Over the past few days, we found out about the Huawei P20 Pro price, which seemed to be a little "bitter" considering the patterns of the past. It seems, however, that much of the extra cost is justified by top-quality photo performance. New information suggests that we will have to deal with one of the most advanced photo systems on the market, the three sensors with different functions, some of which are not on competing devices
According to WinFuture, Huawei chose to use a 40 megapixel sensor for the P20 Pro's main camera, plus a 20-megapixel black-and-white sensor and an 8 megapixel zoom sensor. While the black-and-white sensor will be used to enhance detail in normal photos and to add the bokeh effect in portrait mode, the zoom lens is very interesting
By default, it will provide a 3x zoom at 8 megapixel resolution, but used in tandem with the 40 megapixel main sensor, it will be able to provide the 5X optical zoom, the largest zoom factor on a smartphone so far, without use moving elements. Probably the software will combine the image captured by the zoom sensor with a cut from the center of the main sensor to form a sharp enlarged image
Higher resolution images with the phone casing also reveal the camera's "official" specifications. It will be equipped with VARIO-SUMMILUX lenses from LEICA, with f / 1.6 diaphragm for the main sensor and f / 2.4 for the other two. Also, the focal length for the main sensor is "normal," 27mm, similar to the previous models, while the zoom lens will provide a focal length of 80mm.
Among the special camera capabilities, apart from the above-average zoom, there is the possibility of filming at 960 frames per second in HD resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels), something we have seen so far only on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the last two generations of Xperia devices from Sony
