Huawei P20 Pro: Australian Price And Release Date

We've been speculating about when the Huawei P20 Pro was going to drop in Australia, and what the price might look like. Well, now we know.

Since the Huawei P9, the company has focused strongly on mobile photography in its phones, and thus has continued with the P20 Pro.

The phone has achieved DxOMark’s highest overall scores in its mobile camera category and is injected with an abundance of AI-driven photography features.

We were able to spend a bit of time playing with it in low-light at the Australian launch this week, and it did not disappoint. But more on that when we do the full review.

In the meantime, here's a couple of cheeky pictures I took in Light Graffiti mode.

"We look for inspiration from artists to continuously evolve our approach to design and innovation," said Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer, Huawei Consumer Business Group.

"The Huawei P20 Series builds on the legacy of our collaboration with Leica. With a breakthrough triple camera on the Huawei P20 Pro and powerful artificial intelligence, today’s most vibrant consumers can now capture and share the brilliance of the world around them."

The P20 Pro will come in two colours - a two-tone that Huawei has called Twilight, which has layers optical coatings so the hue changes from blue to purple, as well as a graphite black.

Here are specs:

  • Android Oreo 8.1
  • Kirin 970 processor

  • 128GB storage
  • 6.1-inch 18:9 2240 x 1080 OLED display

  • 8-MP telephoto cam with 3x optical zoom

The RRP for the Huawei P20 Pro will be $1,099 and will be available from May 18 and you'll find it in JB Hi-Hi, Harvey Norman and Mobileciti.
