The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro – The Flagship of All Flagship Smartphones for 2018

Huawei has just announced the much-awaited Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, the Chinese brand’s flagship line. After the success of their P20 series, everybody was anticipating the new features the Mate 20 would offer.

Huawei Mate 20

The Huawei Mate 20 has a 6.53-inches IPS display with Full HD+ resolution. It provides users with a bigger screen to utilize thanks to a smaller notch called the DewDrop display similar to OPPO’s new R-series phones. Huawei gives its flagship additional style on the back of its phone which we’ve seen in the Nova 3 and P20 series. These are not just colorful, but they are prevent accidental slips and fingerprint magnets. Good job Huawei!

An anticipated feature of the Mate 20 is the Kirin 980, touted as the world’s fastest phone processor. We have yet to see benchmark results if it can really beat the mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 but some early results show it is indeed promising.

As expected, the Mate 20 gets a triple-camera upgrade. A new wide-angle lens replaces the monochrome sensor, a feature users can take advantage of when taking scenic photos.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro, as the name suggests have more features to boast. Some of them may seem gimmicky at first, but I think they will be useful in the long run. What’s noticeable in the Pro is the bigger notch instead of the DewDrop display. The reason for that is it houses a few sensors including a 3D Depth Sensing Camera that can be used for unlocking your phone, apps, and personal data. It also has an In-Screen Fingerprint scanner for additional security.

Another unique feature and probably the first is Mate 20’s reverse wireless charging. Turning it on and placing a phone like an iPhone XS Max or a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on top will charge them. They can even be charged even if they’re 1cm apart. How cool is that?

Other features of the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro include IP68 certification (water, dust, splash resistant), large battery capacity (4,000 mAh for the Mate 20 and 4,200 mAh for the Mate 20 Pro), wireless charging, and fast charging.

The Huawei Mate 20 will retail for EUR 799 (128GB/4GB) and EUR 849 (128GB/6GB) while the Mate 20 Pro will have a price of EUR 1049.
