Huawei will introduce quad-camera and 10x optical zoom-enabled smartphone by next year

Huawei Mate 20

Huawei has always been the overachieving kid in town when it comes to the innovative technology. Especially when it comes to the camera department. The Chinese smartphone maker in the past has not only been the first to introduce the dual rear camera setup. But they’re the first to introduce the quad-camera setup. 

So when Samsung out of the blue made an announcement of the world’s first quad-camera module setup on the rear on its Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018), Huawei must have been disappointed. Cuz for its new Mate series, the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, the smartphone manufacturer didn’t introduce a four camera module setup on the rear.

Huawei’s Quad-camera smartphone coming

These things happen! When the technologies are moving so fast, you can’t always be the first to introduce something you always have. In an interview with Walter Ji, President of Huawei consumer business group, Western European Region. He quoted the company’s ambitious plans to introduce its first quad-camera setup smartphone at some point next year.

Not only that we also learned that Huawei quad camera setup would be majorly different compared to Samsung’s Galaxy A9 (2018). While its to early to tell the sensors they’d be using, Walter Ji confirmed on one thing that Huawei’s new flagship phone will have 10x Optical Zoom.

If that comes true it would be a huge breakthrough for the company. As well as for the smartphone industry in terms of the camera capabilities on a smartphone. Huawei P20 Pro already sits ahead in the industry defining DxO Mark chart with the 3X optical zoom technology.

Of course, the president didn’t give comments on the timeline of this new flagship smartphone. Expect it to arrive in 2019 in any quarter. Stay tuned as we will bring you updates on this.
