With the launch of the Huawei P20 Pro, the Chinese smartphone maker revealed its quite different approach to the smartphone camera. It released the flagship with a triple camera setup as compared to the currently common dual cameras. It further packed the device with a whopping 40-megapixel camera (f/1.8 aperture) along with 20-megapixel (f/1.6 aperture) and 8-megapixel (f/2.4 aperture) Leica optics sensors to complete the setup. It further features phase detection and laser autofocus, 3x optical zoom, and dual-tone dual-LED flash.
If we have to focus specifically on the megapixel count, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the only smartphone which comes close to taking on the P20 Pro. It was released five years ago with a 41-megapixel Carl Zeiss optics sensor with f/2.2 aperture, OIS, auto/manual focus, and Xenon and LED flash.

Even though there is a huge time gap between the launch of two phones, it certainly makes up for an interesting smartphone comparison. This is the reason the same has been shared by the GSMArena team but it is a blind camera test to make things even more interesting for readers. It means the camera samples shown below come with no EXIF data and no smartphone labeling. It is up to you to guess which shot has been clicked using which smartphone.
So what do you think about the sample shots? Do you think you can correctly guess which of the shots are from Huawei P20 Pro and which ones are from the Lumia 1020? Share your best guesses with us using the comments section below.
