Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones announced

Huawei announces the Mate 20 X with 7.2-inch display and M Pen stylus

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro Sure Look Cool, But US Support Will...

The Mate 20 Pro has a 6.39-inch OLED display with a screen resolution of 3120 × 1440 pixels and a pixel density of 538 ppi, and it is powered by the Kirin 980 processor developed by Huawei based on the Cortex-A76 CPUs. 88% screen to body ratio which is like so much to look at. Huawei says you can still use the phone's messaging and calling features independently of the projected image, and that your privacy will be protected. While the entire front panel is occupied by the display of the smartphone, the back panel sports all the aesthetic differences. While the company did not reveal if all of these smartphones will make their way to the Indian shores, a teaser on Amazon India page reveals that the Mate 20 Pro will be launched in India soon. This CPU is in both the smartphones, and it rely 6 or 8 GB RAM and 128 G of permanent memory. On the plus side, the Mate 20 does include a 3.5mm headphone jack that isn't included on the Mate 20 Pro. The phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The company emphasized that the device is about gaming.

The phone runs on Google's latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box along with EMUI 9.0 UI running on top. It also has Dual NPU for AI-related tasks, camera enhancements, and system optimization.

Like other recent Huawei smartphones, the Mate 20 Pro has three cameras on the rear.

The triple-camera array on the flagship is comprised of a 40-megapixel main, 20-megapixel ultra-wide and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor. The camera is therefore located in the middle of the device, which is curved on all the corners. It has 24MP RGB front camera for selfies.

CHINESE HARDWARE FIRM Huawei had "one more big thing" to show off at its Mate 20 launch on Tuesday: the 7.2in Mate 20 X. The company said there will be a gamepad that attaches to the device.

It is IP68 rated, so you can dip it in water if that's a concern for you.

The Mate 20 triple-camera packs a 16MP (Ultra Wide Angle 17mm, f/2.2) shooter, a 12MP (Wide angle 27mm, f/1.8) unit, and an 8MP (2x Telephoto 52mm, f/2.4, OIS) lens. Plus for the first time on any phone, there's support for 40W super charging.

This is a real pity as we can certainly see many consumers gravitating towards the new Emerald Green colourway featured in the header image above. Unlike the Mate 10 RS, though, there's no secondary fingerprint sensor on the rear (it seems that was a little extra even for a Huawei x Porsche Design collab).

All Mate 20 phones can project content to a display wirelessly, as long as the screen supports Miracast tech. It also supports a wireless quick charge and a handy new mode called Reverse Charge, which lets you charge another person's phone via your own. Huawei's Mate 20 phones, meanwhile, have nearly entirely dropped the bottom chin.
