Huawei just made dual cameras a thing of the past

The P20 Pro has all the features of a great smartphone, but Huawei has managed to go even further with its triple rear camera system with a 109 score on the DxOMark. The main camera is of 40 megapixels with optical image stabilization and F 1.8 aperture. The second camera is a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor also with optical image stabilization and F 1.6 aperture. The third one is an 8 megapixel 3x telephoto lens with F 2.4 aperture. All these sound great on paper and could make the Huawei P20 Pro the smartphone with the best camera of the year.

Simply stunning

The phone has a great build and comes in four colors; black, blue, pink gold and, the most popular option, twilight. Coming in a glass shell, the phone is a fingerprint magnet and is prone to accumulate scratches if not handled with proper care. On the front, it has a 6.1 inch OLED display with an aspect ratio of 18.7:9. The screen also has a notch on top which seemed rather odd since the rather sizable bottom bezel, which holds the fingerprint scanner, denotes that Huawei was not going for a greater screen-to-body ratio. This rather feels like Huawei was following trend instead of reason. The notch houses a front camera of a whopping 24 megapixels and an earpiece.

The P20 Pro packs a pretty powerful 4000 mAh battery. It also comes with a Kirin 970 chipset, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of on-board storage. It comes with Android 8.1 Oreo and Huawei’s own skin, the EMUI interface. Furthermore, the P20 Pro is rated IP67 for water- and dust-resistance. And no, there is no headphone jack.
