Huawei Mate 30 Pro Will Feature Cinema Lens On A Quad Camera Setup
Huawei is still reeling from the after shocks after being relieved from the ban that was designated by the US Department of Commerce. However, business is still in full swing with rumours and leaks regarding the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro increasing in numbers. A fresh leak sheds some light on the camera of the highest DxOMark scoring smartphone ever.
Huawei was spotted applying for two trademark applications to the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office). The trademark carried the names Cine-Lens and Camera Matrix. It indicates that the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro feature a cinema lens for high quality video recordings. The application for Huawei Cine-Lens carries a description for “cinema photography; optical lenses for recording, reproduction and processsing of sound, images and/or data; smartphones; camcorders; cameras.”
It is being speculated that both the trademarks are for Huawei’s Mate 30 and 30 Pro. Both smartphones are premium grade flagships and are expected to arrive in October. The application for Cine Lens is big deal considering Huawei has already introduced matrix camera in the Mate 20 series of 2018. Cine Lens seems to refer to camera lens which are specifically developed for high quality videography. Interestingly, actual cinema lens are rather expensive and a mobile version optimized for video recording will be quite innovative.
Leica is one of the manufacturers for such cine lenses and has frequently collaborated with Huawei. Hence, it is probable that the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro could feature the new lens technology; generally the Pro variants carry a better camera, so the feature may skip the standard variant. Unfortunately, finer details regarding the upcoming flagships from Huawei is still unavailable. An official company announcement is expected to be available in the arriving weeks; updates will be provided soon after.
