Huawei has released the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro, the newest flagship smartphones. According to many media sources, the Huawei P20 Pro has the best camera on the market right now.
Still, the two smartphones come with the “hair bangs”, a controversial element borrowed by many smartphones manufacturers from the iPhone X. Along with the P20 series, Huawei also announced the Porsche Design Mate RS model. This is actually an improved P20 model that comes with a fingerprint sensor beneath the display and a storage capacity of 512 GB.
The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a triple-camera system: 40 MP RGB sensor, 20 MP monochrome and 8 MP telephoto ( with optic stabilization ). The phone packs 3x optic zoom and 10x digital zoom. The frontal camera comes with a 24 MP sensor, which is sure to provide awesome selfies.
Just like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Sony Xperia XZ2, Huawei P20 Pro is capable of creating super slow motion videos at 960 frames per second. The maximum resolution is 720p while rival models can provide 1080p through up-scaling.
The Huawei P20 Lite model si also part of the P20 family of smartphones, which is already available on the market.
The Huawei P20 packs a dual camera system ( monochrome 20 MP sensor and RGB 12 MP sensor ) on the back and 24 MP camera in the front.
Although in the upper region the margin between the display and the case was removed on the Huawei P20, in the bottom it is pretty wide and houses an oval fingerprint sensor which can be used as a multifunctional button. Those who hate the “hair bang” can hide it from the settings. A black bar in the supper region of the display will give you the impression that it has been removed.
The two smartphones will be available in twilight black, black, blue and pink and gold.
The Huawei P20 as well as the Huawei P20 Pro come with the Kirin 970 chipset, which includes a dedicated Artificial Intelligence processor. It was used for the first time on the Huawei Mate 10 model.
Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro come with 128 GB of internal storage and displays 2240 x 1080 pixels resolution. The Huawei P20 Pro comes with 6 GB of RAM memory and a 4,000 mAh battery. Huawei P20 comes with 4 GB RAM memory and 3,400 mAh battery. The microSD memory slot is missing from both models as well as the 3.5 mm audio jack.
Huawei P20 Pro comes with IP67 certification for water and dust and the P20 comes with a weaker rating, the IP53. Unfortunately, wireless charging is missing from both models.
Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro will come with the EMUI 8.1 interface and Android 8.1 operating system.
