Huawei launches new P20 smartphone series

Image Source Android World

The event begins at 3 PM CEST, which is around 6:30 PM in India.The world's third-largest smartphone maker will be live streaming the event through its official YouTube channel.

With camera-rich features and starting prices that analysts expect to be aggressive, the P20 series represents Huawei's new attempt to compete with Samsung's Galaxy S9 and the iPhone X in the increasingly look-alike market for smartphones.

Huawei and Samsung are pushing improved smartphone cameras and artificial intelligence-assisted performance as Apple reels from reportedly lower-than-expected sales for its iPhone X, the tenth version of its most important product.

Essentially, this configuration means you should be able to take really sharp and detailed images when using just the 40MP RGB camera, but the 20MP monochrome lens allows you to shoot in "proper" black-and-white, while the addition of the 8MP telephoto (or zoom) lens allows you to get much sharper, more detailed shots at long distances.

Huawei's latest flagship smartphone is the P20 Pro, which has not one, not two, but three cameras on the back.

Elsewhere, you'll find a 6.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,240 x 1,080 pixels that's powered by Huawei's own Kirin 970 octa-core processor (four Cortex-A73 cores at 2.36GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz). Huawei launched the P20 Pro, in Paris on Tuesday, along side two other down-sized - yet feature packed - phones called the P20 and the P20 Lite. It has fingerprint sensor on the front and offers connectivity options of 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11ac (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS, NFC and USB Type-C. This is worth pointing out, because the last time that we had a smartphone camera with such a high resolution was the Nokia Lumia 1020, and the problem with that is that it could take over five seconds to snap a photo. Although, what's much more impressive is the P20 Pro is also capable of capturing images at a maximum 102,400 ISO sensitivity, which should help pick up much more light in darker conditions.

It has 24 megapixels front camera with f/2.0 aperture.

Overall, you should see incredible photos out of the Huawei P20 Pro.

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

AFTER ONE of the most spoilered lead-ups yet, Huawei has launched its new flagship P20 range with an emphasis on AI and photography. Furthermore, all of Huawei's AI-aided scene adjustments return in the P20 family from their debut in the Mate 10 Pro. It costs €899 in Europe, which means that it's €220 more expensive than the regular P20. And while an irksome camera bump makes an unwelcome appearance, there's a software option to hide it. The Huawei P20 has a 12MP f/1.8 RGB lens and a 20MP f/1.6 monochrome one. The camera also offers 5x magnification by combining digital zoom and optical zoom (from its telephoto lens).

It has smaller display that P20 Pro.

The HUAWEI P20 Series devices support six-axis stabilisation and 960fps super slow motion, which is 4x higher than the standard 240fps and captures details that can not be seen with the naked eye.

Launching on Android Oreo with EMUI layered over the top and offering plenty of customisation and additional features, this still feels like an Android phone, which a few years ago Huawei phones didn't always do.

The new HUAWEI P20 Series devices are compatible with two new audio accessories: HUAWEI FreeBuds and HUAWEI Active Noise Cancelling Earphones.
