This time around Huawei have moved the fingerprint sensor to the front, until now all Huawei fingerprint sensors have been to the rear, including the Honor brand. Both variants will feature impressive twin rear cameras featuring Leica Dual Camera 2.0 technologies, the standard has an f/2.2 whilst the Plus features Pro optics, an f/1.8. These rear cameras are 20MP B&W sensor and 12MP colour sensor with optical image stabilisation. A front facing 8MP camera is also present with Leica technology.
