Huawei Executive Reveals Stunning Photos Captured with P60 Pro’s Periscope Lens

Huawei P60 Pro to feature RYYB color matrix on periscope lens

Huawei is set to launch its P60 flagship series which will focus on the devices’ photographic capabilities. The latest rumors hint that the Huawei P60 Pro will incorporate the RYYB color matrix on the periscope lens, as reported by Digital Chat Station via Huawei Central. This periscope lens is folded inside the body of the phone and uses prisms to transmit light from the lens to the image sensor. With this technology, the phone can produce optical zoom results that were previously impossible on smartphone cameras.

RYYB color matrix

The typical camera sensor comprises an RGB color matrix (Red, Green, Blue) that has four pixels, with one red, two green, and one blue. The latest RYYB color matrix replaces the two green pixels with yellow pixels which introduces 30% to 40% more light to the sensor. Huawei had used the RYYB color matrix earlier but stopped using it with the P50 Pro. However, Digital Chat Station’s post hints at its return this year.

Periscope lens with 64MP OmniVision OMB 64B image sensor

Huawei has been working on algorithms to enhance the quality of a zoomed picture on the P60 Pro. The periscope lens on this device will be driven by the 64MP OmniVision OMB 64B image sensor. Additionally, the primary rear camera will have a variable aperture feature that debuted on last year’s Mate 50 Pro. This feature presents ten different aperture sizes between f/1.4 and f/4 that users can utilize to control the depth of field and blur in their photographs.

AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and 5000mAh battery

The P60 Pro is also rumored to feature a 6.6-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a QHD+ 1440 x 3200 resolution, supplied by China’s BOE. Huawei’s XMAGE in-house photography system will make a return, and the phone is expected to use Sony’s 50MP IMX888 sensor behind the primary camera, while the ultra-wide camera will use the 50MP Sony IMX858 sensor. The phone will come with HarmonyOS 3.1 pre-installed, and the 5000mAh battery will charge at 88W.

Photos taken with the telephoto camera from an unannounced Huawei phone

Huawei’s He Gang, Head of Huawei Smart Devices, recently shared images taken with the telephoto camera from an unannounced Huawei phone that may possibly be the P60 Pro. This camera employs the periscope lens technology, which suggests that users will be able to produce high-quality images with the device.

Second-generation emergency satellite platform

The P60 Pro could also potentially introduce Huawei’s second-generation emergency satellite platform. This platform is used in areas without cellular connectivity and adds voice text capabilities and support for short-term voice calls, along with the ability to send and receive two-way text messages through satellite transmission. This feature will be useful in areas where there is no standard internet or cellular connectivity.
