After the launch of Huawei P20 in Nepal, Huawei has quickly bolstered its lineup with yet another addition. This time it’s the new Huawei P20 Pro. The P20 Pro is possibly the most talked about phone in the smartphone industry; the reason being its triple Leica powered camera at the back.
The Leica powered lens tops all its competitors in terms of DxO Mark scores. Among those three lenses, the separated one is a 20MP monochrome sensor with f/1.6 aperture. Moving just a little bit above, we can see the two big lenses. The pair of two sensors comprises of 40MP 1/1.7″ large color sensor, f/1.8 lens, and OIS, while the second one has an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto lens.
The camera has a 4-way autofocus, a dual-LED dual-tone flash, and a color temperature sensor. And the cameras are capable of 3x optical zoom and 5x hybrid zoom.
The AI-powered camera not only is useful for scene detection but also helps in a better low-light exposure. Other noticeable features include a ridiculous ISO of 102,400 and slow-mo video capturing at 960fps @ 720p; just like the recently launched Galaxy S9.
Like its rear, the front of the phone bears an equally powerful optics. Selfies are taken care of by a 24MP lens with f/2.0 aperture which is also useful for face unlocking system. It’s 2x faster than iPhone X‘s FaceID.
While the camera is certainly a feature that most of the people would be looking for, the phone’s rest of feature is no slouch either. The Huawei P20 Pro comes with a bigger 6.1-inch display with 18.7:9 aspect ratio. The notched display — which can be turned off — bears a resolution of 1080 x 2244 pixel, while the Always on feature will be handy. Just below the screen is a fingerprint scanner.
Inside the helm of its heart is Huawei’s own Kirin 970 chipset with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s also an IP68 rating, providing a security against dust and water. Regardless of what the phone has to offer or not, the P20 Pro’s Twilight color scheme is a true beauty and a head turner for sure. And then the 4,000mAh battery is an icing on the cake for this powerful yet beautiful phone.
Pricing and Availability in Nepal
The Huawei P20 Pro is a beast and a beauty on its own, there’s no second thought on it. However, like every single piece of flagships, the phone comes at a price. With a price tag of Rs. 99,900 in Nepal the Huawei P20 Pro is on par (or above) other flagships, in terms of pricing.
If you have enough cash laying around and want to try something different rather than just Samsung and Apple, or just appreciate the audacity of Huawei, the phone is definitely worth its price tag.
