A couple of weeks ago Huawei launched its flagship Mate 20 Pro, which on paper has features making it the most desirable smartphone. Launched on 16th October this year, the Mate 20 Pro features the brands in-house Kirin 980 chipset. This is built on the 7nm process which makes it seem better in efficiency and performance compared to the very best Qualcomm Snapdragon’s 845 chipset, found in flagships like Oneplus 6, Oneplus 6t, LG G7 to name a few.
It has a distinct square design which engulfs its 3 rear cameras and a flash. The cameras being a 40MP(f1.8) wide angled, 20(f2.2) MP ultra wide angled and an 8MP(f2.4) telephoto camera. Huawei is offering AIS(artificial image stabilization) coupled with these. Regarding software, it comes with Android 9 out of the box, on top of which you find the brands own EMUI 9.0. Other than the processor, Huawei has also introduced an NM card for storage purposes. The NM card is an alternative to the popular microSD card found these days on most portable devices. The NM card is Huawei’s proprietary and has same form factor as a nano sim, so you may use it in the sim slot of Mate 20 Pro. The downside of this is that there are only a few Huawei devices that support this storage. Yet this might not be a concern after knowing that the device comes in two storage options, 128 GB and 256GB, coupled with 6GB and 8GB ram respectively.
The device sports a large 6.39 inch OLED display with a 2K+ resolution and also .includes a notch. To make this device run long, it comes bundled with a massive 4200mAh battery which can be charged using wired (max 40W) and wireless(15W) chargers. The company boasts that your device can charge up to 70% in just 30 minutes. An interesting feature is the device’s capability to reverse charge wirelessly. Basically, you can use the Mate 20 Pro as a portable wireless charger as well. The phone provides protection being an IP68 rated phone, which means you get the splash, water, and dust resistance. Sadly like other OEM’s Huawei isn’t providing us with a 3.5mm headphone jack, yet you may find a type-c to 3.5 mm adapter. The list doesn’t end here, like a few recently launched phones, the Mate 20 Pro is also coupled with an on-screen fingerprint reader.
Huawei starts the sale of this phone on 27th November on Amazon.in. Do check this link to buy one. Also on the 27th, we will find that Huawei will launch the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS, which is expected to be the premium version of the Mate 20 Pro.
