Huawei P20 Pro: A Phone With Massive Pixels
We know that software cannot run without hardware and vice-versa. There are two major mobile OSes in terms of market share: Android and iOS. But now, there is a clear winner with more features, higher customizability and bigger developer community: Android. Android has captured 70% of mobile phone users across the world. There are many hardware manufacturers to talk about: Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Huawei. However, today, I’ll talk about Huawei which already has broken records held by many phones, especially related to the camera.
Yes, I’m talking about Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. Like Samsung’s S9 and S9+, P20 Pro has improvements over the P20. So I will start with the P20 Pro.
Most highlighted point of this phone is the camera.
The P20 Pro has three rear cameras. You might think I am bluffing, but this is true.
The first camera is a 40 MP f/1.8 aperture RGB lens. The second camera is a 20 MP f/1.6 aperture monochrome lens (LEICA custom-designs lenses for this). The third camera is an 8 MP f/2.4 aperture telephoto lens with dual-tone LED flash. When you click a photo the three cameras flick their shutters at the same time to give you a superb crystal clear image. Huawei has also implemented OIS and EIS on all the cameras and markets it as All Image Stabilization (AIS). This camera setup also broke the DxOmark record by scoring 109, which is higher than any other phone. On the front, you will find a 24MP f/2.0 aperture camera (I see what you did there, VIVO!). The low light photography would be fantastic as Huawei claimed that this phone can also see in the dark. Huawei also claims that the P20 Pro has the best 5x zoom by the telephoto lens without loss of quality and a super slow motion video recording similar to the one in the Galaxy S9.
Moreover, the phone has a 6.1-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution with a notch. The notch can however be disabled, thanks to a software tweak. The phone is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 970 octa-core chipset. The first four cores are based on ARM-73 clocked at 2.3 GHz and the other four cores are based on ARM-53 architecture. The phone also comes with only one variant: 6GB RAM and 128GB storage which can be expanded with a hybrid micro-SD slot.
The battery has a massive 4000 mAh capacity. The phone supports Huawei’s super fast charge which comes second only to OnePlus Dash Charging in performance. All the major sensors are present. The notable changes in the interfaces are the inclusion of a USB Type-C port and the removal of the headphone jack.
So, if you want to replace your DSLR, you can get this phone.
