Alleged Huawei P20, P20 Plus, and P20 Pro designs leak out, triple cameras everywhere

Alleged Huawei P20, P20 Plus, and P20 Pro designs leak out, triple cameras everywhere

In the last three years, Huawei released P8, P9, and P10series of smartphones, so we're now expecting the company to introduce a P11family. However, this might not happen. According to a few leaked imagesoriginating from China,Huawei's next generation P-series handsets should be called P20.



 



Said images show schematics that allegedly reveal theoverall design of three new Huawei P20 smartphones - a regular P20, a P20 Plus,and a P20 Pro. Apparently, all three handsets will offer triple rear cameras(though positioned differently). According to a previous report, Huawei'supcoming triple rear camera will have a resolution of 40 Megapixels, and "5xhybrid zoom" - in theory, this should be a great camera, but it remains tobe seen if it can outclass other high-end smartphone cameras.  



 



It looks like the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus will have prettysimilar designs, with fingerprint scanners on the front, and triple cameraspositioned asymmetrically on the back (horizontally on the P20, and verticallyon the P20 Plus). Most probably, the two handsets will differ in size.



 



As for the Huawei P20 Pro, this has a higher screen-to-bodyratio, a notch à la iPhone X, and a fingerprint scanner on the back, belowits centered triple camera.



 



It's said that the P20 and P20 Plus will be powered by Kirin970 processors (just like the already announced Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro), while the P20Pro should feature a new and slightly more powerful Kirin975 processor. All three new handsets should offer 6 GB of RAM, and at least 64GB of storage space.



 



Huawei could announce the P20 series at MWC 2018 (February 26- March 1). We're looking forward to seeing exactly what the company has instore for us. Until then, we have to keep in mind that the info and the images inthis article should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt, as there's noway to verify their authenticity.

I doubt there's a dedicated camera for putting your initials on the pictures. ;)

Well...it could't get more stupid than shoving 3 sensors on the back of a smartphone. An old, single-sensor Galaxy S7 wipes the floor with any of these multiple-sensor cameras in any light conditions. Just don't waste the space and just use it to fit a larger battery...

Um, the Huawei Mate 10 camera ranks better than the Samsung Note 8, so I'm not sure why you would think that this wouldn't improve on an already great camera system.

Tested huawei mate 10 camera auto mode for a week and I never liked the quality. Color is bland and a little on green hue and not even close to real life. White balance and exposure are more weird than lg g6 and too much noise even at daylight. Sharpness is only good in monochrome. You can also see high tech traveler's video comparison, htc u11+ owned it many times. Huawei's price is increasing so they have to justify them with better hardware since htc and pixel already proved that single cameras are still awesome.

Funny when it comes to Huawei you talk about real colors but when its Samsung the boosted colors which are no where real colors are somehow extraordinary and makes it great.

And there are three different Leica branded color modes on the Huawei phones: Standard, vivid and smooth.

Standard have bland colors. That's where the little green hues show. Vivid ruins detail 3 out of 5 times. Smooth make subjects look like they came from a marshmallow factory. For an expensive phone, I expect them to release some camera updates in a few months or I will just return my purchase.

Can you give me a link where I say that samsung's saturated colors are extraordinary and great? By the way, I own s8 and I don't use the stock camera app. I only use open camera app and it sure makes great use of the samsung sensor properly.

lol Havent you read the results of blind camera comparison?

Why should I believe everything the media say when I can test the device and see the results by myself? Sorry to burst your bubble but in auto mode, mate 10 have the same camera results as nokia 8.

Have you ever tried adjusting all the settongs in the camera app. I can say there are plenty of things the camera on the mate 10 can do. Just aujto photo taking may not be the best but if you take time with the app you can take really good pictures.

Wrong Samsung is now being left behind the S9 will still have only 1 Camera only the plus will have S9+ will have 2 cameras. 3 camera will give us wide angle & optical zoom.

Um...no. Pixel 2 only has one camera and manages to wipe the floor with the rest. So just stop

Not really down to the lens and sensor though, they are pretty bog standard. What Google excels in is computational photography, their processing is fantastic. Also most of the people in here knocking Huawei have no intention of buying the phones anyway they just need something to bitch about.

Why would they still put that hideous fingerprint scanner in front? Completely ruins the aesthetic of the phone

Front finger sensor is way more useful on the front.

Because that fps can be customize as the navigation keys. I've tried the regular mate 10 at the store today and it was awesome except for the iOS like icons which you can't change even if you're using Nova Launcher pro. If they will change the way they support their flagship phones with updates, I will consider buying another Huawei device in the future.

all we need is a bigger sensor size. for even better detail and quality..... why they wouldn't learn

it's strange that years ago (albeit in thicker phones) we had 1/1.83 sensors (Nokia N8) and the Pixon12 had a 1/2.5 sensor back in 2009 (this list obviously ignores Nokia's titans 808/1020).

As you already said, those phones are thick.. around 1.5cm thick, and only has like 1000mAh battery.. (not exact number, to lazy too google)
