Huawei Unveil The P20 Range
The company is developing P20 Pro, P20, and P20 Lite smartphones, which it will unveil this month at an event in Paris. However, we've already seen these phones pop up in many leaked images and reports, and the latest look comes from Evan Blass (@evleaks). He has shared leaked renders of the entire P20 lineup, and yes, they all have notches, but only one has a triple-lens camera.

2013 - 2018: Elyse began her career in journalism in 2006 as a reporter at several regional New York State newspapers and magazines, including the Press-Republican, North Country Scene, and Malone Telegram, where she covered a range of beats, from local politics to business. She graduated from The University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in multimedia journalism, and shortly after that, she moved to New York City and stumbled into tech journalism. She worked at both 9to5Mac and 9to5Google as a copy editor at first and then as a reporter. During this time, she also contributed to other news websites, such as the BBC, and she graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degree in writing from The New School in Manhattan. She joined Pocket-lint in 2013 and currently serves as a US-based contributing writer, focusing on tech news and features. She also works as an editor at CBS Interactive. When she isn't working, she can be found renovating her 100-year-old country house in upstate New York with her husband, two Russian Blue cats, and a Husky.
CNET praised the design of the P20 Pro, noting that its "Twilight" color finish was reminiscent of when phones "dared to look different" in the early 2000s, but that its glass backing was likely to attract fingerprints. The P20 Pro's cameras were deemed to be competitive with other high-end devices, with low-light images being "consistently detailed", and having quality that exceeded those of the Samsung Galaxy S9+. However, it was argued that the automatic enhancement mode often resulted in oversaturated and unnatural-looking photos. NDTV noted that the P20 range lacked wireless charging or a 1440p display like its competition, and that the P20 Pro's Kirin 970 system-on-chip was comparable to the Snapdragon 835, but slightly behind the Exynos 9810 of the Samsung Galaxy S9 on CPU benchmarks. On graphics benchmarks, the P20 Pro was shown to have a frame rate advantage over its competitors due to its lower resolution. In conclusion, the S9 was deemed to be a better "all-round" phone, but the P20 Pro was best for users who wanted the "most versatile" cameras of a current smartphone.
The P20 Pro delivers remarkable performance in low-light situations. The images are enormously rich in detail, and with the HDR mode, they have a dynamic range that sometimes makes them appear almost unnatural. By combining the data from the three different sensors, Huawei manages to keep image noise very low.
The company used Europe's largest trade show as an opportunity to unveil its latest chipset, the Kirin 980, which will be in the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The chip has eight cores: four small ones to handle power management, two medium cores to provide long-lasting performance and two large cores to turbo-boost a phone, kicking in when the most demanding gaming applications are in use.
And curiously, given that we have to wait nearly two months for the official unveiling of the Mate 20 proper, Huawei on Friday did use IFA to unveil the Mate 20 Lite. The midrange Lite phone features a 6.3-inch display, a 20-megapixel rear camera and a 24-megapixel front camera. Both of those cameras are paired with a secondary, 2-megapixel camera to capture depth information for portrait shots.
Last month we learned that Huawei will not unveil its P11 flagship (or P20, the name is not yet confirmed) at MWC 2018. Today the company announced on its Weibo page that it will still hold an event in Barcelona and announce new products.
The company has already confirmed that it will use an event in Paris to announce its new P20 handset, and teasers for the unveiling heavily hint at artificial intelligence (AI) and better cameras being key features of the new device.
Last month, the company chose not to unveil the P20 at the Mobile World Congress technology show in Barcelona, as it has done with previous new handsets, in order to host its own standalone launch to rival those traditionally associated with its competitors.
Huawei notes that while the P20 Pro unveiled in 2018 has a max ISO of 102400 that matches the Canon 5D Mark IV in sensitivity, the P30 Pro blows both of those devices out of the water with ISO 409600.
Huawei has announced plans to unveil its latest round of smartphones during an event on March 27th in Paris, France. This will likely include what Huawei is rumoured to call its P20 family of devices.
