Expected price, specs, and features

For starters, the Mate RS has two (2!) fingerprints readers, one on its backside and one in-display, a 512GB storage option, plus the triple Leica camera (40MP + 8MP + 20MP) setup announced for the Huawei P20 Pro.

Its 6.1-inch Oled screen is near bezel-less, but with a notch at the top for the front camera like the Apple iPhone X. Users can hide the notch by toggling an option in the settings to add a black bar.

The two P20 models are also equipped with a 24 MP selfie camera with so-called AI beautification and 3D portrait lighting, which are said to produce selfies with "healthy-looking skin tones, delicately outlined facial details and realistic 3D feature enhancements", according to the company.

Circling back to the redesigned dual-camera configuration, Huawei chose to mount the Leica-made sensors (12MP + 20MP), as well as the LED flash, vertically on the upper left-hand side of the device (think: iPhone X).

The 5.8-inch screen HUAWEI P20 and 6.1-inch screen HUAWEI P20 Pro feature HUAWEI FullView Display, ultra-thin bezels and impressive screen-to-body ratios for better viewing experiences. Huawei P20 Pro will compete with the likes of Apple's iPhone X and Samsung's Galaxy S9.

Contrary to speculation, the innovative technology is not in the new Huawei P20 nor the P20 Pro, but in the new Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS.

The phone is powered by octa-core processor with Kirin 970 chipset and Mali-G72MP12 SPU. While the Notch on the Huawei P20 Pro doesn't include technology that is as sophisticated as FaceID, it is the first P-series phone from the company to feature Face Unlock.

Huawei has also included a rear-fingerprint sensor on the back, as well as an in-display fingerprint sensor. In fact, DxOMark is quite confident that the triple camera setup of the phone is an actual game changer.




Huawei P20 vs Huawei P10 Specs: Which is more powerful?

Unfortunately, we'll see the Huawei P20 Pro ship without a headphone jack - although we will see LDAC support in order to allow higher-bitrate Bluetooth audio streaming.

The Huawei P20 Pro boasts a 6.1-inch AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery. Point a P20 or P20 Pro at a snow-covered bench, a pet or a flower, and the Neural Processing Unit inside the Kirin 970 will recognize the subject and tune the exposure parameters appropriately.

There's enough about the camera to keep us going all day, but there are other things you need to know too.

The P20 smartphone along with the P20 Pro were expected to be launched at the Mobile World Congress this year, however, Huawei instead chose the event to focus on the new laptop. On that note, Huawei claims that the P20 Pro offers beyond 2x optical zoom as it can achieve 5x Hybrid Zoom that uses digital zooming without loss in image quality. The Huawei P20's camera can automatically detect different types of scene - including everything from food to dogs - and it will adjust the settings appropriately.

The Huawei P20 Pro will retail at a global price of €900, that converts to Rs 72,300.

The P20 has a more "mainstream" dual camera arrangement, with a 12MP RGB sensor (f/1.8) and a 20MP monochrome sensor (f/1.6). Heck, its 18.7:9 display even has a notch eating away at the screen at the top - although it's roughly a third of the size of Apple's version - and the vertical camera arrangement on the rear is similar to Apple's as well. They will run on EMUI 8.1 on top of Android 8.0 Oreo. The P20 Pro scored a whopping 109, whereas the regular P20 settled down with a score of 102.
