This is how the world’s first smartphone with a 100-megapixel inch sensor takes pictures. Live photos taken with the Huawei P50 camera

An insider known on Twitter under the nickname Rodent950 posted a photo taken with an engineering-grade Huawei P50 camera. The watermarks in the pictures serve as proof that the photos were taken by the camera of the new flagship of the Chinese company. Interestingly, the images contain the signature of the software platform: HarmonyOS. This means that the P50 will be one of the first Huawei with a proprietary “Android replacement”.

The author of the leak notes that the original resolution of the images is 25 megapixels, but this is with the use of a Bayer filter. This means that the real resolution of the sensor is 100 megapixels. The informant doubts that Huawei sacrificed the size of pixels for the sake of their number, which means that the physical size of the matrix is ​​larger than the previous one: one can assume the presence of an inch sensor. In this case, Huawei P50 and P50 Pro will be the first smartphones in the world with such a large sensor.

As for the photos, you can’t find fault with them: there is no noise, no chromatic aberrations, the detail is excellent. It can be seen that the photos were taken with a sufficient amount of light, but the inch sensor can take smartphone night photography to a new level – and it would be very interesting to look at samples of such photos. But there are none yet.

Not as much is known about smartphones themselves as we would like. In fact, for now, we can only talk with complete confidence about how the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro look like. They will almost certainly be built on the Kirin 9000 SoC. According to the latest rumors, Huawei has moved the announcement of new products from April to May, in the same month the new products will go on sale, but in a very limited number: there will definitely be less of them than the Huawei P40.

Rodent950 is a well-known insider specializing in leaks about Huawei smartphones. He has repeatedly given the exact characteristics and images of new products before their release. This was the case, for example, with the Huawei P40 and Mate 40 smartphones.

As mentioned several times, the main difference between this device and the Series 6 is the enlarged display. Disassembling iFixit revealed that the watch uses an OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen (on-cell touch), this technology debuted in the iPhone 13.

According to experts, this is an unusual approach for Apple, which usually prefers to experiment with new screen technologies on watches, and then implement them on smartphones – as happened with OLED, variable refresh rate and the function of “always on” screen.

IFixit partnered with three former Apple engineers to disassemble the Apple Watch Series 7. As they noted, it was the new display that could cause delays in production and force the company to release the device later than it would like.

When Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, it didn’t announce a specific release date. Former Apple engineers said this is usually indicative of delays, and the most likely cause is a manufacturing glitch caused by watch displays. They explained, “The screens have some of the most complex supply chains and assembly processes in the industry.”

The iFixit experts also found that the Apple Watch Series 7 has a larger battery compared to its predecessor. However, this did not lead to an increase in battery life, since the larger screen consumes more power.
