The 12MP sensor on the back is an RGB sensor while the 2MP one is a Monochrome one. Combining them both, Huawei has incorporated a wide aperture mode which will help you take DSLR like background blurred images while the subject alone in focus. Similar features are seen in expensive devices like Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Huawei Mate 9 etc.
