  • Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro

Huawei Mate 20 X is priced at Euro 899 and will be available in only one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage from October 26 in select European markets.

The phone features a 6.39-inch Quad HD+ OLED display with a screen resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, DCI-P3 HDR and 820 nits brightness.

The series also includes a gaming device - Mate 20 X - which features a huge 7.2-inch flat OLED screen with 1,080 x 2,244px resolution and a teardrop notch. The phone's triple camera comprises a wide-angle lens, an ultra-wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. The smartphone also includes fast charging at 40W, fast wireless charging at 15W, and reverse wireless charging where the phone acts like a power bank to wirelessly charge other smartphones that support wireless charging. It looks like, Huawei Mate 20 Pro will take over Google Pixel 3 XL to claim the title of the best camera smartphone of 2018. Unlike the Mate 20, the Mate 20 Pro features an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

Huawei have gone all-out to give the Mate 20 Pro an iconic design, with symmetry and simplicity at the forefront.

Powered by the same flagship Kirin 980 SoC as the Mate 20, the Mate 20 Pro also runs EMUI 9.0 on top of Android 9.0 Pie. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro announced today feature that weird camera arrangement we've seen leaked over the past couple of weeks.

And if you're into it, there's also a leather-clad Porsche-branded variant of the Mate 20, called the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS.

Raptors’ second game is their first big game of the season
We wasn't a unit out there defensively tonight. "Us moving the ball the way we do will open up things for him and Kyle (Lowry )". To re-up here for four more years and get to wear the (number) 22 in the city of Cleveland, I can't put it into words.

We don't know how many configurations of each phone that Huawei is bringing to the market as well. It features the Kirin 980 chipset from Huawei; 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage space.

For security, the Mate 20 Pro comes with In-display fingerprint sensor and an IR camera for Face Unlock.

The new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro both house dual neural processing units (NPU) for the first time, which use artificial intelligence to split the processing tasks of the device between them.

The Mate 20 is powered by a large 5,000mAh battery. This has reportedly been made possible because Mate 20 will not feature laser sensors for facial recognition, like its better endowed sibling. The main camera will have a 40-megapixel lens, while its ultra-wide-angle will be 20-megapixels.

Huawei Watch GT was detailed by the tech giant alongside the Mate 20 Pro at its recent London keynote and boasts a ton of useful functions. The Mate 20 starts at €799 ($927), and goes up to €849 ($985) if you want more RAM.

Through AI self-learning algorithms, an integrated and granular resource allocation system, and a highly optimised Android environment, EMUI 9 delivers an "evergreen" experience remaining smooth even through extended use.
