Huawei will reportedly use liquid lens in its flagship phones next year
China-based tech giant Huawei is set to deploy liquid lens technology in its flagship gadgets beginning from next year. A new tech report monitored in China says that Huawei is in the final leg of the testing process for its liquid lens, which is expected to greatly accentuate image stabilization and focus times, thus providing an improved visual experience for users. According to the China report, the focus time will be reduced to a few milliseconds which will now be at par with the focus time of the human eye.
The liquid lens technology is expected to be deployed for the telephoto camera first so that instead of moving the lenses, the module will alter the shape of the liquid through varying voltage so it focuses the light. In addition, the implementation is expected to be more durable and sufficiently impervious to shock, when compared to the non-liquid type telephoto cameras.
If we are to countenance the information from a renowned Chinese tipster, the liquid lens will likely be paired with the yet unannounced Sony IMX782 sensor to provide excellent visual quality. Of course, it will be used within the telephoto framework.
Earlier in April 2020, Huawei successfully patented the liquid lens technology for use in its smartphone camera module. The patent application was filed in December 2019 and approved after about four months. The liquid lens module includes moving a motor, camera placeholder and electronic hardware to move the liquid lens.
The goal of liquid lens technology is rapid autofocus. A liquid lens can potentially go through the entire sequence of focus in milliseconds with instantaneous lock. This also implies easier and faster tracking of objects in motion, thereby providing massive opportunities for the use of smartphone cameras as motion picture devices. Gizmochina
