Mobile Phones: Huawei Mate 20 Series smartphones launched

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

The new handset will likely not make its way to Canada, but we've reached out to Huawei Canada either way.

The Mate 20 Pro is smaller in size than the Mate 20. Yes, it's that huge.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 X supports an ultra-large 5000mAh battery, and is equipped with a revolutionary HUAWEI super cool system that uses a combination of graphene film and vapor chamber to deliver outstanding cooling performance.

The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS also supports wireless charging and is resistant to water and dust.

Huawei this week also released the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro in London on Tuesday.

And now for the main question: how much is it?

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.




Of course, what you're mainly paying for is the elegant Porsche Design, which adds a leather back panel sliced through the middle with a glass racing strip that holds the triple rear camera setup and Porsche Design logo.

Joining the stable with the Mate 20 Lite, released earlier this year, Huawei says the new phones are aimed at the new entrepreneur, with each harnessing the power of the company's highly advanced Kirin 980 chipset. It also supports the world's fastest Wi-Fi connection speeds-2GB footage requires only 10 seconds to download. While Huawei Mate 20 Pro mobile comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage onboard, Huawei Mate 20 RS Porsche Design has an 8MP RAM clubbed with 256GB internal storage or a massive 512GB of inbuilt storage.

The Huawei Mate 20 (4GB + 128GB configuration) will have a price of US$926 (RM3,842) and the Huawei Mate 20 (6GB + 128GB configuration) will have a price of US$984 (RM4,082) from Oct 162018. At the front, there is a 25MP selfie camera on this smartphone. Combining a large battery with highly efficient hardware and software, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro can sustain two days worth of work or play without needing to be recharged.

First lets talk about Mate 20, with its a 6.5 inches IPS LCD with 1080×2244 screen resolution. US pricing has not yet been announced for the Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20. And now, so is the Mate 20 Pro.

Huawei has designed these high-end smartphones to compete with the likes of Samsung, Apple and other flagship smartphones. But Huawei's 3D Depth Sensing Camera can be used to animate objects in AR. None of the five top-selling smartwatch brands now uses Wear OS and it is installed on only 10.3% of all smartwatches shipped within the July-to-September period in Western Europe, according to IDC's data.

The Mate20 Pro features a triple-lens system, with a 40-megapixel camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 20-megapixel ultrawide lens that together form a distinctive-looking square on the rear of the phone. This device is able to "scan" and create 3D animated characters in augmented reality.
