After the grand unveil last month in Paris, Huawei has introduced its flagship P20 series in India. The highlight of the Huawei P20 Pro is the triple camera at the back, a first of sorts, with AI-powered camera features combined with the optics ‘co-engineered’ with lens maker Leica.

In the past, Huawei has mostly ignored the Indian market when it comes to the primary brand and has focused on affordable and mid-range devices under its sub-brand Honor, which has gained quite a traction in recent past.
