The Huawei P20 smartphones are now official, including the much talked about P20 Pro. The new devices all have solid additions and improvements but the P20 Pro easily stands out for having a few things we haven’t seen before.
First is the triple camera system, which had been rumored for months. The camera system looks exactly like we’ve seen in recent leaks. The third camera is not part of the vertical camera, it instead sits outside right under the other two. The P20 Pro is the only one in the lineup to have the triple cameras. The Huawei P20 has a dual camera system, which isn’t bad considering that most smartphones still use it.
The other unique thing that Huawei has brought with the phones is the color options. Each phone comes with the common color options we’ve seen in the past but the company will also offer a gradient effect option for those who want something a little different. The gradient effect is only available for the P20 and P20 Pro. The common color options include black and midnight blue. The new and interesting color options had been rumored earlier this month and Huawei has now confirmed them.
The designs look exactly like the we had seen from the many leaks. There isn’t much on the back, with only the dual or triple camera systems. The Huawei and Leica branding are vertical, just like we had seen in pictures.
On the front, there is a notch, something that had also been rumored for weeks. The notch, which houses the front camera, is much smaller than the one on the iPhone X. On the bottom, there is a home button, which works as a fingerprint sensor.
Here are the specs of the Huawei P20 Pro:
- 6.1-inch display.
- Kirin 970 processor.
- 6GB of RAM.
- 128GB of storage.
- 4,000mAh battery.
The company also announced the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS, which is pretty much a P20 Pro with better specs. The major differences are the 256GB and 512GB storage options and higher resolution display. This one will cost a lot more than the other Huawei devices. Price: $2,000.
The Huawei P20 Pro will go on sale on April 6 at a price of 899 euros ($1,115). The P20 is now on sale at a price of 649 euros ($805).
