Huawei P20 & P20 Pro with Kirin 970 SoC & 24MP Selfie Camera Launched

Huawei P20, P20 Pro launch LIVE UPDATES: Expected price, specs, and features

"The HUAWEI P20 Series builds on the legacy of our collaboration with Leica".

The Huawei P20 sports an extended, bezel-less RGBW display and a Leica dual-lens camera system.

The new Huawei P20 Pro camera has been named the best smartphone camera on the market for image and video quality by DxOMark, as well as a "game changer" for phone photography. "Hawed P20 features 5.8" LCD display with 1,080 x 2,244 pixels resolution.

Since these phones are powered by the Kirin 970 processor which has a dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit, the P20 family comes with some neat AI tricks.

Another bonus for Mate 10 owners is the ability in the P20 series to disable the AI-assisted scene recognition.

He added that there are "many challenges and limitations" to implement AI on smartphones, particularly in battery consumption, data transmission, latency and efficiency, while phone makers such as Huawei will also have to make sure the developer ecosystem is tapping on this capability. Now the third biggest smartphone manufacturer globally, Huawei will be unveiling its next flagship smartphone under the P-series today at a special event in Paris.

And something called 4D predictive focus can magically work out where a movement is taking place and track it - giving users blur-free photos. There's a monochrome lens, RGB lens and telephoto lens, paired with 40, 20 and 8 megapixel sensors respectively. The secondary shooter directly beneath is a 20MP monochrome shooter like on the P20.

The camera can record 4K video. This time on All Hands on Tech, we got to take a first look at the new P20 and P20 Pro at a Huawei event in New York City. The Huawei P20 Lite packs a 3000mAh battery, and it has 18W fast charging.

At around 7.8mm thick, the P20 Pro is relatively slim. There's "Twilight", which flows between black and petrol blue, and "Pink Gold", which transitions between gold and pink. It costs €679 in Europe. The phone has 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, along with a hybrid microSD/dual SIM slot.

EMUI 8.1, fully customisable with AI support, includes Huawei Share 2.0 to seamlessly share files between Huawei phones, PCs and Macs.

For those cameras, Huawei has apparently spared no expense. The camera also offers 5x magnification by combining digital zoom and optical zoom (from its telephoto lens). Apertures sit at f/1.8, f/1.6, and f/2.4 respectively.

I, obviously, didn't have any issues during the initial play with the P20 Pro. Inside the box is a pair of USB-C earphones, a United Kingdom charger, an European Union charger, two USB-C cables, a USB-C to 3.5mm audio adapter, a leather case, and a VIP card. Their signature brand aesthetic gets together with Huawei's mobile engineering expertise to set a new standard in luxury smartphones.

Finally, there's quick wireless charging - another first for a Huawei device - and a pair of colors: black and red.

The Mate RS design is a handsome phone.

It has eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores and the Mali-T830MP2 GPU, which means that its specifications aren't anything to write home about in 2018. It has 4 GB RAM and comes with 64GB of storage. Both include Full HD+ resolutions. It's also one-upping the rest of the smartphone camera world with a whopping three cameras on the back. It supports 3D Portrait Lightning and Portrait Mode as well.
