DxOMark announces Mate30 Pro 5G camera with 123 points

DxOMark website officially announced the Huawei Mate30 Pro 5G camera score, including 134 points for taking pictures, 102 points for video shooting, a total of 123 points, exceeding Huawei Mate30 Pro, Xiaomi CC9 Pro The Premier Edition won the first place on the DxOMark mobile phone list.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is the 5G version of Huawei’s latest flagship smartphone, and it has the same camera hardware on paper as Huawei Mate 30 Pro LTE that has been tested. Therefore, in theory, any difference in camera performance should be attributed to changes in software and tuning optimization.

The rear camera is equipped with four separate modules, including a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor for 3D depth measurement in bokeh mode. The main wide-angle camera lens has a 40MP Quad-Bayer sensor and an f / 1.7 aperture lens. This telephoto camera uses a 3x lens with a focal length of 80mm. There is also an ultra-wide-angle camera with a large 1 / 1.54-inch sensor and fast f / 1.8 aperture.

Camera main specifications:

Four lens settings

  • Main lens: 40MP 1 / 1.7-inch sensor, equivalent to 27mm f / 1.6 aperture lens, PDAF, OIS
  • Ultra wide-angle: 40MP 1 / 1.54 inch sensor, equivalent to 18mm f / 1.8 aperture lens, PDAF
  • Telephoto lens: 8MP 1 / 4-inch sensor, equivalent to 80mm f / 2.4 aperture lens, PDAF, OIS
  • ToF 3D depth sensor camera

Dual LED flash

4K video, 2160p / 60fps (default 2160p / 30fps)

Compared with the 4G version, the biggest difference is that the Kirin 990 5G chip uses the new ISP5.0. For the first time, the BM3D (Block-Matching and 3D filtering) SLR hardware noise reduction technology is implemented on the mobile phone chip. The dark scenes are more bright and clear. Therefore, the Huawei Mate30 Pro 5G version has a stronger upgrade on the chip than the Huawei Mate30 Pro. Relatively speaking, the front camera has better noise reduction technology, and the night scene is better and brighter.

The LTE version of Huawei Mate 30 Pro has excellent performance in all test areas. Now, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G has taken the top spot. There is no doubt that the phone in most cases took pictures and video quality very similar to the LTE model, but software tuning and optimization have improved in some key areas.

The most important improvement is slightly better detail and noise management, autofocus is more stable under zoom; when shooting in very weak light, the effect will be slightly better, and when using bokeh mode, the dynamic range is also better Wider. In video mode, autofocus, detail, and noise have also been improved. The disadvantage is that the field of view of the effective focal length of the Mate 30 Pro ultra-wide-angle camera is not wide compared to the actual product, but now the field of view has become smaller under the new anti-distortion algorithm.

Overall, the camera difference between the Mate 30 Pro LTE model and the 5G version is not large, but it can be detected. Therefore, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G tops the list in the DXOMARK Camera ranking. For the person with a mobile phone camera, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is a phone of choice.
