Huawei P40: New line may bring Sony's 52 megapixel IMX700 sensor

With the new line tops from Samsung and Xiaomi officially launched, it seems that new information comes to confirm that Huawei does not follow the trend of cameras over 100 megapixels.

However, this does not mean that we will not have new technologies embedded in the next models of the Chinese giant Huawei.

The Huawei P40 line famous for always bringing news when it comes to the set of cameras. According to the latest rumors, the top of the line of Huawei's next generation smartphones may come equipped with the Sony IMX700 52-megapixel sensor.

You may be wondering, but this is less than half the resolution of the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. But there is a peculiarity in this new sensor from Sony, in addition to bringing the same RYYB color filter that we find in Huawei P30 Pro, rumors suggest that the Sony IMX700 adopts a sensor with a area of ??1 / 1.33 with support for 16 pixel rating technology (44).

In other words, while the Xiami Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro bring a quadpixels solution (2×2) and the Galaxy S20 Ultra brings a new 3×3 pixel combination pattern, combining 9 pixels to a general 1 pixels larger, the Sony sensor present in the next P40 Pro, combine 16 pixels to create a pixel much larger than that present in direct competitors.

We will have a 4.48 m pixel on the P40 Pro, while we have a 2.4 m pixel on the Galaxy S20 ultra and a 1.6 m pixel on the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. Therefore, according to the information released until now, the next flagship of the Huawei P40 series should have an advantage over the other two devices recently announced.

Sony's larger single pixel size of 4.48 m would be able to produce better images in low light conditions. Finally, the P40 Pro must also be equipped with a 40-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 10x variable periscopic lens and a ToF sensor.

We have already said that Huawei would not enter this war for "the more megapixels the better" after all we have known for a long time that an excellent capture is not just the amount of megapixels delivered by a sensor. Many other variables are involved in delivering the best photo.
