The optical format is 1 / 1.49 inches, so for the mid-range smartphones, which include the Honor 70, it is great. There is also a 50 megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens and an 8 megapixel telephoto lens that provides 3x optical zoom (this unit has an optical image stabilization system). Exclusive Honor Image Engine is responsible for editing photos and videos, including HDR mode.
