After pressing the "mute button" at the same time in February, the major domestic mobile phone manufacturers were eager to move in March, each releasing the first flagship new products in the first half of 2020. Now that it's late in March, what other flagship phones haven't made their debut? The answer is obvious-it is none other than Huawei P40 series.
In recent years, the Huawei P series, which specializes in the field of "mobile phone imaging", has successfully established the golden signboard of "top camera phones" in the world. Each generation of Huawei P series models is the best representative of high-end, fashion, and photography.
What are the unique selling points of the upcoming Huawei P40? After the iteration of imaging technology, can I reserve the top DxO list and impress consumers to set a new benchmark for the industry? Officials seem to have given the answer.
On March 10, Huawei officially announced that the Huawei P40 series was released on March 26. In a 6-second video preview, the upper module at the corner of the fuselage was raised, occupying the visual center. It is not difficult to guess that Huawei P40 camera module may adopt a matrix layout.
On March 16, the second preheating video of Huawei P40 series was launched. The camera showed a "blue coating" solution. This will reduce the reflection of light on the refracting interface and increase the transmittance of the light, ensuring the best image quality of the lens. .
Before the press conference on March 26, the Huawei P40 series also showed a new slogan-"Witness the new standard for mobile imaging."
Yu Chengdong then reposted this Weibo post with a comment "focus on meaningful innovation", implying that Huawei P40 series has greatly improved its capabilities in terms of image innovation.
In the historical development of mobile phone camera technology, manufacturers often upgrade the camera in terms of sensors, long and short focal lengths, and controllability. The mobile phone is equipped with a high-pixel main camera and is equipped with different lens groups (wide-angle, macro, and TOF lenses). ), With AI technology, adapted to a more user-friendly camera system, to bring users a high-quality photo experience.
Or start the next milestone in video art
Relying on the technical advantages laid before in mobile phone imaging, what upgrades will Huawei P40 series bring in terms of comprehensive imaging power?
Let's guess for a moment, Huawei P40 Pro is very likely to use RYYB "outsole CMOS", so as to "depress people at the bottom level," and further upgrade the main camera pixel.
Equipped with a higher-power telephoto lens, based on the 5x, 10x, and even 50x zoom effects on the market, the Huawei P40 is very likely to make another breakthrough in the super zoom system of the previous generation P30 periscope design. Increase the telephoto lens multiples to improve clarity.
Equipped with a periscope design lens, Huawei also needs to overcome the problem of the periscope telephoto module occupying the fuselage space, which also fits with the thin and stylish fuselage design solutions of the previous P series, and looks forward to the official answer.
In addition, the Huawei P40 series should also upgrade the lens module to make the phone's dark light shooting clearer, the depth of field in dark shooting, the clarity of dim and complex light sources, and the size of the large bottom area once again improved, while ensuring color reproduction. You have to know that the P30 series' low-light shooting ability has already stood out from the crowd.
Relying on the Kirin 990 chip, AI photography performance will also be greatly improved, such as automatically identifying more life scenes, optimizing scene shooting at any time, optimizing portraits under complex ambient light, and retaining the most beautiful details of portraits.
to sum up:
Referring to the two top flagships last year-Huawei P30 Pro / Mate 30 Pro, the number of lenses started with four. The Huawei P40 Pro should also use at least a four-camera solution with standard main camera, wide-angle, periscope telephoto, and one. 3D ToF lenses.
However, in recent years, Huawei has continued to make innovations and upgrades in the field of mobile phone photography. As a cross-generation product, it is currently speculated that the possibility of the Huawei P40 Pro equipped with a five-camera module is also quite large.
In 2020, the smartphone market has also entered a new era of image upgrades. It is expected that the Huawei P40 series, which will be released on March 26, will continue to introduce new images and become watchtowers and weather vanes for the entire industry.
