Huawei P20 Launch Stream & Live Blog

Who's Listening To Your Smartphone Conversations? Some Fear It's China….

As mentioned above, the Huawei P20 Pro innovates in a number of ways - and another one of those innovations is with the camera.

Huawei at a launch event in Paris on Tuesday announced the P20 Pro, a stunning flagship featuring the "world's first" Leica triple camera system with the highest total pixel count available on a phone today.

The Kirin 970 features four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.36GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, paired with the Mali-G72MP12 GPU. This was all down to the neural processing unit (NPU) and the Kirin 970, which the new P20 and P20 Pro share.

Another bonus for Mate 10 owners is the ability in the P20 series to disable the AI-assisted scene recognition. Unlike the P20 lineup, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS does not feature a notch on the top.

With the standard P20 Pro, it has an iPhone X-style front camera notch and a thick bottom "chin" bezel. The front-facing camera remains the same at 24MP with a Face Unlock feature.

If you're after the Huawei P20 Pro, this starts at £79 upfront and £43 per month with 4GB data and AYCE minutes and texts.

And the Leica-branded cameras on the rear, although less flexible, still look impressive on paper.

Haddish told GQ when discussing Mo'Nique's boycott against Netflix and residuals, "My business run different than her business". Let's back up, because what Haddish has to tell GQ in the new interview adds more insane to an already insane story.

So the Huawei P20 Pro brings together a 8MP telephoto lens, a 20MP black-and-white lens, and a main RGB lens that clocks in at a ginormous 40 megapixels. Huawei has added features such as four-way autofocus with the help of PDAF, Laser, Contrast and Depth direction.

The 960fps slow motion video is recorded at 720p, but if that's not to your liking, you still have options. 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 is powered by a 3400mAh battery. This feature alone makes the P20 Pro much nicer than the P20. There's also the possibility of Lite and Pro models, too. As a phone that feels fresh and different on the smartphone market - a welcome change when compared to devices that are starting to feel the same year after year.

The Huawei P20 Pro is the most photo-centric smartphone that we've ever seen, offering a wealth of camera features that are created to help you "take ideal photos every time", at least according to Huawei. The camera also offers 5x magnification by combining digital zoom and optical zoom (from its telephoto lens).

It also has f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 wide aperture to capture clear detailed images. In addition to this, DxOMark ranked Huawei's P20 Pro zoom to be the best on any smartphone to date. However, there is no wireless charging support or the presence of 3.5mm audio jack.

The device comes with EMUI 8.1 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. It costs €899 in Europe, which means that it's €220 more expensive than the regular P20. The P20 also lacks the water and dust resistant present on the Pro.

Those looking to snap up one of the handsets from within the P20 range, SIM Free, can get the Huawei P20 Pro for £799 with the P20 available for £599.
