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

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is said to feature a 6.39-inch OLED display with 1440x3120 pixel resolution.

The Porsche Design variant is essentially the Mate 20 Pro on steroids, aimed at the rich and ostentatious.

Finally WinFuture declared the Mate 20 Pro will cost €999 (£876.38) for a version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Just like the P20 Pro, the Mate 20 Pro also doesn't come with a card slot.

On track to ship 200 million handset to both domestic and global markets this year, Huawei surpassed Apple in global smartphone shipments in the second quarter of this year. Its 86.90% screen-to-body ratio is smaller than the Mate 20's. All of this is contained within a smartphone that'll be released in Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver.

Both smartphones come with 6GB of system memory and 128GB of onboard storage, with up to 256GB of additional storage via expandable storage.

Both smartphones contain Huawei's latest Kirin 980 processor chip, which has two neural processing units compared to one on the previous Kirin chip. The Mate 20 packs a 4,000 mAh battery while the Mate 20 Pro has a 4,200 mAh battery. This makes it the cheaper way to get the 40MP quad Bayer sensor, plus the 3x optical zoom of the 8MP telephoto camera and the 20MP ultra-wide angle camera. The processor integrates better modems that allow it to attain 4.5G speeds of 1.4Gbps and WiFi speeds of 1,733Mbps-both of which are the fastest according to Huawei.

The Mate 20 has a 6.53-inch 2240 x 1080 RGBW DCI-P3 HDR LCD display with a water-drop notch and an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by the same flagship Kirin 980 SoC, The smartphone is the only model in the Huawei Mate 20 series to sport an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The Leica rear camera setup on the Mate 20 Pro is similar to the Huawei P20 Pro. The Mate 20 Pro, meanwhile, has a 40-megapixel wide angle, 20-megapixel super wide angle, and 8-megapixel telephoto lenses. Up front, the phones have a 24-megapixel front camera for selfies, video calling, and it also includes 3D depth sensing feature. Huawei Mate 20 is also said to support fast and wireless charging. But what's really interesting is the support for reverse wireless charging on the Mate 20 Pro. The smartphones also support up to 15W Qi-based wireless charging.

Huawei also introduced the Huawei Mate 20 X at its launch event, which is physically larger than the Mate 20 (with most of the same specs) and features an enormous 5,000mAh battery.
