Honor Files Patent for Liquid Lens Technology

Honor, a subsidiary of Huawei, has filed a patent for a new liquid lens technology that could be used to make smartphone cameras smaller and more compact. The patent, which was published by the Chinese Patent Office on July 2, 2023, describes a liquid lens that consists of a base, a membrane, and a flexible medium. The base contains a chamber that is filled with a liquid. The membrane is placed over the chamber and is used to control the shape of the liquid. The flexible medium is placed between the membrane and the base and is used to transmit light.

The patent application states that the liquid lens can be used to adjust the focus of a camera without the need for a mechanical motor. This could make it possible to create smartphone cameras that are smaller and thinner than current models. The patent application also states that the liquid lens can be used to create cameras with different focal lengths, which could be useful for taking photos of objects at different distances.

Honor is not the only company that is working on liquid lens technology. Other companies that are developing liquid lens technology include Apple, Samsung, and Google. It is possible that liquid lens technology could become a standard feature in smartphones in the future.

The patent application was filed on March 10, 2022, and it is still pending approval. If the patent is approved, Honor could begin to use the liquid lens technology in its smartphones in the future.
