Huawei launches Mate 20 Pro that can wirelessly charge other phones

Huawei announces the Mate 20 X with 7.2-inch display and M Pen stylus

We've spent some time getting to know the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, so check out our first impressions of Huawei's new flagship smartphone.

It was only this March that Huawei released the Porsche Design Mate 10 RS, but the mobile company has already raced to the finish line with a successor: the Mate 20 RS.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is available to order with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for €1,049 (approx CAD $1,575). According to WinFuture, the phone may also have the 3D facial unlocking feature just like iPhone X.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro has a Leica triple camera setup, consisting of a wide-angle module (40mp, f/1.8 lens), telephoto module (8mp, f/2.4 lens), and a new ultra-wide-angle module (20mp, 16mm f/2.2 lens).

Going hands-on with the Mate 20 Pro, The Verge found the device to be quite impressive, starting with its HDR-enabled 2960 x 1440 OLED display. There's no 3.5mm headphone jack on either model, and the phones have IP68 (Mate 20 Pro), and IP53 (Mate 20) ratings. In terms of connectivity, the handset offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port. On stage, Huawei basically showed the Mate 20 X next to a Nintendo Switch for a size comparison.

The 6.39-inch OLED screen equipped Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS (8GB + 256GB configuration) will have a MSRP of EUR1695, and the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS (8GB + 512GB configuration) will have a MSRP of EUR2095 from 16th November, 2018. The Mate 20 features a 6.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels and has an 18:7:9 aspect ratio. The company also added wireless quick charging feature in Mate 20 Pro.

The phones come with Huawei's new own-brand microchips, the Kirin 980, which it claimed offers 226pc improved performance. With the Mate 20 Pro, consumers will now be getting a 4200mAh battery which should be the biggest battery we've seen on a high end flagship device. It also comes with a 24 MP sensor in the front for selfies. Digital Camera World will be at the London reveal of the device and will be among the first in the world to get hands-on with the camera technology.

The Mate 20 Pro powered by Octa-Core CPU under the hood which has three tier design. Coupled with the adaptive dual-tone flash, the camera system forms a square grid at the back of the phone.

If battery is what you need, the phone includes a 40W supercharge battery. The Mate 20, which is the largest device out of the two, has a 6.5-inch display and a notch that is much smaller.

The Mate 20 Pro is available in Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, Emerald Green, Twilight and Black.

The Huawei Mate 20 X is also available in just one memory variant with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The main camera will have a 40-megapixel lens, while its ultra-wide-angle will be 20-megapixels.

There's also a Mate 20 X. It's a souped up version of the Mate 20 with a larger 5000mAh battery and a new cooling system.
