How the Huawei P20 Pro triple camera workstechnicalstudio | March 27, 2018 | 0 | Mobiles
For years the chase for megapixels in phones has been forgotten. Huawei has just brought it back, though.
The Huawei P20 Pro has 92 megapixels’ worth of camera sensor in its 7.7mm thick frame, including a truly unusual 40-megapixel primary camera on the back.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a 40MP phone (who remembers the 808 Pureview and Lumia 1020?). But following several years of the best phones using 12-megapixel Sony sensors, you have to wonder what Huawei is up to.

How the camera setup works
The Huawei P20 Pro has three cameras on its back with Leica lenses: a 40MP one, a second 20MP camera and a third 8MP sensor.
Its 40MP camera serves several functions. First, it gives Huawei something great to show off. A 40-MP sensor sounds far more advanced than the iPhone X‘s 12MP one.
It also lets the phone take exceptionally detailed photos when there’s enough light to avoid using high sensitivity settings, which introduce noise and reduce detail.
The high-resolution sensor is also used alongside the third of the Huawei P20 Pro’s three rear cameras to take low-loss 5x zoom images.
This third camera has a 3x zoom lens in front of an 8MP sensor.
