CAIRO - 23 May 2018: Let’s rewind a few months back and look at the evolution of smartphone in terms of buying behavior. When the first set of smartphones were launched, design used to be the driving factor, but soon people started looking at what’s inside the smartphone – features. While certain factors might have been fluctuating, there has been a constant: camera.

While everybody laughed when smartphone manufacturers started putting two camera sensors at the back of their devices. And yet, many people upgrade their phone to get a better camera. That what made Huawei put a huge focus on while designing its latest flagship device; Huawei P20 Pro, the first smartphone to sport is the first smartphone market to feature not two but three Leica-branded cameras on the back, making it as one of the most interesting Android phones currently available.


The new Huawei P20 Pro smartphone is an upgrade to the higher end of Huawei's flagship smartphones, which is catered to photography enthusiasts with other features that many can appreciate. The P20 Pro’s camera placement, raised camera modules, coupled with Leica and Huawei’s branding, that makes the P20 Pro resemble a high-end point and shoot when looking at it from the rear.

Huawei P20 Pro aims to deliver an advanced camera experience, something the users have never experienced before on a smartphone. Instead of two cameras, Huawei uses three cameras on the back — a 40MP RGB camera with a f/1.8 aperture, a 20MP monochrome camera with a f/1.6 aperture, and an 8MP telephoto camera with a f/2.4 aperture, allowing the phone to use a 3x optical zoom (or 5x hybrid zoom). The P20 Pro uses a 1/1.7-inch sensor, which is significantly larger than the sensor in any smartphone right now.

The three cameras also come with laser autofocusing and a color temperature sensor, which makes sure white balance is accurate. You can choose between 40MP and 10MP camera resolutions on the device.

The default camera mode is 10MP – it essentially combines the information from four adjacent pixels into one, which translates to better photographs in low light conditions. And the phone supports super slow-motion videos at 960 frames per second.

And of course, selfie fans will love the 24-megapixel front-facing camera that takes impressive portrait shots and even throws in dramatic blurred backgrounds.

Huawei’s improved on the AI component of their camera, and the P20 Pro has an expanded selection of things and scenes it can recognize and adjust the camera settings for. Though, shooting with the P20 Pro is effortless with AI, that does a decent job of picking out the right mode for the scene. The upside is that you get much better images — particularly in low-light conditions with night mode.

It’s worth mentioning that the Huawei P20 Pro is absolutely worth the hype. This device gives everything the user possibly want from a smartphone – amazing photos, fast performance and a long-lasting battery.
