Huawei P20 Pro Unboxing: we have here the Huawei P20 Pro for an unboxing, one of the first here on youtube so a thumbs up for that would be appreciated.
Now let’s get straight to it. Inside the box of course we get the Huawei P20 Pro,
but as well as that we get a SIM card ejector tool with some paperwork, the power brick which does support, Huawei’s Supercharge, a USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable, some USB Type-C earphones, and yes, that’s because the P20 Pro, unfortunately, does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack, and because of that you also get a USB Type-C to 3.5mm headphone jack converter.
Right, now let’s get to the device itself, and we’ll remove this plastic and first things first I gotta say I absolutely love this color.
For the build, we’ve got metal frames with curved glass on the front and back and the P20 Pro is available in four colors:
Black, Midnight Blue, Pink Gold, and Twilight, which is the version that I’ve got here, and it looks absolutely beautiful.
It’s got a gradient color finish, which makes it look very unique, but it is definitely gonna attract lots of fingerprints so I’d recommend picking up a clear case so you can really show off this color but protect it at the same time.
The device is also IP67 water and dust-resistant.
On the right-hand side, there’s a power button as well as the volume rocker, on the left-hand side there’s a SIM card tray, on the top we do have an IR blaster.
This is something that we don’t see much of these days, so it’s great that Huawei has included this.
At the bottom, we have two grilles. One of these is a single bottom-firing speaker, the other is a mic, and then we have a single USB Type-C port in the middle and as mentioned earlier on that is because we don’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, and we do have up to 990 kilobits per second Bluetooth transfers, so you can get some high-quality wireless audio with this.
Now let’s move on to the front and one of the cool things is that we do have a pre-applied screen protector which is always nice and this reveals a 6.1″ OLED display which has an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, 2240×1080 pixels so that’s Full HD+ resolution.
Now the bezels are pretty small overall, however, we do have a bit of a chin but that is because we have a front-facing fingerprint scanner. Now personally I do prefer a front-facing fingerprint scanner, so it is quite nice that they’ve managed to include this even though the device has small bezels, And at the top, yes, there’s a notch.
Now the notch is smaller than the iPhone but slightly larger than the Essential Phone.
And it houses a 24MP front-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
Apparently, these are larger than average size pixels which should give you better low-light selfies, and there is also a portrait mode from the front-facing camera which seems to work pretty well.
Now I know how most people including myself feel about the notch, but it’s notch like you can’t do anything about it!
Okay, okay, anyway, basically you can hide the notch through software.
Now, this is gonna put a black bar behind the notch, so you’ll still be able to see useful information such as your battery indicator as well as the time, so I’m glad that they’ve included this because if you don’t like the notch, then you can hide it.
Now let’s move on to the back and talk about the cameras which are the highlight feature of the P20 Pro.
We’ve got a Leica triple camera setup. There’s one monochrome camera which is 20MP with an F/1.6 aperture, there’s an RGB camera with a whopping 40MP and an F/1.8 aperture and finally, there’s a telephoto camera with 8MP and an F/2.4 aperture with optical image stabilization.
There’s also a color temperature sensor which is gonna help with your white balance and a laser transmitter and receiver for improved autofocus.
Now Huawei is using something called Light Fusion technology which is basically going to combine four pixels into one on that RGB sensor, apparently giving you great low-light images at 10MP. It’s also the biggest sensor on a smartphone, 223% larger compared to the iPhone 10 and 170% larger compared to the S9.
You’ve also got up to 100 and 2400 extended ISO which is the highest on a smartphone, and for comparison, the S9 and the iPhone X can shoot at up to 6400 ISO.
This basically means that you’re gonna be able to take a picture even with one Lux of light.
Now, this all sounds absolutely insane, and I cannot wait to check this out.
You’ve also got 5x Hybrid Zoom which is supposed to be better than anything else out there, as well as a 4 in 1 Hybrid Autofocus system and 4D Predictive Focus which is going to instantly focus based on object motion prediction.
For slow-mo, there is up to 960fps at 720p. Once again this is a burst like we’ve seen on previous devices, and we’ve got 4K at 30fps.
There’s also lots of AI assistance with the camera, one of those being Master Stabilization.
Now Huawei is saying that this is gonna allow you to take long exposures of up to four seconds handheld.
There’s also Huawei AIS video stabilization which is supposed to be more stable than optical and electronic image stabilization.
Now all of these things sound absolutely great, but of course, we’re gonna have to do lots of camera comparisons, so definitely let me know in the comments below which device you’d like me to compare the cameras of the P20 Pro to first.
Now looking at the internals we do have the Kirin 970 processor, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of base storage which is not expandable, an absolutely massive 4000mAh battery, which does support SuperCharge as mentioned earlier, however
there is no wireless charging, unfortunately.
In terms of the software, we’ve got Android 8.1 with EMUI 8.1 on top.
Now I know EMUI is not for everybody, but there are some new AI-assisted features that we’ll be checking out in some future videos, and as well as the P20 Pro today.
There was also the P20 announced, which has a very similar build and design to the P20 Pro but has a 5.8″ LCD display, 4GB of RAM, a 3400mAh battery, a Leica dual camera setup with 12MP RGB and 20MP Monochrome and this will be coming in cheaper compared to the P20 Pro.
Now in terms of pricing and availability, unfortunately, I have not been given this information as yet, but as soon as I have it,
I will be dropping that in the description below.
So there we have it guys, that is the Huawei P20 Pro unboxing and first look. In terms of my first impressions,
I am really really looking forward to checking out those cameras.
I do also really like the build and design, and although we don’t have some features like wireless charging as well as stereo speakers, it definitely looks like a very very promising device overall.
What do you guys think of the Huawei P20 Pro? Definitely drop me a comment below and let me know.
Also, let me know what videos you’d like me to cover with this.
