Meet The Huawei P20 Pro - The World's First 6.1 Inch Smartphone With 3 Cameras


Huawei unveiled the P20 and P20 Pro at an event in Paris  on the 27th of March and a lot of what the devices came with was exactly what was speculated.
I'll start with the Huawei P20 Pro. Its main highlight is the “Leica Triple Camera”: a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor with a f/1.6 lens; an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.4 telephoto lens and optical image stabilization; and a 40-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 lens.

The 40-megapixel sensor covers an area 223% larger than the iPhone X, and 170% larger than the Galaxy S9+. It's very sensitive to light - reaching ISO 102,400 (most smartphones reach ISO 6,400).
The P20 Pro is more of a camera than a smartphone. It's the perfect photography companion.

Additionally, it has four different focus techniques here: laser, phase detection, depth and contrast detection. The camera has a “predictive focus” that detects motion and automatically chooses the mode that will give clearer images.

There is also a 3x optical zoom (and a 5x “hybrid zoom”); the colour temperature sensor, to improve the white balance in the images; and a dedicated ISP (image signal processor).
And, of course, the camera has some artificial intelligence capabilities. Basically, the P20 Pro (just like P20) selects the most suitable mode for the scene, be it “macro” , “landscape” or “portrait” with the blurred background. Moreover, the P20 Pro can record slow-motion video at 960 frames per second in HD resolution, just like the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Now let me focus on the other specs. The P20 Pro is Huawei’s first smartphone with OLED screen. They are 6.1 inches with Full-HD+ resolution (2240 x 1080) and 18.7:9 aspect ratio.
Yes, the screen has a notch at the top for the 24-megapixel front camera. But unlike the iPhone X, you can hide the “notch” in the settings – this places a black bar to hide it.

The fingerprint reader sits on the bottom of the device, which you can also use as the Back/Home/Multitasking buttons through gestures.. There is also 2D face unlocking system is available with the front camera.

Under the hood there is a Huawei Kirin 970 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, 4000 mAh battery and IP67 resistance to water and dust. It has an aluminium frame and glass back, but lacks support for charging wirelessly. You can't win 'em all can you?

In turn, the Huawei P20 features a 5.8-inch screen with Full-HD+ resolution and notch – which you can also hide in the settings. The panel is LCD instead of OLED. The fingerprint reader is on the bottom as well.

It has  a Kirin 970 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and 3400 mAh battery. Its body, also of aluminium and glass, is only resistant to splashes (specification IP53). So don't go swimming with this baby.

The front camera has 24 megapixels, while the rear camera is “only” dual, with monochrome sensor 20 megapixels and colour (RGB) of 12 MP.
Both the P20 and P20 Pro run on Android 8.1 modified with the EMUI interface. Both will be available in the colours black, blue, pink and twilight – a very striking gradient of blue, purple and turquoise .

I'm predicting this devices will cost above N200,000 ..unless Huawei is willing to give customers some discount and give other OEM's a run for their money
