After two years of hard work with Leica cooperation, Huawei made a great progress in camera quality. The Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro is a big evidence of how great Huawei has become when it comes to phone design and camera quality. The Mate 10 scored an incredible 97 points in DxOMark, second only to Google Pixel 2, and Apple iPhone X in overall camera quality. In the still photo, it surpasses Google Pixel 2.
Now, if the notorious smartphone leaker Evan Blass is to be believed Huawei P20 camera capabilities will an extra mile. It should be noted that Leica is not the only reason for the great success of Huawei with the smartphone cameras. The man behind the amazing Nokia cameras including the legendary Nokia Lumia 1020 Eero Salmelin is now the director of Huawei’s Imaging and Video technology. He is responsible for the great camera performance of the Huawei P10, P10 Plus and now Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

He also posted the leaked posters which you can see below.
In addition, the front camera pixel camera is also very large containing to 24 million pixels also tuned by Leica.
In addition to the huge pixel boost, @eleleaks said the P20 will include a “Pro Night Mode,” capturing 100% of the light even without a tripod. At the same time, AI function will also appear in the camera function, in order to obtain better imaging results.
I am already a fan of the Mate 10 Pro camera. I hope Huawei has the ability to improve the camera. Check out our first impressions of the Huawei P20 Pro.
