You can watch the unboxing below. The Huawei P20 smartphone has 4GB of RAM, while the P20 Pro smartphone has 6GB RAM.

Huawei has also dumped the headphone jack, so to compensate for that, they have made two new audio devices which are the Active Noise Cancellation Earphone and wireless Bluetooth FreeBuds earpiece.

Photography is the biggest selling point here - with the P20 equipped with a powerful dual-lens camera while the P20 pro ups the ante by incorporating the world's first triple lens smartphone camera. With the debut of the HUAWEI P20 Series, Huawei makes capturing professional quality images a truly effortless experience for everyone. Which is sadly not true.

Huawei is nothing if not ambitious, and the P20 and P20 Pro are a clear challenge to the best phones in Samsung and Apple's respective stables.

Let's talk about the Huawei P20.

For Malaysian fans, Huawei Malaysia is organising a Huawei P20 roadshow in Sunway Pyramid from April 6 to April 8. But, the hostile U.S. attitude to the Huawei brand - based on some serious cybersecurity allegations - might mean that American consumers will have to go without.

The launch of Huawei's flagship phones come amid the company's fallout with USA retailers, wireless carriers and government officials.

Apple may have just stolen the spotlight in the tablet market but two Chinese companies are hogging the smartphone stage. But that too may be short lived: Best Buy Co., the largest electronics chain in the US, has severed ties with the company and plans to stop selling all of its products in the coming weeks. Amazon.com continues to sell a wide range of Huawei smartphones.

We have a huge pool of smartphones which don't have a 3.5mm headphone-jack, Huawei P20 and P20 Pro are the new entrants. Between the larger lenses, lie a laser transmitter and receiver, for quicker autofocus, as well as a Leica colour temperature sensor. It also includes Leica 3x telephoto lens for long-range photography of up to 5x Hybrid Zoom. Huawei combines the data from both cameras to produce the P20 Pro's photos, a technique the company claims improves low-light performance, blurred background effect (known as bokeh) and black-and-white images. The device packs a Leica triple lens camera that comprises of a 40MP RGP camera, a 20MP monochrome lens, and an 8MP sensor with a telephoto lens. The Huawei P20 also packs a 3400 mAh battery and has support for Super Charge, Huawei's very own version of fast charge. The device is powered by the Kirin 970 processor, an octa-core CPU that features 4x A73 cores and 4x A53 cores. Brand new to Huawei's advanced camera system is 4D predictive focus, predicting moving objects and focusing on them with extreme efficiency to capture minute detail.

The new Huawei P20, Huawei P20 lite and Huawei P20 Pro are available on Vodafone in the UK.

The HUAWEI P20 and HUAWEI P20 Pro feature a 24MP selfie camera** with AI beautification and 3D portrait lighting - the result is lovely selfies with healthy-looking skin tone adjustments, delicately outlined facial details and realistic 3D feature enhancements.

Looking at the benchmark results, the Huawei P20 Pro sits quietly in the lower bottom of the list, which for this objective, includes only devices with the latest chips from Exynos, Qualcomm and HiSilicon.
