lit or dark environment are retouched with AI algorithms that work on camera elements such as exposure and ISO. And that’s where AI comes into play in low light photography and this feature is generally present in the flagship, top-end smartphones.

Dept Effect

The concept of the dept effect is the most astounding feature found in phones today. With this feature, the background is made blurry to provide a feeling of ‘dept’ in the photo. ML algorithm is used to provide this effect.

Smoother Camera Performance

Without compromising picture quality AI cameras get a boost in capturing a string of photos in quick succession. ML algorithms in the top end paves way for a buttery smooth operation in clicking photos through optimization. Overall performance is not affected since these powerful smartphones house powerful SOC.

Computational Photography

Digital image processing techniques that use computer algorithms constitute computational photography and are prevalent in the latest digital devices. Computational photography uses machine vision software to enhance what photos are captured. It offers a lot of processing power to support these image processing algorithms and improving images by reducing motion blur and adding simulated depth of field


AI is everywhere even your smartphone’s software claims to use Artificial Intelligence to make decisions on your behalf. AI identifies objects and scenes in your pictures and suggests lenses for comic and creative impact. AI is increasingly being used not only in smartphone cameras but in all kinds of cameras. AI is used in photo-editing, to meld, enhance and augment reality to make more intelligent object selections. Artificial intelligence is quickly becoming an overused term in the world of photography.
