  • Huawei: great smartphone photography is not about ‘the number of lenses’

    It's not about how many cameras you can shove into a smartphone's body, but rather how you use them, Huawei's Gene Jiao told Gearburn in an interview. "It's not about the number of lenses," Jiao stressed, this from a company that brought the world a three-camera smartphone, and specifically reviving the megapixel war with a 40MP sensor in one lens. "You have one camera and to focus it's very easy. You have two cameras, it's not easy to focus," Jiao notes. To solve this, in addition to exploring new camera technologies, Huawei has also dedicated an entire laboratory to its smartphone photography...

  • Here’s how much you’ll pay for the Huawei P20 Pro on contract

    After South Africa's collective tech ears pricked yesterday at the news of the Huawei P20 Pro's fairly modest prepaid pricing, retailer Cellucity is at it again this time divulging the phone's contract pricing. According to an email sent to Gearburn, Cellucity will offer all three P20 devices -- that is, the Huawei P20 Lite (feature image), the Huawei P20, and the Huawei P20 Pro -- on Vodacom contracts. The damage is as follows: Huawei P20 Lite -- from R299 per month on a uChoose Flexi 120 contract Huawei P20 -- from R579 per month on a Smart S contract Huawei P20...

  • Huawei P20 Pro will retail for R15799 in South Africa, says Cellucity

    While Huawei South Africa is still being coy regarding pricing for the newly launched P20 series, local smartphone retailer Cellucity spilled the beans for them last night. And those beans are priced extremely competitively. Read more: Huawei P20 Pro revives the megapixel war with four cameras In a tweet, the retailer detailed that the Huawei P20 Lite will retail for R5499 (including free wireless earphones). But more notable is the P20 and P20 Pro's pricing. The standard Huawei P20 -- with two cameras and a 5.8-inch LCD screen -- will retail for R11499. That slots it in the midst of previous generation flagships,...

  • Just launched: Huawei P20 Pro revives the megapixel war with four cameras

    A protracted rumour mill ground to a halt today after Huawei finally unveiled its badly-kept-secret P20 Pro. It's the company's new flagship replacing February 2017's Huawei P10 series, and features a complete aesthetic rethink. However, it's one that'll probably be familiar at this point. The Huawei P20 Pro now sports a 6.1-inch AMOLED screen with 2244x1080 pixels, and a 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Why 18.5:9, you ask? It has a notch. The awkward black bulge at the phone's crest itself hosts a 24MP f/2.0 selfie camera with autofocus on the right, a clump of sensors in the middle, and a cutesy rounded speaker for...

  • Huawei P20: all major rumours before tomorrow’s big reveal

    The Huawei P20 reveal event is set to take place tomorrow (27 March), with expectations high that we'll see some interesting camera tech on show. But what will be revealed at the event? What kind of features will be in tow? Will there be headphone jacks? Here are a few major nuggets you should know... Three models on offer According to regular leaker Evan Blass, the Paris event will see three models on offer at the very least. There's the P20 Lite, standard P20 and large P20 Pro. We've also seen reports of a 512GB Huawei phone, but it's unclear whether this is a...

  • Honor 2018 flagship coming, to be based on Huawei P20?

    Huawei's Honor sub-brand saw a stealthy launch in South Africa earlier this month, offering the mid-range Honor 9 Lite and Honor 7X. The brand is also known for taking flagship Huawei phones and releasing them under the Honor name, albeit with a different design and a few other tweaks. For example, we saw the Honor 9 in June 2017, essentially being a Huawei P10 in terms of chipset and camera setup. Back in 2016 we also saw the Honor 8, being a Huawei P9 with a few changes. Now, an Honor representative has confirmed to Gearburn that the sub-brand will be offering...

  • Huawei P20 Pro has 40MP, 20MP, 8MP rear cameras – report

    By now, it's a given that the Huawei P20 Pro will be packing a triple camera on the back -- just when you got used to the idea of dual camera smartphones. Now, WinFuture journalist Roland Quandt has revealed the exact nature of these cameras. And the report claims 40MP, 20MP and 8MP rear shooters. The 40MP camera means it'll go toe to toe with the Nokia Lumia 1020 on paper, although the Lumia's 41MP camera actually topped out at 38MP. According to Quandt, the 40MP and 8MP cameras are in one housing, while the 20MP camera is in a separate housing....

  • Huawei P20 range leaked: triple camera on one model

Now, serial leaker Evan Blass has delivered the goods, publishing renders for all of the devices. More colors. pic.twitter.com/i5LoHmDcpi — Evan Blass (@evleaks) March 7, 2018 And it seems like the Huawei P20 Plus/Pro will be the only model to pack three cameras, as per recent rumours and Huawei's own teases. Meanwhile, both the P20 Lite and standard P20 pack two cameras. Another interesting detail is that all three phones sport the divisive notch...

  • Huawei P20 is official name, triple camera confirmed

    Huawei may have introduced the Matebook X Pro at its event a day before MWC, but the company also had news regarding its next flagship phone, launching on 27 March. Huawei revealed that the new device would skip the P11 moniker in favour of the P20 name. The phone has been heavily rumoured to feature a triple-camera setup, but what does the company say? Jim Xu, Huawei vice-president of consumer business group, told Gearburn that the phone would indeed pack a triple camera setup. "Three cameras, for sure," Xu answered, but declined to confirm how the three cameras would be used. "...We're bringing a...

  • Huawei press invite suggests triple-camera flagship phone

    Rumours have been floating around since December that Huawei is switching from dual-camera technology to triple cameras. Now, the Chinese company has hinted at this switch... Yep, press invites have gone out for a 27 March event (h/t: Pocket Lint) in Paris, with the invite's background clearly featuring three circles.
