Huawei Dives Into In-Display Fingerprint Scanning with New Porsche Design Phone

Huawei Dives Into In-Display Fingerprint Scanning with New Porsche Design Phone

As for the camera of the P20 Pro which is the biggest highlight of the device, it sports a triple rear camera setup which includes a 40 MP f/1.7 primary sensor, along with a 20 MP secondary as well as an 8 MP sensor.

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.

On the P20 there is a dual camera setup, consisting of a 12-megapixel RGB sensor (f/1.8 aperture) and 20-megapixel Monochrome sensor (f/1.6 aperture). This time on All Hands on Tech, we got to take a first look at the new P20 and P20 Pro at a Huawei event in New York City. Up front, there's a 24-megapixel sensor with support for 3D Portrait Lightning and Portrait Mode.

The Huawei P20 Series also feature ultra-thin bezels and a Huawei FullView Display (5.8-inch for the Huawei P20 and 6.1-inch for the Huawei P20 Pro). Huawei has also teamed up again with Porsche Design to deliver a special edition of the P20 called the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS. The display, RAM, camera and battery specs are different between the two. The report says that the new smartphone will be launched alongside the P20 and P20 Pro.

The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are available at the following prices from local online retailer Technomobi. Both devices are running EMUI 8.1 which is Huawei's Android skin that is built on Oreo 8.1. Powering the Pro is a 4000mAh battery which supports Huawei's SuperCharge. It's also one-upping the rest of the smartphone camera world with a whopping three cameras on the back.

The Huawei P20 Pro has now been announced, officially taking the spot of top flagship from the Chinese smartphone manufacturer.

"The Mate RS has a 6" FullView OLED display with a 2880 x 1440 resolution. Its unique feature: it has two fingerprint sensors - one at the rear and an in-screen fingerprint sensor underneath the display.

The young man who killed 20 first-graders and six educators in the Sandy Hook shooting in CT in 2012 used a Bushmaster. Remington will reportedly relinquish control of the company to creditors who will assume its debt.

Alright, so you're probably wondering what's going on with this triple lens camera?

Huawei have incorporated what they're calling "light fusion technology" to join 4 pixels of the same colour together together in order to capture more light. This was all down to the neural processing unit (NPU) and the Kirin 970, which the new P20 and P20 Pro share.

That third camera sensor - and the tricks that come with it - are only available on the Pro variant of the device.

Commenting ahead of the launch, Ms Kiranjeet Kaur, senior research manager of client devices at IDC Asia-Pacific, told Channel NewsAsia that a "great camera in a flagship smartphone is a must-have".

Priced at an unfathomable €1,695 for 6GB RAM and 256GB or €2,095 for 6GB RAM and 512GB!

If you really want your P20 to stand out then the Twilight or Pink Gold shade is the one to go for, as these sport a rainbow-like effect rather than being a single color - something you can't get on the Huawei P10. The Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS may be the companys best phone to date!
