The Huawei P20 series is taking the tech world by storm, creating a massive wave of acclaim primarily on the strength of its new cameras. In fact, the Huawei P20’s incredible imaging capability lets even the most casual snappers shoot like professionals – it’s that good.
The P20 and P20 Pro comes equipped with Huawei's patented Kirin 970 chip, FullView HD Displays, a 12MP+20MP dual camera (P20) and a 40MP+20MP+8MP triple camera system (P20 Pro) for the best-in-class mobile photography experience. The little brother, the Huawei P20 Lite comes with the capable Kirin 659, a thin-bezeled FullView Display and a 16MP+2MPdual camera system like the flagships but at a more budget-friendly price point.
Launch Event Emphasizes Capturing Beauty
To celebrate the Huawei P20’s arrival on local shores, Huawei Philippines organized an official launch on April 28 featuring industry partners and brand ambassador Pia Wurtzbach to talk about how the P20 series’ powerful cameras can change the pro photography landscape.
Beautiful and stunning as ever, Ms. Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach gushed over the Huawei P20’s flawless shooting capabilities, among the device’s other outstanding features. “It’s easy to look beautiful and photogenic using the P20; It’s just amazing how effortless it is to take great pictures with the camera, like you never have to worry about any bad shots at all,” Pia tells the host. “When I look at what the P20 can produce I’m just like, wow I can’t believe it was shot on a phone!” she adds.
Elevating the P20 Series with Intelligent Photography
Clement Wong, Director of Global Product Marketing for the Huawei Consumer Business Group also highlighted how the P20’s strengths surpass its competition in his on-stage product discussion. “Our engineering team leverages the massive potential of A.I. to create a user experience unlike any other in the market right now. A.I. features enhance many aspects of the device like performance, battery life, and of course, the camera,” Mr. Wong says. “Creating a smarter camera was one of the most important goals we had when developing the P20, and I’m confident to say we achieved that. You can point the P20 at anything like food, pets, or night scenery, and it would always give you the best image.”
Tech + Fashion Equals Amazing
Just to prove how revolutionary the P20’s camera has become, local media outfits like Metro Magazine and the Manila Bulletin collaborated with Huawei on several photography-centric projects. At the launch event, Metro EIC Geolette Esguerra talked about how they pulled off their anniversary cover shoot with Pia Wurtzbach using a Huawei P20 Pro, no less. “For fashion magazines, the cover is our most important and most enduring image, which is why we give it so much importance. We often go all-out in production and execution to get it right. This shoot with Pia stands out because of how we did it. Cover shoots often involve a lot of photography equipment to get the right shot and the right lighting. This time, all we needed was the Huawei P20 Pro—which fits in my pocket,” Ms. Esguerra says.
A Unique Opportunity
On the other hand, Art Samaniego, Jr., Tech News and Business Tech Editor for the Manila Bulletin discussed the newspaper’s partnership with Huawei on the Earth + Lens photo exhibit held last April 22nd. The event showcased the exquisite beauty of Mother Nature through the lens of professional cameras and the flagship Huawei P20 and P20 Pro. “The Earth + Lens event was a unique opportunity to show how the gap between professional lenses and those on the P20 Pro has virtually disappeared – considering the excellent results produced by the phone,” Mr. Samaniego says. “When you factor in the P20 Pro’s low-light performance, it even exceeds what most pro cameras are capable of.”
