Huawei P20 Pro Features
The Just released Huawei P20 and P20 is no exception. The Huawei P20 and P20 pro feature advanced Leica cameras in a shell that looks a lot like the iPhone x, more on that below; The Huawei P20 features a 5.9inch LCD display while the P20 pro features a 6.1 inch AMOLED display.
The P20 appears to be the most beautiful smartphone from Huawei, being the most beautiful smartphone to you depends on if you willingly to purchasing the Twilight edition of the Huawei P20, Which is a mixture of blue and purple color. Other colors of the P20 and P20 Pro include the classic black, midnight blue, and champagne gold for the P20 only. Like I said earlier, the Huawei P20 takes some design ques from the iPhone x. The Huawei P20 features a notch on top of the display which isn’t as pronounced as the one on the iPhone x. The notch on the Huawei P20 can be removed or placed using the software on its user interface.
The notch on the Huawei P20 houses its call speaker and its front-facing camera. The display on the P20 and P20 pro features a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Below this display is a home button that houses the fingerprint sensor. The Huawei P20 and P20 pro also feature on-screen Nav Bar which can be removed from software, hence facilitate a full display. Switching the P20 to the back, we are greeted with a very familiar look from on the iPhone x. This is true on the P20 for the most part, but for the P20 pro, it isn’t all true. The Huawei P20 features dual rear cameras and a flash, while the P20 pro features 3 rear cameras and a flash. More on the camera later.
The Huawei P20 features a kirin 970 processor, 4GB of ram and a 3,400 man battery. The P20 features the same processor, the difference here comes from the fact that the P20 pro features 6GB of ram and beefier 4000mah battery. Moving on to the camera department which is the most hyped part of Huawei P20.
The Huawei P20 features a dual camera setup on the back featuring 12MP RGB sensor at f/1.8 and a 20MP monochrome sensor at f/1.6. The huawei P20 pro features a triple camera setup, featuring a 40MP RGB sensor; and a telephoto lens that has an 8MP sensor. Apart from these two cameras, the Huawei P20 pro also features a 20MP monochrome sensor. Huawei features a very big aperture on the main 40MP RGB camera of the P20 to accommodate more light for better low light shots. Both smartphones feature a 24MP front-facing camera The AI features of the cameras on the Huawei P20 and P20 pro where developed to make taking professional photographs more easier and make professional smartphone photographers every happy.
This AI package includes; The Huawei P20 can detect many more scene types and change settings on the fly. For instance, the camera app is able to change pretty easily between portrait mode and food mode, as long as it can detect a face in the frame. It takes a split second for the mode to switch up, but the feature seems sound. Among others, it can recognize dogs, cats, greenery, and even group shots, where the camera app will suggest to the user to shift in order to fit everyone properly into the frame. For anyone looking to get the best out of the cameras of the P20 and P20 Pro, this AI assistance can help take some of the load off figuring out the best settings. So if you are really into smartphone photography like me, Huawei has you covered.
The P20 and P20 Pro feature four different systems of autofocus – laser, phase detection, depth, and contrast combined into a system called 4D Predictive Focus. That means the camera should be able to constantly track subjects and refocus seamlessly as needed. 960fps video capture brings super slow motion and Huawei’s Ultra Snapshot feature returns, allowing you to wake up the device and snap a photo in just 0.3 seconds.
The Huawei P20 and P20 pro are certainly the best that has emerged from the smartphone department of Huawei. I personally am very pleased with its existence.
