The 2020 flagship phones of Huawei devices use the previous generation IMX700 sensors . These sensors are already quite advanced technologies. For this reason, the company is likely to continue the collaboration and offer more advanced cameras in its new devices . Considering that Huawei announced the P50 phones in March last year , they may want to use the sensor in these devices, which are likely to come soon.
Although Huawei is no longer popular outside of China; Although the company still offers the best cameras among phones. So now he wants to raise the bar further by going to sensor and pixel enhancement .
We have seen this type of device before in 2014 . Panasonic revealed an Android device with a 1-inch camera sensor with the Lumix CM1 . However, although it runs Android and offers phone usage; the device was more like a compact camera capable of providing great images .
Now it seems that we can see 1 inch camera technology on a device that we can identify a phone more clearly . Therefore, the resulting results have created excitement among many camera enthusiasts .
