Huawei has been putting the difficult things to brands like Samsung and Apple. After launching excellent smartphones such as the Huawei P10 or the Huawei Mate 10, it is now the Huawei P20 Pro that has managed to get the title of Mobile with best camera of the year . And this is not only due to the triple camera housed in the back of the mobile, but to the good work done by the Huawei IA in background.
And is that in a time where innovation is almost a thing of the past, Huawei integrates not only a great novelty in the camera of the Huawei P20 Pro , but two. The first is the most visible to the naked eye and is the third camera sensor we have referred to so many times. The second is the one that is in charge of doing the “work of machines” and is the Artificial intelligence, direct inheritance of the new NPU present in the Kirin 970 of the firm.
Both novelties end up giving shape to a component led by the aforementioned t riple 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), the famous optics Leica Vario-Summilux-H, a utofocus hybrid by laser sensor and phase detection and “pearls” as z hybrid hybrid of 5 increases. and V 4K video and in slow motion at 960 fps / 720p.
Artificial Intelligence and photography
We have already reviewed the many advantages enjoyed by the camera Huawei P20 Pro thanks to Artificial Intelligence, but today we focus on the portrait mode of the terminal, which exploits the most blur ‘bokeh’ , the mobile that also complements perfectly with the new system of three sensors with a telephoto lens. And is that the manufacturer has achieved a symbiosis of the most attractive photographic system and NPU so that artificial intelligence dominates the experience. In this way the most professional user and the most “amateur” can squeeze the device to the maximum.
Blur ‘bokeh’ powered by IA
Besides of focusing system or the object recognition , AI helps generate perhaps the best effect ‘Bokeh’ that we find in the current telephone panorama. This mode is the star of mobile photography in recent times and the Huawei P20 Pro has the perfect combination to squeeze this mode that causes rage in Instagram, among many other social networks.
This effect is achieved through the combination of the 40-megapixel RGB main sensor and the 20 MP monochrome sensor that adds information to the image. Then the third sensor comes into action telephoto lens with aperture f / 2.4 that finishes offering the rest at the time of obtaining that blur selectively even after the image is taken.
The artificial intelligence of Huawei P20 is the one that finishes rounding the shot until you get a perfect photograph. The tool of the NPU automatically configures the scene, parameterizes the shot with the best possible balance, and even indicates to the user the best framing so that the result is impressive. Thanks to this the Huawei P20 Pro camera is able to recognize that the user is trying to make a portrait and adapts all the variables that affect the capture of the image in achieving a professional result.
But the whole process is done without the user’s realizing, in a sigh … what it takes to turn on the phone, open the camera application and press the shoot button. This leaves the reach of any type of user and their photographic knowledge to get portraits worthy of finishing in a museum.
