With the Huawei P20 / P20 Pro, Huawei has opposed its competition from Apple and Samsung with a new flagship smartphone, focusing even more on photography. In the Pro version, the Huawei P20 comes with a triple camera.

Rightly heard, the Huawei P20 Pro has a triple camera installed, which had not existed before. The three-lens camera of the P20 gives an interesting outlook on the future of photography, keyword: Computational Photography. According to the manufacturer, the smartphone actually “fuses” the information from all three camera modules in each situation to produce the photo. At the top of the corner sits a 12 megapixel sensor with a telephoto focal length of 80 millimeters in the small picture equivalent and aperture f / 2.4. Next are two wide-angle modules, one in the middle is the RGB sensor with 40 megapixel resolution and a f / 1.8 aperture. A little further down, the third sensor is a bit alone, the black and white chip dissolves with 20 megapixels and a f / 1.6 aperture. Between the lenses Hauwei still has an active laser autofocus with transmitter and receiver and a flash housed. The flash also has its own sensor for determining the color temperature to adapt the flash to the ambient light.

The Huawei P20 / Pro comes with the current Android 8 aka Oreo and the proprietary EMUI 8 interface. Huawei does not have its own language assistant like Samsung’s Bixby. Similar to Nokia, Huawei is also a member of the Google Enterprise program. This has the advantage, indirectly, that a reliable update supply is ensured. Because that is the requirement that the manufacturer can stay in the financially lucrative program. It can therefore be assumed that the Huawei P20 / Pro should therefore receive good support.

Huawei moves with the P20 / Pro at about the same level as the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Apple’s iPhone X. In this luxury upper class often decides a single feature or personal taste about the purchase of the smartphone. We are therefore looking forward to the results in the everyday test of the P20 / Pro.
