One of the most important features, when you buy a smartphone, is the camera. It was quite shocking to see this year's Pixel 4 unable to live up to our expectations. What was even more surprising that Google couldn't bring it to India due to the Soli radar.

This year will be the third iteration of the Tech and Auto Awards which India's first Technology and Automotive Awards, celebrating the confluence of connectivity and mobility. After a stupendous first two editions, the third edition will be live on December 10 at the Lalit Hotel in New Delhi. It is expected that Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport and Highways of India and Harsh Vardhan, Minister for Science and Technology, will also be in attendance.
Huawei launched the P30 Pro which offers up to 50x zoom and incredible low light performance. No wonder it is rated as one of the best camera phones of 2019. The phone features a quad camera setup, with a 40-megapixel, 20-megapixel, 8-megapixel and a Time of Depth 3D camera all working together to take photos which can only be defined as unmatched in terms of the sheer detailing that they can reproduce. Apple also took a massive leap in terms of photography with the new iPhone 11 range with the Pro variants getting a triple camera setup along with smart HDR capabilities, merged with Apple's AI-based Deep Fusion tech.
