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.

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.”
