Chinese multinational giant Huawei is preparing to launch their P20 and P20 Pro smartphones in India. Roughly three weeks after their official launch globally, the Indian arm of the company has released teasers for the Indian launch. The pair of smartphones is acknowledged worldwide for its camera capabilities.
The company has sent out media invites for the launch event scheduled for 24 April. Rumored to be even better than the Samsung Galaxy S9+’s camera, the P20 Pro sets an even higher benchmark for other phones to aspire to.
At the lower end of the duo, the Huawei P20 features a dual-camera setup with large 1.55-micron pixels, featuring a 12-MP camera coupled with a 20 MP monochrome sensor. On the front, the phone sports a 24-MP camera for superior selfie quality. According to DxOMark scores, this camera is the best on a smartphone ever, beating the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Apple Iphone X with an overall score of 102. That is, by all measures, a commendable achievement. The camera also comes with a 3D portrait lighting effect.
The smartphones come with a 5.8-inch full HD+ Fullview display with a peak brightness that is 23% higher than the Iphone X. At the same size as the Apple IPhone X, the display will be significantly larger thanks to smaller bezels and a smaller notch design. The home button supports edgeless fingerprint. The phone has 4GB RAM.

Now let’s highlight the premium version of the duo with the much awaited triple cameras. The topmost lens comes with an 8-MP sensor with 3x optical zoom (a real rarity!), the second lens comes with a 40-MP sensor and finally the third uses a 20-MP monochrome sensor. The company is flaunting the optical zoom as the maximum zoom in any smartphone ever. The phone features zero shutter lag and claims to provide instant focus with motion prediction. An AI-assisted composition also helps with things like alignment and framing.
The Huawei P20 Pro sports a 6.1-inch Full HD+ OLED fullview display with 1:1,000,000 contrast ratio. It bears the same home button, bezel and notch design as the P20. Powered by a 4000mAh battery, the phone is set to provide uninterrupted performance. The phone also features 6GM RAM.
Both phones are powered by octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC complete with a dedicated NPU. Both phones feature 128 GB of inbuilt storage and 360 degree Face Unlock feature, said to unlock the duo in as little as 0.6 seconds. The duo is set to make their debut in the Indian market on 24 April 2018.
