The Huawei Mate 20 series has so much goodness to offer when it comes to the cameras. The triple rear cameras not just offer the quality pictures but much more beyond that. The long exposure style blur, ultra-wide shots, and optical zoom are some of the characteristics of its three cameras mounted on the rear inside a square camera module.
To be specific, the Mate 20 Pro includes a 40MP Wide Angle Lens (f/1.8 aperture), a 20MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens (f/2.2 aperture), and an 8MP Telephoto lens (f/2.4 aperture). But there’s one more thing that defines its existence and it’s the AI Image Stabilisation (AIS) software that utilizes AI to ensure you get the best out of your camera.
Thanks to the Kirin 980 chipset that includes two NPU chips, the device is able to churn out more than desired. It’s packed with AI capabilities and functions. The Mate 20 Pro includes a 3D Depth Sensing Camera which allows you to scan a toy and take it to the screen. However, this scanning feature wasn’t activated at the time of release but now the company has enabled the same.
Huawei has officially launched the 3D Moderator application for the users of the Mate 20 Pro and the Mate 20 RS Porsche Edition, which enables creating own AR interactive 3D elements, known as “AI Live Model” or “3D Live Object.”There are an array of front-facing sensors that include a 24MP RGB camera sensor, a dot projector, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, an IR camera.
With the help of these sensors and AI-based algorithms, the device is able to scan the toy object and even simulate the limb movements.
But there’s a criterion while you scan the 3D objects. The scanning should be 15-25cm in length and parts of it should be at least 5cm in diameter. For animation effects, users can choose from a range of actions, including happy jumping, walking, cross-stepping, easy running.
Similar to Google’s Playground AR app, users can also take photos with the virtual toy.
