While the P20 sports a dual camera setup, the Pro sports a triple camera setup. This is a first on a smartphone or almost any device for that matter.

On the front, the P20 has a 5.8 inch notched RGBW screen while the Pro has a slightly bigger 6.1 inch OLED panel.Both devices have the same resolution at 2,240 x 1,080 pixels.
