Huawei P20 and P20 Pro specs, release date and price

Huawei has announced its 2018 flagship P-series devices, replacing the Huawei P10 with the Huawei P20. Why the big change in numbers, skipping over P11? Because this is a massive change, according to Huawei, that deserves a bigger step in numeration.

The Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro form the new top-tier pairing, changing up the design and build quality to be more competitive and promising to take down all rivals from big name manufacturers like Samsung and Apple.

Now that the Huawei P20 is official, here’s everything you need to know about it.

Huawei P20 and P20 Pro specifications

The P20 and P20 Pro are the high-end phones here and both have comparable specs, including Huawei’s Kirin 970 processor that’s found in the Mate 10 Pro. They are noticeably different to the P10 and P10 Plus.

Here’s a breakdown of the specs for each device:

Huawei P20 specs

  • Kirin 970 octa-core processor
  • 5.84in Full-HD+ (2244×1080) ‘notch’ screen
  • 4GB RAM
  • 128GB storage + microSD
  • Leica 12Mp + 20Mp dual-camera
  • Front fingerprint scanner
  • 3400mAh battery
  • USB-C
  • IP53 waterproof
  • Android 8.0 Oreo

Huawei P20 Pro specs

  • Kirin 970 octa-core processor
  • 6.1in Full-HD+ (2240×1080) ‘notch’ screen
  • 6GB RAM
  • 128GB storage + microSD
  • Leica 40Mp + 20Mp + 8Mp triple-camera
  • Front fingerprint scanner
  • 4000mAh battery
  • USB-C
  • Android 8.0 Oreo

And although not officially announced, here are the specs of the rumoured P20 Lite that could be announced at a later date:

Huawei P20 Lite specs

  • Kirin 659 octa-core processor
  • 5.84in Full-HD+ (2280×1080) ‘notch’ screen
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • 16Mp + 2Mp dual-camera
  • 16Mp selfie camera
  • Rear fingerprint scanner
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 2900mAh battery
  • Micro-USB 2.0
  • Android 8.0 Oreo
  • 148.6×71.2×7.4mm
  • 145g

The inclusion of a notch, vertical camera protrusion and a metal and glass design means the P20 is undeniably influenced by the iPhone X.

Huawei P20 Displays

The screen on the P20 is a 5.84in 2244×1080 18.7:9 LCD display while the Pro is a larger 6.1in OLED with 2240×1080 resolution. Huawei labels both as ‘fullview’ displays.

The P20 and P20 Pro lack a headphone jack, though Huawei supplies USB-C headphones and a 3.5mm headphone jack adapter in the boxes.

Huawei P20 Display

Interestingly, there is an option in the display settings to hide the notch by introducing a black strip at the top of the screen. Clearly Huawei knows not everyone is going to love the design, so it’s a clever way to keep people from moaning about a feature that is inevitably going to crop up on several flagship smartphones this year.

Huawei P20 Cameras

The P20 has a 12Mp colour and 20Mp monochrome sensor with f/1.8 and f/1.6 apertures respectively. The P20 Pro impresses further with a triple camera set up, with a 40Mp (yes, forty) colour, 20Mp monochrome and 8Mp telephoto lens.

It’s worth noting only the 8Mp lens has OIS, meaning the other two sensors on the Pro, and both on the regular P20, only have AI-assisted stabilisation rather than physical stabilisation. Huawei claims the tech inside the phones, especially the P20 Pro, assists photography that lifts results above its competitors (though all manufacturers claim this, obviously).
