After several speculations, it is confirmed that Huawei will finally use two 40MP sensors in its upcoming Huawei Mate 30 Pro. According to a GSMArena report, the primary 40MP sensor will have a quad RYYB filter similar to Huawei P30 Pro but will attract a larger type sensor at 1/1.55” as opposed to 1/1.7” on Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
Based on a tweet posted by renowned leakster @IceUniverse, a comparison of the sensor sizes between various Huawei & Samsung shows the difference in the sensor size in every generation of high-end smartphones from both the brands.
The upcoming Mate 30 Pro will pack in two 40MP modules with the size of 1/1.55” regular sensor type and 1/1.7” ultra-wide-angle lens along with an 8MP telephoto camera module. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note10 uses a 12MP 1/2.55” type which is comparatively minuscule to the sensor size that Huawei will mount on its upcoming smartphone speculated to launch later this year probably in October.

The comparison between the sensor sizes shows the progression that Huawei & Samsung have followed where Samsung has managed to keep the sensor size and resolution intact right from its Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to the latest Galaxy Note10 although it has improved the underlying features, functionalities, and computational prowess for sure. On the other hand, Huawei has managed to scale up its sensor size from 12MP 1/2.9 inch on Huawei P9 to 40MP 1/1.7” on Huawei P30 Pro and so on.
Chinese tech giant Huawei has trademarked several technologies such as Matrix Camera, Cine Lens while imposing an Air Glass on upcoming Mate 30 series hinting that these will be just a few upgrades it has already made and we are still a few weeks away from the launch.
