Huawei P20 Launch Stream & Live Blog

Huawei P20, P20 Pro launch LIVE UPDATES: Expected price, specs, and features Huawei says three cameras are better than one with P20 Pro smartphone
| 28 March, 2018, 01:46

Chinese electronics giant Huawei on Tuesday announced the debut of the "HUAWEI P20 Series" with the launch of two new smartphones - HUAWEI P20 and HUAWEI P20 Pro - that will be available in India from the next week. This Android smartphone is a pretty standard upgrade from the P10 we saw before, with a lot of notable changes and improvements. Both phones have notches at the top that houses the front-facing camera.

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. While it might be part of the Mate series by name, the similarities between the new Android phone and the P20 Pro are significant: indeed, the flagship feature of the P20 Pro has been borrowed wholesale.

Huawei, like every other smartphone manufacturer, has moved to a double-pronged flagship smartphone launch cycle this year, and 2018's offering is the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro. We've rounded up all of the best UK Huawei P20 and P20 Pro pre-order deals for you right here.

This is searingly bright, thanks to the fact that every red, green and blue subpixel is also supplemented with a white subpixel, but my first impressions of it are that it doesn't look quite as rich in colour as the screen on the P20 Pro.

Elsewhere, you'll find a 6.1-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,240 x 1,080 pixels that's powered by Huawei's own Kirin 970 octa-core processor (four Cortex-A73 cores at 2.36GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz). It gets the Pro's triple-camera system along with a super-advanced under-display fingerprint sensor. You can check out our first look video above.


It was the camera features and functions that took centre stage, in particular, the P20 Pro with its three-camera setup - which was teased in the company's invite to media attending the event. The camera configuration is comprised of a 40-megapixel RGB sensor, a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor with telephoto lens. The Pro also gets Huawei's Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset along with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. While the Huawei P20 is said to come with a price tag of Euro 649 (roughly Rs. 52,200) for the 4GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant, and the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model of the Huawei P20 Pro is said to be available at Euro 899 (roughly Rs. 72,400). Unusually for a smartphone, the twilight and pink-gold colour options have a slight but striking colour gradient across its glass back.

The biggest highlight of the new P20 Pro is, of course, the endless stream of Leica-branded lenses on the rear. Around back you'll find not one, not two, but three cameras built in cooperation with Leica. This camera setup features AI Image Stabilization and can also record slow-motion videos at a whopping 960 frames/second.

We've spent some time shooting with the new Huawei P20 Pro smartphone at an exclusive pre-briefing in London and at the official Huawei Europe press event in Paris.

Lastly, the Huawei P20 packs in a 3400 mAh battery which draws power from a USB Type-C port. "It features a 12MP 1/2/3" RGB sensor coupled with a 20MP 1/2/78" Monochrome sensor.

The Huawei P20 is IP53 certified while the Huawei P20 Pro has a higher IP67 rating of water and dust resistance.
