The company’s new flagship is expected to change the data of what one can expect from a smartphone camera, while the performance as a whole moves to the expected high levels.
At the same time, the new company introduced HUAWEI nova 10 series, consisting of HUAWEI nova 10 and nova 10 Pro. Their goal is to stand out for their impressive photo and video capabilities, within the mid-range smartphone category.
Mate 50 Pro: A Camera Like Never Before in a Smartphone
The new XMAGE Ultra Aperture Camera on the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro offers an innovation that professional photographers as well as amateurs and experimenters will love. The aperture is variable and ranges from f/1.4 to f/4, allowing the user to choose from ten stops between these two numbers to adjust the depth of focus.
Images are processed at a scale of less than a millimeter, separating the subject from the background with great success and accuracy before blurring what is behind it. This feature is offered for both photos and videos, where the clips, along with the optical stabilizer, look professional, with a blur around the protagonist in the video and a high image resolution.
Of course, the results are amazing. Variable aperture – at the level of the lens – has never been seen before on a smartphone, and the camera’s overall capabilities bring it very close to a professional-grade DSLR, giving it a great deal of freedom to adjust the image at various points before it is clicked.
Then we have the improved lens that absorbs up to 24% more light, allowing the Ultra Night Mode to literally shine through because the results will be super bright even in very dark conditions. From the details of the night sky to the tiny city lights, the shows are fantastic. The benefits of a brighter lens are also evident in morning photos, striking a balance between color accuracy, contrast and detail in the shot thanks to the RYYB aperture and sensor array.
All the above features of the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro contribute to the excellent performance which was awarded the highest score in the history of DXOMARK, with an excellent score of 149. Hence, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is truly the king of smartphone photography. Everyone is behind its competitors in the industry thanks to its great overall performance and photographic features. In particular, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro achieved the best score ever in a photo, thanks to excellent results in the categories: exposure, focus, and texture / noise.
Mate 50 Pro: Outstanding Performance
In addition to the camera, HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is equipped with a good blend of new and powerful technologies aimed at making your daily life easier and better. The basis of all this is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 octa-core, the latest chip from the well-known company designed to provide speed and high autonomy that exceed today’s needs. With a 4700mAh battery and a 6.7-inch OLED display, the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro lasts many hours and with a 66W SuperCharge, it only takes a few minutes to fully charge it.
It is combined with 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage space to store countless apps, videos, photos and files without worrying about whether they are suitable or not. In fact, with the SuperStorage function, this convenience goes even further, since the phone will automatically detect up to 20 GB that are not used in the best way and will suggest that you delete them – for example, several photos that are almost the same archives or duplicates.
On the other hand, the SuperHold feature focuses on speed and smooth use of applications, keeping any type of file or text for a long period of time so that you can easily share it with those you need without having to search for it every time.
Of course, there are also add-ons like new widgets that let you see the app’s main points (like the steps you’ve taken) right on your home screen. There are plenty of widgets to customize the experience the way you want it to fit perfectly into your everyday life.
All this under the umbrella of EMUI 13, the version of the new operating system that comes with the HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro. With security being a major concern, you can easily take a look at which apps are using any of your data, while your mobile phone is constantly being scanned for malware. You can also remove all sensitive data (such as location) from your photos with a simple setting.
The HUAWEI Mate 50 Pro is available in two versions with different materials on the back surface. One version with a glass cover and the other with a vegan leather cover. The glass version is available in silver and black, giving the phone a distinctive and elegant finish. The vegan leather version comes in orange, is inspired by the bright sun and is additionally equipped with a “Kunlun Glass” display.
Kunlun glass is made of billions upon billions of nanocrystals, as a result of composite ion injection, making it drip-resistant. “Kunlun Glass” has been certified with five stars for its durability, by Swiss SGS. This makes the Mate 50 Pro’s special orange vegan leather edition the first smartphone to receive this certification, marking another breakthrough from Huawei in the field of materials science. The new flagship smartphone from Huawei also features a water resistance, with a rating of IP68, at a depth of up to 6 meters, which makes it particularly water and dust resistant.
Nova 10 Series: Great mid-range cameras
The HUAWEI nova 10 series follows similar paths, with the HUAWEI nova 10 and nova 10 Pro both featuring an impressive array of cameras for every occasion. The 50MP main camera with an RYYB sensor captures 40% more light than a standard RGGB camera, for crystal-clear image quality, great color retention and great detail even in dark conditions.
But perhaps the most impressive thing is the 60MP front camera of the two devices and the ability to record 4K Ultra HD video. In fact, the HUAWEI nova 10 Pro’s front camera is dual, providing the ability to automatically focus on objects that are close to them, so that you can easily shoot high-quality vlogs without difficulties and editing. Also, the video can be zoomed up to 5x on parts of the image for easy videos about eg makeup, showing the details without losing yourself from the image for a moment.
The main camera has similar functions, primarily through follow focus, which keeps the shot focused on a moving subject even if you are out of the shot. It also enables portrait video shooting, blurring the background around the subject for a cinematic effect.
AppGallery and GSpace, means endless possibilities for apps
HUAWEI AppGallery is on a steady upward trajectory, hosting over 200,000 apps at the moment. Among them are popular and irreplaceable social applications (Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, TikTok), banks (Ethniki, Piraeus, Alpha Bank, Eurobank), phone (Cosmote, Vodafone, Wind) or even order food (e-food, BOX).
Installing the above, and more, is very easy: just find the app you’re interested in in the AppGallery and hit install. In a few seconds it will be ready to use!
GSpace is one of the very useful applications that you will find in AppGallery. With it, you can easily and quickly install popular Google apps (such as YouTube, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Maps and Google Docs) on your new HUAWEI device, making it easy to switch from your previous smartphone to this app without missing out on anything from your daily life.
