The Mate 30 Pro may come with unique Cine-Lens video recording in a 'matrix' camera set

The Mate 30 Pro may come with unique Cine-Lens video recording in a 'matrix' camera set
Ever since the P20 Pro, Huawei has been upping the ante in the mobile photography department with unique high-end features like 10x zoom or ToF cameras. The Mate 30 Pro will be no exception, it seems, as it will improve on the already excellent kit of the P30 Pro by adding cinematic lens to the mix. 

Huawei just filed a patent for the Cine-Lens name with the European trademark office, dug out by the Dutch from LetsGoDigital, and it is in the category of smartphone cinematographic cameras. The next big thing in Huawei's portfolio is expected to be the Mate 30 Pro in October, so we'd wager to guess that's where the technology will make cameo.

Cine lenses (from cinema lenses) are made with video recording in mind, they are fast and optimized for continuous motion, increasing the captured quality. They are superior to lenses for photos when it comes to design, features and manufacturing detail, and are usually much more expensive, too, if we are talking pro cameras. 


How exactly will Huawei apply this concept to the humble mobile photography lens, remains to be seen. Moreover, the Mate 30 Pro is rumored to also have four cameras on the back, just like the P30 Pro. The spring chicken has a 40MP main camera, 8MP one for the 5x periscope zoom, a 20 MP wide-angle lens, and a ToF camera sensor. 

Either one of these will go, or its lens will be improved sufficiently enough to carry the trademarked Cine-Lens title. Apple is expected to greatly improve on the camera features of the iPhone XI, so we can't wait to put Mate 30 Pro against the Note 10 and iPhone XI Max after the lazy summer days are gone by.

The achilles heel of Huawei's high end devices were always its video recording capabilities compared to other big guns & now they seems very ambitious to cover it up and if it works then it will definitely be the final nail on iPhone and Sammy's coffin

With that ugly camera I think apple is gonna make a return. They've been lacking in recent years.

Apple's daylight camera performance was consistently great not the best though but the way they will promote their Iphone XI even if they boast 3X zoom ifans will term that revolutionary and hail them best in the world thats how smartphone industry is working for decades now

Woah woah woah lets not get ahead of ourselves 1st lets hope they can finally sort out their Kirin CPU's and do 4k 60fps which Sammy and even Apple flagships have been doing for years

I'm 95% sure Kirin 985 will support 4K60 since it's been an industry norm for over a year now, and in case you didn't know, it is ISP that handles the video encoding, not the CPU. You say "even Apple flagships" have been doing 4K60 for years, but you do realise that Apple is the first one who has done it on a smartphone, right?

Iphones 8 were the 1st ones to do it and even Samsungs Exynos could do it but they had to limit it to 4k 30fps due to Snapdragon CPU. "I'm 95% sure Kirin 985 will support 4K60 since it's been an industry norm for over a year now" If that was the case then the P20 Pro, Mate 20 Pro and even P30 Pro would all have them by now since its been like it for over a year ;) it simple facts the CPU doesnt support it

You mean the simple fact is *ISP* doesn't support it? 4K60 was first introduced in late 2017 by iPhone 8 but became a mainstream in 2018, so obviously Kirin 970 couldn't have supported it and obviously neither could P20 Pro. Kirin 980 SHOULD'VE supported it but Huawei didn't(in their usual manner), though this time around it is highly unlikely that they will stick to 4K30 since most high end smartphones released this year already come with 4K60 capability. I find it pretty pointless to argue if it will support it or not as we both don't know what it will have, so why not just end this discussion here, yes?

"Kirin 980 SHOULD'VE supported it but Huawei didn't(in their usual manner)" Exactly my point ;)

So you were assuming that Kirin 985 won't support 4K60 because... its predecessor didn't when it could've? Right... Any company with a sane mindset won't risk not having 4K60 in late 2019, trust me lol. There's simply no reason for them not to implement it. And you'll see who's right within a few months :)
