Huawei smartphone with six blade aperture camera, capture at instant with bright and better image quality



Huawei aperture camera

On August 19th, the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) has approved a Huawei Patent which was applied earlier this year. The document entitled “Aperture, Camera module, and Electronic Device” describes a six-blade Huawei camera aperture technology. It’ll give better control over field depth and exposure to the device to take bright and better quality images. (Found by LetsGoDigital)

This six-blade camera aperture technology seems to get inspired by diaphragm blades found in advanced system cameras. It uses to control the light, which reflects on the lens’s surface to capture a better view.

About Camera Diaphragm:

A camera diaphragm is kind of a shutter that not only protects the lens from scratching but controls the amount of light that passes through to the sensor also. Thus, it indirectly controls the aperture (or f-number) and camera depth of field of an image.

Wider aperture helps in capturing images with more blurred backgrounds. We’ll get clearer images even in the low light. However, the smartphone uses fixed aperture lenses, thus the depth of field and exposure are restricted accordingly.


Huawei Variable Aperture Camera Concept:

Talking about Huawei’s aperture concept, it’ll use a six-blade aperture technology to implement a variable structure. The blades are arranged in a slide-over manner to control the lens opening and light.

To be mentioned, Samsung Galaxy S9 also features a similar lens technology with eight blade aperture. The lens has two adjusting options of f/1.5 and f/2.4 with limited advantages.

The slide-over arrangement eliminates the use of ultrasonic motors or stepper motors in the system. Another reason to use this pattern is confined hardware space in smartphones which is not the case with digital cameras.

However, Huawei could use a miniature driver that is a composite of drive coil and drive magnet or piezoelectric driver. Besides, there are some uncertain things such if the company will use this variable aperture in a single lens or multiple lenses.

Furthermore, we have to wait for the official confirmation whether this technology will be implemented or not. Yet there is one thing for sure, it will empower Huawei’s camera technology that will beyond the company’s Mate and P series.

Similar Patent Technology:

Huawei isn’t the first company to working on variable aperture camera technology. The Koran tech firm Samsung is also reportedly working on a smartphone equipped with three variable aperture lenses.