When Huawei launched the P20 Series the focus was on the flagships, the P20, and the P20 Pro. But a couple of weeks later, they unveiled the mid-range P20 Lite. Considering the other mid-range Androids in the market, can the Huawei P20 Lite gain solid footing? Find out in our review.Table of Contents
Huawei has just unveiled its latest flagship smartphone: the P20 Pro. And just as the rumors and leaks that have been floating around the Web for weeks predicted, the new model is the first smartphone to feature a triple camera setup.
BUT it doesn't break any new ground against the usual phone-camera limitations. Among them: there's no fine detail; there's no tonal complexity; the sharpening / NR is blocky-choppy; dynamic range is still highly limited. To my eye, fundamental IQ still isn't quite as good as a Canon G9-G10 or any other decent p-s digicam from 8 - 12 years ago.
Disgusting fake FLs as typical Huawei. They still take looking cool over treating customers seriously.--------------...holy s*** they actually wrote the digital zoom range into what's supposed to be lens specs...that takes disgustingness to a whole new level.Leica has actual tri elmars and if anything this is a tri summilux at best.
The a7R V is the fifth iteration of Sony's high-end, high-res full-frame mirrorless camera. The new 60MP Mark IV, gains advanced AF, focus stacking and a new rear screen arrangement. We think it excels at stills.
By Sanket Vijayasarathy: There have been plenty of leaks and rumours over the past few weeks regarding the upcoming Huawei P20 series that include the P20, P20 Lite and P20 Pro. The company is expected to unveil the phones at an event in Paris on March 27. Now there are fresh leaks and they contain the full and final renders, in other words the images, of the upcoming three Huawei phones.
WinFutures Roland Quandt has posted a series of renders of all three P20 smartphones that reveal them from each and every angle. The renders confirm the iPhone X-like notch atop the display on each of the phones, which will house the front camera of either 16-megapixel or 24-megapixel depending on the model. Additionally, the renders also tell us the range of colours that the phones will be available in. The P20, for example, will be available in black, pink and pink-gold while the P20 Lite will be offered in black, blue and pink options. The P20 Pro has an interesting Twilight colour option that is sure to attract a lot of people apart from black and blue.
Quandt provides some more details as well such as a 3,400mAh battery inside the P20 and a larger 4,000mAh battery for the P20 Pro. The report also notes that both the P20 and the P20 Pro will not support a microSD card slot, but they will support two nano SIM cards. The P20 Lite, on the other hand, will support storage expandability. Lastly, the report also notes that the P20 Lite, P20 and P20 Pro will be priced starting at EUR 369, EUR 679 and EUR 899, respectively. We will know everything else when Huawei unveils the trio on March 27.
The case of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro comes in several colors and they range from the safe (black) to the exciting, such as midnight blue. This latter color shimmers and changes as you move it. It looks great.

In a London briefing last Thursday, Newsweek was given a preview of the devices before the official launch, which took place in the bustling city of Paris. The news comes roughly a month after the company unveiled a headline-grabbing foldable smartphone.
But it is mobile photography where the P-range shines. The Pro has a quad-camera setup: a 40 megapixel "superspectrum" lens (f/1.6 with optical image stabilization), a 20 megapixel ultra wide lens (f/2.2), an 8 megapixel 10X hybrid zoom lens and a time-of-flight (TOI) lens for depth.
Finally after a long wait the Chinese giant and world number three manufacturer Huawei announced their latest flagships P20 and P20 Pro. Both the devices were unveiled in a dedicated even held in Paris on March 27. The new P20 series is the Huawei's reply to Samsung's latest Galaxy S9 and S9+. Both the P20 and P20 Pro are bringing a striking design all glories to be the best flagship smartphones of the year.
The P50 proves equipped to handle all of these hurdles, demonstrating realistic colours and contrast and a promisingly broad dynamic range, not to mention crisp details, despite the fast-paced action of the lunge in the scene.
Following on from the above tweet, come April 2021 additional details were shared concerning the rumoured camera hardware across the range; with continued usage of an RYYB sensor in numerous cases, as well as a snapshot of the potential layout of the camera setup on one member of the P50 series.
