Huawei Mate 30 Pro will have two large 40MP sensors on the back

Not only will the Huawei Mate 30 Pro have two 40MP sensors, they will be massive too. The main camera sensor will have 40MP resolution (and a quad RYYB filter) like the P30 Pro but it's a bigger 1/1.55” type sensor. The second 40MP sensor goes behind the ultra wide-angle lens.

It will be a 1/1.7” sensor – that’s the same size as the P30 Pro main sensor! And as you can see in the image shared by @IceUniverse, both sensors are quite a bit larger than the main sensor that Samsung uses in the Galaxy S10 and Note10.

In fact, Huawei has had the upper hand in terms of sensor size since early 2018 with the Huawei P20 Pro vs. Samsung Galaxy S9+. Here’s a comparison between the main sensors of Huawei and Samsung flagships:

Anyway, the telephoto camera on the Mate 30 Pro is expected to stay at 8MP, basically using the same module as the P30 Pro.

Huawei has trademarked the names ‘Cine Lens’ and ‘Matrix Camera’, which suggests that the cameras on the Mate 30 family will feature additional upgrades over the P30 phones.

Thats a very narrow minded view. The s11 is going to have a bigger different sensor. It depends on a companies ability with software. Huawei actually has a number of advantages. And it has more to do dual pixel and ois than just the sensor

So there's pixel binning and post processing and over softening and then over sharpening bla bla bla, honey Samsung makes 32mp 40mp sensors, 64mp sensors andd now "mind blowing" 108mp sensors why do you think they don't put those in flagships because...
