Huawei's P20 is a shiny, extravagant phone

  • Huawei P20, P20 Pro Full Specifications, Price Revealed; Porsche Design Mate RS Also Spotted

Huawei's latest flagship smartphone is the P20 Pro, which has not one, not two, but three cameras on the back.

Breaking that down, it's 24MP for the front-facing camera, 8MP for the telephoto, 40MP for the RGB, and 20MP for the monochrome. It is one of the first smartphones to feature in-screen fingerprint sensor.

The image quality experts gave the Huawei P20 Pro an impressive total photo score of 114, which is the highest score of any smartphone camera by quite some margin.

Huawei skipped MWC this year, instead choosing to release its new flagship smartphone, the Huawei P20 Pro, at a standalone event in Paris today! This phone features 5.8-inch FullView IPS LCD display with resolution of 2240 x 1080 pixels and aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The P20 Pro is also expected to get a 6-inch OLED display and a premium design. Given how the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS retains the 4,000mAh battery of the P20 Pro yet ships with a slightly smaller screen, it should offer better battery life, at least if you're using the device in FHD+ mode. Another notable difference is the P20's IP53 water and dust resistance rating, when the P20 Pro is IP67 rated. The new phone will be available from 28 March for Euro 649, followed by a P20 Pro from 16 April for Euro 899. The phones run on Android 8.1 Oreo and the Huawei EMUI 8.1 interface and include support for Google's ARCore platform for augmented reality apps. The leak confirms earlier reports of the Huawei P20 Pro arriving with a triple camera setup. Perhaps the bigger surprise is the under display fingerprint reader. The Pro also gets Huawei's Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset along with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

Huawei and Samsung are pushing improved smartphone cameras and artificial intelligence-assisted performance as Apple reels from reportedly lower-than-expected sales for its iPhone X, the tenth version of its most important product. It will be available in black, blue, pink, twilight, with the latter two colours being stylish gradients rather than solid colours.

There's one 8-megapixel telephoto lens that's great for photographing subjects at a distance.

Whether all of this will make for a noticeably better camera remains to be seen, but the P20's camera certainly sounds more feature-packed, despite offering superficially similar specs. That is paired with a 767MHz Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, 6GB of RAM, a generous 128GB of storage, and a 4000mAh battery in the P20 Pro. It is also the first Huawei smartphone to enable quick wireless charging. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS will be dual-SIM as standard, too.

While the majority of phones are shrinking bezels to the point where fingerprint sensors have to move to the back of the device - a practical but somewhat inconvenient placement - the Huawei P20 Pro retains the traditional home button and fingerprint sensor combo.

There's already plenty of smartphones on the market that include dual-lens camera systems but Huawei is upping the ante with its P20 Pro getting three rear snappers.
