Huawei unveils Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, takes aim at Apple, Samsung

Mate 20 Pro price

Huawei earlier confirmed that the new Mate 20 series will house its latest flagship chipset, Kirin 980 SoC.

The Huawei Mate 20 is shod with a 6.53-inch RGBW LCD FHD+ display with a resolution of 2244x1080.

It's a 7.2-inch device so while the Mate 20 Pro features a 6.39-inch FullView display, the Mate 20 X takes this to another level with a whopping 18.7:9 ratio 7.2-inch 2,240 x 1,080 OLED display that Huawei says can be comfortably used with a single hand.

Let's check out the pricing details and specifications of the Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Huawei Mate 20 X.

Huawei provided travel and lodging for certain media attending the launch of the Mate 20 Pro, including MrMobile. Both smartphones will be available in Singapore on Oct 27. However, the stylus is separately positioned and tethered, leading us to infer that the Mate 20 won't have a special stylus-equipped version. Buyers will be able to choose between Emerald Green, Midnight Blue, Black, Pink Gold, and Twilight color options.

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. It will be powered by the company's own Kirin 980 processor, the phone will run Android 9 Pie out of the box, and is expected to support Huawei's GPU Turbo 2.0 technology. The Mate 20 packs a 4,000 mAh battery while the Mate 20 Pro has a 4,200 mAh battery.

The smartphones are expected to sport a metal and glass unibody design and are also said to come with triple rear camera setup powered by Leica.

Both handsets feature triple-lens cameras but the one on the Mate 20 Pro is better.

Other odds and ends include an IP53 dust and water resistance rating, 40MP cameras, and a fingerprint sensor on the back.

A few days ago, the price of the Huawei Mate 20 series seemed to have surfaced online. It gets a primary 40-megapixel primary wide angle lens with f/1.8 aperture, a 20-megapixel ultra wide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a third 8-megapixel 3X telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. The cameras boast a number of interesting features such as Super HDR, AR features, macro photography and low-light photography. Up front, the phones have a 24-megapixel front camera for selfies, video calling, and it also includes 3D depth sensing feature.

The Mate 20 is backed by a 4,000mAh battery while the Mate 20 Pro comes with a 4,200mAh battery.

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. The smartphones also support up to 15W Qi-based wireless charging.

That gaming aspect is a big focus for the phone, with Huawei also selling a new gaming accessory to go alongside it and even comparing it side by side with the Nintendo Switch onstage.
