Within the last 3-months, Huawei’s has been working really hard to break the record with its pro triple-lens Leica rear cameras. We’re looking at 40-megapixels! Now that’s going over the top I agree, but Huawei is aiming to be the best in that market area. There’s been tons of leak and we now have the specification of the devices coming out of the giant.
The 40MP is not a combined resolution of the three imaging sensors of the Huawei P20 Pro, it appears the primary lens is capable of spitting out 40MP images all by itself. The secondary telephoto shoots only 8 megapixels, and a monochrome 20MP sensor is also in tow to help with sharpness, contrast and various depth effects.
The first two rear-facing cams join forces for 5x “hybrid zoom” functionality, and the state-of-the-art Leica-co-developed photography system touts something called “Light Fusion” technology as well, although it’s unclear exactly what that does. Huawei P20 Pro offers great specs!
The rear cameras and by looking at the information indicates that the two main cameras will form what’s called a 5x “hybrid zoom”. Leica’s camera functionality also aims to feature the state of the art Leica-co-developed photography system which is referred to as “Light Fusion”. There’s no real explanation as to what this does at the moment.
I’d like to comment on the aperture but there’s no real information as to what they are. We could speculate that it’s between f/1.6 and f/2.4. It’s also good to note that “super-slow-motion” is a thing and that this device will be capable of doing just that, however, the resolution at which it will be done it still a bit uncertain.
The Huawei P20 Pro is also including other super-premium features like a Kirin 970 SoC with a built-in Neural Processing Unit for advanced AI capabilities, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage space, a hefty 4000mAh battery with “fast charge” functionality, IP67 water resistance, Android 8.1 Oreo software, and a 19:9 6.1-inch “notched” OLED screen with 2240 x 1080 resolution.
The current cost of the device is listed in euro and going for $899. Translate that into CAD and we get $1446 at current market value. OUCH! Huawei P20 Pro offers great specs!
