Design and Display

The Huawei P20 Pro is a good looking device made of Corning Gorilla Glass on both sides. It is also quite attractive with an array of different colour options to choose from with aluminium covering at the sides. There is no audio jack, which means you could only use a USB Type-C to audio jack converter cable that comes along with the phone. Here the notch is also quite reduced compared the that of the Apple flagship. The smartphone is dust and waterproof up to 1m for 30mins.

The smartphone has a crisp AMOLED display with an impressive resolution.You have a 1080 X 2244 pixels display which is because of the 18.7:9 aspect ratio measuring up to 6.1-inch. There is also an option to turn off the display at the sides of the notch to make it somewhat less noticeable.

Battery and Camera

Down to the battery capacity featured here, the Huawei P20 Pro impresses with a fairly large 4, 000mAh battery.This a quite generous offering more than what you have in the likes of other flagships. Ideally, you have fast charge feature but wireless charging is absent.

The triple camera at the back gives you 3X optical zoom thanks to the 8MP camera while the others include a 40MP primary camera and a 20MP monochrome camera all at the rear side. Like recent high-end smartphones, the smartphone has an AI enhancement included. At the front, the smartphone features a 24MP front camera which takes quite high-resolution pictures.

Hardware and Software

Huawei features a fairly powerful hardware, although not up to what the Samsung flagships and LG V30S ThinQ smartphones. You will get an Octa-core Hisilicon Kirin 970 CPU with a Mali-G72 MP12 GPU in charge of graphics on the device.

In addition to the above, the smartphone also comes with a 6GB RAM accompanied by a  128GB internal storage space and like the Huawei P20 doesn’t support memory card expansion. There is also EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo better suited for adapting to the irregularities of the notch.

Pricing and Availability

The smartphone is currently available for sale but not in all locations yet. However, the smartphone costs a little above 405, 000 naira depending on your location and the deal.
