Huawei P20 and P20 Pro launched: Specs, features

A big punch to Huawei, as the Best Buy will discontinue as a smartphones retailer

This is evident by the presence of a triple-camera system on the Huawei P20 Pro, the first in the world. The front camera comes with facial enhancement features.

You probably won't ever see it in a USA store, but last night Huawei announced its newest flagship smartphone, the P20 Pro.

For cameras, this is where things get interesting.

A Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS was also launched alongside the two phones.

With the standard P20 Pro, it has an iPhone X-style front camera notch and a thick bottom "chin" bezel. Multiple cameras also allow for depth estimation, and make possible artificial Bokeh and more pleasing portraits.

The Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS runs Android 8.1 Oreo and is powered by a 4000mAh.

I got the chance to test the P20 Pro for about 45 minutes ahead of the device's launch, and in limited testing, the phone was, indeed, able to capture sharper images at 5X zoom than the iPhone X. There's also a USB-C port, IP67 water and dust resistance, NFC, and an IR blaster. It has a resolution of 2,244 by 1,080 pixels, which gives you 429 pixels per inch (ppi) and keeps to the same 18.7:9 aspect ratio of the bigger P20 Pro.

Porsche Design and Huawei have worked in tandem to develop a smartphone that fuses together the two brands' DNA, wealth of experience in design and technology, industry-leading expertise and exceptional performance.

Huawei dedicating actual real estate to house a fingerprint reader feels weirdly outdated. For navigation, the phone uses on-screen buttons, which erroneously aren't shown in the press renders. Unfortunately, that third sensor really looks tacked on. This is the first triple-camera system we've seen on a smartphone, and the numbers here are just huge.

While many competitor phones now come with dual rear cameras, the P20 Pro carries separate monochrome, colour and telephoto lens on its rear panel. The Leica made camera optics include a 12 MP optically stabilised f/1.7 lens as well as a 20 MP monochrome lens. The overkill mentality applies to the front camera, too, which has a whopping 24MP sensor. The P20 twins are available in a variety of colours with several layers of NCVM optical coatings underneath the glass back.

Jan Becker, CEO Porsche Design Group, said: "Both Porsche Design and Huawei seek to imagine and develop products that stand for precision and perfection, intelligent functionality and highly sophisticated design". It also features a second fingerprint scanner at the back which can be used to access the secure area of the phone.

But wait, there's more!

The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a sleek design which sadly has the notch on top of the full-screen display. If the 256GB, $2,100 version isn't good enough for you, there is also a 512GB version for €2,095 ($2,600).
