Beautiful is the comment of a lot of people when seeing the latest leak images of Huawei‘s next high-end smartphone.
Continuing the successful design of its predecessor in early 2018, the P30 Pro still seems to express the luxury of the P20 Pro, with a smaller notch. But this design may not be really appealing, the main feature of the product proves that smartphone manufacturers can cram more cameras into their small handsets.
Huawei is always proud of the camera on its products. Although not the first company to launch dual camera trends, the company actually makes good use of dual camera setup and improve images quality. The company made a leap to 3 cameras with P20 Pro. While Samsung is the first company to launch a 4-camera smartphone, the P30 Pro will make a big difference in quality.
According to rumors, only three of the four cameras on the back of the P30 Pro can actually be usable. The fourth camera is reported to be the ToF sensor commonly used for 3D mapping in VR and AR. Strangely, this seems to be a new popular feature on many Chinese phones, but no company can take full advantage of it.
The leaked images also showed a strange change on the face of the phone. The wide Notch of the P20 Pro will cease to exist and be replaced by a single U-shaped teardrop-shaped notch. This leads to many questions about whether the P30 Pro has advanced 3D face recognition sensor?
The design of the Huawei P30 Pro is admittedly beautiful but the sensor length on the back of it almost starts to become ridiculous. When Nokia 9 with the penta lens is coming, this trend is hard to end and then many questions arised: when is the number of back lenses is enough? We are really don’t know
A Weibo user, who has a lot of information about the camera sensor and has revealed a lot of white paper, has posted some details about an upcoming Sony sensor: the IMX607.
He said that this could be the main sensor on the Huawei P30 Pro in the future.
The 1 / 1.8 “IMX607, which measures 38MP, goes in the same direction as the IMX600 sensor on the Huawei P20 Pro this year, but adds a row of white pixels alongside conventional RGB pixels. Instead of using Quad Bayer technology, the sensor is based on Dual Bayer technology with a white band of HDR Coding.
In comparison, the current Sony IMX600 sensor on the P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro use two color pixels for long exposure and two other color pixels for short exposure, then combine them. to improve the light sensitivity range. The layout of the new pixels on the IMX607 will change slightly from the original: still those pixels, just sort of different.
In theory, this new arrangement would allow the camera to use white pixels to capture more light, achieving better sharpness and detail without adding a black and white sensor. It also improves nighttime photography. And to increase the speed and accuracy of autofocus, Sony has equipped this sensor with Quad Pixel (QPDAF) -based metering.
Other sensor parameters include high signal-to-noise ratio that delivers impressive low light performance, reduced chromatic aberration, and integrated light and temperature sensors. . The above mentioned letter also said the IMX607 sensor is specially designed for night shooting and has an ISO of 50/500/5000 respectively.
It is still early to confirm whether the documents are genuine or fake, and whether the sensor will be equipped for Huawei’s next flagship. Let’s wait and see! We are all eager to see what they are going to offer the smartphone market
