This would be the sensor under the main camera lens.

Anyway you guys are die h... moreP50 Pro uses smaller RGGB IMX766 and MONO IMX600 sensor instead of rumored IMX800 RYYB because of the ban, they cannot get the newest flagship sensor anymore, so they changes the plan earlier this year which causes the delay of the announcement.

Shui8, 14 Aug 2021Since when Huawei's phone blowing out highlights lolI own Mate 40 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro and in almost every scenario of Photos, Huawei has better dynamic range. And in nighttime shots iPhone always blow out the highlights, if you want to talk about this

It's highly possible that you are right and GSMARENA might be wrong(1/1.28 mentioned there).

I was just saying him that it isn't a new thing. That's all.

Anyway, Huawei specialty are at Super Res algorithm, meaning I cannot spot any big details degradation even up to 60mm, let alone tiny gap between 23mm to 27mm.

https://www.instagram.com/shuibullah.amran/ - notice that in the description I crop a lot on most photos while composing for final output. (IG compress photos, but u get the point of it).

DD, 14 Aug 2021It does and its really bad!Huawei were always superb with highlights and HDR, even recent comparison showcased it perfectly with Mi 11 Ultra vs P50 Pro, where Xiaomi blown out highlights in both outdoor and indoor scenarios. Also it is known specification with Isocell sensors, brightening the scene quite a bit, also having bright skies in night shots, sky being blue rather than dark or black.

P C M, 13 Aug 2021What are you talking about ? He/she is right. Multiple users have published the exif data and this shows that the Huawei P50 Pro has a 50mm² sensor area at 23mm (at 27mm it's between 35 and 40mm²)

P C M, 13 Aug 2021What are you talking about ? Well, obviously camera sensors on P50 Pro.

Shui8, 13 Aug 2021P50 sensor is not 1/1.28", its smaller at 1/1.5".... moreWhat are you talking about ?

I think that a lot of users here have a completely wrong understanding of sensor size. Sensor size isn't very important. The important things are the algorithms: Artifacts, white balance, tone mapping, shutter speed, ...
An iPhone 12 captures only 17% more light per time than a Pixel 5, that's nearly nothing (that's the difference between 1/14s or 1/12s exposure time!), an iPhone 11 even captures 8% less light per time than the Pixel 5 and can deliver sharper low light results. Everybody can test exactly what result a larger sensor (with a larger lens) would produce: Just use a manual camera app and twice the exposure time (and 50% of the Iso gain) will give you the same result that a 100% larger sensor area with a 100% larger effective lens area would produce (apart from the different depth of field and there must be no movements). Really nothing special: You get a less noisy image. A larger sensor + larger lens doesn't magically produce a different result. It won't magically give you less blown out highlights or improve the processing. The image would look identical, just with less noise, if the same exposure settings are used. For example the statement: "Larger sensors have a higher dynamic range" does NOT mean that there are less blown out highlights, if the exposure settings are identical. It also does NOT mean that the shadows are brighter. It means nothing else than that the shadows of the raw data are less noisy, if the exposure settings are identical. So larger sensor + larger lens really only improves the signal to noise ratio of the raw data. It doesn't change the look (apart from a different depth of field).
