  • Huawei P20 Pro first impressions: triple rear cameras, fantastic low-light stabilisation

There is one 20MP monochrome lens, one 40MP RGB lens, and one 8MP telephoto lens - the latter being something Huawei had not implemented until now. The Twilight shade is an iridescent color blended with a mix of purple and turquoise. If you are looking for the current best camera in a smartphone, look no further. Both feature a notch on the front like iPhone X to hide the front camera and sensors.

The P20 Pro and P20 are both powered by Huawei's own Kirin 970 processor with built-in AI capabilities that automatically adapt camera, battery and performance settings depending on the owner's usage. While the Huawei P20 is said to come with a price tag of Euro 649 (roughly Rs. 52,200) for the 4GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant, and the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model of the Huawei P20 Pro is said to be available at Euro 899 (roughly Rs. 72,400). Indeed, the P20's IP53 rating means the phone is protected from dust ingress but not submersion in water, only a light spray.

The 5.8-inch screen HUAWEI P20 and 6.1-inch screen HUAWEI P20 Pro feature ultra-thin bezels and impressive screen-to-body ratios.

The Mate RS design is a handsome phone. There is a 24MP front-facing camera as well. Blowback from the USA government over security concerns with Huawei products, especially its networking infrastructure equipment, has caused U.S. carriers and major retailer BestBuy to yank their support. Many manufacturers have put the fingerprint sensor on the back, which works fine if you have the phone in your hand.

"In its implementation, Huawei's in-display sensor allows users to wake up the phone just by dangling a finger above the display, and then touching it to unlock the device via biometric authentication". Still, this is the first triple-lens camera, so there's definitely some magic being done there that we'll be learning more about.

Just like the P20 Pro, you get a 4,000mAh battery and SuperCharge technology. There's a monochrome lens, RGB lens and telephoto lens, paired with 40, 20 and 8 megapixel sensors respectively. This can no doubt render every facial imperfection and skin pore in stunning detail.

The P20 and P20 Pro will be available in black and midnight blue and new "gradient" colors of twilight and pink gold that appear to shift from the top to the bottom of the glass back.




The phone packs a massive 4000mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1.

The Huawei P20 Pro also has a dedicated portrait mode that adds a bokeh effect - that's a blurred background that brings the subject into focus.

Behold the Porsche Design version, which has two fingerprint readers. Apple eliminated the fingerprint reader completely in favour of facial recognition, while Vivo found a way to embed the scanner underneath the screen.

They're really nice options, and would be T3's pick of the bunch.

But wait, there's more!

But the Huawei P20 Pro has an AI image stabilisation feature that lets you take handheld night shots. The Porsche Design Mate RS is essentially the P20 Pro with a bumped up 2880 x 1440 display and 256GB of storage, in addition to the Porsche Design branding. If you're someone who fancies some more hype, Huawei is also launching a Porsche Design Mate RS that should suffice your collector's instinct.
