According to insiders, the dual system on the back of the Huawei P20 Pro consists of a 40-megapixel module and a second 8-megapixel camera with support for a threefold optical zoom. Using the data of a new high-resolution sensor, the smartphone achieves a five-fold hybrid zoom by software processing. Below is the third 20-megapixel camera with a monochrome sensor for blur effects and improving the dynamic range in the pictures. Also there is an IR-RGB sensor and infrared autofocus. Reported the use of optics with aperture f / 1.6 and f / 2.4, but where exactly - is still unknown.


Presumably, the 40-megapixel sensor is also used in the mode of Light Fusion, which allows to improve the quality of photos in poor lighting due to the merging of neighboring pixels (hello, Nokia Lumia 1020 and Nokia 808 PureView). This function is supported by the front-facing 24-megapixel camera Huawei P20 Pro.
