The OV50H is also the first to feature horizontal/vertical quad-phase detection (QPD). With these specifications, the OV50H can deliver flagship-level low-light and autofocus features for smartphones.

This sensor is larger than the 1/1.4 inches used in the Huawei P60 Pro. The larger will provide high-quality photos with a maximized light intake.

If Huawei is considering this new sensor for a flagship smartphone, then what would be better than Huawei P70? This phone is scheduled to launch in the first half of next year and the company would make it even stronger in photography than the last generation.

Aside from the camera, the Huawei P-series will also return the Kirin 5G chipset with this new release. Therefore, the launch of this new device could also bring new competition in the smartphone industry.
