When paired with the dual camera Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) solution and the industry’s first dual camera pixel binning technology, Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus offer superior night shot capabilities.
Huawei’s studio-level portrait features create more natural-looking photos than ever thanks to Huawei P10’s artistic imaging algorithm, which is based on extensive research of various different face shapes and skin colors. By understanding the relative position of each facial feature and the uniqueness of skin type, portrait enhancements can be applied in a customized and more natural way. The dynamic illumination enables professional studio re-lighting capabilities.
