Both the P20 and P20 Pro comes in four colours each Graphite Blac, Midnight Blue, Pink Gold and my favourite Twilight.

Both the P20 and P20 Pro have a 24MP front camera for your ultimate selfie.

The P20 Pro – the Leica triple camera. The 8MP telephoto + 40MP RGB + 20MP monochrome combo will be a huge talking point as the world’s first tri-sensor combo very soon, but the standard P20’s 20MP monochrome and the 12MP RGB dual camera also benefit from a number of improvements over the P10 and the Mate 10 series’.

As well as an all-new glass design, the P20/P20 Pro also sports a FullView display with those love-them-or-hate-them iPhone X-style notches. For the larger device, Huawei has opted for a 6.1-inch OLED panel with a 2240 x 1080p resolution and an 18.7:9 aspect ratio.
