One of India’s top breaking news websites, has awarded HUAWEI P20 Pro with the honorary title of ‘Best Camera Phone of the Year,’ at the coveted Tech and Auto Awards.
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.
HUAWEI is well-regarded for its mobile photography innovation, particularly through its partnership with LEICA and its flagship smartphones, are known for their cutting-edge technology and best-in-class cameras.
The entry was shortlisted by a jury that included veterans from tech industry, such as Prasanto Kumar Roy, former Nasscom VP; Ashish Bhatia, veteran journalist; Nimish Dubey, tech columnist; Nishant Padhiar, founder Stuff and What Hi-Fi and Nishant Verma, ace photographer. HUAWEI P20 Pro has been awarded for the best smartphone camera due to its consistent, class-leading performance from all three lenses.
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.
