Huawei is expected to launch the P60 series in China next week. Accordingly, many teasers of the new flagship Huawei P60 Pro are appearing every day. Just like today’s official video about the zoom functions on the Chinese social media platform Weibo. According to Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei China, the Huawei phone can take pictures with both the sun and the moon in focus without losing detail in the rest of the photos.
The Huawei P60 Pro is even said to take detailed photos in almost complete darkness when the subject is lit from behind. An official video also suggests that very detailed images of the moon are possible. Thanks to suitable software algorithms, the cameras even circumvent the theoretical laws of optics and physics.
Aside from the claims about the moon shots, Huawei will incorporate a new type of periscope lens. This zoom lens should be one reason for the better night photos. The new OV64B sensor uses an RYYB array, thus replacing a green pixel with a yellow one. This allows the sensor to capture more light in poorly lit scenes. Huawei combines the associated 6P lens with 3.6x zoom with optical image stabilization.
The other cameras on the Huawei P60 Pro include a 50-megapixel main camera with a 1/1.4-inch Sony IMX888 sensor and a variable aperture of f/1.4-4.0. The third camera will be an ultra-wide lens, also with 50 megapixels on a 1/2.51-inch Sony IMX858 sensor. The setup goes very well with the P series, where Huawei has traditionally prioritized the cameras and its latest innovations in photography.
