Huawei P50 camera design reminds us of Rolleiflex twin lens reflex camera (TLR)



Huawei is preparing to launch a new smartphone flagship,  Huawei P50, and recently, we got to see a bunch of new CAD renders of the P50 and the Pro models.

According to the renders, the P50 and P50 Pro come with brand new design specs but the most interesting part of these phones is the camera setup, yeah, we’re talking about the camera here.

The render shows the camera layout with two big circles that surely have massive camera capabilities. However, we still don’t have specific camera specs on this matter.

By looking at the cameras, I can clearly memorize one of the most classic cameras, Rolleiflex, a twin-lens reflex camera (TLR) designed in the 1900s and is a type of camera with two objective lenses of the same focal length.

One of the lenses is the photographic objective or “taking lens” (the lens that takes the picture), while the other is used for the viewfinder system, which is usually viewed from above at waist level.

The difference between TLR and SLR is that most SLRs are oriented in a horizontal format and must be rotated to shoot vertically. TLRs, however, are 6 x 6 cm square format cameras, so if a photographer wants a horizontal or vertical photo, they will shoot square and crop later.

We’re currently, unable to confirm whether Huawei is planning to add a camera system similar to the Rolleiflex but we can expect that the company might be inspired by the design of this legendary camera to inherit it in the Huawei P50.

Huawei P50 and P50 Pro Renders:

Previous renders of the Huawei P50 and P50 Pro have revealed the design specs that consist of 6.3-inch flat and 6.6-inch curved edge displays respectively.

These phones have a glass back panels with shiny color schemes for a better look as well as a new giant camera bump. Huawei P50 and P50 Pro will be powered by the Kirin 9000 processors as well as new software capabilities.
