The Huawei P30 Pro is probably one of the first smartphones with a new camera sensor from Sony. This 38 megapixel sensor makes better photos in low light situations.
‘Huawei P30 Pro camera sensor known’
Huawei equips its next top device with an IMX607 image sensor from Sony, claims sources on Weibo . The Huawei P30 Pro becomes the first smartphone with this image sensor. The technique behind the sensor is similar to the camera used by the company in the Huawei P20 Pro although some significant improvements have been made.
Where the current Huawei device still uses Quad Bayer technology, the IMX607 sensor uses Dual Bayer with more white pixels that capture extra light. In layman’s terms: the new camera can handle more light and detail even with a shorter shutter speed. This gives you sharper, more beautiful photos in situations with less light.
No monochrome lens, but 4 cameras
Now Huawei uses an extra monochrome sensor to collect more image information. The P20 Pro has a 20 megapixel black / white lens, the image of which is automatically combined with the primary sensor. The new sensor makes that extra camera unnecessary.
Other sources claim, however, that the Huawei P30 Pro has three or even four cameras on the back. Probably Huawei replaces the monochrome sensor with a wide-angle lens, with which you shoot broader photos. The company recently did so on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro .
According to Sony, the IMX607 sensor also has technology that provides faster, more accurate autofocus. In addition, the noise in the image is further limited. Furthermore, sensors are built in that can measure temperature and light, where the camera settings can be automatically adjusted.
Further details about the Huawei P30 Pro are still unknown. The smartphone will probably be presented in early 2019. Chances are that the Huawei P30, P30 Lite and P30 Pro will see the light of day at the Mobile World Congress at the end of February
