Huawei P20 Pro Camera – What’s So Special?
Though every smartphone manufacturer is continuing to follow the dual camera trend, however, Huawei P20 Pro breaks the trend with the next generation triple rear camera technology. So, the P20 Pro is:
The world’s first smartphone equipped with Leica’s triple lenses and the highest pixel count
The middle one is the massive 40 MP RGB lens, with a f/1.8 aperture and 52mm focal length. At the top, we have the industry’s first 8 MP telephoto lens, with a perfect 3x optical zoom. Meanwhile, the bottom lens which separates from other two lenses is a 20 MP ultra-clear monochrome shooter with a f/1.6 aperture.
Moreover, the P20 Pro’s sensitivity can be set up to ISO 102400. Even without the use of a flash or a tripod, it can capture sharp images in extremely dark environments. The rear camera also supports AI photography which can intelligently identify 500+ scenes. Ultra-fast shutter speed allows the user to capture an image within 0.3 seconds.
