The Huawei P20 Pro was launched at a prestigious event in Grand Palais, Paris on 27 March 2018. Weeks later and the hype still hasn’t died down. Everyone is crushing on its camera, and for good reason. The revolutionary Leica Triple camera is changing the game in a big way and we can’t get enough of it. Here’s why we think this is the phone to have if you relish the opportunity to cause a bit of social envy.

It’s Literally Got Three Cameras

Just when we thought dual cameras were cool, Huawei whips out the Leica Triple Camera, and we’re shook. The P20 Pro features a 40MP camera backed up by a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP telephoto lens. Now if you’re a photography afficianado, it may interest you to know that the P20 Pro’s higher ‘focal length’ means that it can enhance the foreground and blur the background – a similar effect can be produced by most DSLR cameras. Now that’s impressive.

Low Light is No Match For This Cam

Techies and smartphone photography enthusiasts have been giving the Huawei P20 Pro rave reviews due to its ability to produce crystal-clear pics even in low light. Forbes just gave the P20 Pro the coveted title of “industry-best low light camera performance and battery life”. Its impressive image processing tech means that the phone can shoot long-exposure shots like a pro, allowing the image sensors to capture more light.

Artificial Intelligence Mastered

The real OMG factor of the Huawei P20 Pro camera is its artificial intelligence capabilities. Believe it or not, as you prepare to take a picture, the camera can recognize 19 different subject categories in real-time. In other words, the P20 Pro can recognise a cat, a group, greenery, fireworks, a beach, a waterfall and a range of other subjects. It then automatically adjusts its settings to ensure that the photo produced is the best it can be. Wowzers.

Take Selfies Like No Other

If you’ve got selfies down to a science, you’ll be impressed by the Huawei P20 Pro’s ability to contour your features so you always capture your best side. Its built-in 3D portrait lighting, coupled with AI-driven facial modelling technology, adjusts your photo to ensure the most flattering selfie. Quick selfies become striking portraits. Voilà!
