“Exceptional in every field“: like this DxOMark describes the cameras of Huawei P50 Pro, testifying once again how much the entire mobile sector has lost since the “ouster” of Huawei, at the hands of the US. Competition, undeniably, is always good for the market, and therefore also for users. Waiting to understand if and when the P50 series will also be available to us, let’s see what awaits us from its photos. Meanwhile, let’s summarize the specifications of the cameras in question:
- Principal: 50 MP (12,5 MP output), 23 mm-equivalent f/1.8, OIS
- Monochrome: 40 MP (output 10 MP), 26 mm-equivalent f/1.6
- Wide angle: 13 MP, 13 mm-equivalent f/2.2
- Telephoto lens: 64 MP (16 MP output), 90 mm-equivalent f/3.5, OIS
The presence of a multi-spectrum color temperature sensorto optimize the white balance and color rendition. And even the monochrome is different than in the past, and now it really helps in improving the details and reducing the noise, especially in low light, as well as for the simulated bokeh effect.

The result is that there is little noise in any situation, together with a wide dynamic range, while the white balance it is accurate and very natural, including telephoto shots (especially during the day and over medium-long distances); and all this also applies to videos, which are then well stabilized.
The cons are some loss of focus in low light, and above all the fact that the preview image doesn’t always match the shot. Videos in particular suffer from some exposure, white balance and noise on low-light textures.
And just so as not to miss anything, the Huawei P50 Pro is first even in selfies, with good face exposure, wide dynamic range, little noise (in photos, but not videos), and just a little loss in fine detail and rare blunders of autofocus.
In short, once again Huawei is confirmed the company to beat in the photographic field, it’s just a pity that its competition does not scare the big names in the sector as in the past.
