Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro Sure Look Cool, But US Support Will...

On Tuesday, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei released its new flagship phone series, the Mate 20.

"Smartphones are an important entrance to the digital world".

According to a report, during the presentation of Huawei's Mate 20 X smartphone, the company's representatives included a comparison with Nintendo Switch, ensuring that their product is better for playing.

Also Id like to mention that both the Lite and the standard version of the phones feature a headphone jack while the most expensive, the pro variants do not.

Furthermore, the efficiency of the components has also been elevated: the CPU is 58 percent more efficient, GPU is 178 percent more efficient, and the NPU is 182 percent more efficient. It has an octa-core tri-cluster configuration consisting of two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores, two high-efficiency Cortex-A76 cores, and two extreme efficiency Cortex-A55 cores.

The fuller-featured Mate 20 Pro, is priced as low as 799 pounds at some United Kingdom retailers and list priced at 849 pounds or 1,049 euros across Europe. It also comes with a graphene film and vapor chamber cooling system.

The series also includes a gaming device - Mate 20 X - which features a huge 7.2-inch flat OLED screen with 1,080 x 2,244px resolution and a teardrop notch.

Few tech journalists were able to use the reverse charging mechanism of Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and experienced the feature first hand.

The broader perspective of the ultra-wide angle lens creates a sense of spaciousness and adds a three dimensional effect to images. The primary sensor comes with a 40-megapixel lens with a f/1.8 aperture along with 20-megapixel ultra-wide angle with f/2.2 aperture and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture. This detail alone makes the Mate 20 Pro the best iPhone XS rival right now. It can also only connect to one of Huawei's optional gamepads (the company's idea of Joy-Cons), meaning players will always have to use touch-screen controls in some capacity.

Huawei's new Kirin 980, the tiny yet powerful on-device chipset for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, strikes a ideal balance between high performance and state-of-the-art power efficiency, delivering 75% improved performance and 58% improved power efficiency.

The Mate 20 Pro is smaller in size than the Mate 20. The Mate 20 X will be released in Blue and Phantom Silver.

As per the Weibo post, the list includes six Huawei and three Honor phones which include Mate 10, Mate 10 Porsche Edition, Mate 10 Pro, Mate RS Porsche Design, Huawei P20, P20 Pro, Honor 10, Honor V10 and Honor Play.
