It has been evident since its official announcement: Huawei P20 Pro is a smartphone with amazing camera performance. And immediately after its launch in the market, it started receiving positive feedback. The handset has just received its first official award by TIPA (Technical Image Press Association), a non-profit organization which cooperates with 30 publications in the photography and images sector every year, in order to create ranking that establish which are the best cameras in the market. TIPA tests and evaluates cameras every year, then selects the best ones for its rankings and assigns awards for several sectors of photography.
According to TIPA, Huawei P20 Pro is the best photo smartphone of 2018. The handset features the first triple camera in the mobile phone markets. Its rear setup is composed of a 40 MP primary RGB sensor with a f/1.8 aperture, a secondary monochromatic sensor with a 20 MP resolution and a f/1.6 aperture, and a third 8 MP telephoto lens with a f/2.4 aperture and OIS. It can record 4K videos and 960fps slow-motion videos in 720p. TIPA’s award is not the only confirmation of the outstanding photographic performance of the latest Huawei’s flagship. Currently, the device is also at the first place of the best camera phones ranking by DxOMark with a score of 109 points.
The second and third place are actually taken by the standard P20 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus with 102 and 99 points, respectively. So, Huawei P20 Pro and P20 are currently the only mobile phones which crossed the 100 points milestone on DxOMark. The big sensors are not the only elements contributing to the incredible photo quality of these flagships: there is also an outstanding algorithm handling photos and videos. The rear triple camera also supports artificial intelligence to improve the quality through scene recognition and other smart features, thanks to the NPU (Neural Processing Unit) present in the octa-core Kirin 970 SoC.
