The P20 Pro, featuring a notch on the top and a chin bezel on the bottom, comes with a 6.1-inch OLED display, which can be made use to turn off the display along the sides of the notch.
Like nearly every other Huawei product unveiled over the past six months or so, this 6-inch mid-ranger comes with a "FullView" display and dual rear-facing cameras. The Enjoy 8 has a fingerprint scanner on its back.
Away from the headline-making camera systems, the form of the P20 Pro is also worthy of the flagship handle.
After South Africa's collective tech ears pricked yesterday at the news of the Huawei P20 Pro's fairly modest prepaid pricing, retailer Cellucity is at it again this time divulging the phone's contract pricing. The NPU is designed for AI-based functions of the camera.
The 40-megapixel sensor also enables ISO levels of 102,400, which is something that you can only find on professional cameras such as Canon 5D mark, among others. What really has upped the game is the Artificial intelligence used by the device to improve the image. Additionally the P20 and P20 Pro include support for six-axis stabilization and 960fps super-slow-motion video capability. The P20 Pro is an impressive device but the company has taken things to another level by also bringing a device with even better specs. Both the phones are powered by an octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset coupled with a dedicated NPU.
As far as hardware goes, it's what you'd expect from a budget device - Snapdragon 430 backed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The Pro model is offered with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage while the regular P20 comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The smartphone also gets IP67 certification for water and dust resistance.
A few years ago, when we talked about luxury smartphones, they often came with a few compromises here and there.
Though it should be noted that those rivals are the S9 and the iPhone X - the two phones at the top of the pile, so the P20 is doing something right. The phone has a starting price of 1,695 euros ($2,089). The Porsche Design Mate RS is way more expensive than the three other phones announced by the company. Huawei took care of his travel and accommodation in Paris.
