The market is abuzz with expectations for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 to be officially unveiled tomorrow. However, there’s another smartphone to be launched this October, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, which could outperform the Samsung Galaxy Note series flagship. At least this is what Ice Universe, the regular informer on Samsung, tweets.
The Optics Section on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro Far Superior
Ice Universe has taken the pains to use colorful matrix to drive home the point that on a one-to-one comparison, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will leave the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 far behind. The combination of 40 MP (1/1.7 inch type) plus 40 MP (1/1.55 inch type) together on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will be three times larger than the one on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. This is as far as the primary sensor is concerned. When it comes to the secondary sensor, the gap between the two phones will be even wider, according to the tweet.
The tweet goes on to mention that the very fact that the lenses are larger is sufficient to let more light in allowing better exposure and better imaging as a result.
Samsung Stuck with Old Hardware
The tweet does not stop there. There’s an explanation being offered as well. According to Ice Universe, the sensors fitted on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 are the same as the ones the company had used in its Samsung Galaxy S7 in 2016. Companies like Huawei have in the meantime moved ahead and improved the technology in their cameras and are reaping the benefits. The ones you will see fit on the Huawei Mate 30 pro will be double of the last ones they would have used, making them stand out.
The South Korean phone maker has not been liberal with the processor even. Qualcomm has launched its Snapdragon 855 Plus but the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will not go beyond the previous Snapdragon 855. According to Evan Blass, the other regular one on Twitter, Huawei’s latest Kirin 990 SoC will prove to be a far superior performer than the 855. The users may get to decide which phone to buy, particularly those who wish not to wait till next year, when the Samsung Galaxy S11 will be released.
Battery size will be larger and the price of the Huawei phone much less than the Samsung phone.
Will Samsung listen and take some action or allow things to drift as they are?
