Huawei unveils flagship P20, P20 Pro smartphones

If mobile photography is your thing, the P20 Pro looks tough to beat at the moment. On the front, the device has a 16MP camera. The Twilight shade is an iridescent color blended with a mix of purple and turquoise. Huawei feels that it might just have an enviable product on its hands with the new P20 family, which includes the standard P20 and the flagship P20 Pro.

The launch comes at a hard time in the global smartphone market: while 408 million smartphones were sold in the fourth quarter of 2017, that was a 5.6 percent decline over the fourth quarter of 2016, according to Gartner - making it the first year-on-year decline. First, we'll outline the normal config. and then move on to the totally insane "Porsche Design" version.

Both the phones come equipped with a Kirin 970 processor and brings along all the AI processing powers that are seen on the Mate 10 phones. The Mate RS comes in two storage variants - 6 GB RAM with 256 GB storage priced at 1,695 Euros (approximately Rs 1,36,280) and 6 GB RAM with 512 GB storage priced at 2,095 Euros (approximately Rs 1,68,460). Huawei have minimised the bezels, as is de-rigeur with recent flagship smartphones, and the device is IP67 water and dust resistant. The front of the phone is a weird mix of design decisions. It packs a combination of a 40MP, 8MP, and 20MP sensors on its back, and a 24MP selfie camera. The device has a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth v5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, and a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, which also doubles up as the home button. It has dual rear cameras, with a 16MP primary camera paired with a 2MP depth sensing secondary camera for portrait mode. The P20 Pro has a first-ever triple camera setup on the back.

The traditional Huawei setup that includes data from a monochrome and color sensor can be expected on the Huawei P20 Pro, but the color sensor has an extremely impressive 40 megapixels.

It also has f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 wide aperture to capture clear detailed images. This can no doubt render every facial imperfection and skin pore in stunning detail. They will be available in a choice of black, midnight blue, twilight and pink gold colours. The two smartphones run EMUI 8.1 based on Android Oreo and have an iPhone X-like notch on the upper side of the display.

DxOMark says the P20 Pro's video performance is excellent across the board, singling out its electronic video stabilisation, which bests the Google Pixel 2 and enables users to take smooth videos while walking.
