Huawei recently launched a new Huawei P50 product line including two versions P50 and P50 Pro. This year’s generation is claimed by Huawei to bring significant camera upgrades thanks to new hardware and algorithms applied. This is also the last Huawei smartphone to carry the Leica logo.
DxOMark page also recently posted an article evaluating the camera performance of the Huawei P50 Pro. And as is the tradition every time a new Huawei smartphone is released, Huawei P50 Pro continues to “dominate” the ranking of smartphones with the best camera in the world, with an overall score of 144 points.
Remind a little bit about the camera parameters of Huawei P50 Pro.
Huawei P50 Pro:
– 50MP f/1.8: Wide-angle camera, 23mm conversion focal length, OIS, laser focus
– 64MP f/3.5: Potential 3.5X telephoto camera, 90mm conversion focal length, OIS, 100X combined zoom
– 13MP f/2.2: Super wide-angle camera, 13mm . conversion focal length
– 40MP f/1.6: Monochrome camera
– Color temperature sensor supports white balance
This year Huawei “revives” the monochrome sensor, which has been dead since the launch of the P20 Pro in 2018. This sensor should theoretically help improve image detail and reduce noise, especially Especially useful when shooting in low light conditions. In addition, this sensor also acts as a depth sensor to support portrait photography.
According to DxOMark’s assessment, Huawei P50 Pro achieved 149 points for photography, 116 points for video recording and 107 points for zoom, total conversion score of 144 points, ranking 1st in DxOMark’s ranking. Previously, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra took the leading position with 143 points.
In terms of imaging capabilities, the Huawei P50 Pro excels in all conditions. The captured images are highly appreciated by DxOMark, from detail, color reproduction, human skin tone and dynamic range. This year’s P series has given more natural image color tones, especially when photographing people, the color of the skin is reproduced most faithfully, the photos taken are not too “artificial”.
The only minus point is about the live-view screen as the preview image often has a marked difference from the final shot, especially in high-contrast lighting conditions. This disadvantage exists on many generations of Huawei smartphones because Huawei often applies photo editing algorithms after the photo has been taken to improve image quality.

While the photography score is impressive, with the video recording ability, the Huawei P50 Pro does not bring too much improvement. However, DxOMark still appreciates the AF (autofocus) capabilities of the P50 Pro.
In the ranking of the top 10 smartphones with the best camera selected by DxOMark, there are 4 Huawei smartphones on the list, respectively P50 Pro, Mate40 Pro +, Mate40 Pro and P40 Pro.
