Possible Mate 20 camera features include Underwater Mode & Video Bokeh
Alleged Huawei Mate 20 render
Earlier today, Huawei published a camera-centric Mate 20 teaser which was followed shortly after by actual images of the Mate 20 Pro. Up until now, only details about the individual camera sensors on this device have leaked. But thanks to a new APK teardown, a variety of possible photography features have been revealed.
Overall, it seems as though the features are centered around recording video. Kicking things off appears to be a new Underwater Mode which, according to strings of code, this will allow users to “take clear shots in underwater environments.” By pressing the volume down button owners of the device will be able to take a picture, and volume up will open up access to video recording. Another interesting detail is the fact that Huawei references its own upcoming waterproof cases. This means that the Underwater Mode will not be limited to water-resistant flagships.
Another interesting feature comes in the form of AI Zoom. This will automatically adjust the zoom level according to the distance and positioning of the subject in the video. Unfortunately, this will not work with one of the other features Huawei is preparing: AI Cinema. Much like the other ones, AI Cinema works when recording video and allows users to apply a number of different filters: AI Color, Background Blur, Fresh, Vintage, and Suspense. Completing Huawei’s range of new features is one that may prove to be extremely popular: Video Bokeh. As the name suggests, this will blur the background and will also add artificial shapes to the background in order to create the illusion of light.
As these features are still not live, there’s no guarantee that they will be made available to users. But if they are, consumers should expect them to arrive on the Mate 20 series which itself will be announced on October 16 alongside the FreeBuds 2 Pro earphones.
