The latest Huawei Mate 40 flagships were released in October 2020. Due to problems caused by US sanctions, the company did not update the line in 2021, and there were rumors that Mate flagships could be canceled altogether. But Huawei coped with many difficulties (there were difficulties with both single-chip platforms and memory chips), as evidenced by today’s premiere of Mate 50 smartphones. And they really were worth the wait.

As expected, the series includes four models: Mate 50E, Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS Porsche Design. In this news, we will focus on the Mate 50 Pro.

The Huawei Mate 50 Pro is the world’s very first consumer (rather than highly specialized) satellite-enabled smartphone – it is sold through the domestic (for Huawei) Beidou network. A special application allows you to use satellite communications in the absence of coverage of conventional cellular networks – you can send text messages, share geotags and even make voice calls.

Improved IP68 protection is not just about maximum dust and water resistance: Huawei Mate 50 Pro can withstand diving to a depth of 6 meters (!), despite the fact that the IP68 degree indicates the possibility of staying at a depth of 1.5 meters for half an hour. Additional protection of the device is provided by Kunlun glass – in a special version, both the front and back panels are decorated with it. Huawei says that this glass is 10 times stronger than regular glass (apparently, there is Gorilla Glass of the latest versions).

An equally important point is the use of the top-end single-chip system Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 in the Mate 50 Pro. Naturally, there is no 5G modem, but Huawei bypasses this weak spot with the help of a case accessory. The software platform of the smartphone is the latest HarmonyOS 3.

The camera has three sensors responsible for capturing the image. The main one is with a resolution of 50 megapixels and a RYYB pixel layout. In the module with it – optical image stabilization and a lens with a variable aperture of F / 1.4-4.0. There is also a 13-megapixel sensor with an ultra wide-angle lens (also used for macro photography) and a 64-megapixel sensor with an RYYB pixel layout as part of the periscope camera. The latter provides an optical zoom of 3.5x, the lens aperture is F / 3.5. The main camera also has a proximity sensor, a laser autofocus assistant, a 10-channel multispectral sensor. Apparently, the Mate 50 Pro is a new contender for leadership in the DxOMark ranking.

The smartphone’s power subsystem is represented by a 4700 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast wired charging, 50 W wireless charging and 7.5 W reverse wireless power.

As you can see in the drawing, the module will be huge. In terms of the size ratio of the module to the size of the smartphone itself, it is even larger than that of the Xiaomi 12s Ultra.

Of course, the dimensions of the module do not at all mean that the new Tecno will also have a large inch image sensor. Given what the company produces, this is unlikely.

As for other parameters, the FCC base says a 5040 mAh battery with 45-watt charging and Bluetooth 5.3.

According to GalaxyClub, Samsung has filed a patent application with the World Intellectual Property Organization for a new telephoto lens with sensor shift technology. The technology is expected to be used for the first time in the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

The patent describes a camera module including a lens, an image stabilization unit, and a movable member including an image sensor electrically coupled to the substrate. In this case, the image stabilization unit is connected to the lens. The image stabilization unit may be configured to move the movable element in at least one direction perpendicular to the optical axis, so that the optical axis is aligned with the predetermined position of the image sensor.

Apple first introduced sensor-shift image stabilization technology to the wide-angle module of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The camera of this smartphone uses sensor shift to achieve better image stabilization and better photo quality.

In the iPhone 14 Pro/Max, Apple installed a 48-megapixel camera. However, some users experienced camera shake issues, which Apple fixed in iOS 16.0.2. Also, the iPhone 14 Pro/Max telephoto lens does not support this technology.

As previously reported, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra may be the first smartphone to feature telephoto sensor shift technology. The main camera should have a resolution of 200 megapixels.
