According to foreign media HC news, the liquid lens may be the next black technology in smartphone cameras. And the Huawei P50 series may be the first to be equipped.
Recently, the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) approved an important camera module patent related to liquid lenses. This patent was submitted by Huawei on December 25, 2019, and approved on April 7, 2020. According to this information, the patent includes mobile motors, camera placeholders. And electronic hardware for moving liquid lenses.
The imaging system of the liquid lens can change the focal plane within a few milliseconds to provide a clear image. Regardless of the distance of the object from the camera. Which makes the integrated liquid lens an ideal choice for shooting scenarios that require focusing at multiple distances. The moving hardware includes a stator and a moving part that moves along the optical axis. When the moving part receives power from the electric motor. It acts and presses or pulls the liquid lens through the connected spring.
The liquid lens has fast autofocus and depth detection functions. Which can provide better image stabilization and eliminate the requirements for time-of-flight (ToF) sensors and additional image stabilization hardware. And more importantly, the liquid lens takes up very little space.
Huawei is one of the best smartphone manufacturers on the market and currently uses leading camera technology. The CMOS sensor included with its P40 series can capture bright images under low-light conditions. And it is expected that the next-generation P50 will be more powerful in taking pictures.

Back to Huawei. Recently, some foreign media released a set of design drawings Huawei P50 Pro. Although this set of pictures is conceptual in nature, there are not so many wild drawings, and all this is very justified.
As shown in the figure, the conceptual version of the Huawei P50 Pro uses a curved screen design similar to the P40 series, but the position of the hole was shifted to the middle from the left.
As for the back of the phone, the phone does not match the matrix design of the camera but is divided into two parts, with four cameras on the left, and the top camera is very large. Up to three auxiliary cameras are located on the right and a flash below. In addition, the Huawei P50 Pro has 7 cameras on the back.
