The triple camera as a turning point

Beyond the technical section of the device, the reason for being in front of the Honor 20 Lite is its camera, or rather, its cameras. The Honor 20S has a triple camera system with 48, 8 and 2 megapixel sensors and focal aperture f / 1.8 and f / 2.4 . While the second sensor consists of a wide angle lens, the third limits its functions to improving the depth of photographs in portrait mode.
