During the HDC 2022, Huawei held a conference, Bruce Lee, Vice President of Huawei Smart Device Business Group Mobile Phone Product Line explained the launching the launch of the XMAGE camera imaging system.
In July this year, Huawei announced its own imaging brand, XMAGE, to upgrade imaging technology, style, and experience.
In September, the Huawei Mate 50 series was equipped with a super-optical XMAGE imaging system, introducing a number of technological breakthroughs.
XMAGE focuses on four imaging systems: optical system, mechanical structure, imaging technology, and image processing. From the four dimensions of optomechanical computing, the entire system of XMAGE imaging system is combined.
For example – in the optical system, the super-optical variable camera on the Huawei Mate 50 series adopts the technology of variable aperture, which can achieve a ten-stop adjustable aperture at the physical level, bringing technological breakthroughs in three optical systems.
The entire lens module adopts a high-precision component design and assembly process to create a physical large F1.4 aperture.
The overall structure has a total of 23 precision components, including high-precision annular magnetic field micro-control motors, physical aperture blades, and other innovative originals, with a maximum precision of 5-10μm micron level.
The second is a breakthrough in the ability to control the amount of light. It is a technical difficulty of the optical system to realize the technical solution of the variable aperture and match the appropriate amount of incoming light for different light environments, thereby bringing the top imaging effect.
In order to bring precise control of the amount of incoming light, Huawei has pioneered a high-precision full-process calibration and detection solution.
After 20+ versions of blade design and verification, coupled with a set of high-precision drive control algorithms, the 6 metal aperture blades can be physically opened and closed to achieve the effect of a 10-stop aperture change.
The high-reliability aesthetic design is the product gene of the Huawei Mate series. Huawei has pioneered the integrated metal coating solution for the appearance of the blade.
The blade adopts a new material of high-modulus, bright, and high-strength aluminum, which further reduces the structural weight and achieves a 20-fold increase in strength.
In the Huawei Mate 50 RS Porsche design, a 3.2mm ultra-long mechanical stroke motor is also introduced, and the first time in the industry to adopt a dual-mirror group-focusing structure design. It can use the moving focus between the mirror groups for secondary calibration to further improve the optical resolution in macro mode.
In the XMAGE image style, Huawei has also established its own color image style. The image color research team brought in by Huawei brings together expert teams from seven Huawei research institutes around the world, including China, Finland, Japan, and the United Kingdom.
The submissions of 3.3 million+ users of the Huawei New Image Contest are samples to establish Huawei’s exclusive image style, which is required by: Realism, moisturizing, transparency, and breathing.
In terms of color, Huawei has also cooperated with the Color Research Institute of the Art and Research Center of Chinese Tsinghua University, based on the theoretical basis of the “color science” system, to extract the color tone of the XMAGE style.
On the basis of XMAGE’s primary color, it does not change the inherent color of the object and only adjusts from the two dimensions of saturation and lightness. Under the condition of retaining the content of the photo, it presents a bright and bright tone, forming a complete and systematic color tone system.
First Huawei Rotating Chairwoman Meng Wanzhou will start her duties on April 1
The top leader and CFO of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou will start her tenure as rotating chairwoman of the company on April 1, 2023. She is the rotating chairwoman in the company and It will be her first tenure.
Meng Wanzhou will start her duties as the first rotating chairwoman of Huawei and Mr. Guo Ping will be transferred to the chairman of Huawei’s board of supervisors. After Mr. Guo, the rotating chairmen and chairwomen are Xu Zhijun, Hu Huokon, and Meng Wanzhou.
Currently, Xu Zhijun is serving the chair for 6 months and his tenure will conclude on March 31, 2023. For your information, a rotating chairperson’s tenure stands for 4 months.
Ahead of the duty, China National Building Materials Group and Huawei held a signing ceremony for a strategic cooperation agreement in Beijing in February. Meng Wanzhou attended the signing ceremony as Huawei’s rotating chairman and witnessed the signing.
Meng Wanzhou graduated from China’s Huazhong University of Science and Technology with a master’s degree. Joined Huawei in 1993. She has successively served as the company’s international accounting director, the chief financial officer of Huawei Hong Kong, and president of the accounting management department. Meanwhile, she is serving as vice chairman, rotating chairman, and CFO of the company.
Since 2003, Meng Wanzhou has led the establishment of a globally unified Huawei financial organization structure, process, system, and IT platform. From 2007 to 2014, Meng Wanzhou promoted the IFS (Integrated Financial Services) reform in Huawei globally, making refined management one of the genes of Huawei’s continuous growth.
In 2014, Meng Wanzhou led Huawei’s data transformation and established a comprehensive data management system. He is the key person to adapt “counting one hole”, and made data a strategic asset of the company.
She enabled financial organizations to become business partners and value integrators through reform projects such as internal control of financial reports, consistency of accounts and facts, fund management, and tax management, and supported the rapid and steady development of the company’s business globally.
Since 2019, Meng Wanzhou has built an overall blueprint for financial digitization in line with Huawei’s strategic foresight and long-term development plan.
Through risk probes and control models, a non-contact risk control system and an agile operation and management system have been established to conduct smart operation management and decision-making based on data and AI algorithms.

Huawei trademarks ‘Xingyao’ for dual ring camera and rear phone design
Huawei has recently filed a word trademark “Xingyao” and Xingyao Edition, which is internally categorized under the scientific instrument or device.
According to the information, the term Xingyao has been used during last year’s Huawei Nova 10 series lineup launch event. Because it phone’s camera design of the dual ring is called Xingyao and also uses such technology.
It’s expected that Xingyao trademark is a step toward brand protection. However, the trademark approval is currently pending, which may take some time. Huawei has various technologies and ideas that the company safe keep for various purposes.
Huawei mobile UV camera feature can tell you to protect face from the Sun
Recently, China’s intellectual property office published a patent with application number CN115700841A and it has the title “Detection Method and Electronic Equipment”, which was applied on August 31, 2021.
Looking into the technical details, this technology uses an ultraviolet camera and an RGB camera, which collect UV-mapped images and color tones respectively. Then it matches the first area in the recognized ultraviolet image to the color image to improve the user experience.
That’s not it, there’s a visual representation of the entire scenario that showcases the camera can catch ultraviolet images from different angles and combines the information to process inside a dedicated application.
The app then improves the accuracy of the input and provides a refined result and guidance for the user. This is similar to a makeup app, you just need to open the sunscreen app, then tap on the shutter button and then the camera will do the rest of the work.
Once proceed the Huawei UV camera feature will tell you about the facial statics and may also highlight the area that needs sunscreen to protect the face from harmful sun rays.
Such features are a breakthrough for the smartphone industry but it would require you to manually record the facial data. Also, it would require additional camera hardware alongside the selfie camera.
To be mentioned, it would be interesting if the tech could be included in the face lock and show the statics on the lock screen.
