Huawei Mate 20 Pro : Here is where to purchase the powerful smartphone

On stage, Huawei basically showed the Mate 20 X next to a Nintendo Switch for a size comparison.

The Mate 20 Pro takes that one notch (pun intended) higher with its FullView Display. But perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the battery/charging system is that the device supports two-way wireless charging.

One of the cool evolution in Huawei's Master AI 2.0 image processing with the Mate 20 Pro is the ability to segment a photo into sections and treat each one differently.

The Mate 20 is priced at €799 (4GB) and €849 (6GB). Both versions will have 128 GB of internal storage. If you need more space, you can insert a NanoSD card. The last two have arrived at a price of over $1,000, making them the most expensive devices released by the company. The cameras on the back are upgraded to 40 (normal), 20 (wide), and 8MP (telephoto). "We bring you an extra display, extra power and also extra performance". The Mate 10 already boasted a quick charging feature called SuperCharge and an 18W adapter, so we'll see how much faster the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will charge. Although the listing doesn't say when the phone will start retailing, you can ask to be notified on the website. It also features an In-display fingerprint scanner.

Huawei Malaysia announced the prices for all of their devices on Facebook, including the MateBook X Pro and the MateBook D, Watch GT, and also the TalkBand B5. There is no confirmation whether Huawei will be receiving pre-orders for the Mate 20 Porsche Design.

The Android flagship has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440x3120 and a density of 538 pixels-per-inch.

It's unlikely that the phones will come with these headphones out of the box, so they will probably be sold separately. Just as with the previous model, the Mate 20 phones will offer plenty of AI-enhanced shooting modes, including real-time video editing and special effects.

The device, which features a bigger screen that Google's Nexus 7 tablet, is the largest - and perhaps most unnecessary - mobile device we've seen this year. The earpiece sits at the very top of the Mate 20's body.

The Mate20 phones also feature 3D facial recognition so a user can unlock their phone with their face, similar to Face ID on the iPhone XS and XS Max. Consumers can expect to get their hands on three different variants of Mate 20 in our market starting from 27 October onwards. There are 16-megapixel ultra wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture and 17 mm lens, 12-megapixel wide angle camera sensor with f/1.8 aperture and 27 nm lens and 8-megapixel telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture and 52mm lens. It goes without saying, that the smartphone is equipped with the fast charging feature.

It seems like Huawei doesn't want to launch a flagship without collaborating with Porsche for a limited edition smartphone.

Color choice comes down to Midnight Blue, and Phantom Silver, with EMUI running atop Android 9 Pie.
