Huawei is looking forward to advanced camera solutions for the flagship P70 series and a customized periscope lens could be one of them with better capabilities than the OV64B sensor. The OEM seems to focus on every lens detail for the next P-series.

Weibo blogger @FixedFocus says that Huawei is likely to adopt a new customized periscope camera for the P70 series which may surpass the current OV64B sensor.

OV64B Camera Sensor

The Omnivision OV64B camera sensor claims to be the world’s first 0.7 micron 64MP imaging lens. It is useful for ultra-thin premium devices. The respective sensor stands on PureCel Plus-S stacked die technology and a quad-cell color filter array.

Further, the OV64B supports 2 x 2 microlens phase detection autofocus (ML-PDAF) to amplify the autofocus accuracy and offer better results under low light conditions.

However, it looks like the Chinese OEM is searching for the latest and innovative periscope camera solutions for the approaching P70 models. The details reveal that a new upgraded periscope is under development by Howe (Haowei).

Ahead, the tipster mentioned that this solution may only show up with the high-end models of the lineup (P70 Pro and P70 Art). Meanwhile, the periscope segment could remain unchanged for the standard Huawei P70 with 5x optical zoom.

In addition, the tipster mentioned that the major selling point of the new Huawei P70 series could be AI imaging. Thus, photography could be the main focus of the next P-series.
