Huawei Mate 20 vs Huawei Mate 20 Pro Triple Rear Camera Specs Comparison

Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. has just officially announced their two new flagship level Android phablets for the latter part of 2018.

Huawei Mate 20 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro are both powered by the beastly 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor that currently leads in the industry in terms of benchmark test scores. Aside from that these two models also sport a redesigned Leica Triple Rear Camera module.

What's interesting, though, is that even if Mate20 and Mate20 Pro share an almost identical looking Three-Cam Set-up at the back, the cameras inside the "squircle" plate have different specifications on each smartphone.

Let's take a closer look at them.

Huawei Mate 20 Leica Triple Rear Camera Specs

Primary - 12 MegaPixels, f/1.8 Aperture, 27mm, 1/2.3" Sensor Size, Optical Image Stabilization, Phase Detection AutoFocus/Laser AutoFocus

Ultra-Wide - 16 MegaPixels, f/2.2 Aperture, 17mm

Telephoto - 8 MegaPixels, f/2.4 Aperture, 52mm, 2X Optical Zoom

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Leica Triple Rear Camera Specs

Primary - 40 MegaPixels, f/1.8 Aperture, 27mm, 1/1.7" Sensor Size, Optical Image Stabilization, Phase Detection AutoFocus/Laser AutoFocus, Quad Bayer Sensor

Ultra-Wide - 20 MegaPixels, f/1.6 Aperture, 16mm

Telephoto - 8 MegaPixels, f/2.4 Aperture, 80mm Telephoto, 1/4", 3X Optical Zoom

Studying the technical specifications of their shooters, it is clear that both smartphones have been designed to effectively shoot images with standard, wide-angle, telephoto focal lengths.

However, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is obviously the more powerful cameraphone of the two as its primary cam not only has a notably larger 1/1.7" sensor for better image quality across all lighting conditions but it can also deliver far bigger images at 40 MegaPixels on full resolution. According to the Chinese tech giant, this primary cam is likewise capable of shooting macro shots from a distance of just 2.5 centimeters or 1-inch, which is incredible.

On top of that, higher-res Ultra-Wide angle shooter of Mate20Pro also has a wider f/1.6 aperture for better low light shots and a slightly wider 16mm focal length to capture more of the scene. Finally, its telephoto lens can zoom in 3X without loss of quality compared to just 2X for the Mate20.

Interestingly enough, both Mate20 and Mate20Pro lack 5X Lossless Zoom capability, which is one of the key imaging features of the best-selling Huawei P20 Pro from earlier this year. So I guess if being able to zoom in to a subject from a distance is important to you - especially when shooting wildlife, concert scenes, or architectural images - more than faster internal hardware, then I think you shouldn't ignore the older model.
