Huawei P20 and P20 Pro Launched: Full Specifications, Features, Price & Availability

Huawei P20 Series Gets Officially Launched, Huawei P20 Pro Features Lecia Triple-Lens Camera

The next smartphone is called the Huawei P20 Pro, featuring the same processor, but with 6GB RAM and 128GB of expandable storage via a MicroSD card. The P20 features a 5.8-inch display, 4GB RAM, and a 3,400mAh battery.

Operator Telia Lithuania has started pre-sales of the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. It is powered by the octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC (four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.36GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz) complete with a dedicated NPU (neural processing unit). The phone will be dual-SIM standard too, and other connectivity options include USB-C port with Display 1.2 support, Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX HD and HWA Audio, dual-band Wi-Fi. The back fingerprint sensor can also be used to unlock the device or to access a second, secure space. It also features an exclusive Leica color temperature sensor for better color reproduction. So what makes the Porsche Design Mate RS any different? The navigation home button cum fingerprint sensor at the bottom still works the same as the P10 series, double tap to go home, slide to the left for back, and to the right for opening the app taskmaster. Huawei has made a lot of inroads in mobile photography - the Huawei P10 getting decent scores from DxOMark and recently, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro breaking into the top 10. They got a primary camera of the 40-megapixel lens with AI Image Stabilization (AIS). The Huawei P20 will cost Euro 649, and the Huawei P20 Pro will amount to Euro 849 in shops of the operator.

The Huawei P20 Pro features a Leica triple camera with the highest total pixel count on a smartphone - the camera configuration is comprised of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens. The phone will be available globally from April 2018 in two storage variants - 256GB and 512GB.

The Huawei P20 Pro is clearly the flagship model of the pair, and it boasts this superiority by sporting not two, but three Leica lenses as the main camera sensor system. The phone is splash, water and dust resistant and features Dual SLS speakers with Dolby Atmos. But it does help that the Huawei P20 Pro's cameras, all three of them, have very good numbers behind them. Both the batteries support Huawei SuperCharge fast charging as well.

The P20 Pro also excelled in the zoom category delivering results that were "a cut above the rest".

The price? If you need to ask, you probably can't afford this, but for what it's worth, it will cost a cool €1,695 ($2,100, £1,482) for the 256GB version and €, 2095 ($2,600, £1,830) for the 512GB edition.

Alongside these phones, Huawei also launched Huawei FreeBuds, the wireless earbuds that have their own charging case, and Huawei Active Noise Cancelling Earphones as well.
