Meanwhile, a few other reports have also showcased the venue details of Huawei's launch event that is scheduled to take place in Paris on Tuesday, where it is also expected to unveil a Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS smartphone as well. The event begins at 3 PM CEST, which is around 6:30 PM in India.The world's third-largest smartphone maker will be live streaming the event through its official YouTube channel. There is an iPhone X-like notch on the top, but its smaller in size than the original.

Another camera innovation is predictive focus, whereby the phone will suggest the type of camera settings to switch to depending on what the user is shooting.

The Porsche Design Mate RS gets the same Leica-branded triple-lens camera as found on the P20 Pro, meaning a 40-megapixel RGB sensor, 20-megapixel monochrome sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor with telephoto lens.

Huawei, like every other smartphone manufacturer, has moved to a double-pronged flagship smartphone launch cycle this year, and 2018's offering is the Huawei P20 and the Huawei P20 Pro. Huawei has truly made a splash with the new P20 family and especially with the Pro's new 40MP camera, reviewers will be rushing to test it out against the current top rated phone cameras we have. Camera features are similar to the P20 Pro, but the Mate RS packs Dual SLS speakers with Superlinear sound and Dolby Atmos. Indeed, the P20's IP53 rating means the phone is protected from dust ingress but not submersion in water, only a light spray. It is also the first Huawei smartphone to support the technology. There's still a chin at the bottom of the display, though, even including a fingerprint sensor. And to Huawei, it looks like they believe that.

While the quality of the zoom seems to be represented better in the P20 Pro, the iPhone X definitely handles a tricky lighting situation better. In the latest game of one-upmanship, the P20 Pro has a 40MP RGB color image sensor (f/1.8), a 20MP monochrome sensor (f/1.6) and an 8MP telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom.

The phone is powered by octa-core processor with Kirin 970 chipset and Mali-G72MP12 SPU. The P20 comes in a 4GB/64GB configuration, while the P20 Pro is 6GB/128GB as standard.

Israeli warplanes 'hit Hamas positions' in Gaza overnight
Gaza was shelled by Israel for a second day on Monday, after shots were fired from the besieged Palestinian enclave. The Israeli military said it was investigating the incident, which it called "serious".

The insane part about the new phones are the cameras and Huawei didn't skimp on the megapixels.

The Huawei P20 sports an extended, bezel-less RGBW display and a Leica dual-lens camera system. The phone itself is crafted from metal and glass, but with a unique look which is available in Black, Midnight Blue, and Pink Gold as well as a very unique Twilight color which will be available in all markets the phone is sold in. Like Samsung's latest Galaxy S9 series smartphones, the P20 Pro can shoot super-slow motion videos.

These three cameras nearly always work together, combining image and light information to produce what Huawei claims to be clearer, brighter photos. Also convincing enough is the battery sizes where the P20 has a 3400mAh unit and the Pro gets the 4000 mAh unit.
