Huawei P20 And P20 Pro Officially Unveiled In France – Notched Screen And Leica Triple Camera (P20 Pro)


The highly-awaited Huawei P20 series flagship smartphone is now official. Yesterday, at a specific event in Paris, France the company officially lifted the veil of the all-new Huawei P20 and P20 pro flagship smartphones. The duo of new smartphones came up with notched screens, stereo speakers, and a new Leica Triple Camera.

The rear side of the devices has a glass panel where the P20 Pro has the dual-tone paint job that shifts color depending on how it catches the light. The phone looks premium but you need to keep a fiber cloth to wipe away the patterns of the fingerprint.

Both the devices have same build and design and the Pro variant is IP67 rated for dust and water resistance. Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 comes pre-installed.

If you are not a notch fan you can hide it by darkening the top portion of the screen. The Huawei claims its Face Unlock is 2x faster compared to the iPhone X. The P20 and P20 Pro will light up their screens if you are in a dark room for the feature to work.
