In 2018, Huawei launched the first 40-megapixel camera smartphone in a very long time — the Huawei P20 Pro.
This is particularly noticeable in the shadows.
While the Lumia 1020 presents smooth shadows on the side of the house, the Mate 20 Pro creates a spackled, painted-looking effect that’s not very realistic.
The tree is also captured much more clear on the Mate 20 Pro, while the Lumia presents a very soft image that almost blurs the branches into the sky.
The straight lines on the brickwork appear to suffer from Huawei’s denoise algorithm once again, but the sharpening does pick out some extra dynamic range in the texture detail.
A couple of comparison shots are worth looking at here.
