The forthcoming Huawei P20 Pro will sport not one, not two — but three rear cameras, if rumors to be believed. A new report says one of these shooters will feature a whopping 40 megapixels, uncommon for flagships these days.
Only some of Nokia's handsets, such as the Lumia 1020, have dabbled with high megapixel counts in the past, with the 1020 sporting a 41-megapixel primary camera that to this day still takes phenomenal photographs. Huawei is going to mimic Nokia's footsteps, it seems like, by including a 40-megapixel lens on the back of the P20 Pro alongside an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, according to WinFuture.
That's a lot of cameras for a phone, but if there's one aspect of smartphones that still has the capacity for improvement, it's the camera. Flagship devices already come with excellent cameras, including the Google Pixel 2, the Samsung Galaxy S9, and even the iPhone X, but Huawei hopes to blow them all out of the water.
Huawei P20 Pro Rumors
WinFuture's leak includes basically every information about the P20 Pro that's leaked thus far, including a full list of specs. The thing is, though, most of these details already hit the internet some time ago, including the rumored design of the phones, which Evan Blass leaked earlier this March.
Huawei is expected to unveil three new P-series near the end of March, including the P20 Pro, P20 Lite, and the base P20. Suppose WinFuture's report is accurate, it seems Huawei distinguishes each model by their camera capabilities: the P20 Pro is for those who are serious about smartphone photography, while the other two are for those who are content with typical dual camera systems.
Huawei P20 Pro Specs
The P20 Pro will reportedly come with a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a 2,240 x 1080p resolution, working out to a 19:9 aspect ratio. The display includes an iPhone X-style notch, and on the bottom is a fingerprint sensor. The phone will pack a Kirin 970 processor with Neural Processing Units for Artificial Intelligence features.
The phone will boast 6 GB of RAM with 128 GB of onboard storage, and some regions might offer a 256 GB variant. Keeping everything juiced up is a 4,000 mAh battery that supports Huawei's SuperCharge technology. The handset also comes with IP67 certification for water and dust resistance.
