Huawei’s next P40 series could be equipped with a 52-megapixel Sony IMX700 CMOS image sensor
Huawei’s next P40 series could be equipped with a vastly improved camera configuration, according to a new report.
GizChina said the P40 will be equipped with a 52-megapixel Sony IMX700 CMOS (1/133-inch) image sensor. It is a customized version of the new IMX686, which is reaching many flagship phones 2020. The report suggested that this sensor not only provides larger pixels, but also better images in low light conditions.
It is also said that the Huawei P40 series features a 16-pixel binning, which combines 16 adjacent pixels to form a 4.48 m “superpixel”. If it’s true, it will be the first smartphone to do so. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra offers a pixel size of up to 2.4m, combining nine adjacent pixels.
You can also expect an array of RYYB colors instead of the standard Bayer RGGB filter, allowing 40% more light and a more accurate color balance than what you see on most phones. The main camera will also be helped by an ultra-wide sensor, a variable telephoto lens and a 3D ToF sensor. The P40 could also have more ISOthan the P30 Pro, which can reach up to 4,09,600.
Finally, Huawei is likely to load its next flagship series with data intelligence-based shooting modes and video enhancements. We’ll probably know first, as the Huawei P range usually debuts in March and could very well appear in the coming weeks. Source:GizChina
