Huawei P20 series launch

Huawei P20 series launch

Huawei has launched its P20 smartphone series in an event at Paris, France. The Huawei P20 Pro features a 6.1-inch OLED Full HD+ display on the front and is powered by the company's own Kirin 970 octa-core processor. It's the world's first Leica triple-lens camera, and it's made up of a 12MP f/1.8 RGB sensor, a 40MP f/1.6 monochrome sensor and an 8MP telephoto sensor. If you fancy some numbers though, the P20 Pro with a score of 114 (for still photos) is the best camera phone in the world, as per folks at DxOMark. In addition to the Mate phones, which Huawei targets at executives, the company also has its P-series flagships, built with creative types in mind. Speaking of the notch, that's another prominent feature of both the P20 and the P20 Pro.

Like almost all major smartphone vendors, Huawei primarily emphasized advances in the phone's camera system, including greater use of artificial intelligence to improve photo quality and a third telephoto camera lens on the back of the larger P20 Pro, a system the company continues to develop in partnership with Leica. However, those in search of more restrained colors will welcome the P20's alternative options: black, two shades of gold, and Midnight Blue.

Of course, there's always a chance the Malaysian availability of the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS changes in the coming months.

Huawei has also included a rear-fingerprint sensor on the back, as well as an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Earlier this week, Huawei got more bad news when Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai proposed a ban on allowing U.S. wireless carriers to use government subsidies toward telecommunications equipment from China-based manufacturers such as Huawei. Like the P20 Pro, it has the Kirin 970 chipset for AI photography.

There are all the usual colour options for both phones as well, but Huawei has also introduced a brand-new colour called "twilight" which you can see above. Huawei grew from just 2 percent market share in Europe three years ago to 13 percent last year, putting it just behind Apple for second place.

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 P20 also lacks the water and dust resistant present on the Pro.

The Huawei P20 ships running Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest flavour of Android, out of the box skinned with Huawei's love-it-or-loathe-it EMUI interface, whereas the Huawei P10 came with Android 7.0 Nougat when it hit the shelves back in 2017 - though Oreo can be installed on the device by way of an over-the-air (OTA) update.

On the front, the P20 Pro comes with a 24-megapixel camera with portrait lighting feature.

If you're not the type who frequently take pictures with your phone, there's likely less in the P20 or P20 Pro to pique your interest. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS will be available in Singapore in May, though the pricing has not been announced.
