Huawei Mate 20 Pro faces major camera competition from a new budget rival

Huawei Mate 20 Pro faces major camera competition from a new budget rival

Huawei Mate 20 Pro was unveiled back in October and boasts a legion of innovative features that make it appealing.

The device comes with a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen that displays content at a 1440p resolution and offers commendable viewing angles, too.

Moreover, such a panel can easily be used throughout an entire day thanks to the handset’s 4,200mAh battery.

Mate 20 Pro also comes pre-installed with Android 9 Pie and runs Huawei’s own EMUI skin on top of it.

However, the phone’s headline act is by far its triple-camera array that can capture detailed and unique shots.

Mate 20 Pro comes with a 40-megapixel main sensor that is accompanied by an additional 20-megapixel wide-angle and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens.

The device’s main system is used for most shots, but the wide-angle allows for more subjects to fit into a single image while the telephoto allows users to zoom in while retaining glorious amounts of clarity.

Huawei’s newest flagship offers one of the best camera systems on the market, as we noted in our review of the device.

But it appears Honor is set to radically challenge the Mate 20 Pro by offering a device with a 48-megapixel main sensor and an all-screen design featuring a hole-punch-style front-facing camera.

The Chinese firm has lifted the lid on a number of features its new View 20 device will boast ahead of its official reveal on January 22 in Paris.

Honor recently discussed the phone in Hong Kong ahead of the event next year and confirmed it will boast Sony’s new IMX586 camera sensor on its rear.

The IMX586 was revealed by Sony earlier this year and boasts 48-megapixels that are able to retain incredible levels of detail overall.

GSMArena attended the View 20’s initial unveiling in Hong Kong and posted images of the front of the device.

The hardware was shown featuring a futuristic front panel with a noticeable cutout for the front-facing camera.

The View 20 was also shown running Huawei’s EMUI skin on top of Google’s Android operating system.

Finally, GSMArena also posted a number of images that were allegedly taken on the View 20.

The device was shown to be incredibly capable in low and bright light conditions.

The former in particular featured little noise, grain and light was generally tamed well by the device.

It seems Honor is determined to deliver a quality photo-capturing experience to rival high-profile flagship devices.

However, it is expected the firm will maintain its signature ethos of offering hardware at a budget cost.

The Honor View10 launched for £399.99 and it is possible its successor could cost around the same figure.

Honor View 20 will be detailed further in China on December 26 before the hardware’s global launch takes place in Paris the following month.
