The Huawei P20 Pro isn’t one of those underwhelming phones that get churned out annually with a negligible upgrade – this device is something special. Super-stylish and packed with features, this flagship smartphone has been created with an OLED screen, a bezel-less design and a glass back, while the octa-core processor and 6GB of RAM mean that it’s fast. Then there are the fantastic front 24MP and rear 40MP cameras that not only shames competitors due to picture quality and speed, they positively destroy their ‘innovative’ reputations too.
The P20 Pro comes equipped with AI (Artificial Intelligence) Image Stabilisation, new Leica optics lenses and a laser sensor for instant focus with motion prediction. There’s a 24MP front camera, so you can take incredible selfies, while the rear camera contains 3 lenses: a 20MP monochrome, a 40MP RGB as well as a 8MP telephoto lens. Along with all the hardware power, you have Huawei’s clever AI which will ensure you take beautiful and vibrant photographs, no matter if you’re in very lowlight conditions, all the while safeguarding that no one is missing from your group shots.
With a large 4,000mAh battery, you won’t be caught short when you’re on the move, while Huawei’s fast charge technology means you won’t be waiting all day to get topped up. There’s a fingerprint sensor on the front of the device to aid your privacy and if you’re caught in a rain shower, there’s no need to worry as this phone is waterproof, with an IP67 rating – which means it can take a quick drop in water and survive, but please don’t go swimming with it.
The Huawei P20 Pro's bright 6.1" OLED Full HD+ screen crams in a super-high resolution of 2240 x 1080 pixels, giving an incredibly smooth and detailed appearance, providing text and videos that are inviting and immersive and won’t vanish when the sun comes out.
Speedy and reliable
The P20 Pro's impressive everyday performance is driven by a Kirin 970, 8-Core processor and a 12-core GPU, so you can expect lag-free swiping, quicker gaming and opening applications, along with a premium browsing experience on the internet. There’s also a dedicated NPU (Neural-Network Processing Unit) which runs independently from standard cloud-based processing, so your privacy is secure.
What is SIM free?
You'll receive an unlocked Huawei P20 Pro, so there’s no requirement to commit to any network, leaving you free to decide which SIM card / network to use in the device. This gives you the opportunity to find the most suitable plan, whether that’s a SIM only deal, contract or pay-as-you-go, throughout the lifetime of the phone.
Top tip: as this mobile phone is supplied SIM free and unlocked, you have access to SIM only deals – these usually offer far better value for money. (Please search: ‘SIM only deals best price’. Add the price of the smartphone above to the cost of a SIM only deal for 12/24 months – now compare this amount to the same smartphone purchased on a contract for 12/24 months, for eye-opening results.) You also have the option to add a foreign SIM card, so you can use this device overseas for less as well.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.p>We can help you get set up
