There’s a lot of great stuff going on at CES – the first smartphone with in-display fingerprint sensor, behind the curtains view of Samsung Galaxy X and launch of many new smartphones, which included Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro. Last year has been an awesome one for this Chinese company as it launched many great devices under its own brand and Honor sub-brand. Many of them also remained quite successful in the market, especially the X series smartphones of its Honor sub-brand. The company even surpassed Apple to become world’s second largest smartphone seller by sales figures.
Now, in 2018 its eyes are set on the US market, and it has some pretty amazing plans to make a solid presence in this market as well. Some of those plans were revealed by Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu in an interview with Android Authority, and one of them is pretty interesting: providing a DSLR like a camera experience on smartphones!
While talking about what’s the next big thing in smartphone market Richard Yu said that according to him the next big thing will be camera’s integration with artificial intelligence. That’s an area where a lot of opportunities exist for all smartphone makers, and where considerable improvements can be done to provide something new to the consumers. He said that he was specifically interested in bringing DSLR like zoom and focal lengths to the smartphones.
Now, this type of camera experience, even if it comes to Huawei smartphones, won’t be a first. We’ve seen similar experiences on Nokia Lumia 1020, Panasonic CM1 and some other smartphones as well. So it will be interesting to see how much we want this experience when Huawei brings it to some of its smartphones.
