It is the mobile that almost everyone speaks at the moment, and possibly for two reasons. The first, which is the latest high range that has stepped on the smartphone market. The second, that his camera has obtained positive and good ratings are his results, and that has got the Huawei P20 Pro in the battle for being the best photographic smartphone of the year.
Now, as it should be after every big launch, iFixit has disassembled the terminal to develop its traditional reparability test. It can not be said that the P20 Pro is going to be easy to fix since it ties with a 4/10 with the Galaxy S9 + that was presented in February, but this test has allowed us to access the bowels of the device and be able to see its camera. The triple camera of the Huawei P20 Pro, uncovered.
This is how the triple camera of the Huawei P20 Pro works
Regardless of the power, design or artificial intelligence software that accompanies the device, the camera is the real claim of the new Huawei P20 Pro. A triple configuration, the first on the market, with a lens for each of the uses that can Give yourself to dual cameras today. A combination to offer everything on the same mobile phone.[bs-quote quote=”With the triple camera of the Huawei P20 Pro, we have all the options in one: classic photographs, black and white, blur and optical zoom.” style=”style-14″ align=”center”][/bs-quote]
The Huawei P20 Pro has the main lens of 40 megapixels, which can compose a 10-megapixel image with Light Fusion technology if we wish, and that has an aperture f / 1.8. The second sensor, 20 megapixels and aperture f / 1.6, is already a brand of the house: it is responsible for taking black and white photographs. The third, 8 megapixels and aperture f / 2.4 for a telephoto lens. That is for optical zoom.
Thanks to this combination, the Huawei P20 Pro can offer captured photographs directly in black and white, without filters, it can offer to blur of the background thanks to software-generated bokeh and depth reading, and can offer several zoom levels. Namely, the optical zoom of 3 times, hybrid zoom of 5 times and the digital zoom of 10 times. Here we put the camera to the test to see what it was able to offer us.
Triple lens and triple optical stabilization?
But the cutting of components of iFixit has helped us to know more about this camera, although it is not official data and, therefore, we must go with feet of lead. The main one, Huawei said that only the telephoto lens, the 10-megapixel lens, had optical stabilization while the other two relied on artificial intelligence software to offer electronic stabilization controlled by the Kirin 970.
According to iFixit, each of the lenses seems to be stabilized mechanically. We would be, therefore, before a triple OIS deactivated for some reason that only Huawei knows. Maybe reserve it for a functionality that will be activated by software later, with an update. As we say, it is the word of iFixit against that of Huawei.
The breakdown shows us more clearly the situation of the three cameras. Observing the front of the Huawei P20 Pro, we would have the monochrome lens on the left, the main lens in the center and the telephoto lens on the right. Both connected to the phone with a pair of connectors, forming a single photographic body for the back of the phone.[bs-quote quote=”iFixit has believed to detect a triple optical stabilization system in the P20 Pro, although Huawei only mentions it for the 10-megapixel telephoto.” style=”style-14″ align=”center”][/bs-quote]
As an iFixit account, the P20 Pro from Huawei has multiple focusing systems. We have laser focus, depth focuses thanks to its triple lens system and also focus on phase detection. One more, a focus by contrast. All of them rest on the phone’s software, which is supported in turn by the NPU chip of neural processing included in the Kirin 970.
Each lens needs its own sensor, and for the 40-megapixel lens, we have a 1 / 1.7-inch sensor, which we already put in front of the 1 / 1.5-inch sensor of the Lumia 1020. This sensor is capable of capturing images with a maximum ISO of 102,400, which makes the camera perform under good conditions despite the low ambient light.
