The modern smartphone is laden with sensors for detecting a range of factors including position, location, altitude, ambient light, temperature and proximity to other objects, along with many others. Smartphones are incredibly complex and able to detect and process amazing amounts of information about their environment. In the era of AI, sensors are an integral part of modern handsets, providing vast amounts of information on surroundings and usage.

Strategy Analytics' Emerging Device Technologies research practice, in a new report Global Smartphone Embedded Sensors Forecast: 2008 to 2023, drills down into the evolution of sensors in handsets and the companion processors that power them.
