When all the smartphones are being launched back to back, Huawei, the Chinese smartphone manufacturing giant, is not lagging behind, as well. That being said, Huawei has launched two camera-centric smartphones, the Huawei P20 Pro with premium specifications and is obviously a flagship one, while the other i.e. the Huawei P20 Lite is a mid-budget smartphone, priced at almost around Rs. 20,000. Those who have followed the MWC 2018, might know about the Huawei P20 Pro; but there wasn’t any mention about the budget Huawei P20 Lite, which is announced just one or two days ago.
Huawei P20 Pro
The Huawei P20 price is around Rs. 65,000, and the most enticing point of this device is the triple camera setup, making it the ideal device for the true camera or DSLR lovers along those are looking for a flagship-grade device in camera segment. The Huawei P20 Pro features a 20 MP f1.6 aperture camera with monochrome sensor, a 40 MP f1.8 aperture RGB camera and finally an 8 MP f2.4 aperture telephoto lens camera.
Being the camera as the USP of this device, it will surely come with a lot of possibilities, and one of them is the ability to record slow motion videos at 960 frames per second. The telephoto lens will also be capable for 3X optical zoom, along with 4X digital zoom, which is yet another thing to love. For the selfie lovers out there, the Huawei P20 Pro features a 24 MP f2.0 front facing camera. The camera of the Huawei P20 Pro is really satisfying, and there isn’t any doubt about it.
The Huawei P20 Pro is powered by a Kirin 970 octa-core processor based on the Cortex A53 and Cortex A73 architecture, with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. For graphics, the Kirin 970 also comes with Mali G72 GPU, which can also be helpful for high-quality video recording. The device is even bundled with 4000 mAh battery and that too with support for fast charging. Huawei also claims, the P20 Pro can also be the best replacement for a DSLR, but that claim is yet to be verified, and that can only be done, once we get hands on the device.
Huawei P20 Lite
The Huawei P20 Lite on the other hand come will come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and the Huawei P20 Lite screen size is 5.8 inch. The Huawei P20 Lite display is a TFT LCD display, which is a Full HD+ display, for best visibility. Moving on to the camera, the Huawei P20 Lite camera will though have a dual rear camera setup with 16 MP and 2 MP cameras, and the aperture will be f2.2 for both the cameras. To please the selfie lovers, the Huawei P20 Lite front camera will be 16 MP with f2.0 aperture. For the best experience of using the device, the Huawei P20 Lite battery will be 3000 mAh, which can be enough to make the device run easily for a day, with the single charge, under normal circumstances. Oh yes, Huawei P20 Lite also support fast charging.
Moving on to the SoC, RAM, and storage of the Huawei P20 Lite, it will be powered by a Kirin 659 octa-core processor, along with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. It is the only RAM and storage variant, which is available for this device, and will also support external SD card, up to 256 GB. Though the user can either use two SIM cards or a single SIM and an SD card, which means, the Huawei P20 Lite SIM slot will be hybrid.
Thus, the Huawei P20 specs for both the devices are pretty good. How the Huawei P20 Lite and P20 Pro will actually function in real life, with the given Huawei P20 specification, is yet to be observed. The Huawei P20 camera for both the handsets will be pretty good, and it is yet to be seen, how Huawei will optimize the hardware to function properly with Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8.0 and 8.1, on Huawei P20 Lite and Pro respectively.
