Today in Paris, Huawei is presenting a new flagship smartphone P20 and P20 Pro with the world’s first triple camera. Also, the smartphone of the third generation Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS with a distinctive design was introduced. Novelties have improved cameras with increased photosensitivity, and the triple camera Leica model P20 Pro has a record resolution among mobile cameras.
The company focuses specifically on the photographic component of new smartphones. In particular, the innovative functions of photography are mentioned, among which Master AI is a professional photo assistant on the basis of artificial intelligence and Huawei AIS, which is an intelligent image stabilization technology.
Model P20 Pro is equipped with triple Leica camera, consisting of a set of sensors: 40-Mp RGB-sensor, 20-megapixel monochrome and 8-megapixel sensor equipped with a long-focus lens. For the color reproduction and clarity of the image is responsible for Leica color technology with a dedicated image stabilizer ISP and a color temperature sensor for light.
The aperture of the objectives is f / 1.8, f / 1.6 and f / 2.4. In addition, the P20 Pro is equipped with a Leica VARIO-SUMMILUX lens with 3x optical zoom. Digital zoom brings the magnification to 5 times. The sensor with a diagonal of 1 / 1.7 inches (about 7.76 × 5.82 mm) is able to take pictures even in very low light, increasing the sensitivity to ISO 10 240.
Smartphone Huawei P20, in turn, received a new dual camera Leica, which consists of a 12-megapixel color module (pixel size 1.55 nm) and a monochrome 20-megapixel module, thanks to which the camera works out at night.
Both smartphones are equipped with 24-megapixel frontal self-cameras.
Smartphones of the P20 series received Kirin 970 processors equipped with a dedicated neural computing module. It is used for advanced work with cameras, identifies 19 different kinds of scenarios and subjects, selecting optimal shooting parameters. In the cameras of Huawei smartphones, predictive 4D-autofocus is implemented, when the camera predicts the direction of movement of the object, while retaining focus on it.
Also appeared an intelligent composition assistant (AI-Assisted Composition), giving recommendations on the composition of the frame when shooting group portraits and landscapes.
Both models received screens of Huawei FullView with thin frames: P20 – with a diagonal of 5.8 inches, and P20 Pro – with a diagonal of 6.1 inches (2240 × 1080 pixels). In addition to the new color, both models of the P20 series will be available in black and “midnight blue” versions of the body color, as well as in “golden champagne” and “rose gold”. The battery capacity is 3400 and 4000 mAh for the younger and older models, respectively.
