Immersed in the search of the number 1 of the market of smartphones and having shown that the most compensated ranges and with competitive prices are given more than good, Huawei definitely lacked a cutting-edge flagship , that phone on which to look and with which to compete against all without complexes.
A smartphone that the Chinese giant has finally achieved, and that under the name of Huawei P20 Pro dares to leave us speechless with the best paint job never made on a glass phone, but above all, dares to innovate with an unprecedented triple camera photographic system that surely places it on the highest step of the podium in mobile photography.
There is no doubt in this section, the photographic possibilities of Huawei’s P20 Pro leave it only in the market , at least if we attend Specifications and cold numbers:
Triple sensor (1x RGB 40 megapixel and aperture f / 1.8; 1x 20 megapixel monochrome and aperture f / 1.6; 1x 8 megapixel telephoto lens and aperture f / 2.4).
Leica Vario-Summilux-H optics.
Color temperature sensor.
Hybrid autofocus by laser sensor and phase detection.
Hybrid zoom of 5 increases.
4K video and in ‘slow motion’ at 960 fps / 720p.
A more than remarkable configuration that allows the Huawei flagship to do Optical zoom up to 5 magnifications , improve in night shots thanks to the black and white sensor with greater aperture, and above all to make Huge photos without loss of detail .
However, probably the most vaunted function is that of portrait mode with blur ‘bokeh’ , a novelty in the industry that came hand in hand with dual camera systems, and that Huawei has taken a step further thanks to artificial intelligence and a novel system of three sensors with a telephoto lens.
Artificial intelligence to master all the photos
Be that as it may, in the implementation of Huawei does not play only the hardware, because the Chinese manufacturer has achieved a very interesting symbiosis between photographic system and NPU so that artificial intelligence dominates the experience.
The goal of Huawei is that basic users, those who would only use the camera in automatic mode, also get more professional results thanks to an intelligent assistant that is responsible for choosing scene and parameters to improve photography automatically.
There are four applications developed by Huawei to take advantage of AI in the photographic section:
4D Predictive Approach – The camera is able to focus instantly, and also follows the focused object autonomously thanks to a prediction of its movements.
Recognition of Scenes .- The smartphone analyzes the scene and suggests the correct way to take the photo with the best possible quality. Obviously the user can choose a mode manually.
Assisted Composition .- The application analyzes the photograph and indicates to the user how to frame the image to comply with the basic rules without having to be a professional photographer.
Stabilization with AI .- This system allows taking long exposure photographs of up to eight seconds without the need of a tripod, because the phone is able to predict our movements and stabilize the image or video.
The camera of the Huawei P20 Pro is capable of recognize up to 33 images per second and define if we are photographing a landscape at sunset, a car in motion or a close-up of a flower, and can adapt to the environment so that our photos are always perfect without learning curve, without photography courses and without us having to intervene more than to take the photo itself.
Blur ‘bokeh’ powered by IA
Well, yes ‘bokeh’ is the star of mobile photography in recent times and the Huawei P20 Pro has similar capabilities, the union could only go well and the best smartphone in Huawei’s history is one of the best when it comes to taking portraits with blur
The main sensor RGB 40 megapixels in this case helps the monochrome sensor with greater aperture, which allows to capture more light and better balance the photograph. The telephoto lens with aperture f / 2.4 does the rest when it comes to getting that blur of the fund that the market likes so much, and does so selectively even after the image is taken.
Artificial intelligence puts the cherry , because thanks to it the triple camera signed by Leica can automatically choose the scene, parameterize the shot with the best possible balance, and even tell the user the best framing so that the result is impressive.
It’s the smartphone itself, thanks to the AI, which focuses automatically and instantaneously , detecting that it is a portrait and allowing the user to choose the level of background blur. In addition, the Intelligent stabilizer and predictive approach they make the take as clean as possible, all by free hand and without the user intervening directly in the processes.
The only thing you will have to do is pick up your smartphone, open the camera and take the picture , obviously attending to the advice that will be offered by the application of the camera developed by Huawei, but without needing to learn the concepts of a professional.
Certainly something interesting to see how machine learning processes are applied to daily use that any of us can give to a phone, and certainly more than interesting to see how artificial intelligence makes its way into smartphones to provide them with even greater functionality.
Above all because What the AI does is transparent to the user and without any learning curve. It will be the smartphone that “thinks” for us … What more can we ask?
