Huawei P20 loses the 40MP camera and 5x hybrid zoom of the P20 Pro

If the P20 Pro has three cameras, but the Huawei P20 has only two, which one gets dropped? The 40MP camera, the telephoto one or the black & white one? It turns out its not going to be like that.

The non-Pro model will simply go back to the battle-tested camera setup of the Mate10 a 12MP color sensor and a 20MP b&w sensor. The camera will still offer a zooming feature, though at only 2x, its not as impressive as Pros 5x hybrid zoom.

The P20 camera will still record 960fps videos at 720p resolution, according to detailed info from WinFuture. And it will keep the 24MP selfie camera from the Pro model. This selfie cam will use Kirin 970s NPU for Light Fusion – an AI-powered way to brighten up the image.

Anyway, this model will have a 5.8 LCD screen. The aspect ratio is an odd 18.7:9 with a notch for the selfie cam and assorted gadgetry.

The chipset will be paired with 4GB of RAM (2GB less than the Pro) and 128GB of UFS storage. The expected price for the Huawei P20 is 680, a good discount on the 900 Pro model.
