Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20 X flagship smartphones have been unveiled by Huawei at an event held in London, UK.
The Mate 20 pro comes in five colors. Black, pink gold, Twilight which we initially saw on the p20 pro and two new colors roll green and midnight blue. The two new color options have a unique hyper optical pattern which looks really slick and isn’t gonna attract fingerprints as much as plain glass packs.
Mate 20 Pro has a 6.39-inch curved OLED HDR display with a 19.5:9 ratio. with a quad HD+ resolution and minimal bezels. It’s bright sharp vibrant and although there’s a notch you can easily hide this within the software settings.
Inside this notch, there is the earpiece which is also one of the two stereo speakers, a 24-megapixel front-facing camera with an F 2.0 aperture and lots of sensors for the 3d face unlock.
The Mate 20 Pro and mate 20 got a very different looking camera setup at the rear. It’s a four-point array arrangement with a flash and triple Leica cameras. So, unlike previous times there is no monochrome sensor and all three cameras have an individual purpose. There’s a primary 40-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8
megapixel telephoto camera which has an f/2.4 aperture with optical image stabilization. This is gonna give you
three times optical zoom and five times hybrid zoom which is a combination of optical and digital zoom. And finally an ultra wide 20-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture.
Performance & Battery
The phone is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 980 7nm SoC with dual AI processor. Coupled with a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There is a 4,200mAh battery under the hood, with support for new 40W Huawei SuperCharge technology.
The new Mate device also has fast wireless charging, like Samsung’s, but Huawei goes a step further by also offering reverse wireless charging to Qi-compatible devices. That’s to say, you can use a Mate 20 Pro to wirelessly charge a Note 9 or an iPhone X / XS.
Along with the Mate 20 pro, Huawei has also launched their regular mate 20. And this has a lot of the same features as the pro but, with a 6.5 3-inch LCD display that has a full HD plus resolution and a small dewdrop notch, a smaller 4000 mAh battery, Ip53 water and dust resistance 4GB of RAM, a back fingerprint scanner supercharged but not as fast as the 40 watt supercharged on the pro and a similar triple Leica camera setup but with lower megapixels for the primary(12MP) and ultra-wide camera(16MP).
