Huawei introduced the triple-lens camera setup when it released the Huawei P20 Pro earlier this year. Its latest flagship series — the Huawei Mate 20 line — also features triple cameras.
According to Huawei executive Walter Ji, the next two frontiers are quad camera setups and 10x zoom.
Ji says, “Next year we will definitely see more innovation in the camera, and now we have three, imagine four for next year.”

As far as zoom capabilities go, Ji is unsatisfied with the current status quo: “Three or five times the zoom is not enough, ten times the zoom in consistent quality with the smartphone, this is unique! In these areas we research, and there we could have surprises for you.”
Ji also dismissed the idea of Huawei releasing budget devices: “In the entry-level class, you can not guarantee a good user experience, which is not good for the Huawei brand.” It seems the budget devices will stay with Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor.
Finally, Ji also dismissed the idea of introducing Huawei Android One devices: “We tested that in our markets, but I do not think customers are happy with it.”
