The Huawei P50 series, which is expected to be released next year, will reportedly integrate innovative liquid lens technology to greatly improve focusing speed. The company wants to once again make a big change in smartphone imaging with a new patented liquid lens technology that is said to achieve focusing in milliseconds, almost like the human eye. The filmmaking rate of the new Huawei liquid lens camera module is reported to be nearly 100 percent. A new report says that liquid lenses will be mass-produced and commercialized in 2021.
The report says this new liquid lens technology could be integrated into the Huawei P50 series next year. Huawei patented this new technology on December 25 last year and announced it in April this year. It is expected to be mass-produced and commercialized next year. This liquid lens technology will be integrated into the telephoto lens module on the phone.

The report explains that the traditional zoom lens focus works on the principle of adjusting the focal length between two lenses with a fixed focal length. The new technology will use liquid to focus light and change the shape of the liquid by passing electricity through it to control the imaging.
"Huawei's technical solution can be used to power liquid lens motors to meet performance requirements such as autofocus and optical image stabilization while improving motor reliability in abnormal operating conditions such as bumps and falls," the report added.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Huawei is embarking on camera hardware innovations. It was also the first to introduce a periscope lens on a smartphone - on its Huawei P30 Pro, which was launched in 2019. This new technology has enabled smartphone manufacturers to integrate large zoom lenses without the module sticking out of the rear frame. Periscope lenses use a mirror reflection method to adjust the zoom before light falls on the image sensor.
