Huawei's New P20 and P20 Pro Come with Flagship Specs and Notches

That's not a typo, it's how Huawei teased the new Huawei P20 series, a phone that will feature a three-lens camera on the back.

The traditional Huawei setup that includes data from a monochrome and color sensor can be expected on the Huawei P20 Pro, but the color sensor has an extremely impressive 40 megapixels. There's a color temperature sensor that helps in a better color reproduction. Additionally, the report says that the Huawei P20 will only have a dual camera setup with 20-megapixel and 12-megapixel sensors.

"With an overall score of 109 points, the Huawei P20 Pro sets a new benchmark for smartphone cameras on DxOMark.com, outscoring all of its closest rivals, such as the Apple iPhone X, the Google Pixel 2, and the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus by a margin that is close to or higher than 10 points". In addition, it has a 24-megapixel front selfie camera. Huawei is also launching an upgraded version of the P20 Pro called the (deep breath) "Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS (Race Sport)".

As for the general specifications for the latest Huawei devices, Mr Yu said the P20 has a 5.8-inch LCD screen and battery capacity of 3,400 mAh.

While the quality of the zoom seems to be represented better in the P20 Pro, the iPhone X definitely handles a tricky lighting situation better.

Time to get our heads out of the clouds - the base 256GB model will cost €1,695, nearly double the P20 Pro price. It's powered by a 3000mAh battery, and it runs EMUI 8.0 on top of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Grab confirms acquisition of Uber's Southeast Asia operations
The sale of Uber's regional business marks the first major consolidation efforts among ride-hailing companies in Southeast Asia. As Uber prepares for its Initial Public Offering (IPO), CEO Khosrowshahi has been trying to clean up the company's financials.

This battery can also be refilled to over 50 per cent in 30 minute via quick charge technology although it's worth noting that the P20 Pro can't be charged wirelessly. The camera optics on the phone has also been made by Leica.

Huawei has launched its P20 smartphone series in an event at Paris, France.

On the front of the Mate RS is a 6-inch OLED 2K curved screen which ups the resolution from FHD+ found on the P20. Yes, so you can choose between using the front fingerprint sensor, face unlock, or the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The Huawei P20 Series' Kirin 970 processor and dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit (NPU) enable truly effortless photography. But as with previous Huawei flagship phones, the phone uses both in combination to produce low-noise images that are higher in dynamic range than would otherwise be possible with a single camera. It comes in some handsome colours, including the eye-catching, two-tone blue-green gradient version, pink gold, midnight blue, champagne gold and black - all edged with a coloured chrome metal frame.

The Huawei P20 launched on Mar 27, 2018. The megapixel count on the P10 is the same, but you're only getting f/2.2 with the 12MP lens, meaning less light can get in. Notably, one of the walls at the event shows the name "Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS". Huawei is one of the rare smartphone manufacturers with its own SoC manufacturing business, so instead of the usual Snapdragon SoC, the heart of the P20 Pro is a HiSilicon Kirin 970.
