"The Huawei Mate 20 Series is created to be the best "mate" of consumers, accompanying and empowering them to enjoy a richer, more fulfilled life with their higher intelligence, unparalleled battery lives and powerful camera performance", says Huawei Consumer BG CEO Richard Yu. It offers 86.90% screen to body ratio and also offers around 538 PPI density. There are glass panels on both the front and back side along with an aluminum frame. The Mate 20 Pro is a huge phone.

The Mate 20 phones aren't as generous when it comes to storage options, but they support expandable storage of up to 256GB.

There's also 5x optical zoom on board and there will be support for macro shots. Along with its super-fast Cat.21 LTE, 1.732Gbps Wifi connection, the Mate 20 Pro is capable of streaming 4K live video with no buffering. The phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The company said that the new chipset has 6.9 billion transistors which are 60% more than Kirin 970 chip. The AI system, which was introduced a year ago with Mate 10 series, can now detect over 500 scenes in 19 categories. On the front, the smartphone sports a 24-megapixel selfie camera with a f/2.0 aperture.

The 6.4-inch flagship phone, costing €1,049 (£919), includes a fingerprint sensor built into the screen.

The company say they've a dual-flagship policy, and this phone is evidence of that.


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. The fast charging tech comes with safe certifications from TUV Rheinland.

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.

We still don't know the pricing for the two phones. But perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the battery/charging system is that the device supports two-way wireless charging. The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are coming to Malaysia, and surprisingly, Mate 20 X will be coming as well. In terms of connectivity, the phone supports dual 4G VoLTE and dual band Global Positioning System.

The big feature on the Mate 20 is the triple camera setup. What sets it apart from the Mate 20, however, is the fact that it features a 6.39-inch, 3120×1440-pixel AMOLED screen.

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.

The Chinese manufacturer is looking to challenge Samsung and Apple at the top of the smartphone market, and Huawei regularly claimed its superiority over its rivals as it unveiled its new devices. Inside the smartphone is a 7-nanometer processor Kirin 980 with artificial intelligence to neural computing.

Confirming rumours from the past few weeks, Huawei has introduced the world's first Nano memory card, which is claimed to be 45 percent smaller than the microSD card. The second is a 20-megapixel sensor of f/2.2 aperture with an ultra-wide angle lens. The phone comes with AI features too. The smartphones from this series come with a square-shaped camera setup.

On top of that, 3D Face Unlock can also be used to access a protected area of the smartphone that can contain apps and data. This handset also comes loaded with EMUI 9 which is based on Android 9.0 Pie. There is no wireless charging feature on Huawei Mate 20. It is expected to be made available in four color options, including Twilight, Black, Blue, and Green.

The Mate 20 Pro continues to use Huawei's EMUI 9.0 software, which further simplifies the user experience.
