Demand for phones with high resolution sensors - 64MP and 108MP - helped push sales higher. Camera count was the other major factor driving sales, which kept 8MP and even 2MP sensors relevant.
SA expects these two factors - high resolutions and multiple cameras - to lead to strong growth in the second half of this year as well.
