Huawei's P30 Pro could be the first of the company's phones to be equipped with a quad camera array on the back, a watermarked photograph from Huawei's consumer business group CEO proposed. Yesterday, GSMArena noted that Richard Yu wrote a photograph of the moon on Weibo, which contained a watermark detailing the phone on which it was shot. Although the exact details have been clumsy edited, they seem to read "Huawei P30 Pro" and "Leica Quad Camera."
Huawei has announced that the P30 series will be launched in Paris on March 26 using a teaser trailer that is strongly implied by its camera's zoom would be an important feature. Former Huawei devices, such as The P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro have already included television lenses, though only limited to "just" three cameras, so it's currently unclear what feature this fourth camera could serve. It may enlarge the zoom level or alternatively offer an extra wide field of view.
The number of cameras that a manufacturer can press on the back of his flagship phone has become a competition in recent years. Samsung was the first to include four with the Galaxy A9, which used its three additional zoom lenses, ultra wide shots and depth-of-field detection. But there are rumors that HMD's upcoming Nokia 9 PureView could include as many as five rear cameras.
While several back cameras are an objective specification that manufacturers can point out as evidence of their phone camera quality, we still believe that Pixel 3 produces the best photographs from any available smartphone. Ultimately, the best cameras are still single.
