Phone Announcement – New Huawei P20 and accessories rundown
Huawei has now announced their new P20 flagship mobile phone and we run through the main details, including specification, below as well as a rundown on some of the accessories you can purchase to keep your phone safe.
The body and screen
The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro have metal frames and glass backs, as well as small bezels and a notch at the top of the screen, like a lot of new phones. The notch on the P20 is one of the smallest around, and Huawei have utilised the space at the top to display a lot of notifications.
The P20 and P20 pro will launch in a choice of four colours: Twilight (a gradient of colours from pink, purple and blue), Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, Graphite Black
The real highlight from Huawei’s announcement today was the camera upgrades.
The Huawei P20 will come with a dual-lens camera, while the P20 Pro will get an impressive triple-lens camera (Lens 1 = 8mp 3x telephoto lens. Lens 2= 40MP main RGB lens. Lens 3- 20mp Mono lens). Light was a big talking point with much more light coming through the camera, to produce great photos in low light.
The Huawei P20 has high light sensitivity, with an ISO of 102400, that’s on par with a Canon 5D Mark IV professional camera. As a reference, the Samsung Galaxy S9+ has 6400 and the iPhone X, 6400!
Huawei P20, P20 Lite and P20 Pro mobile phone accessories
Eiger 3D GLASS
Eiger 3D GLASS Tempered Glass is curved to match the exact shape of the Huawei P20, P20 Lite and P20 Pro’s curved screen, which ensures a seamless fit. The screen protector will provide 100% screen coverage, with edge to edge protection.
The edges of 3D GLASS feature an anti-dust layer which prevents the edges of the tempered glass screen protector from lifting, resolving a common issue with other curved edge screen protectors on the market.
Eiger 3D GLASS Screen Protectors are 9 times harder than standard glass and feature a 0.33mm ultra-thin, scratch resistant, rounded edge design with high definition clarity.
The materials used are premium Japanese tempered glass and glue, ensuring the best protection and adhesion
Redneck TPU Flexi Case
The Redneck TPU Flexi case is perfect for showcasing the Huawei P20, P20 Lite or P20 Pro, while maintaining its slim design. With intelligent impact protection, the phone will be shielded from dust, dirt, scratches and accidental drops, whilst the ultra-flexible, soft TPU design makes the case easy to attach and remove. All of this is achieved inside of a 0.6mm thin mobile phone case.
Redneck Prima Wallet Folio
The Redneck Prima Wallet Folio Case has been designed for those on the go. Featuring 3 credit card slots and a cash pocket, it is the perfect everyday phone accessory. The built-in stand makes this phone case great for watching videos, web browsing and viewing photos all hands-free. The folio design includes an integrated shell for added protection and the front cover (with its magnetic clasp) will keep the Huawei P20, P20 Lite or P20 Pro screen safe from damage.
