FORGET Apple and Samsung - your new favourite smartphone for achieving Instagram glory might be built by Huawei.

The big selling point with the Huawei P20 Pro is the triple lens, Leica branded, camera.

The Huawei P20 Pro is the most photo-centric smartphone that we've ever seen, offering a wealth of camera features that are created to help you "take flawless photos every time", at least according to Huawei. With the dual-lens Leica camera, the P20 is pretty straightforward, but with the P20 Pro, things start to get a little nuts.

"Camera highlights on the P20 Pro include an eight-megapixel lens with 5x telephoto zoom, a 40-megapixel colour camera as well as a dedicated monochrome lens that captures crisp black and white pictures". The AI software can detect over 500 different situations to optimise the camera settings, including long-exposure photos in the lowest light and a predictive sensor for correcting for movement. The P20 can also record 960fps slow-motion videos at 720p resolution.

Of the two, the Huawei P20 is the least interesting.

Although its internals are a big part of this, the AI smarts that both the P20 Pro and standard P20 have built-in will play their part too. Instead of a metal body, they have glass backs, just like the Huawei Mate 10.

The balanced Seminoles (23-11) got here by upending 1-seed Xavier then beating a 32-win Gonzaga team in the Sweet 16. Purdue came in ranked second nationally in 3-point percentage and connected on 7 of 18 for the game.

The P20 comes in Black, Champagne Gold, Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, and Twilight, while the P20 Pro comes in Black, Midnight Blue, Pink Gold, and Twilight.

The P20 comes with the 5.8-inch display while the P20 Pro has a 6.1-inch display, and both the phones have ultra-thin bezels, with the FullView Display featuring the 19:9 aspect ratio and a small notch on the top to house the camera and the sensors.

The Huawei P20 Series comes in an all-new exclusive colour called Twilight. The P20, on the other hand, comes with a 20MP main shooter and 12MP monochrome sensor with a sensor size of 1/1.7-inch but still retains all the features of its Pro cousin.

Huawei has collaborated with Porsche Design for the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS which is the most advanced phone among the ones released today.

This battery can also be refilled to over 50 per cent in 30 minute via quick charge technology although it's worth noting that the P20 Pro can't be charged wirelessly. If you're someone who fancies some more hype, Huawei is also launching a Porsche Design Mate RS that should suffice your collector's instinct. Customers looking to make a saving can save up to £100 on the device when bought with a SIMO plan from Carphone Warehouse. What's more, it " allows consumers to wake up the device by floating their finger above the display, while touching the sensor to unlock the device is lightning fast. There's also a 4,000 mAh battery. Today, the company has announced its latest Android flagships, the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro. While a sequel to that device hits the market this week, Huawei is still very much in an exclusive club with its Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS, establishing itself as another pioneer in mobile fingerprint biometrics.
