The Huawei P20 smartphone was launched in March 2018. The handset comes with a 5.80-inch touch screen with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2244 pixels at a PPI of 428 pixels per inch. The Huawei P20 is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core processor and comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone includes 128 GB of internal storage. As for cameras, the Huawei P20 has a 20-megapixel main camera on the back and a 24-megapixel front shutter for selfies.
The Huawei P20 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and has a power of 3400 mAh. It measures 149.10 x 70.80 x 7.65 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 165.00 grams. The Huawei P20 is a SIMsmartphone double. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. The phone’s sensors include a proximity sensor, an accelerometer, and an ambient light sensor.
Huawei P20 – Design
The Huawei P20 has a design almost identical to that of the Huawei P20 Pro, but with a big difference: the first has a dual camera configuration, while the second is equipped with the new three-camera configuration of the company. However, both were designed together by Leica, the German optics.
The P20 is also smaller, in part because of its 5.8-inch FullView LCD. The P20 Pro, for comparison, has a 6.1-inch FullView OLED display. However, do not be too excited: it even has a cut, called “notch” at the top, which is used to store vital components like the 24-megapixel self-timer.
Like the standard P20, there is a capacitive start button placed on the small edge at the bottom of the screen, which can be duplicated as a fingerprint reader if you’re not a fan of facial recognition, but keep in mind that both methods be used in unison.
However, putting the Start button under the screen, where a set of customizable navigation keys resides on the screen, is a bad decision. That’s because, as I noticed in the P20 Pro review, I often saw myself pressing the Capacitive and Start buttons at the same time and thus opened the Google Assistant.
There is one speaker at the bottom, located to the left of the USB-C slot. It looks fantastic, provides a clear and rich sound, even when the volume is amplified to the maximum. However, I found myself covering the speaker when I held the camera with one hand, making the audio otherwise impossible to hear.
Specs and battery
With the Mate series of phones, the Huawei P series represents the main devices of the company and is therefore equipped with advanced technology. All three models include the company’s Kirin 970 processor. RAM varies by exact model, with the P20 Pro and Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS with 6GB of memory each, while the P20 has 4GB. The Kirin processor features Huawei’s Neural Processing Unit (NPU), who does most of the heavy work in terms of AI. tasks
Both P20 models come with 128GB of storage, while the Huawei Mate RS Design Porsche comes with a storage option of 256GB and 512GB.

Regarding the battery capacity, the P20 and Porsche Edition Mate RS have a 4000 mAh battery, while the P20 has a power of 3400 mAh.
There is also a big difference in durability between the Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro IP ratings are quite different: the P20 has a poor IP52 rating, which means that it will not support much more than dust and droplets. ‘water. The Huawei P20 Pro has the most typical IP67 rating we expect in phones. The IP rating was not disclosed to Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS.
Software and special features
The Huawei P20, P20 Pro, and Porsche Edition Huawei Mate RS ship with Android 8.1 Oreo. You’ll find the latest version of EMUI, Huawei’s customer interface, on the phone as well. The EMUI update offers some minor improvements over its predecessor.
Huawei’s mobile cameras have had excellent results since the beginning of its partnership with Leica. How will this improve on P20? Well, it seems that Huawei has added some awesome new hardware and software features to make the P20 camera even better, and the camera testing company DxO Mark confirms that the goal has been achieved.
The first things: The Huawei P20 Pro and the Porsche Design Mate RS are the first phones we saw with a set of triple cameras. They are equipped with a 40 megapixel main lens with A.I. (AIS) image stabilization. The secondary camera comes with 8 megapixels with optical image stabilization, while the tertiary lens is a 20 megapixel mono lens. Each lens has a different aperture from f / 1.6 to f / 2.0, which means you should be able to get good shots in almost any lighting condition.
The front camera of the Huawei P20 Pro and the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS has 24 megapixels and, like the other lenses, the Leica brand, which bodes well for the overall quality. It has a f / 2.0 aperture, which is great for a selfie camera, but do not expect awesome low light pictures.
As for the Huawei P20, you’ll find a dual rear camera system with a 12-megapixel master lens along with a 20-megapixel monochrome secondary lens. The main lens has an aperture of f / 1.8 while the mono lens between f / 1.6. Like other Huawei phones, the monochrome lens should help users take better pictures in low light. You’ll also find the same 24-megapixel Leica camera on the P20 that appears on the P20 Pro.
In addition to hardware, Huawei has added exciting software features to the new flagship. The camera is based on A.I. make image adjustments based on object recognition; While the P10 was able to discern 13 different scene recognition modes, Porsche Design’s P20, P20 Pro and Huawei Mate RS increased the ante by identifying 19 different common scenes. Ouch. It also helps in the composition by adding a horizontal line to the viewfinder to make sure the photo is level.
You will also find a super slow camera feature on these phones that is similar to what you will find in the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. With a super slow camera, you can increase the frame rate of your camera to 960 frames per second for 0.2 seconds to achieve a matrix effect.
