Tech And Auto Awards 2018 Winners: Huawei P20 Pro is The Best Camera Phone of The Year
Huwaei P20 Pro won the 'Best Camera Phone of The Year' award at the Tech And Auto Awards 2018.

The Best Camera Phone of the Year category was perhaps one of the most closely contested ones at the News18 Tech And Auto Awards 2018. The Apple iPhone XS Max went up against the Google Pixel 3 XL, the Huawei P20 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and the OnePlus 6T. In the end, the triple camera prowess of the Huawei P20 Pro emerged as the winner.

The three camera set-up combines a 40-megapixel (f/1.8 aperture) sensor, a 20-megapixel monochrome (f/1.6) sensor and an 8-megapixel (f/2.4) telephoto lens. The 40-megapixel sensor is 1/1.7 inches in size, and is the largest camera sensor in a smartphone since the 1/1.5-inch sensor seen in the Nokia Lumia 1020 way back in the year 2013. As a result, what you get are photographs which are brilliantly-detailed, sharp and with vibrant colours.

The Huawei P20 Pro is powered by Kirin 970 processor, paired with 6 GB RAM. It has a 4,000 mAh battery under the hood.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a big role in this phone. Let’s say you are framing a shot of your lunch, the camera will promptly detect “food” and switch to the best possible settings pre-set for that photograph. For portrait photographs too, the AI working in the background understands facial contours in the frame and blurs the background accurately.

Huawei has also relied on camera-maker Leica’s expertise to optimize the photography performance. The aperture range, from f/2.4 all the way to the large f/1.8, is ideal for varying ambient lighting. The P20 Pro uses a technology known as Pixel Fusion, which combines data from multiple pixels into one 2.0 um-size pixel each—this is when the camera shoots in the 10-megapixel setting, for better detailing in a low-light environment.
