Triple camera? More like triple deal breaker. First of all who needs 6.1 inch display, most of us look for compact 5.7 inch bezelless phone. Secondly, nobody likes a notch because its an eyesore. Lastly, that EMUI software is ugly and needs customised android like Oxygen OS to support the AMOLED screen from long term burn in issues
In 1/2.3 sensor you would cramp 40 megapixels!!! Then detail level of your photo will be crap that iPhone 4s
Bokeh effects are fake and gimmicky. I don't need them. The third camera here is redundant.
Zenodroid, 20 Mar 2018What do you prefer? Notch or edged screen? Oh, sorry. I forgot you are one of those Samsung sheeps. I dont like notch but huawei make it p20 look great
Yup looks good and premium without the 'Huawei' name barking at the front panel.
Insteresting, But I just more interested on their mid range phone.
Hate the copied design from iPhone X! I wonder why they have to copy Apple even in its stupidest designs???

Anonymous, 20 Mar 2018It probably has very tiny pixels, like 0.8 micron or smaller. It might be 1/2.6" or smallerWhich means we can not expect the same quality from the 40 Mpix camera as PureView camera. High noise level will be there. Huge amount of post processing will be there.

F4?) and second in a slim phone? that small flange focal lens, the height of the lens.. that lens would have to be a wonder of optics to not have high distortion, coma, chroma aberration, etc.
ArtyKim79, 20 Mar 2018Haaahaaahaaa Huawe what? Who buys such a brand in the first place anyway?Huawei sales surpass apple last year, just behind samsung. They are top 3 brand in the world. Yeah your the minority.

The Lx100 has a 16.8 megapixel sensor, but you only get 12.8 megapixels in 4:3 mode. I guess they couldn't make the lens larger without making the camera bigger, so instead they used a smaller area of the sensor for different aspect ratios that are covered by the image circle.
Anonymous, 20 Mar 2018This sensor is not Sony's. Who makes it? Well, on the other hand, if I remember right, Sony's bought Tosbiha's image sensor business and it's already been almost 2 years since the completion of the transfer. And since Toshiba was responsible for 41Mpx sensor in L808 Pureview, maybe they already have the technology to make it possible, if Huawei has made a custom order...

As far as I know no mobile image sensor with a smaller pixel pitch than 0.9 micrometer has ever been produced. And 0.9 micrometer sensors are even very new. Recently 1.0 micrometer was the smallest pixel pitch you could get as far as I know.
If it's a multi aspect ratio sensor, then 40 megapixels could be related to the total resolution. This was also the case with the 41 megapixel sensor of the Lumia 1020. You would only get nearly 41 megapixels if you combined a 4:3 photo with a 16:9 photo. You got 38 megapixels in 4:3 mode, but the resolution of the sensor was 41 megapixels.
Zenodroid, 20 Mar 2018It's Leica. You clearly don't know Huawei. Their flagship is and will always be Leica. Wtf? I'm using Mate 10, and my wife Mate 9. It is clearly they using Sony Sensor with LEICA OPTICS before (As example Huawei P9 using Sony imx286. Stop making a fun of yourself. U even own Huawei?

Also if you don't get 40mp in 4:3 in what aspect ratio you will get that? 1:1? Does the phone will let you take pictures in 1:1? Isn't that "cheating" (other brands only give mp as in 4:3 ratio)?
If the pixel pitch is 0.9 micrometrer, then the sensor area is larger than a 1/2" sensor. It might be a multi aspect ratio sensor in order to keep the lens small, for example Sony's Xperia XZ2 uses a multi aspect ratio sensor with a sensor area that is very similar to the area of a 1/2" sensor. The Lumia 1020 also had a multi aspect ratio sensor. So you might not get 40 megapixels in 4:3 mode.
