The Huawei Mate 30 Pro promises to push the envelope of smartphone photography
Huawei appears to be the company single-handedly pushing the development of smartphone camera performance, at least in the hardware segment. Starting with last year's P20 Pro, Huawei's flagships have progressively featured class-leading camera hardware and that trend looks set to continue with the Mate 30 Pro.
According to a new report, the Mate 30 will feature two 40 MP sensors. The main shooter will be the same game-changing 40 MP RYYB sensor that debuted on the P30 Pro. The ultra-wide-angle camera is the more interesting one, as it's said to also be a 40 MP 1/1.7" sensor.
Ultra-wide-angle shooters are generally much worse than the main cameras but, if this rumor turns out to be accurate, the Mate 30 Pro could have an ultra-wide-angle shooter that outperforms the main sensor on most other flagships.
Both shooters are expected to have a new Cine Lens feature for video recording. Huawei phones have received flak for sub-par video recording and we could finally see improvement in that department.
The telephoto lens is expected to be an 8 MP sensor capable of taking 5X optical zoom shoots, just like the P30 Pro.
