Huawei Mate 60 Pro is using a camera sensor from Samsung and not Sony reveals a smartphone teardown report from Nikkei in collaboration with research firm Fomalhat Techno Solutions.

The teardown report shows that Huawei Mate 60 Pro is using about 47% of domestically produced components as compared to the Huawei Mate 40 Pro released in 2020. The report also mentions that this new Huawei phone is using a camera image sensor from Samsung.

It’s a big revelation and comes amid rumors of Huawei parting ways with Sony, a famous mobile camera image sensor manufacturer.

Huawei Mate 60 Pro equips a triple camera system including a main 50MP camera with variable aperture technology. It simply means that the chip could change the aperture from f/1.4 to f/4.0. The other two cameras are a 12MP ultra-wide angle and a 48MP super macro telephoto camera with f/3.0 aperture.

Partnership with Sony:

Huawei and Sony have been doing business for a long time, especially for Huawei’s flagship phones. Last year, Huawei released the Huawei Mate 50 Pro featuring a 50 MP ultra aperture camera system. It was the first Huawei flagship with variable aperture technology. Huawei P60 Pro, which was released earlier this year, uses a 48MP ultra lighting camera ultra aperture camera.

Past information suggests that the Huawei P60 Pro will bring the Sony IMX888, a 1/1.35-inch sensor. However, the Huawei Mate 60 Pro featuring a Samsung image camera sensor is something new for the Huawei flagship series.

An insider suggests that Huawei will end its partnership with Sony for IMX sensors. Still, there are no official announcements made so far on this matter. It may be possible that the Huawei Mate P60 Pro was the last Huawei smartphone with a Sony sensor but only more information could resolve the confusion.
