Huawei P20 Pro: how your triple camera works

Official! Huawei has just introduced the P20 Pro, your best mobile to date and the world’s first mobile with a triple camera . What will it do? Will it really be better than the competition? According to some people, yes .

Today, we tell you all about the Huawei P20 Pro camera , the most innovative and striking so far this year, and maybe a before and after in the history of the Chinese firm.

In the first place, we have to talk about Huawei P20 Pro camera hardware . We found a 40 megapixel main sensor , which includes the full RGB color spectrum, and which has an aperture of f / 1.8. The second sensor is typical monochrome that has been incorporating Huawei for years, in this case 20 megapixels, and with a spectacular opening f / 1.5.

The latest sensor is an 8 megapixel telephoto lens , with opening f / 2.4, the least luminous, but one of the most useful. All this hardware works together with an artificial intelligence, that improves the Mate 10 , and that will make our photographic results spectacular.

As usual, we have a collaboration with Leica , in this case for the three cameras. DxOMark has given the P20 Pro a score of 109 points , 10 above the Samsung Galaxy S9 + itself, which until now, topped the list .

In the case of the Huawei P20 Pro, it is mandatory to talk about technology Big Pixel . In this case, they have opted for this technology that, according to them, allows to collect more light in low light . What they do, is combine 4 small pixels into a large one . As you well know, the larger the pixels, the more light is collected . Thanks to this, we get the detail you get with the 40 megapixels, in a 10 megapixel photograph.

A good way to understand photography and take advantage of so many megapixels. It will remain to be seen in real comparisons, if it really is as good as it seems , we hope it is.

The 8 megapixel sensor is a telephoto, that allows you to zoom up to 3X optically . To this, we must add another 2X digital zoom, so the total zoom is 5X, well above 2X that we are so used to. Apart from the hardware, the software takes the same or greater importance , thanks to the artificial intelligence of the Kirin 970.

Unlike the Huawei Mate 10, the AI ​​seems to have much more functionality. In this case, it allows us to improve our photographs in various situations , as for example, those that we describe to you next.

  • Take pictures with ISO 102400

  • Stabilize long-exposure photographs

  • Analyze group photos to introduce more content

  • Detect different photographic situations to adapt the color

  • Help the user to frame correctly automatically

In the case of long exposure, it is spectacularly useful. It is the first mobile in which we can take night photos of up to 6 seconds without moving , something we can not do in any other. The Huawei P20 Pro also releases its own OIS + EIS technology – something we’ve already seen in Google Pixel – although in this case, aided by artificial intelligence.

Apart from the photographs, we can record video at 960 FPS and HD resolution , like we already saw in the top of Sony or Samsung range. It is thus, the first Huawei mobile with super slowmotion, something that many had been waiting for a while.

The previously mentioned stabilization will help to record a higher quality video, with resolutions of up to 4K. As you can see, the camera of the Huawei P20 Pro is, on paper, the best on the market , waiting for real comparisons in which we can check whether this is the case or not.

Of what there is no doubt, it is the incredible blow on the table that they have managed to find with this camera. At last, Huawei is up or surpassing direct competition , and making it clear that he wants the first place in the high range.
