The lat­est prod­uct an­nounce­ments and in­dus­try de­vel­op­ments

Chi­nese smart­phone man­u­fac­turer Huawei has ended months of ru­mours by con­firm­ing its new P20, P20 Pro and P20 Lite smart­phones.

The P20 Pro is the most sig­nif­i­cant op­tion for the pho­tog­ra­pher, largely thanks to its rear three-cam­era setup. This com­bines a 40MP RGB sen­sor with an f1.8-aper­ture lens and 20MP mono­chrome sen­sor with an f1.6-aper­ture lens, to­gether with a fur­ther 8MP sen­sor that’s fronted by an f2.4 80mm-equiv­a­lent lens.

The front cam­era is also re­spectable in its specs, with a 24.8MP sen­sor and an f2 lens. Huawei has com­ple­mented this with what it de­scribes as AI-driven 3D fa­cial mod­el­ling tech­nol­ogy, which in turn al­lows for a sim­i­lar col­lec­tion of por­trait light­ing op­tions seen in other re­cent re­leases.

Per­haps the most am­bi­tious claim for the new model is that its new AI sta­bil­i­sa­tion (AIS) op­tion is ef­fec­tive enough to sta­bilise hand­held ex­po­sures up to six sec­onds long. Other pho­to­graphic fea­tures in­clude a 5x hy­brid zoom, pre­dic­tive fo­cus, au­to­matic scene recog­ni­tion and a new white bal­ance sen­sor in­cor­po­rated just be­neath the flash on the rear. The model, which has been fin­ished with a 6.1in OLED dis­play, is also ca­pa­ble of both 4K UHD and

Full HD video record­ing, with an ad­di­tional 960fps Su­per Slow Mo­tion cap­ture op­tion that can out­put slow-mo­tion footage up to 32x slower than it’s cap­tured. Other fea­tures in­clude IP67 dust pro­tec­tion and wa­ter­proof­ing, a 4,000mAh bat­tery and 128GB of stor­age space. Huawei also took the launch as an op­por­tu­nity to re­veal that the P20 Pro boasts the high­est over­all DxOMark Mo­bile scores of any cur­rent smart­phone, with an over­all score of 109 plac­ing it ahead of the likes of the Google Pixel 2 and Sam­sung S9+.
