Honor 20 Pro, night mode

The Honor 20 Pro, the latest flagship smartphone of Huawei's Honor sub-brand, is scheduled to launch next week but Zhao Ming, President of Honor smartphone, has already given us a preview of the device's camera capability, revealing some sample photos captured on the phone.

Two images were captured with the upcoming device's new night mode and the results looks pretty promising, with similar exposure and dynamic range to what we've seen on the Huawei P30 Pro. The EXIF-data also reveals that the 20 Pro will be the first smartphone to come with an ultra-fast F1.4 aperture.

The third shows a capture from the 20 Pro's 12MP ultra-wide angle camera.

Additional information provided by the manufacturer confirms a quad-camera setup including a time-of-flight depth sensor, a 48MP primary sensor that will likely output 12MP images for improved noise levels and dynamic range. In combination with the fast aperture and night mode that could make the upcoming a Honor an interesting option for smartphone night photography.

Other specs that are already known include a 6.26" IPS display with FullHD+ resolution, a Kirin 980 chipset and 6GB of RAM. Looking at the sample shots and specs the Honor 20 Pro could potentially be the 2019 smartphone of choice for those mobile photographers who don't want to spend Huawei P30 Pro or iPhone XS Max money. We'll know more next week.
