Huawei P20, P20 Pro and Porsche Design Mate RS hands-on photos

Both flagship devices have received the highest overall scores from DxO test lab and are considered to be the best camera smartphones for 2018.

The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS sports a 6-inch OLED display with a curved screen. The P20 Pro has a bigger 6.1-inch display with 18:7:9 as the aspect ratio and nearly identical resolution.

The Huawei P20 Pro features a Leica triple camera with the highest total pixel count on a smartphone - the camera configuration is comprised of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens.

And those looking to snap up one of the handsets from within the P20 range, SIM Free, can get the Huawei P20 Pro for £799 with the P20 available for £599. The display has an aspect ratio of 18:9. The dual fingerprint identification in both front and back are also easy keys to switch separate mobile spaces, a new level of privacy. Between the larger lenses, there is a laser transmitter for quick autofocus, and a Leica color temperature sensor as well.

Unlike some phones that have done away with a physical home button entirely, Huawei keeps the button, which also functions as a fingerprint sensor and acts a mini touchpad that can accept customised gestures. "With a breakthrough triple camera on the HUAWEI P20 Pro, an advanced dual camera on the HUAWEI P20, and powerful artificial intelligence on both, today's most vibrant consumers can capture and share the brilliance of the world around them". They got a primary camera of the 40-megapixel lens with AI Image Stabilization (AIS).

Huawei is nothing if not ambitious, and the P20 and P20 Pro are a clear challenge to the best phones in Samsung and Apple's respective stables.

Porsche Design calls Huawei's new Porsche Design Mate RS as the 911 GT3 RS of smartphones. The design of the phone takes a cue from the Mate 10 family, and the phone is available in two colour option: Black and Red. For instance, the front-mounted fingerprint sensor on the P20 Pro gets pushed to the back on the Porsche Mate RS - often seen as the preferred location - and Huawei has seen fit to include another cool concept: an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

The P20 has an IP53 rating for dust and water resistance while Huawei P20 Pro has an IP67 rating.

We run through the features of these two new Huawei smartphones, plus explain how the company has managed to fall afoul of the CIA, FBI and NSA.

Still, Huawei has been able to sell phones in the USA through direct sales channels such as Amazon. This gives it the same AI processing chops as the P20 and P20 Pro. The FreeBuds also comes with a carry case that offers extra charges.

The Huawei P20 has been priced at Euro 649 (~ Rs. 52,200) whereas the P20 Pro will cost you Euro 899 (~ Rs. 72,300).
