Huawei P20 and P20 Pro Specifications Leaked Ahead of Launch

Huawei P20, P20 Pro launch LIVE UPDATES: Expected price, specs, and features

Like the Huawei P20 Pro, it also has Leica branded triple rear cameras.

"I'm certain that the current smartphone market leaders Apple and Samsung will be looking over their shoulders at Huawei as a looming threat in the high-end mobile phone market".

The P20 has an improved version of Huawei's Leica dual camera system, which pairs a traditional 12-megapixel colour camera to a 20-megapixel monochrome one, as used on the recent Mate 10 Pro.

While the 5.8-inch P20 features dual lenses around the back, the 6.1-inch P20 Pro employs not one, not two, but three Leica-branded rear cameras, each created to serve a unique objective.

Checking out the display, the P20 has a 5.8-inch RGB LCD screen while the bigger P20 Pro has a 6.1-inch OLED display, keeping to the trendy 18.7:9 aspect ratio typical of FullView displays. In Paris today, Huawei unveiled its premium P20 Pro with a Leica Triple Camera, proving dual camera set-ups are a bit passé.

We went hands on with the P20 prior to the event to see what Huawei is doing differently in 2018 for its flagship P line of phones after last year's impressive Mate 10 Pro.

Under the hood, both devices are powered by Huawei's Kirin 970 chip which is good to see - it's a really fast processor. Check out our first impressions of using the Huawei P20 Pro smartphone now. Its unique feature: it has two fingerprint sensors - one at the rear and an in-screen fingerprint sensor underneath the display. Or will the real challenge between Samsung and Huawei play out between the P20 Pro and S9+? The P20 Pro doesn't support wireless charging, but just 30 minutes charge will restore 58% battery life.

Plus, with a smaller battery, what looks like an inferior display and a less flexible camera than the P20 Pro, the Huawei P20 may struggle to catch the eye. Instead, the notch contains the earpiece, the proximity, and ambient light sensors as well as the front camera.

Caveats applied, however, even if this mode doesn't live up to its billing, it's clear the P20 and P20 Pro have a great camera setup.

But understandably, much of the focus has been on Huawei's P20 Pro, because three cameras is nothing to sneeze at, and these three cameras are paired with laser transmission tech for a four-way auto-focus, while a colourimeter is also there to understand the Kelvin values of your scene and provide the right colour profile to match. As of now, Huawei has made it clear it has no plans to offer the P20 or P20 Pro in the USA, where it will instead concentrate on the Mate line.

The design is not the main draw of the Huawei P20, since the smartphone series is not particularly innovative. In fact, Huawei is promising even higher quality, claiming the pixels on its RGB camera are 1.55um in size and that the overall sensor size is 22% bigger than the one in the Samsung Galaxy S9. The aperture sizes for the three cameras are f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 respectively, and the phone features the VARIO-SUMMILUX-H 1:1.6-2.4/27-80ASPH lens for the long-range photography offering up to 5x hybrid zoom.

The Huawei P20 gets the same core hardware as the P20 Pro, which is the same as was found in the Mate 10 Pro.

There are five colors for the P20 and four colors for the P20 Pro. They run on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with the custom EMUI 8.1 skin on top.

Both the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P10 have dual-lens cameras, but they have some differences.
