Honor's Magic 3 Pro+ has an impressive camera setup

Honor has launched their new flagship, the Magic 3 Pro+, featuring a 1/1.28 inch optical format main camera. Such large sensors require large heavy lenses, and heavy lenses require high force technology like CML's SMA OIS.

Honor's new flagship has 4 high resolution rear facing sensors, 2 of which have OIS actuators. The main camera uses a Sony IMX700, which is a 50MP image sensor with 1/1.28 inch optical format, continuing the industry trend for larger sensors and larger lenses, thus setting a great demand on the OIS actuator.

VCM OIS actuators struggle to generate enough force to accurately move the lens. CML’s Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) platform technology provides a higher force than competing solutions and in a smaller form factor, making it ideal for driving heavy lenses and enabling our customers to continue their innovation, pushing the smartphone camera market further forward.
