The Secret Technology Behind the HUAWEI P50 Pro Camera

HUAWEI P50 Pro introduces the first Dual-Matrix Camera system. Unlike other manufacturers that focus on similar improvements in each generation of smartphone camera hardware, Huawei has opted for a more integrated approach.

Yes! Huawei brings together the capabilities and sophistication of multiple lenses, a 10-channel multi-spectrum sensor, HUAWEI XD Optics as an engine that produces super-high quality images, and the True-Chroma Image Engine to create a versatile imaging solution in a slim smartphone with a stunning design. .

As we know, camera performance on smartphones is often complained of because of the use of a single lens that limits the sensor area. But on the other hand, when a smartphone enlarges the camera sensor area, the biggest challenge is outsmarting the limited space with a design that is less practical because it seems ‘big and heavy’.

Increasing the number of camera lenses, theoretically can double the light entering, and Huawei has adopted it through a combination of monochrome lenses and color lenses that can collect brightness signals at once from the RGB color model (red, green, and blue).

Although capable of refracting light at a higher rate than the human eye can, this algorithm is not without its challenges. The risk of different points of view still exists, but Huawei has innovated to minimize the impact through the AI-Raw concept.

When the shutter is pressed, the sensor will take several photos for fusion processing along with processing the image details. That way, this process can minimize the loss of electrical signal conversion that causes photos that look less sharp.

“This AI-Raw concept underlies the design of the HUAWEI P50 Pro main camera matrix as the latest flagship smartphone from Huawei, which is assembled from a combination of monochrome lenses and RGB lenses, as well as multi-spectrum sensors,” said Patrick Ru, Country Head of Huawei CBG Indonesia.

In addition, the HUAWEI P50 Pro camera also has a special color scheme for monochrome fusion that can dynamically update white balance and color correction in photos. Of course, this can improve the features of better photo scene adaptation.

Not only that, integrated with the Super High Image Processing Engine, the HUAWEI P50 Pro can also produce brighter images, and is able to shoot objects with more light entering. In the end, this is capable of producing clearer photos.

Able to create real photos up to the ability to zoom-in hundreds of times

The photography capabilities of the HUAWEI P50 Pro allow users to experience a more realistic shooting experience like using a professional camera. Practical and compact, the main camera can instantly capture a large amount of light which is directly transmitted to the semiconductor sensor to be converted into an electrical signal.

This process can make group photos using the HUAWEI P50 Pro’s main camera clearer, and even look realistic in three dimensions down to the skin texture. In addition to group photos, the benefits of the high light entering the main camera of the HUAWEI P50 Pro can also be felt for taking photos at night.

The challenge of clear boundaries between light and dark contrast is no longer a problem because the HUAWEI P50 Pro’s main camera can convert the captured light into a digital signal, which is then sent to the NPU and image signal processor (ISP) for processing.

In this way, the contrast of the brightness signal in the image is closer to the actual scene, and it is not easy to over- or underexpose. What’s more, the difference in brightness is also rated accurately to the pixel level, without worrying about problems caused by increased exposure or sensitivity.

Multi-camera collaboration feature creates clearer images

Reinforcing its commitment to leading camera innovation in the smartphone industry, Huawei has embedded a multi-camera collaboration feature on the main camera of the HUAWEI P50 Pro. For example, when using telephoto or ultra-wide shots, the related features will push the main camera also contribute to capturing more images.

In backlight conditions, the multi-camera collaboration feature can capture images with different exposures simultaneously, even in very hot lighting conditions, and is able to produce HD quality photos without losing exposure quality with dark light details.

The related algorithms work like magic, being able to reproduce the colors seen by the human eye and bring out the true colors with high-quality images. If you want to experience the P50 Pro’s powerful imaging capabilities, even before the official launch, click here.
