It’s not until next week when Huawei will officially unveil its latest P20 smartphones, but more and more leaks surrounding these phones keep surfacing. Now, some reports are saying that the P20 Pro will come with a massive 40MP camera sensor; it’s also said to be capable of recording videos at 960fps.
That’s right: it appears Huawei will be able to match the Samsung Galaxy S9 phones’ Super Slow Mo mode. According to XDA Developers, which went through alleged firmware files of the P20 and P20 Pro, both of these phones will be able to record at 960fps.
However, this slow motion recording is only limited to 720p, much like the Galaxy S9 devices. In contrast, the Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact can record at a similar frame rate at 1080p.
Aside from that, another report from WinFuture claims that one of the P20 Pro’s three rear cameras will come with a whopping 40MP camera sensor. Of course, it remains to be seen if this is done through software trick or if it’s a true 40MP sensor.
WinFuture’s report also mentioned that the P20 Pro will come with a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP telephoto lens. Thanks to these three cameras, the Pro can supposedly do 5x hybrid zoom too.
While these information are quite interesting, we won’t know for sure if the Huawei P20 phones will feature them until Huawei itself officially introduce the devices next week on 27 March. If these features are indeed legitimate, the P20 Pro certainly has an interesting camera system.
