There is no doubt that the Huawei P20 Pro and the rest of the P20 family members have become the most talked about terminals during this year 2018. Huawei has not only been concerned with incorporating an outstanding technical section in its latest terminals, it has also opted to introduce innovation real as Artificial Intelligence thanks to a dedicated neuronal chip that accompanies the Kirin 970 processor, or The best photographic system we’ve seen on a mobile.
For the development of the three-camera system of the Huawei P20 Pro, the brand has partnered with Leica Once again, the prestigious German company has been dedicating decades to the manufacture of high precision lenses and optical instruments, and now its technology is incorporated in one of the most innovative telephones of 2018.
And is that Leica is responsible for some of the most important advances in the field of photography . Among its cameras, we find pieces that are true historical pieces and have been used by world-renowned photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Robert Frank, Robert Capa, Bruce Gilden, Bruce Davidson, Inge Morath, Martine Franck, Sebastião Salgado, Alex Webb, Joel Meyerowitz, Garry Winogrand, Mark Cohen and Ralph Gibson.
Leica and Huawei: this is how one of the best mobile cameras in the world has been created
Given the importance of mobile photography in the present, Leica could not leave the opportunity to demonstrate his experience and journey in this important sector, and he has done it in the best way possible: collaborating with Huawei. The German brand has been chosen to design and refine the cameras of the latest Huawei models, including the Huawei P20 Pro and its triple camera system .
Beyond a great system of sensors and lenses, Leica and Huawei rely on the artificial intelligence provided by the Kirin 970 , with the aim of offering perfect photographs and a simple user experience. In addition, since the processes do not depend on the cloud, it is possible to generate the perfect photograph in an offline manner thanks to the Neuronal Processing Unit.
This dedicated chip is able to act like a human brain, learning over time and being able to control many aspects of photography automatically so that the user only has to worry about pointing and shooting. From detecting the scene to photographing intelligently, to making nocturnal captures without the need for a tripod, among many other options.
As for the camera itself, the importance of Leica in the design and development of the photographic system is more than evident. Thanks to her, the Huawei P20 Pro has obtained a score of 109 points in the DxOMark photography test, and 102 points in the case of the Huawei P20.
Speaking of the system itself, the Huawei P20 Pro mounts to its back a 40 megapixel RGB main sensor , which accompanies a secondary sensor of 20 megapixels monochrome , and an 8 megapixel telephoto lens. We also found a sensor capable of measuring the temperature of the color, and some apertures of f / 1.8, 1.6 and 2.4 respectively.
Of course, there is no lack of features like optical stabilization, or the five-fold hybrid zoom that combines the capabilities of sensors with AI systems. In addition, the Huawei P20 Pro is one of the only phones capable of capturing images in conditions where light is virtually non-existent thanks to a ISO level maximum of 102,400.
Stopping at each of the sensors, the first 40 megapixels has been named Sensor Light Fusion , and is able to offer impressive levels of luminosity and definition. On the other hand, the 20-megapixel monochrome sensor is designed to achieve fantastic depth in photographs, while the 8-megapixel camera, VARIO-SUMMILUX-H 1: 1.6 – 2.4 / 27-80ASPH , is responsible for achieving the hybrid zoom feature of the Huawei P20 Pro that captures even the smallest detail at great distances.
Logically, the capabilities of these sensors are accentuated by the use of artificial intelligence, and even less experienced photographers can achieve perfect captures. At night and without a tripod, the terminal can stabilize the photographs perfectly thanks to the use of AI, and thus capture images with the best sharpness.
In addition, the Huawei P20 Pro is able to use the technology generated by the NPU to recognize the objects to be photographed and configure the camera parameters accordingly. But that’s not all, since the shutter without delay It offers the possibility to capture even the most fleeting moments thanks to a capture speed of only 0.3 seconds. Nor is the predictive approach missing , which autonomously keeps track of the moving objects and the image, so that the camera is always ready when making the image to be captured.
