Last year, Huawei unveiled their P10, which was more of an incremental update than a new flagship. Even though it was an incremental update, it was considered to be a decent smartphone. Following their trend of adding more cameras than you ever need in your life, this time the P20 series packs a punch. The P20 series has two different models – P20 and P20 Pro. Let’s take a closer look at the device itself.

Huawei P20 & P20 Pro

What’s the same across the two devices?

Starting from under the hood, you’ll find both the devices are powered by HUAWEI Kirin 970 processor – an octa-core processor that’s clocked in at 2.36 GHz. It also packs an i7 co-processor for the Artificial Intelligence. As for the storage, you get a 128GB Internal Storage. Both of the devices will run the latest EMUI 8.1 on top of the latest Android Oreo 8.1.

What’s the difference between the two devices?

The Huawei P20 comes with a 5.8″ 1080p LCD display wheres the P20 Pro comes with a 6.1″ 1080p OLED display. As for the RAM – the P20 comes with 4GB RAM whereas the P20 Pro packs 6GB RAM. The P20 packs a 3400 mAh battery whereas the P20 Pro packs  a whopping 4000 mAh battery.

Let’s jump on to the main difference between both the device. That is the camera.
