Rumored Huawei P20 could have three rear camera lenses

Mobiles

The Huawei P20 is slated to launch in March and, while recent leaks have focused on its iPhone X-esque notch, Huawei’s official invite might have outed its big distinguishing feature: a whopping three rear-facing cameras.

In a market where dual-lens setups haven’t quite become the majority – the Google Pixel 2 and iPhone 8 get by just fine with only one – leap-frogging over the competition with three lenses might seem like overkill. But, a look back at a 2017 leak might illustrate what Huawei has in mind for its triple play of lenses.

Is the next Huawei P-series going to be an imaging powerhouse? A digital artist at one of the company’s creative agencies added these “PCE Series” ads to their portfolio — claiming 40MP, 3 lens rear (5x hybrid zoom) + 24MP selfie, all Leica-co-developed. pic.twitter.com/t8w3VlL55LDecember 6, 2017

Given the uncharted territory of putting three lenses in a smartphone, it’s hard to say exactly how it will fit into Huawei’s equation. Its traditional duo of lenses at work in phones like the Huawei Mate 10 Pro already cover monochrome and RGB duties – so what’s left?

It seems most likely that it will use lens number three for depth-sensing, or it could combine that with a wide-angle capability.
