There’s also a Huawei flagship with an extra large main camera with an OV50H 50MP 1/1.3-inch sensor. These phones are surely the Huawei Nova 12 and P70 series respectively.

OmniVision Sensors:

OV50H is a flagship image sensor and it is already used by the Chinese phone maker IQOO in IQOO 12 Pro smartphone.

So the Huawei P70 series supports H/V QPD, and it can achieve horizontal + vertical quad-pixel phase focusing. This aspect is more advanced than the Sony IMX989. It is also the first CMOS sensor of OmniVision to support H/V QPD.

OV50H brings 8K video recording and uses an on-chip pixel restoration algorithm. Furthermore, the equipped device will offer 4K video recording at 120 and 60 frames per second rate.

Different HDR modes can be used according to the scenario, it delivers 50MP Bayer output and 2x crop zoom feature as well as interlaced HDR in crop zoom mode.

Huawei P70 series will come in three variants – Huawei P70, P70 Pro, and P70 Art. So, a user also asked the tipster, whether the Huawei P70 Art version has an OV50K sensor, which is a less than 1-inch camera size. However, the tipster denied that possibility.

On the other hand, OV50E for the mid-range Huawei Nova 12 series also has QPD four-phase detection autofocus, four-in-one pixels, and 8K video recording.

Furthermore, OV50E lets you use interleaved HDR technology, which has cropping and scaling of video HDR. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said previously that Huawei will be sourcing periscope lenses largely from Taiwan’s Largan precision.

It can be seen that Huawei’s next two major products will debut OmniVision sensors to support the domestic supply chain.
