Building on the success of P20 Pro which had the world’s first triple camera set-up at the rear, Huawei is likely to bring five cameras at the back for its next phone in the Mate series — the Mate 30 Pro, the media reported citing a new patent.

A patent filed by Huawei and submitted to the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration) has been published and shows a much larger cutout for a camera array on the back of the phone, Techradar.com reported on Thursday.

The patent was originally spotted by Mobielkopen.net.

The five sensors could be clubbed with an LED flash to form a rectangle at the back of the Mate 30 Pro.

The current flagship of the company, Mate 20 Pro comes with a triple camera system, a posh built and top-notch internals such as the 7-nm Kirin 980 chipset.

Riding on the success of the P20, Mate 20 and Nova series, Huawei in December said its smartphone shipments for 2018 exceeded 200 million units, a new all-time high for the Chinese phone maker.

Huawei surpassed Apple to become the world’s second-largest smartphone seller in the world first in the second quarter of this year and then again in the third quarter with a global market share of 14.6 per cent, according to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC).

The foldable design lets the camera system play the role of both front and rear cameras. When folded, the HUAWEI Mate X shows a view finder on both sides so even the subjects in the frame can contribute to the creative process, the company said.

As Huawei’s first 5G smartphone, the Mate X runs on the Balong 5000 chipset, which is the world’s first multi-mode 5G processor with 7nm process and thus supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G with a single chip.
