The Huawei Mate 20 Pro comes with a triple rear camera setup and a single front camera. However, there are more hardware and software camera features on the device.

In fact, the front camera is not really alone. Beside it is a 3D Depth Sensing Camera which is used for secure face recognition and 3D scanning of various objects.


40MP Triple Leica Cameras at the Back

The triple rear cameras of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is reminiscent of the similar setup on the Huawei P20 Pro. But there are several differences in the individual cameras and the arrangement.

All three cameras now reside in a ‘matrix’ located at the center of the phone’s back along with a large LED flash.

The main rear camera is 40 Megapixels with a wide-angle field of view and a f/1.8 aperture. The second one is an ultra-wide 20 Megapixel camera with a f/2.2 aperture. Lastly, an 8 Megapixel camera handles distant photography with up to 3x optical zoom.


Ultra-wide Angle Camera Instead of Black and White

One major improvement in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s cameras is the switch to an ultra-wide angle secondary camera instead of the black and white secondary camera on the Huawei P20 Pro.

While a BW image sensor results in brighter and crisper photos, the 20 Megapixel ultra-wide camera can capture a bigger scene even in tight environments.

This camera can also be used to capture macro shots in as close as 2.5cm from the subject.


Improved A.I. Enhancements

Since the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is powered by the Krin 980 chipset with dual NPUs, the A.I. enhancements on its camera get several improvements.

It can now identify more scenes and apply preset image enhancements. I can even identify the scenes that will look better with the ultra-wide angle camera and which to it automatically.

There’s also a new video feature where the subject can be in color while the background is black and white.


3D Scanning Using the Front Camera

One highlight feature for the front cameras of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the 3D Scanning Feature. It can turn a real-life object such as stuff toys into a 3D object that can be made to walk, jump or even do kung fu!

It’s another fun way of using the cameras in conjunction with Artificial Intelligence just like the animated emojis of the P20 series.
