    Huawei Mate 20 Pro Announcement

      News

    Exactly a year after the premiere of Mate 10 Pro, Huawei presented its successor - Mate 20 Pro. According to the latest trends, at the back of the smartphone we will find 3 lenses with the combined optical range from 16 to 80mm and everything will be, of course, supported by “artificial intelligence”.

     

    Mate 20 Pro, is – as the producer assures – the strongest smartphone in the company’s history, but we are going to focus on its photography properties. As we’ve already mentioned, the smartphone is equipped with a triple Leica camera module which consists of:  

     

    • An ultra-wide 20MP lens with the equivalent of 16mm and the light of f/2.2, which gives a possibility of focusing from the distance of 2.5cm. PDAF/Laser AF.
    • A 8MP telelens with the equivalent of 80mm and the light of f/2.4. PDAF/Laser AF.
    • A 40MP wide-angle 1/1.7’’ lens with the equivalent of 27mm and the light of f/1.8. PDAF/Laser AF.

     

    The total range of lenses is 16 - 80mm – but thanks to the use of the latest digital zoom technology we can go a step further and increase this parameter to 270mm.

     

    The lens at the front panel of the smartphone has the resolution of 24 megapixels and, apart from detailed and expressive self-portraits, it is responsible for 3D Face Unlock functions. It can also be used in the process of authorization, for instance during mobile transactions.

    1). Huawei Mate 20 Pro

     

    The artificial intelligence of Huawei Mate 20 Pro "is learning the user’s way of work” and thanks to the knowledge obtained in this way it is to significantly increase the comfort of work with the smartphone and automatically adjust the photography parameters to the surroundings. The smartphone’s sensor works within an impressive ISO range reaching 51200. The photography modes which are worth mentioning include:  Super HDR, which "brings out the best" from 10 RAW photographs and creates one perfectly vivid shot out of them, and Portrait Color, which “separates the filmed color object from the converted monochromatic background.”

    2). Huawei Mate 20 Pro

     

    While writing about the latest flagship Huawei camera, we cannot forget about non-photography parameters of the device. Mate 20 Pro has the 9-core Kirin 980 processor created in the 7nm technology, 6 or 8GB of RAM and 128 or 256GB of in-built memory. The smartphone’s memory can be expanded with the use of NM cards (nanoSD). The OLED screen with the proportions of 19, 5:9 has the diagonal of 6.39" and the resolution of 3120 × 1440px. It is folded on the sides and covered with Gorilla Glass.  

     

    The body of Huawei Mate 20 Pro is made of glass and metal and its dimensions are 157,8 × 72,3 x 8,6mm. In the big body we will find a big battery with the capacity of 4200mAh. The whole construction is waterproof and it meets the IP68 norm. 

     

    The smartphone can be already bought on eBay for $1,150 and Huawei confirms the Mate 20 isn’t coming to the U.S. 😕

      Huawei is a company which presented the first smartphone with double camera 2 years ago. Now, it has again beaten the competitive companies by presenting a smartphone which is equipped with 3 cameras. 

      In comparison to other solutions on the market,  Huawei P20 Pro offers two cameras with the same focal length of 27mm, which differ when it comes to the sensor type and the lens brightness. The main module provides a colorful sensor with the resolution of 40Mp and the lens with the light f/1.8, whereas the second monochromatic sensor has the resolution of 20Mp and the lens brightness of f/1.6. Both sensors are supposed to cooperate, which enables us to obtain better image quality in the case of colorful photographs and work in low light - maximum ISO of 102400.
       

      1). Huawei P20 and P20 Pro
       
      Both cameras cooperate also in the portrait mode, in which, thanks to the stereoscopic view, they make it possible to simulate realistic image blurring.  

      The third camera, similarly to other top smartphones, is a telephoto lens. Its focal length is 80mm and it has the light of f/2.4. The sensor resolution is merely 8Mp.

      The most interesting thing about the 8Mp module is its  software which, by connecting information provided by this sensor with the 40Mp main module, is supposed to enable photographers to make lossless smooth zooms (maximally - 5x ones).  

      The smartphone is also equipped with the fourth, front face camera with the 24Mp sensor, so all selfie lovers should be satisfied. 
       

      2). Huawei P20 and P20 Pro
       
      When it comes to the technical side, we have at our disposal the following: 8-core Kirin 970 processor with the Mali-G72 MP12 graphic system, 6 GB of RAM, 6,1'' OLED screen with the FHD 1080x2240px resolution, 4000 mAh battery and 128GB of storage space.  Everything works under Android 8.1.


      What's more, Huawei P20 Pro automatically recognizes the scene type and adjusts proper photography parameters. It also offers the 3D Portrait Lighting mode, which simulates various lighting types, just like in the case of iPhone X, the movie mode (4K, 60 f/s) and the possibility of recording films in slow motion in HD, with the speed of 960 f/s.
       

      3). Huawei P20 and P20 Pro
       
      When it comes to the design, Huawei P20 Pro has been largely inspired by iPhone  X. The similarities are so big that if it wasn't for the "Home" button and the presence of three cameras,  the two phones could be easily mistaken. 

      Unfortunately, the smartphone, similarly to iPhone X,  does not offer the headphone connector and the microSD card slot. 
       
      Besides the P20 Pro model, its simpler and cheaper P20 version will also appear on the market. The P20 model will also offer 2 modules of cameras with the lenses equivalent to 27mm (15Mp with the light of f/1.8 and 20Mp with the light of f/1.6). This model will have  a little worse specification - the 4-core processor, 4GB of RAM and the 3400mAh battery.

      Both smartphones will appear on sale on 12 April. They will cost around $1110 for the Huawei P20 Pro version and around $800 for the standard version. 
       
      Here's the P20 Pro camera breakdown:
      40-megapixel main RGB (Aperture: F1.8) 8-megapixel telephoto (Aperture: F2.4; has OIS) 20-megapixel monochrome lens (Aperture: F1.6) 24-megapixel front-facing camera (Aperture: F2.0)  
      And here's the Huawei P20 camera sitch:
      12-megapixel main RGB (Aperture: F1.8) 20-megapixel monochrome lens (Aperture: F1.6) 24-megapixel front-facing camera (Aperture: F2.0)
