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

Published

on


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.

According to a report coming from Taiwanese media, Huawei has started the mass production of its next-generation foldable phone in November. It’s mentioned that the phone will compete against Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 but the price could be lower.

The report also wrote shows that the success of Galaxy Z Flip has brought the interest of other tech makers into this field and they also want to produce the same products to step foot into this smartphone category. Despite their futuristic appearance and interesting features, foldable phones are using immature glass technology and costs high as compared to regular flagship devices.

Huawei Mate V Flip foldable phone next gen

Talking about Samsung, the company launched its Z Flip 3 in August this year, and in over 40 days, the model received over 1 million sales on the record. Samsung plans to increase shipments of foldable smartphones from 7 million to 13 million by 2022, including 4 million Galaxy Z Fold and 9 million Galaxy Z Flip.

On the other hand, due to the restrictions, Samsung’s rival Huawei is currently lagging behind in the foldable smartphones segment but it’s very much capable of making such innovation as seen in the Mate X2.

Previous sources reveal that Huawei could launch a new flip design smartphone that will come with a powerful hinge system named – Mate V. Although, Huawei has not spoken anything on this matter.

Huawei Mate V Flip:

Huawei Mate V has a clamshell phone design. The main panel is a full view display that folds inward. There are function keys on the left and the right side consist volume and power buttons. Meanwhile, the bottom side features ports and speaker grills for the input.
