Huawei claims it can recognize more than five hundred different scenarios of the frame. In addition, Master AI can help with the composition of the frame. Another use of AI in the camera was Huawei AIS - image stabilization, based on the prediction of shaking hands. Huawei promises that it will be enough to remove the shaking the hands even in a long exposure short up to 6 seconds.
