Huawei today unveiled two flagship P20 series smartphones for 2018. The 6.1-inch P20 Pro features the world’s first Leica triple camera while the 5.8-inch P20 (non-pro model) has dual Leica cameras. Both feature a notch on the front like iPhone X to conceal the front camera and sensors. Also, like iPhone there’s no headphone jack either.

The Huawei P20 Pro features a Leica triple camera with the highest total pixel count on a smartphone. The camera configuration is comprised of a 40-megapixel RGB sensor, a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor with telephoto lens. It also features an exclusive Leica color temperature sensor for better color reproduction. With f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 wide aperture to capture crisp, clear details, the 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. The P20 Pro’s highly sensitive image sensor captures low light photos with up to ISO 102400.

The Huawei P20 builds on its predecessor’s foundation with a Leica dual camera featuring a 12-megapixel sensor with a pixel size as high as 1.55 μm, and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, enhancing the HUAWEI P20’s ability to capture photos in low-light settings.

The Huawei P20 Series devices support six-axis stabilization and 960fps super slow motion. With Ultra Snapshot mode, the devices can capture an image in as little as 0.3 seconds by just double clicking the down volume button, even from an off screen.

Brand new to Huawei’s advanced camera system is 4D predictive focus, predicting moving objects and focusing on them with extreme efficiency to capture minute detail. The P20 Series also features AI-Assisted Composition, providing intelligent suggestions to frame group shots and landscapes.
