Huawei P20 and P20 Pro smartphones launched all you need to know;
Huawei has launched the P20 series, in Paris which includes three phones, the Huawei P20,P20 Pro and the Porsche design mate RS. We are hoping that the rest of the bunch make it to the Indian coast soon.
March 2018 hasn’t ended completely and we have seen three or four, big phone launches already. Samsung has been working overtime to push its S9 series and the newly launched Note 9 series, Huawei with the P20 Pro, has hit a home run for this season.
The P20 will be available in 2 colours i.e Graphite Black & Midnight Blue, and the P20 Pro will get two additional gradient colour versions called the Twilight and the Pink Gold. Out of the two phones, we are really excited about the Pro version. Why? Because it has three cameras. Correction, three Leica cameras built into the chassis.
The phones feature a glass back and prominent Leica branding on the back. On the front is a 18.7:9 ratio, 2244 x 1080 pixels (~ 408 ppi density) OLED screen which features a smaller “than iPhone X” notch. Just below the screen is a ﬁngerprint sensor.
The phone runs on an octa-core HiSilicon KIRIN 970 chipset, with four cores working at 2.4GHz and the other four cores running at 1.8Ghz. This device also gets the top of the line, MALI G72MP12 GP. This entire set up is powered up by a 4000 mAh battery in the P20 Pro. The P20 however, gets a 3400 mAh battery.
Huawei P20 Pro:-
The star feature on the P20 Pro, is a three camera set up. Camera one is a 40 MP RGB f/1.8 sensor by Leica, the second camera is a dedicated monochrome 20 MP f/1.6 sensor. Both these sensors are housed in an iPhone like casing. The third camera is a 8 MP f/2.4 telephoto lens. All the rear cameras get AIS ( All Image Stabilisation, a mixture of optical and digital image stabilisation) and 5x zoom. The front camera is also a beast in itself, being a 24 MP selﬁe camera with all the latest bells and whistles in the camera application. Needless to say, this makes the device 4K video
Taking into consideration, both software and hardware upgrades in terms of camera, the powerful sensors and the smart UI, this phone , in our opinion has come the closest to pixel in terms of AI functionalities.
The Huawei P20 will probably be priced at ~ INR.52000, whereas the P20 Pro will cost ~ INR. 72,000.
