Huawei Working on Liquid Lens For P50 Pro+ Debuting In June
A long time ago there were rumors that the new Huawei P50 series flagship to be launched in the first half of this year would be expected to debut with liquid lens technology. However, Xiaomi officially brought Xiaomi’s first foldable display flagship MIX FOLD, which is equipped with a liquid lens using the “bionic” principle, which can simulate the human eye to achieve a change in focus, making the same lens both telephoto and macro functions, enhancing the function while also saving internal space.
At present Xiaomi, MIX FOLD is also the only model in the industry that uses this technology, but this status quo may be broken by Huawei. According to reports brought by well-known blogger Digital Chat Station: “Huawei’s liquid lens has also been tested for a long time, the current industry chain side of the supporting program is mostly medium telephoto, do the middle of the articulated focal length is also not bad”.
This means that the next upcoming appearance of the Huawei P50 series is expected to be equipped with a liquid lens, the most promising models are currently seen to be equipped with the top-end model Huawei P50 Pro+.
It is reported that Huawei working on liquid lens a long time ago, data show that Huawei on December 25, 2019, had applied for a patent, the development of its liquid lens can not only bring two-in-one shooting effect but also achieve faster-focusing speed, can be like the human eye to achieve millisecond focus, film rate of almost 100%. Compared to the traditional optical lens, a liquid lens can not only improve the image capabilities but also reduce the weight of the phone, improve the phone lens bulge serious situation, the whole design may also take a new step. More details, we’ll see.
Besides, the Huawei P50 series may also be the world’s first with IMX800 sensor, with 1/1.18-inch large bottom (earlier expected 1-inch size), which is also the largest bottom of Sony’s sensor ever, can bring more excellent noise control, color performance, and other effects, to provide more excellent picture quality. At the same time, the large bottom will inevitably also bring higher light sensitivity, with Huawei’s unique RYYB arrangement, night shooting ability will be upgraded again, becoming a new generation of night vision.
Huawei consumer business software department president, AI, and intelligent all-scene business department director Wang Chenglu recently announced that the new Huawei HarmonyOS will be in public beta in June, providing upgrades for several models; by the end of this year, there will be at least 300 million cell phones, tablets, and other IoT devices equipped with Harmony OS.
Sources claim that Huawei MatePad Pro 2 and Huawei P50 may be postponed to June because of the need to adopt a better HarmonyOS system and also to allow time to increase stock availability, so there will be other new launches coming in June besides HarmonyOS, and it will be a month where Huawei will focus on many activities.
In other words, Huawei’s HarmonyOS system will be available in beta for some models at the end of this month (currently only developer beta), such as the Mate X2, P40 series, and Mate 40 series, Huawei MatePad Pro 2 is already in the network, and Huawei HarmonyOS Beta 3.0 was pushed to developers at the end of March, so it’s not too far away.
