Huawei unveils iPhone-challenging Mate 20 smartphones

Adjust Comment Print

The big feature on the Mate 20 is the triple camera setup. The Mate 20 Pro is the slightly smaller of the two, but with premium features like an OLED screen and iridescent glass back.

We are now just a few hours away from the official launch. More interestingly, they support nano-memory (NM) cards that are a proprietary Huawei technology. Since the Mate 10 Pro was so impressive, we expect the Mate 20 Pro won't be a disappointment. The Mate 20X sports a 7.2-inch display with no notch, for even more screen estate. The display offers up to 820 nits of brightness, DCI-P3 and HDR10 features. It's also rated to IP68 water and dust resistant. The phones sport the first 7nm processor among Android devices, the Kirin 980 that was unveiled at IFA earlier this year. The triple camera setup is a nice option for those who love taking pictures and videos. These sensors are coupled with LED flash and Super HDR. It offers connectivity options of Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS, NFC and USB Type-C. You'll also notice the lack of a fingerprint sensor, which has not been removed, but moved under the display.

The Mate20 Pro comes with fast wireless charging and one curious feature: the ability to charge other devices compatible with the Qi wireless-charging standard, meaning a person with a depleted iPhone XS could place it on the Mate and charge their battery. It has an IP53 rating. There's no word yet on Huawei Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro price in India and release date. This display has a high color saturation.

The Mate 20 Pro continues to use Huawei's EMUI 9.0 software, which further simplifies the user experience.

The new smartphone has three rear cameras, all co-engineered with camera brand Leica: a 16mm 20MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 40MP main lens and an 8MP telephoto lens. Representing a momentous milestone in the history of the HUAWEI Mate Series, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Series embodies the pinnacle of innovation. In addition, it exclusively supports 15W fast wireless charging, coming with the "world's first wireless reverse charging" technology on a smartphone. The battery found here is rated at 5000mAh and the handset comes with Huawei's M Pen. You'll need it: Huawei designed a sophisticated cooling system that uses graphene film and a vapor chamber to keep the device from stuttering during lengthy gaming sessions. As for the Mate 20 X, it is priced at RM 3199 although this particular model will only be available in Malaysia starting from 11 November onwards. The Mate 20 Pro comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage. These include the photography side of things, which has always been one of Huawei's key aims, with the new 16mm ultra-wide-angle lens making the Mate 20 Pro a very versatile device in terms of its focal range. It is priced at Euro 899 (about 377,000 Naira) and will be available in select European markets from October 26.

The smartphone will come in two colours: Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver. They are already available in select European markets. It is worth noticing that the Red on Black model will only be available in China.
