Sony joined the race in mid 2014 by launching the Xperia C3 (5 MP also) with a front flashlight. HTC then topped the chart by the HTC Desire Eye. As its name implies, the 'Eye' is a 13MP CMOS sensor with dual flashlight and wide-angle lens. Soon, more flagship phones start off with a 5 MP sensor (Samsung ones, iPhone 6s) while some opt for higher resolution like LG (8 MP on LG G4, G5, 5+5 MP on LG V10)
as well as Sony (13 MP on its flagships)
. Vivo V5 plus (Jan 2017) even have a Dual 20 MP + 8 MP camera.
