Red menace P20 Pro won't be released in the US, 40MP camera or not
by Daniel Petrov / Mar 28, 2018, 5:14 AM
A huge 1/1.7" sensor with 40MP resolution? Check. Sidekicks with 20 MP monochrome and 8 MP telephoto lens? Check. A 4-in-1 hybrid focusing system with color temp sensor, laser and phase-detection autofocus? Check. The highest light sensitivity levels on a smartphone camera of up to 102,400 ISO? The first phone with 3x optical zoom thanks to the telephoto lens? Super Slow Motion with with 960 FPS super slow-motion at 720p like on the S9? Check, check and check! On first blush, the P20 Pro takes much better exposed pictures at night than both the S9 and iPhone X, but in daylight the results are a bit of a mixed bags, based on the limited amount of samples that has emerged from Huawei's event yesterday.
suffered with the Mate 10 series because of geopolitical considerations, so your best bet to get a hand on a P20 Pro or Porsche Design Mate RS with 512 GB storage and dual finger scanner, would be to import them.The thing is, however, that all this camera jazz will never see the light of the day on this side of the pond, at least not in any official capacity. Huawei has apparently made it clear that it doesn't intend to go through all the carrier and Best Buy humiliation it

I am sure that initially, Huawei would not be so foolish as to introduce spyware/malware deliberately into its US handsets, as they realise those handsets would be taken apart by US authorities and studied: one tiny hint of a deliberate flaw and it would be blood. But what the real risk is that if they introduced handsets that did well in the market in the US, in a few years, when department heads of defense contractors, Professors at MIT Nuclear Engineering and commodity traders of oil all saw their Huawei phones as comparatively low cost but feature rich and were loyal customers...that's when Huawei would hit, after spending those years researching various new 0 day vulnerabilities that would even be quite stealthy. Not worth the risk for the US.

You just expressed the the notorious plans of USA . First they created companies like Facebook , Google,Apple . When the companies become vastly popular globally, they started to steal personal data from the users . As we have seen USA invading countries killing millions of people in last few decades . I have totally changed my mind from using USA based products and services . China is a billion times better than USA and its dirty plans

I read an article the other day entitled “When the FBI, CIA, and NSA agree on something you should listen”. I think differently. To me, that suggests that Huawei phones don’t have backdoors that are used by those agencies to gather data. Huawei servers are out of reach for those agencies to be able to touch with or without a court warrant.

Pretty sure the internet was created for the intent of spying on the world and making money off of it. Anyway, stop fighting folks. People denying there's any spying on any smart gadget is either delusional or stand to profit from it.

This is the closest and most modern thing to the Lumia 1020. I need to find a way to get this phone in my hands. Much more exciting than the Galaxy SO and they are very nice phones to me. The P20 is just something different and they're not afraid to put huge batteries in their flagships. Samsung has no more excuses not too at this point.

Good riddance. We don't need any data thieving chinese company in this country. If you want the best smarthphone performance for bargain price, just buy Samsung. It's far more reliable than the chink brands and at least a year ahead of any other smartphone brands in terms of tech.

But they don't have a problem with Huawei laptops and OnePlus who was actually caught stealing people's information but no outrage over them. Makes you wonder what's really going on. Their laptops are acceptable but not their phones...

The best way for Huawei to make inroads in the US is to keep offering all your devices unlocked, make sure they work on all carriers and offer financing so customers will be more likely to take the plunge and buy your products. I hope they will at least offer the p20 pro and mate RS Porsche design in the US.
