We have seen a trickle of leaks about Huawei’s new phone over the past few weeks. It is likely we know pretty much everything about it now, including its notch display.
The latest leaks are on its camera, and they are amazing assuming they are correct. The P20 Pro will include an ultra-high resolution 40-megapixel rear camera in addition to an 8MP telephoto shooter and a 20MP black-and-white sensor.
This set-up could allow the Pro to offer the equivalent of 3X optical zoom through its telephoto lens and is expected to shoot 960 frames per second slow motion. Some reports state the zoom could be 5-times, but this is likely a combination of optical and digital zoom.
The sensors are said to have apertures ranging from f/1.6 to f/2.4. The lenses will also be Leica branded similar to the Mate 10 Pro. The front camera should be one 24MP lens.
Similar to Asus Zenfone 5, the P20 will come in 3 forms, a regular model, a lite model and the impressive Pro model.
Each model will use a likely different screen size, all with a notch at the top with the following specifications:
- P20 Lite: 5.6-inch, 2250 x 1080 pixels, LCD
- P20: 5.8-inch, LCD
- P20 Pro: 6.1-inch, OLED
It is believed the main internals will be:
- P20 Lite: Kirin 659, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage + microSD, 3520mAh battery
- P20: Kirin 970, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, 3320mAh battery
- P20 Pro: Kirin 970, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, 4000mAh battery
Pricing is reported to be
- P20 Lite: €350
- P20: €679
- P20 Pro: €899
It is also worth noting that the phones appear to have the fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone again, which is my preferred layout.
After reviewing the absolutely fantastic Huawei Mate 10 Pro, I am quite excited about the P20 Pro, though that price tag is a bit steep.
Huawei is due to unveil the Pro on March 27th alongside the regular P20 and P20 Lite.
