Huawei is unabashedly one of those brands that prides itself as the pioneer of its field, but it has good reason to call dibs on its tech. It brought us the first triple-branded phone (hello Leica and Porsche), the first 40W supercharging capability and the first high-performance mobile AI chipset. Talk about geeky. It’s now upping the ante to capture us better—through the square configuration of four eyes.
“Which do I look at?” you may ask. It really depends. Another world-first, the Wide angle shoots at 40 megapixels for the Pro at an aperture of up to f1.8, lending to a natural portraiture. Specs aside, you’ll find the difference that the Ultra Wide angle provides is pretty impressive. It warps the frame enough to see almost double of a standard lens without giving that peculiar distortion wide angles are prone to. The Ultra Wide also works as a Macro because of the level of detail it catches. But if we’re talking selfies, just use the front-facing camera. It’s a whopping 24 megapixels.
Don’t fear getting carried away with the Instagram-esque filters and in-built ‘bokeh’ options. Huawei is throwing in more than vanity functions. The real-time translations, where you hover over a foreign language and see a readable one, still makes us feel like we’re truly living the future. Now you can hover over other objects and let the AI tell you things like how many calories is in that apple in front of you; we’re still waiting to hear back from Huawei about how this works with mee pok.
And when you finally falter in faith in other smartphone brands, here’s the clincher—reverse wireless charging. This won’t be a case where you run out of battery, because c’mon, 3,400mAh lifespan. This will be when your friends run out of battery, have forgotten to bring a charger, and you're all in the middle of nowhere. You whip out your reverse wireless charging, which is crazily compatible across all devices, and watch their jaws drop as their phone screens light up. It’s like that kid who always tops the cohort. Four eyes–so damn good at everything.
