Huawei P40 Pro might have a quad-curved display with no notch, 52MP main camera

14 January 2020
Expect a pill-shaped punch hole and 13 MP output.

NicoLPFR, 18 Jan 2020Something's wrong about the sensor in this article. A 52MP ... morethey already told u.....take everything with a pinch of salt.

Something's wrong about the sensor in this article. A 52MP 1/1.3" sensor would translate to a 1.19μm pixel size (2.38 after 2x2 binning).

Nick Tagataka, 17 Jan 2020Tell me which sensor released between October and November ... moreThe custom sensors have a number. Like the p30 pro had IMX 600y.
Unless you know the exact number, sensor size can't be confirmed.

IMX 686, IMX 53X, IMX 54X all are between 1/1.5" to 1/1.7".
Upcoming ones like IMX 555 in s20 is 1/1.7".
Upcoming IMX ? in Xperia 0 is 1/1.5".

And back in 2017, Huawei was using 1/1.7" sensor while everyone else stuck with 1/2.55" ones. They use Sony's custom sensor so the size of other mobile phone sensors in the market is pretty much irrelevant.

Coz I see plenty launched it Oct-Nov 2019 which had 1/1.5" or 1/1.7" sensors.
Didn't see any 1/3" sensor.
Even the Xperia using 1/1.5" for its upcoming flagship.

Anonymous, 16 Jan 2020It's not a 1/1.3" sensor. Most probably a 1/1.5" or 1/1.7.... moreLol what a wild speculation.

Knowing Huawei, they usually advancing their camera hardware setup. For sure they not gonna stick with 1/1.7” & most likely bigger than 1/1.5" in order to compete.

Most probably a 1/1.5" or 1/1.7.... moreThen let's see which one of us is right, usually when camera specs of phones are leaked info about the MP count and the sensor size come up with more certainty and then the pixel count is calculated based on those data. My bet is the leaker calculated the pixel pitch in a wrong way by treating the "inch" used for sensor size format as the actual unit inch, hence he/she got a smaller value than he/she should.

They got the sensor size wrong.

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2020No it won't be 2.3 effective pixel size for p40 pro since H... moreAnd did you even read all the comments I posted on this page before replying to me? I'm suggesting that the pixel size mentioned in this article is incorrect because 52MP sensor with 0.96µm pixels would be a lot smaller than 1/1.3". If S20U and P40P will have similarly sized sensor with similar native resolution (12MP vs 13MP after pixel binning) then the effective pixel size should be also roughly the same, hence I got 2.31µm through some simple calculations.

Finaly a flagship device without an ugly notch or a punch hole or something disgusting like that great.
YAY.

i hope it will have stereo speaker.. not mono pls..

Shui8, 15 Jan 2020That seems more appropriate. Even on previous P20, Mate 20 ... moreIt's not a downgrade.
10mp pics achieved with 2.0 micron effective pixel size vs 13mp pics achieved with 1.92 micron effective pixel size.

Plus a few other things from the sensor would be refined compared to previous 40mp sensor on Huawei phones.

Nick Tagataka, 15 Jan 2020If the rumour that P40 Pro will have a 1/1.3" sensor is tru... moreNo it won't be 2.3 effective pixel size for p40 pro since Huawei uses 4to1 pixel binning while Samsung does 9to1 pixel binning. The resolution is different and individual pixel size is also different inspite of similar sized sensor.

P40 pro with 4to1 pixel binning gives you effective pixel size of 1.92 micron since individual pixel size is 0.96 micron (0.96*2=1.92)

S20 ultra with 9to1 pixel binning gives you effective pixel size of 2.4 micron since individual pixel size is 0.8 micron (0.8*3=2.4)

Did you even read the article?

Nick Tagataka, 15 Jan 2020If you assume that its sensor size is identical to Samsung'... moreI got 1.32nm which will give 2.6nm pixels after binning

If also banned from using Google Services then hopefully Huawei is working overtime to make its own.

I don't understand the craze of curved screen.
Just so that u can claim STB ratio?

"The sensor pixel size is 0.96µm, which means the 13 MP shots will have an effective pixel size of 1.92µm, which is definitely big."

Didn't all previous 40MP P and Mate phones have an effective pixel size of 2.0µm?

Kress, 15 Jan 2020Also with no Google services. Meaning just for mainland China :)Meaning that you have to install them manually! In europe, or in the rest of the world.
