Huawei Mate 20 Series smartphones launched - Mobile Phones

Huawei’s 7.2in Mate 20 X takes aim at the Note 9 and er Nintendo Switch

88% screen to body ratio which is like so much to look at. There are glass panels on both the front and back side along with an aluminum frame.

As predicted, the Mate 20 is priced at RM2,799 whereas the Mate 20 Pro is priced at RM3,599. There's an octa-core Kirin 980 CPU - an industry first 7nm chip - and 6GB of RAM inside, with storage options reaching 128GB. Not only is this better for group shots, but Huawei says that it will also be better for macro shots, and you'll be able to focus on an object from just 2.5cm away.

As mentioned in the intro, all these devices are based around the capabilities of the Huawei Kirin 980 SoC.

Mr Yu said that the new Mate 20 was faster, more powerful and would charge faster than any of its rivals.

In terms of software, the handset runs on Huawei's own EMUI 9 interface over the top of Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. It also happens to be the world's first chipset with a dual Neural Processing Unit (NPU) design. It also helps memory optimization for smooth performance.

In the camera department, the Huawei Mate 20 sports a Leica triple rear camera setup, which consist of a primary 16-megapixel ultra wide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a secondary 12-megapixel wide angle sensor with f/1.8 aperture, and a third 8-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture.

It will also be available on bill pay with Vodafone from €199 while prepay will be available from €899, both of which will also come with a free Huawei Watch GT and wireless charging Dock worth. For the front, there is a 24-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling.

The device, which features a bigger screen that Google's Nexus 7 tablet, is the largest - and perhaps most unnecessary - mobile device we've seen this year. The leaked images show a smaller, waterdrop-style notch and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

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

We've reached a point where most smartphones offer pretty much the same experience regardless of the different manufacturers, ideas, or designs.

And if you're wondering if this battery fast charges, yes it does.

The Mate 20 Pro can even be used as a wireless charger, with owners of other compatible wireless charging smartphones able to hold their device against the back of the Mate 20 Pro to charge their own battery. Huawei's SuperCharge lets you power up to 70 percent in just 30 minutes. But perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the battery/charging system is that the device supports two-way wireless charging.

In addition to all its new features, the Mate 20 Pro has another massive advantage over the P20 that will surely make it incredibly alluring for Android fans. In terms of connectivity, the phone supports dual 4G VoLTE and dual band Global Positioning System.

The handset comes in two colours: "Midnight Blue" and "Phantom Silver".

The 7.2-inch OLED screen equipped Huawei Mate 20 X (6GB + 128GB configuration) will have a MSRP of EUR899 from 26th October, 2018.

The Mate20 Pro presents ultimate AI features for anyone to want, and Huawei has claimed that the Artificial Intelligence mechanisms in the device can increase system optimization.
