New Huawei P20 Pro reveals innovative triple camera setup

Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro

It's been a while since someone challenged Samsung and Google's supremacy in DxOMark's ranking for cameras in smartphones, but the day has come when they gave up the top spots in the rankings.

"Huawei is trusted by governments and customers in 170 countries worldwide", the company states.

Telecom equipment company Huawei CEO Richard Yu presents the new P20 smartphone in Paris on March 27, 2018.

Even though it's not quite as appetising a prospect as the whopping great 5x zoom you'll find on Huawei's P20 Pro, I'm still expecting a great deal from the P20's camera.

Both devices have built-in artificial intelligence (AI), combining technology and art to bring to life new smartphone experience.

The dual-SIM (Nano) Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS runs EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Huawei is the world's third-largest smartphone brand, and it has managed to do so without setting foot in the US. The smartphones are Huawei's mid-priced offerings and are expected to cost less than its flagship Mate 10 Pro.

P20 Pro has a 6.1 inch OLED display while P20 has 5.8-inch LCD screen and Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS has 6-inch OLED screen.

The Huawei P20 standard variant does not have the triple lens system, but it also boasts of a Leica-branded dual camera setup that is no slouch at all.

5 reasons Loyola-Chicago can and will win it all
Cinderella or not, MI forward Mortiz Wagner said the Ramblers are in the Final Four for a reason and shouldn't be taken lightly. Earlier in the day, the Ramblers beat Kansas State by 16 points to reach its first final four since 1963.

The Huawei P20 Pro features a Leica triple camera comprising a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor, an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens, and an exclusive Leica color temperature sensor for better color reproduction.

As a result, Huawei say the P20 Pro's highly sensitive image sensor captures low light photos with up to ISO 102400.

The gadget will also get a Kirin 970 processor with a clock frequency of 2.3 GHz and 4 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal. In addition, HUAWEI AIS steadies handheld night shots for incredible long exposure images without a tripod. In this mode, the camera predicts moving objects and focuses on them with extreme efficiency to capture minute details of objects in motion.

If true, it could be a big reason to buy the Pro as battery life continues to be a bug bear of many consumers.

The Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro feature a 24MP selfie camera** with AI beautification and 3D portrait lighting.

Additionally, the HUAWEI HiAI Ecosystem enhances a variety of app experiences.

Despite the hostility from the United States government, Huawei had invited USA media for the P20 series launch event in Paris.

The P20 has an IP53 rating for dust and water resistance while Huawei P20 Pro has an IP67 rating. Notably though, there is an under display fingerprint as well - this sensor also wakes up the smartphone if you hover a finger over it. The Mate RS (which stands for Race Sports) includes a 6-inch 2K screen with curved glass on the top and yes, it doesn't have a notch like the P20 Plus.

Porsche took the stage, taking over from Huawei, and talking up a phone made between the Huawei and Porsche Design teams, with a Mate model made not just to be as good as what Huawei was showing off, but a little better in every way, too. Huawei is also selling a Porsche Design phone with the P20 Pro's features plus more memory, an in-display fingerprint sensor and other options, set to go on sale on 12 April.
