Huawei has a great challenge ahead. After presenting the new models of the Huawei P20 range in society, it is the turn of the Chinese manufacturer to try to dethrone the Samsung Galaxy S9 + as the best mobile for photographers of the moment. That is why in this comparison we directly face the Huawei P20 Pro with the Samsung Galaxy S9 + .
He Samsung Galaxy S9 + arrived to the Spanish market a little more than 10 days ago. The Samsung terminal presents interesting new features such as the new processor Exynos 8895 or 6 GB of RAM, but certainly the highlight of the smartphone of the Korean firm is its dual camera, which lands for the first time in the S range supported by a novel system of variable opening.
This double camera of the Samsung Galaxy S9 + has turned the smartphone on the phone with the best camera on the market . To snatch the terminal this prestigious honor, Huawei adds a third sensor to the camera of the Huawei P20 Pro . The images shown during the presentation show a quality beyond any doubt thanks to the use of the RGB sensor of 40 mpx, the monochromatic sensor of 20 mpx and the telephoto lens of 8 mpx. For the moment in the multimedia component we leave a technical draw, as the Huawei model must still pass through our hands.
In terms of design, we are looking at similar mobile devices, not only for mounting a full screen of such a visualization format (18.7: 9 in the Huawei P20 Pro and 18.5: 9 in the Samsung Galaxy S9 + ), but by betting on more than one lens in the back. Yes, while the Samsung model moves the fingerprint reader to the back and keeps the headphone minijack, the smartphone of the Chinese chooses to remove the minijack and keep the fingerprint sensor on the physical button located under the display.
As for the rest of the internal specifications of the mobile, nothing better than to take a look at the following table to notice the differences and the similarities of this comparison Huawei P20 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S9 + .
In terms of performance, we are facing similar smartphones, the Exynos 9810 it seems to be slightly above Kirin 970 that mounts the Huawei P20 Pro, but the Chinese brand supplements this difference with twice the internal memory, although both phones are compatible with MicroSD cards. In addition, both Huawei P20 Pro as the Samsung Galaxy S9 + offer the user 6 GB of RAM.
Another common point that both have smartphones is the operating system, because the two come to the market with Android 8.1, with their respective layers of customization. The S9 + boasts of Samsung Experience 9.0 , with added functions of Artificial Intelligence through Bixby, while the P20 Pro has EMUI 8.1 with the AI functions provided by the Kirin processor NPU.
Where the Samsung Galaxy S9 + is on the screen, as it features a 6.2 “panel with QHD + resolution and AMOLED technology. Same technology found in the Huawei P20 Pro , although in this case they reach 6.1 inches and a Full HD + resolution. The Huawei model screen, for good and for bad, has a notch like the one in the iPhone X on top.
To meet these specifications “minor on screen” Huawei smartphone presents 500 mAh more battery than the model of the Korean firm.
Since both move in a fairly similar price range, in the absence of testing the camera’s Huawei P20 Pro under the same conditions as we did in the test and analysis of Samsung Galaxy S9 + , we can leave this clash in a technical draw. At this point it is the user who must choose between one or the other attending to more subjective issues such as the design of one or the other terminal, or its customization layer.
