Three weeks after launching the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro in Paris, Huawei has launched the Huawei P20 Lite and P20 Pro in India. The P20 Lite is priced at Rs 19999 and the Huawei P20 Pro will retail for Rs 64999. Both the smartphones will be exclusively available online via Amazon from the 3rd of May.

The Huawei P20 Pro is the flagship smartphone from Huawei that has grabbed a lot of headlines recently. Apart from the striking design of the device, it is also the first-ever smartphone with a triple-camera setup on the back. The Huawei P20 Pro will also be available in the new Twilight colour which, so far, is one of the most interesting colour variants of a smartphone.

The Huawei P20 Pro has a 6.1 inch RGBW full-colour OLED display with a 2244 x 1080 px resolution. This translates into a 19:9 aspect ratio which has its advantages. The Huawei P20 Pro also has an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance.

The Huawei P20 Lite has a smaller 5.84 inch LTPS IPS LCD display with a 2280 x 1080 px resolution. The 19:9 aspect ratio will come in handy when users decide to hide the notch. Once hidden, the device moves to a more conventional 18:9 aspect ratio as the screen real estate on either side of the notch is blackened out.

The Huawei P20 Lite runs on the HiSilicon Kirin 659 Octa-core chipset while the P20 Pro runs on the HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset with NPU (Neural Processing Unit). Huawei has talked a lot about the integration of AI within the Huawei software. A lot of AI features can be found in the camera app like scene detection, portrait lighting etc. The Huawei P20 Lite has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage while the P20 Pro has 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.

On the back of the smartphones is where the two differentiate the most. The Huawei P20 Pro has a 40MP primary sensor, which supports 5x hybrid zoom. There is a secondary 8MP sensor, which offers 3x optical zoom, which also helps to create portrait mode. Similarly, there is a third sensor with 20MP resolution. Unlike the other two sensors, this is a monochrome sensor which helps to capture contrast and sharpness. Another mindboggling feature of this camera setup is a maximum ISO of 102,400.

The Huawei P20 Lite has a 16MP RGB sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. In fact, this dual camera setup is similar to the one found on the Honor 7X. The Huawei P20 Lite and P20 Pro have a 24MP front-facing camera with 3D Portrait Lighting effect. This is very similar to the Portrait Lighting effect found on the iPhone X.

At a price of Rs 19999, the Huawei P20 Lite is a solid offering. The Huawei P20 Pro, on the other hand, will go toe-to-toe with the likes of Galaxy S9+ and iPhone 8 Plus. The registrations for both the smartphones have started and the smartphones will go on sale on the 3rd of May via Amazon.
