The top variant – Huawei P70 Art will use a 1/1-inch sensor with a glass-plastic hybrid lens. This lens is provided by Largan and Sunny Optical, two of the leading manufacturers of hybrid lenses.

A glass-plastic hybrid lens provides higher quality, sharp pixels, and less chromatic aberration. It has a more durable structure, lightweight module, and lower manufacturing cost than glass lenses.

Kuo said Huawei will use Sony’s IMX989 in the P70 Art variant along with a 1G6P lens combination. This information on this matter suggests that the 1G6P lens could leverage the quality and capability of the IMX989 sensor.

Although, the 8P lens is cheaper than the 1G6P lens but the advantages of the latter provide a better edge in better optical performance with more deformation-resistance. That’s why Apple featured the lens in the iPhone 15 Pro models.

The selection of Largan and Sunny Optical in this particular supply chain depends claimed with in-house glass lenses with high-quality design output.
