Only days after Apple’s launch of iPhone 11, Huawei has also announced its latest flagship phone. Huawei Mate 30 Pro is now officially out, and its main focus is definitely on the camera capabilities. It’s aimed at smartphone photographers and filmmakers, and other than the quadruple camera, it offers a range of options which help you make the best of your mages.
After the introduction of the iPhone in 2007, Apple’s smartphone presence just grew and grew, ultimately becoming the top dog in the market. But last year, Samsung knocked Apple from their throne to become the world’s most popular smartphone brand.
This year, findings published by IHS Markit shows that Apple has now also been overtaken by Huawei and Oppo, dropping Apple down into 4th place.
Google has suspended business operations with Huawei, effective immediately, according to Reuters. They say that a source close to the matter has told them Google was forced to suspend business with Huawei that “requires the transfer of hardware and software products”.
What this essentially means is that all future Hauwei products are cut off. If you already have a Huawei, though, you might be ok. Probably. At least, for now. A Google spokesperson told Reuters that “Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices”
Smartphone makers are racing who will make a phone with a better camera, and more camera modules. The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro have just joined the race, offering “phoneographers” a lot to play with. The Pro model features a four-camera setup, with the 40MP main sensor. It allows 5x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. Along with a few more specs, it really seems promising for all those who often shoot with their smartphone.
Huawei was busted two times before for passing off DSLR photos as their smartphone camera images. Well, it has happened again. To show off camera capabilities of the latest P30 phone, Huawei used stock photos, as well as a photo from someone’s portfolio. Needless to say – all of them were taken with a DSLR.
Portuguese inventor, Rui Pedro Oliveira claims that Huawei flew him to meet with them to pitch his patent pending 360 camera. He says they then ceased all contact and essentially ripped off his design in order to produce the Huawei EnVizion 360 Camera. According to an article on Fstoppers, he was then forced to sell his house in order to cover the cost of legal representation.
We’ve seen a lot of cheap smartphones pop up lately, and it appears this trend isn’t going away just yet. Just last month, Xiaomi released a $250 phone to go against the iPhone X. Then there’s also the recently unveiled Huawei Honor 10 which goes for $475. But no matter how affordable these phones may be, none of them could ever beat the price of Alcatel’s 3V. It will only sell for $150, and it comes with a dual camera.
True to its “Beauty in AI” slogan, the new Huawei Honor 10 doesn’t just boast a sleek look, but also a powerful AI-enabled camera. It has a lot of the same features that an iPhone X has, but for a far cheaper price. Let’s take a closer look and see if it’s as beautiful inside as it is on the outside.
Just like they announced earlier this year, Huawei has launched P20 Pro: the world’s first smartphone with three rear cameras co-developed with Leica. The triple-cam technology brings you 40 MP images and 5x hybrid (optical and digital) zoom. It has caused quite a hype among phone photographers and it has earned whopping 109 points at DxO. So let’s dive in and see what this new phone camera technology has to offer.
