Design and Display
Looking at the physical appearance, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, comes with the same design although, there is a slight increase of display size but when at the back design, there is a sweet placement of the camera position, offering you Triple Leica Lens camera instead of the traditional Dual camera, which is also on the P20.
It is notable that, P20 Pro comes with the notch display on top, which houses the Front facing camera, Ambient light sensor and the receiver. Right now, some few Android fanboys are starting to like the P20 Pro despite the Notch display.
The P20 Pro arrives with a thin 6.1-inch FullView HD+ OLED panel with notch design display but doesn’t comes with Face ID. The Notch display on the P20 Pro is quite different from other phones with notch display. There is this software option that masks out the top of the screen so that the phone looks like it has a straight-line top bezel.
Quite innovative right? The notch will be masked by default when viewing photos and video anyway which isn’t available on P20. On the ground bezels, you have the physical home button that also houses the fingerprint print sensor too.
The colors on the new P20 Pro are more of gradient show than other Smartphones colors, it differs truly when compared to other phone’s colors. It shift colors when under light. The company pointed out that the gradient colour finish is exclusive to Twilight and Pink Gold.
The handset is IP67 rated, where it features dust and water resistance. As the company said, the resistance changes over time and users are warned not charge a wet phone, as it may result to unforeseen events.
Camera and Connectivity

On the back camera, the P20 Pro arrives with a 40 MP RGB + f/1.8 aperture that gives a more higher sharpness, color accuracy, focus and contrast, also called Light Fusion, the 2µm quad-pixel pixels is the first to be seen on any Smartphone sensor combined with a 20 MP Monochrome, f/1.6 aperture and 8 MP optically stabilized telephoto camera + f/2.4 aperture.
This handset camera features 3x optical zoom and also allows you to zoom into any subject with 5X Hybrid Zoom. It also supports autofocus (laser focus, deep focus, phase focus, contrast focus). There is the 4D predictive focus for capturing any objects in a motion.
The company also introduced the AI Image stabilization too. With this, your shots are contrast balanced and blur-free, handheld shots in low-light using Night Mode. And it comes with artificial intelligence stabilization (AIS) which works on the basis of object recognition.
For taking the most mind-blowing Videos, Huawei brings in 960 fps Super Slow Motion; when the video is on-going, it helps you to slow it down and probably, takes the perfect shot too.
On the front facing selfie camera, the P20 Pro features a high 24 MP + f/2.0 aperture, supports fixed focal length and the light fusion too but unfortunately, there is no Face ID.
