Huawei’s love for dual rear camera setups has brought them to plan something gigantic and possibly ground-breaking in the recent history of smartphones.
Rumors we’ve heard
Rumor is that Huawei is planning to mount triple rear cameras on its flagship model P20 Pro, contrary to the norm. It is said to be 40 Mega Pixels with an 8MP telephoto lens and a 20MP monochrome sensor. That’s a triple threat that you need to watch out for! Furthermore, the selfie snapper will be 24MP, which is very intriguing.
Another report also claims that the P20 Pro will offer a 5x “hybrid zoom” functionality that will bond with optical zoom and digital zoom that people have come to like in most of the smartphones sold today by various OEMs.
Design, build and specs
The Huawei P20 Pro will have the ‘notch’ like an iPhone X which every major player is catching on to. Besides, a fingerprint scanner will be placed under the dedicated home button which eats some of that precious screen size and might not please the crowd a whole lot, but okay!
The screen will have a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a 1080 x 2240 screen resolution which gives it a 19:9 aspect ratio.
On the hardware front, the P20 will be run on a home-grown Kirin 970 chipset which comes with amazing Neural Processing Units for smart AI capabilities. Memory and storage is rumored to be 6GB of RAM size and 128GB, respectively. Although in some markets another variant with 256GB might also be available.
The battery is always a major concern for smartphone users and Huawei is aware of this fact. The P20 and its variants might roll out with a 4,000 mAh battery with Huawei’s SuperCharge. Additionally, the handset might also come with IP67 certification rating.
Huawei’s commitment to keeping all smartphones bezel-less is truly praiseworthy. Although we don’t yet know the screen to body ratio, we suspect it’s somewhere around 90 percent, like most competitors.
Apparently, the P20 will have two variants – P20 Lite and P20 Pro, the specs of which will be discussed in the Huawei event scheduled for March 23. Interestingly enough, the tagline for this event, as printed on the invitations, reads “See Mooore with AI.” If that isn’t a clear indication that Huawei is going to surprise us with a lot of AI improvements and a supreme camera, then I don’t know what is!
Stay tuned for more updates.
