Recently Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has move their photography performance to the next level with 100MP camera. Rumor has it that HUAWEI is also making a 52MP camera. It is stated that the HUAWEI P40 Pro is sporting the Sony IMX 700 CMOS 52<P camera with RYYB colour matrix.
The Sony IMX 700 will use a 1 / 1.33 outsole and support 16 pixels in one (4 × 4). When combined, the photosensitive pixel size can reach up to 4.48μm. As a comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra ’s 100-megapixel sensor HM1 supports 9-pixel integration (3 × 3), with a single pixel of up to 2.4 μm, and Xiaomi ’s 100-megapixel sensor HMX supports 4-pixel integration (2 × 2), single pixel maximum at 1.6μm.
Multi-pixel synthesis is a test of the sensor’s design capabilities. Samsung has to introduce new materials to solve the crosstalk problem in order to achieve 3 × 3. From this point of view, Sony’s camera is still superior, which will benefits from the night shooting performance.
HUAWEI P40 Pro also sports a 40MP super wide angle, wide angle, 10x telescopic camera and ToF sensor.
