Huawei P20 Pro Specifications

A report by suggests that the P20 Pro, which has been codenamed Charlotte, will come with three cameras at the rear. The 40MP sensor will be one of the highest ever megapixel count in a smartphone, in the lines of the 41MP Nokia PureView camera present in Nokia 808 and Lumia 1020.

The 40MP sensor will also likely have a 5x hybrid zoom capability. Until now all the smartphones have had 2x lossless zoom, due to a second telephoto lens. The new 5x optical zoom will be a new technology to look forward to. The aperture of the three lenses in the smartphone is expected to be between f/1.6 and f/2.4.

All the sensors will be codeveloped by Leica, a German camera manufacturer that has previously collaborated with Huawei on their Mate 10 series.

There are reports of the third sensor having AI functionalities too. The front of the phone might sport a 24MP sensor. The P20 Pro is expected to sport a 6.1-inch OLED display, with resolution of 2240×1080 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The device will have 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It appears that the phone will have a digit reader in the front, in the bezel below the screen.

P20 Pro will likely house a 4000mAh battery with fast charging capability. All the handsets in the P20 series will be powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 970 chipset. The P20 Pro might also sport a front-facing fingerprint scanner.
