The facts on Huawei P20 cameras 

March 25, 2019


Huawei cameras rock. End of. So, we decided to take a deeper look into what makes their P20 phone cameras so good. Plus, we’re going to give you a quick summary on the key differences and camera quality.

Huawei P20 range

The Huawei P20, P20 Lite, and P20 Pro all have AI features. This means they understand what type of image you’re trying to capture and adjust the focus and camera setting accordingly. Right up our street.


Huawei has an exclusive partnership with Leica Camera AG. A German company, world renowned for manufacturing products such as cameras, lenses, microscopes, and binoculars. The quality of Leica products is first rate. Their engineers not only design top quality lenses, but also sensors, tuning, and ISP, all to create an amazing camera experience. This in turn means you can take some pretty amazing pictures. Leica designs are built into both the P20 Pro and the standard P20.

P20 Pro and P20

Although both have Leica tech, the main contrast is that the P20 Pro has a triple lens camera – the world’s first. The 40MP light infusion sensor allows you to take spectacular pictures in extremely low light. So, you can get those incredible night shots when you’re out late with your mates. The 20MP black and white lens offers incredible depth with a 5x hybrid zoom to capture objects further away. The standard P20 also takes striking photos with sharp details in both daylight and low light. And – if you don’t need the extra zoom – it offers great image quality thanks to its 12MP RGB and 20MP monochrome sensors. Both have large screens with the P20 at 5.8in and P20 Pro at 6.1in. The P20 Pro also has an OLED display, which depicts slightly warmer colour tones.

Huawei P20 and P20 Lite

So, how does the camera on the P20 differ from the P20 Lite? The pocket-sized P20 Lite has a less powerful 16MP and 2MP dual lens camera. But still has the same screen size as the P20. It’s perfect for those Instagram selfie shots. The added extras of portrait mode – soft focus bokeh effect – and skin enhancement will make you look even more gorgeous. For Snapchat fans, it also has an AR setting for adding fun effects to images. As its name suggests, it’s a whole heap lighter to carry around when you’re on the go.

Your photos have never looked so good.
