Huawei Honor 20 Pro Features

Like I stated earlier, the Huawei Honor 20 Pro main camera has the fastest aperture you will find in any phone ever – f/1.4. It guides 60% more light than an f/1.8 aperture towards the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. This camera has both optical and electronic image stabilization.

The Honor 20 Pro comes with an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical and 5x hybrid zoom. This camera also has OIS, which is important for shooting faraway objects or low-light portraits. If you want to capture something up close, you have a dedicated macro camera for that job, the first we have seen on a phone. It has a 2MP sensor and is optimized to capture images from just 4cm away (around 1.5in). Finally, there’s the 16MP ultra wide-angle cam, which has 117° field of view.

Huawei Honor 20 Features

The major difference between the Huawei Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro is the camera. With the Honor 20, you still get the 48MP Sony sensor, but the lens has a slower f/1.8 aperture and no optical stabilization. The 2MP macro and the 16MP ultra wide-angle cameras are still on board, however the tele cam is replaced by a depth sensor.
