Huawei P20 Pro has received an OTA update that not only carries the bug fixes and improvements but also the August Android Security patch. The build number of the update is CLT-L29 126.96.36.199 (C432). Another notable thing is the ability to enable and disable of the Master AI on the camera.
The AI camera analyzes the image coming through the camera lenses and changes the settings to produce the desired result. This switching ability has reportedly been added after the complaints of the users saying the AI camera produces the oversaturated colors on their pictures. So, this feature might have been enabled after the feedbacks of the users.
To give a quick recap of the camera specs of the Huawei P20 Pro, the device includes a triple-camera setup with a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor, and an 8MP telephoto sensor. The AI capabilities are built into the homegrown Kirin 970 SoC that drives the device.
Adding a custom option for the users to enable or disable AI in the camera looks odd considering Huawei focuses heavily on the AI capabilities of its phones. Huawei hasn’t yet announced why this important trait of the camera has been changed to an option. But, we are hoping to get an official announcement on this crucial matter soon.
The update weighs 525MB and it's an OTA update so will take some to reach. You can manually check as well, by heading over to the Settings and choosing the Check for Updates under the About Phone.
