Pre-orders for Huawei P20 range now open at Carphone Warehouse

"With its groundbreaking triple-lens camera on the Huawei P20 Pro, powerful artificial intelligence advances and stunning new colours, the new Huawei P20 Series is created to reflect beauty and light".

We've spent some time shooting with the new Huawei P20 Pro smartphone at an exclusive pre-briefing in London and at the official Huawei Europe press event in Paris. It would be interesting to see how the cameras on the P20 Pro stacks against the Pixel 2.

Huawei today finally took the wraps off its much-anticipated flagship smartphone lineup for 2018.

On the front of the Mate RS is a 6-inch OLED 2K curved screen which ups the resolution from FHD+ found on the P20. There's still a chin at the bottom of the display, though, even including a fingerprint sensor.

It comes with 128GB of internal storage, no microSD slot, no headphone jack and a USB Type-C port.

Huawei says that all these smartphones will be available immediately all over.

The main attraction of the Huawei P20 Pro is its primary camera. It has PDAF, laser autofocus, contrast autofocus, and depth detection autofocus. This camera setup features AI Image Stabilization and can also record slow-motion videos at a whopping 960 frames/second. It draws power from a 4,000mAh battery although unfortunately, there isn't a wireless charging option. It comes in Black, Blue, Pink Gold, and Twilight colors.

NY looks to block census question on citizenship
California, which has a large percentage of immigrant population, filed a lawsuit in federal court on March 27 against the U.S. Commerce Department and Census Bureau over the decision to reinstate the citizenship question in the 2020 decennial Census.

Huawei announced its flagship P-series duo a few hours ago.

The new Mate RSphone by Huawei, of its Porsche Design series, has plenty of unique features and "firsts" to brag with, besides the price (it is the first to crack the 2000 Euro barrier on the upside). The phone has a 5.8-inch Full HD+ (2240×1080) IPS display with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, a PenTile RGBW matrix, and 429 PPI.

It aims to set a new standard in premium smartphones, and has pushed the boundaries of technology thus far with the introduction of features like the world's first dual fingerprint, an AI-powered processor, and a Leica triple camera with 40MP image capture.

With this setup, Huawei attempts to achieve excellent performance in all lighting conditions, including extremely dark situations, on the P20 Pro. A triple lens camera though?

The Huawei P20 Pro features a Leica triple camera with the camera configuration is comprised of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens. The system can intelligently combine the data from both the RGB and the Monochrome sensors to produce brighter photos, with more detail, and richer colours, according to Huawei.

As for the design, Huawei has used several layers of NCVM optical coatings underneath a sheet of glass on the backs of the P20 and P20 Pro to achieve a reflection that varies in color depending on how the light is hitting it. The front-facing camera is a 16MP unit with fixed focus. It is backed by a 4000mAh battery and supports dual SIM cards (dual 4G + dual VoLTE support) as well. Dont be fooled by the name, this is actually an enhanced P20 Pro. They run on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with the custom EMUI 8.1 skin on top. The new phone will be available from 28 March for Euro 649, followed by a P20 Pro from 16 April for Euro 899.
