Huawei Mate 20 Pro Hands-On: The Phone I Crossed An Ocean For

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro can act like a battery pack and wirelessly charge other devices that support the Qi wireless charging standard

Wood said Huawei's move to match Apple iPhone's characteristic swipe gestures and face unlock features on its Mate 20 Pro could, in theory, make it easier for committed Apple buyers to switch, although he said that was unlikely near term. Well, mostly. Where the Pro model features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the Porsche Design variant bumps that up to 8GB and either 256GB or a whopping 512GB of storage.

The Mate 20 Pro has an in-display fingerprint sensor and Huawei claims it is 30%. faster than that of the previous generation. Launching in November, the device will sell for €1,695 and €2,095 depending on RAM configuration.

All of the Mate 20 models are equipped with large batteries, providing electric charge from 4,000 milliampere hour to 5,000mAh, that are created to power users throughout the day, according to the company.

The Huawei Mate 20 X has what Huawei calls their "most powerful Kirin 980 SoC" inside, so you know it must be good.

Speaking of design, the Huawei Mate 20X features a waterdrop notch approach, giving room to the screen to stretch out to all four corners of the display.

The X has the biggest battery in the Mate 20 family, too, with a 5,000mAh capacity.

The Huawei Mate 20 has a slightly larger 6.53-inch screen compared to the Mate 20 Pro’s 6.39-inch display. It also has a much smaller notch though the Pro version has a more expensive Oled screen

Like the Mate 20, it also has triple rear cameras but in a different configuration- a 40MP f/1.8 wide-angle sensor, a 20MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle sensor and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto sensor with OIS.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro also runs EMUI 9.0 on top of Android 9.0 Pie, and sports a 6.39-inch QHD+ (1440x3120 pixels) curved OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, DCI-P3 HDR, 86.9 percent screen-to-body ratio, and high colour saturation.

The Mate 20 has a 16-megapixel ultra wide angle lens, a 12-megapixel wide angle lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 2 times zoom.

Most impressive, however, is the Pro's reverse wireless charging compatibility, which allows you to send charge to any other phone with wireless charging enabled. But the talking point is the support for SuperCharge 40W fast charging technology. All of this is contained within a smartphone that'll be released in Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver. The smartphones also support up to 15W Qi-based wireless charging.

The Huawei Watch GT features a 1.39-inch OLED display with a resolution of 454x454. The Mate 20 X comes with IP53 water and dust resistance rating, a graphene film and vapour chamber cooling system, and support for the Huawei M-Pen.
