ALMOST ALL SMARTPHONE CAMERA LENSES ARE PLASTIC

Marques Brownlee published a quick review of the Sony Xperia Pro-i smartphone, which has a 1-inch camera sensor, and he disclosed something I didn’t know. Almost all current smartphones employ plastic lens components instead of glass in their camera lenses. This information came as a surprise to me because I assumed that all camera lenses, whether from handheld cameras or smartphones, were constructed of super-polished glass.

Don’t Miss:

It seemed sensible to contact Zeiss and inquire about the lens production process, as well as if Nokia smartphones use plastic lens elements. Well, Zeiss confirmed it (I’d post a screenshot of the response, but I don’t have Zeiss’ permission to do so).

Today’s smartphones, according to Zeiss, necessitate exceedingly complicated high-resolution lens elements that must be compressed into a very compact space in order to produce sharp photos. To do so, double-aspherical lens elements must be created, which is impossible to achieve using optical glass. As a result, today’s smartphone camera modules are made of molded plastic materials.

However, Sony succeeded to make its Xperia Pro-i camera the best in the smartphone world by using genuine glass lens elements. As a result, the Xperia Pro-i is a fantastic smartphone that costs up to 1800 USD.

This doesn’t surprise me, because I believe such plastic materials have excellent light diffusing capabilities, resulting in clean, clear shots.
