1. A multistage power amplifier comprising:
a first amplification circuit configured to receive a first bias current;
a second amplification circuit configured to receive a second bias current;
an envelope detection circuit configured to output a direct current (DC) detection voltage based on an envelope of an input radio frequency (RF) signal; and
a bias compensation circuit configured to compensate for the first bias current based on the second bias current in a high-power driving region in response to the DC detection voltage.
