You’ve undoubtedly experienced the annoyance of coming across a dazzling night scene, only to find that your camera can’t recreate it exactly as it appears. Low-light photography has always been challenging for smartphone cameras, as insufficient lighting brings negative effects on image rendering.
There are capable devices, of course – but they’re hefty SLR cameras that must be used in conjunction with a tripod, or expensive phones that cost a proverbial arm and a leg.
HUAWEI nova 7i challenges the status quo by embodying something different with its powerful inventive camera technologies. Rather than an exclusive realm of the highly-skilled or the highly-priced, night photography is now accessible to all with the Huawei Nova 7i.
The nova 7i features five AI-powered cameras that generate pristine images at every touch of the shutter. The rear 48MP Quad AI setup includes a 48MP ultra-HD sensor, 120° ultra-wide angle camera, macro lens and depth sensor together in an avant-garde design. A 16MP front camera renders every shot in high resolution, with vivid, authentic colors.
The 48MP main sensor for the rear camera system boasts extraordinary imaging capabilities, with its ultra-large 1/2-inch sensor size and wide f/1.8 aperture. In darker settings, an in-house “4-in-1 pixel fusion” technology automatically kicks in to ensure much higher photosensitivity, therefore guaranteeing first-rate performance despite of the unsatisfactory lighting.
The nova 7i also allows you to shoot at night without a tripod, thanks to the Huawei-exclusive Super Night Mode, realized through the collaboration between blistering processing from Kirin 810 chipset and state-of-the-art AI algorithms. Basically, with a press of the shutter multiple pictures will be taken during the long exposure that lasts from 2 to 6 seconds, and they will be intelligently synthesized to create one final sharp, stunning, noise-free image. You may even be able to capture the starry night just as how your eyes perceive it!
The phone’s 16MP front camera can also utilize “4-in-1 pixel fusion”, a customized Super Night Selfie Mode and AI to achieve 2μm-equivalent levels of photosensitivity. Therefore, your selfies are comprehensively optimized even in unfavorably-lit surroundings, with your facial features presented in captivating lifelike depth, natural lighting effects, optimal brightness and clarity. While over- or under-exposure is common in many selfie photos, none can be found in the picture below (taken with nova 7i).
