Huawei's Mate 20 Pro is here, sporting three separate cameras on the back and another on the front. 

We've already been able to take this super phone around (an unusually sunny) London to see what its camera array can achieve. 

First up, a lovely view of East London from the CNET balcony, shot using the standard wide-angle camera mode. The phone uses the same AI scene recognition seen on the P20 Pro, and in this case detected a blue sky, so boosted the blues a touch to give more of a pop to the scene.

One of the Mate 20 Pro's three cameras has a super wide-angle lens, letting you get much more into the picture. It worked really well here.

The different zoom lengths of the the triple cameras really gives you four different views. Here, the super wide-angle...

And finally up close with a 5x digital crop. The crop uses information from the huge 40-megapixel sensor to maintain as much detail as possible.

I really enjoyed shooting with the super wide view. It was able to achieve a good exposure here, with rich colours and plenty of detail in the shadows.

Using the super wide, you can also focus up close on objects, but still keep loads of the background in shot. Here, I was able to focus only an inch or two away from this sculpture, and be able to capture the road leading away behind it.

...but by using the 5x zoom I'm able to get much closer on the leaf, but not capture as much of the background.

The AI scene recognition immediately recognised this as "food".

Whether the AI has helped to take a better picture is difficult to really judge, but it's bright, with strong, natural colours.

The light wasn't brilliant inside the food hall, but the Mate 20 Pro's camera has kept this shot pin-sharp.

The phone recognised this as "Autumn Leaves", although I don't know how it changed the scene once it figured that out. Personally I'd have liked to see an autumn shot with a warmer white balance to enhance the rich reds of the leaves.

The 24-megapixel front-facing camera does a decent job of snapping an embarrassing selfie when you're in good light.

I'm much less impressed here. The bright window behind me has overexposed the shot.

While in this shot, the phone has used a slower shutter speed to let in enough light, resulting in quite a blurry image.

The phone uses face-mapping software, much like the iPhone X, to try and separate you from the background to allow for different lighting effects. It really hasn't worked here. Thumbs down.
