Huawei Mate 20 Pro Launch

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Launch

The processor is mated with either 6GB or 4GB of RAM on the Mate 20 and 8GB on the Mate 20 Pro. The Mate 20 Pro will start at €1,049 ($1,217) in Europe, which is cheaper than the iPhone XS in the region but on par with Samsung's Galaxy Note 9.

Mate 20 Pro is the latest Android flagship from Huawei and it will come packing a brand new processor set to offer blisteringly fast performance across Google's Android operating system.

Huawei Mate 20 X is priced at Euro 899 and will be available in only one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage from October 26 in select European markets.

Clearly, it seems this smartphone has been designed with the Mate 20 Pro at its heart. The Mate 20 Pro, on the other hand, features a 6.39-inch curved OLED QHD+ display.

The Leica-backed triple-rear camera setup on the Mate 20 includes a 16-megapixel sensor with ultra wide-angle lens (f/2.2), a 12-megapixel sensor with wide-angle lens (f/2.4) and an 8-megapixel sensor with telephoto lens (f/2.4) for 2X zoom and portrait mode.

The Mate 20 Pro comes with a 40-megapixel standard camera, a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 8-megapixel telephoto camera.




Along with the launch of the two devices, Huawei is expected to announce the price and sale details for the phones. The phone also comes with a "Nano-Memory Card", which occupies the space of a nanoSIM card, with a capacity up to 256GB. The handset is said to be backed by a 4,200 mAh battery with fast charging support. To add salt to the wound, Huawei specifically mentioned that it can charge an iPhone as well. Semantics aside, its a flat OLED panel with 1,080 x 2,244px resolution and a teardrop notch. It can monitor heart rate and sleep real time but doesn't have EKG.

WinFuture claimed a wireless pair of headphones will launch alongside the Mate 20 Pro that will be called the "Huawei Freebuds 2" that will come in a charging case similar to Apple's AirPods.

The Mate 20 X is essentially the Mate 20 on steroids, aimed at gamers.

And to keep that promise, the Mate 20 X features Huawei Supercool – the companys name for a vapor chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreader.

Huawei is also targeting Samsungs Note flagships with the introduction of the M-Pen. The Mate 20 X is priced at 899 euros (about Rs 76,500). As usual, the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS will be incredibly expensive, starting at 1,695 euros (~$1,966). The smartphone is said to offer 6GB/8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
