Huawei's new flagship features a well-known cutout and three (!) Rear cameras – which broke DxOMark's record

It was not just Apple that introduced news today.

After Xiaomi, the Huawei, one of the fastest-rising smartphone makers in recent times, presented its latest weapons to the pocket computer war. The P20 family brings everything you expect from a flagship in 2018: high-end components, plenty of memory, almost borderless display and yes, a cutout feature (notch).

There are only two devices in the new line: P20 it's the P20 Protop of the line; Let's focus on the latter, which is impressive for a number of factors. The main one? Its system, produced in partnership with Leica, has three (yes, 3!) Rear cameras, one of them with 40 (!) Megapixels. The others are a 20 megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8MP telephoto lens. With this, we have the best of all worlds greatest light capture with the black and white sensor and optical zoom capabilities, as in recent iPhones.

Huawei's efforts seem to have paid off: the P20 Pro has taken from the Samsung Galaxy S9 + the best smartphone camera crown ever rated by DxO Labs, with an incredible 109 points in the DxOMark test. Let's look at some comparisons made by scientists (click on images to enlarge):

In addition to the powerful camera, the P20 Pro features a 6.1 inch OLED display, Kirin 970 processor (produced by Huawei itself), 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a 4,000mAh battery. The fingerprint sensor is at the front, squeezed into the tiny bottom edge of the device, and we have no headphone output signal here the only physical connection to the outside world to the USB-C port. Also interesting is the design of the pet, with a glass back with a beautiful gradient that breaks the traditional conventions of smartphone design.

Not to mention that I didn't talk about the flowers, the "ordinary" P20 is also a pretty respectable device, with a 5.8 inch LCD screen and dual camera system (here, without the monochrome lens). The processor and storage capacity are the same, as is the (unfortunate) absence of the 3.5mm output; Here we have only (?) 4GB of RAM, however.

Ah, there's more: if the P20 Pro is not enough for its hunger for luxury and power, Huawei will also release a special version of the handset in partnership with Porsche. The call Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS It features an even higher resolution screen (2880 × 1440 pixels, against the more modest brother's Full HD + panel), 256GB or 512GB of storage and a second Digital reader, built into the screen itself because of this, the secondary reader has been moved to the back of this version.

All devices run Android 8.1 “Oreo” and will hit the market on April 12 but not in the United States because of Huawei's problems with the US government. In Europe, however, they will cost 650 (P20), 900 (P20 Pro) and take a deep breath 2,100 (Porsche). Did they salivate?
