Huawei Mate 40 Features Always-On Front Camera

Huawei announces its Mate 40 series smartphones with new camera features. The front camera implements an always-on vision-based user interface:

"HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ are set to revolutionise how consumers integrate smartphones into their lives with new user-centric features including Smart Gesture Control, which allows total hands-free control of your device. Simply hover your hand over the device to wake it up or navigate your phone by swiping left, right, up and down. There is also an air press gesture for call answering.

A device that is always there for you, the all new dynamic Eyes on Display on HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro and HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro+ can be activated at a glance, with fully customisable interactive displays hosting all the information you need from your phone. The ring of incoming calls can be reduced by making eye contact with your phone."

Here are official Huawei demos of its low-power vision camera:


Few other innovations in Mate 40 cameras:


  1. Seems exaggerated... Surely, the sensor is x2.67 larger - but that wouldn't explain the claimed low light performance. In other shots they're providing the ISO value, f# etc. But in the low light image exposure, ISO and f# are missing. Looks very deceiving to me...

    1. The ryyb sensor collect more light compare to a standard rgb sensor
