P20 Pro camera beaten? Huawei set to reveal big new upgrade next month

Huawei P20 Pro released back in March and is widely considered to have one of the best smartphone cameras on the market.

P20 Pro gained a ton of attention for its triple-camera setup that is capable of taking incredible snaps.

The phone particularly excels in low-light conditions, as Express.co.uk noted in our review of the product.

Technology Editor David Snelling said: “The P20 Pro has so many party tricks up its sleeve even the most amateur of photographers should be able to snap like a pro.

“The triple camera allows this phone to add DSLR-style depth of field to your images as well as offering a 5x hybrid and 3x optical zoom.

“There’s also a F1.6 aperture which helps shoot photos when the lights get low and the inclusion of the incredible Night Mode means you can even get decent results in total darkness.

“That’s because the P20 Pro uses some clever tech to open the shutter for up to eight seconds whilst automatically keeping the lens perfect still in your hands.”


The sensors on the P20 Pro were also praised by DxOMark, an independent camera benchmarking authority.

The site is renowned for assessing smartphone cameras and awarding a numbered score based on performance.

P20 Pro currently tops the smartphone leaderboard with a score of 109 and is closely followed buy the HTC U12+ with a tally of 103.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is tied for second place with the same 103 figure.

But now a user on Weibo has posted an alleged image of DxOMark’s updated rankings that seems to have awarding the forthcoming Huawei Mate 20 Pro a whopping score of 116.

The image posted shows the Mate 20 Pro in first place on the site’s rankings and the P20 Pro filling the second spot.

Interestingly, Google’s forthcoming Pixel 3 smartphone is also listed and comes in at third place with a figure of 107.

SmartPrix first noticed the posting by the Weibo user with over 1million followers.

The image showcasing the new rankings has not been officially verified and DxOMark’s current site does not currently list the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

However, the forthcoming flagship from the Chinese giant has been highly rumoured to boast a similar triple-lens setup but is expected to improve upon it.

But alleged images of the phone in the wild have shown the Android flagship with the sensors and flash placed in a square shape rather than in a vertical line as present in the current P20 Pro.

Huawei is expected to show off its Mate 20 Pro hardware in London on October 16.

The hardware has been rumoured to tout a gargantuan 6.9-inch display and a fingerprint sensor underneath its screen.

And Huawei’s new Kirin 980 processor is set to feature inside the hardware that should be blisteringly quick.

With the Chinese giant set to unveil its newest hardware on October 16, fans looking forward to the Mate 20 Pro will not have to wait long to see what it has in store.

Express.co.uk will be covering Huawei’s showcase live.
