Huawei P20, P20 Pro launched, but good luck buying in the US

Huawei is not afraid to refer to itself as an upstart in the smartphone world, and Richard Yu, the head of the company's consumer business, is often heard bashing the competition.

The P20 comes in a range of four colours: Twilight, Pink Gold, Black and Midnight Blue.

"The challenge for Huawei is to strengthen its brand personality and to steal more market share in Europe, given its absence in the U.S. The choice of Paris to launch a new flagship smartphone is interesting". The USP of this phone is that it features Triple Rear Cameras comprising of 40MP RGB sensor, 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens. With f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 wide aperture to capture crisp, clear details, the Huawei P20 Pro also includes a brand new Leica 3x telephoto (VARIO-SUMMILUX-H 1:1.6-2.4/27-80ASPH) lens for long-range photography of up to 5x Hybrid Zoom.

While the testers claimed that P20 Pro delivered "excellent" images in bright light, low-light continued to impress thanks to the unusually large sensor.

Huawei AIS (AI Image Stabilization) steadies handheld night shots to make long exposure images of up to six seconds without a tripod possible. In this photography mode, the camera predicts moving objects and focuses on them with extreme efficiency to capture minute details of objects in motion.

In the overall scores, the Huawei P20 Pro achieved a 109 beating the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus which now sits at third place (after the P20) with a score of 99.

Both the devices feature a 24MP selfie camera with artificial intelligence (AI) beautification and 3D portrait lighting. We would argue that no one needs such highly-detailed images of their face, but Huawei has a history of applying a range of age-defying filters and tweaks to its selfies to make you look younger, more radiant and generally less exhausted.

Both run on Android 8.1 filtered via Huawei's EMUI skin and support Google's ARCore kit.

At an worldwide launch event held in Paris, Huawei unveiled the P20 and P20 Pro.

One other thing you won't find on the P20 Pro is a headphone port. The P20 Pro and Porsche Edition Mate RS got a triple camera array on back. Pricing for the Porsche Design Mate RS starts at Euro 1695 (or approx Rs 1,36,525) and goes up to Euro 2095 (or approx Rs 1,68,743).

The display is a 6-inch OLED 2K curved-at-the-sides screen, a feature first seen on rival Samsung smartphones. The P20 houses a 5.8-inch FullView LCD RGBW full HD+ display and a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the face. Both the batteries support Huawei SuperCharge fast charging as well.
