Remember when smartphone manufacturers tried to outdo each other in terms of how many megapixels they could cram into the rear camera sensor? Well, Huawei might well have re-ignited this particular arms race with the whopping 40MP RGB sensor that resides on the rear panel of the P20 Pro smartphone that launched today in Paris. All-in-all, the P20 Pro’s rear cameras sport an impressive 68MP when you take all three sensors into consideration, with the front sensor boasting another 24MP. That’s a whole lot of megapixels to shout about, although the regular P20 doesn’t quite have the same level of firepower thanks to it only having 12MP RGB and 20 Monochrome rear camera sensors. Despite this, both phones share a lot of common features, as well as a stunning glass design.
