Huawei Mate 20 Series Announced!

Jullian Robin Sibi 0

Huawei made a big splash in London for their much-awaited event! It launched the Huawei Mate 20 Series! This event really tells me that Huawei is really the next Samsung. Good thing that Huawei has its own unique smartphone signature and they’re upping the ante with the Mate 20 series! There are actually FOUR PHONES! Yes, four phones in the series. Here they are!

Without much delay, I’m here to show you what each phone has to offer!

The Huawei Mate 20 has a big and bright 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a “teardrop” shaped notch. It has the signature triple camera that made Huawei so popular. The cameras are a significant step down from the P20 Pro though. It has a 16MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens (f/2.2), a 12MP Wide Angle Lens (f/1.8), and an 8MP Telephoto lens (up to 2X optical zoom, f/2.4).

It comes in five colors: Emerald Green, Midnight Blue, Pink Gold, Black, and Twilight. Although the Twilight on the Mate 20 is similar to the Morpho Aurora color of the P20 Pro that Huawei announced at IFA 2018.

Here are the rest of the specs:

  • 6.53-inch FHD+ TFT LCD display (IPS) with 2244×1080 resolution
  • Kirin 980 processor
  • 4 / 6 GB RAM (depending on market; Philippines gets the 6GB version)
  • 128GB internal storage
  • NM Card support up to 256GB (Huawei’s new memory card)
  • 24MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9
  • Dual-frequency GPS
  • 4000 mAh battery
  • 20W charging with Huawei SuperCharge

As of this writing, the Mate 20 is available in Europe for EUR799 (4GB) and EUR849 (6GB). According to GadgetMatch, it’s already available in Singapore for just SGD 998 for the 6GB configuration. We have yet to find out when the Philippines gets it.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro carries the camera prowess that the P20 Pro started earlier this year! It carries the similar triple camera setup of the P20 Pro but with one key difference: the 20MP Ultra Wide Angle lens! Now it has the best of what most smartphones have and what LG has in the G7 and the V40!

It unfortunately has a bigger notch! Good thing it’s for 3D Face Unlock and for having a 3D front camera. You can even scan objects to have a 3D model of it in the Mate 20 Pro! I’m sure it’s a gimmick at best, but people will try that feature.

It also has the coolest feature in a smartphone right now: Reverse Wireless Charging! With the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, you can use it as a power bank for other phones including the latest iPhones!!! It looked insane when I saw videos of this feature.

Here are the rest of the specs of the Mate 20 Pro:

  • 6.39-inch 2K OLED display with 3120×1440 resolution
  • Kirin 980 processor
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 128GB internal storage
  • NM Card support up to 256GB (Huawei’s new memory card)
  • Leica Triple Camera system: 40MP Wide Angle lens, 20MP Ultra Wide Angle lens, 8MP Telephoto lens (3X optical zoom)
  • 24MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture with 3D Depth Sensing
  • Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9
  • 4200 mAh battery
  • 40W charging with Huawei SuperCharge

It’s available in the same 5 colors as the Huawei Mate 20: Emerald Green, Midnight Blue, Pink Gold, Black, and Twilight. It costs EUR1049 in Europe and it’s also available there right now! It’s also in Singapore for just SGD 1,348 as of this writing! Pricing and availability in the Philippines have yet to be announced.

Now we’ve reached the luxury part of the Mate 20 series! Porsche Design has partnered with Huawei yet again for another Mate smartphone: the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS! It’s basically a Mate 20 Pro with a leather-glass hybrid backing. It has 8GB RAM and 256 or 512 GB of storage!

To be honest, this is really overkill but some people actually buy this. The 8GB + 256GB configuration costs EUR1695 and the 8GB + 512GB configuration costs EUR2095! That certainly is the definition of overkill.

Huawei Mate 20 X

As if those three phones weren’t enough, we got a One More Thing from Huawei! It’s the Huawei Mate 20 X and its standout feature is THAT HUGE SCREEN!!! It has a 7.2-inch display with the same notch as the regular Mate 20. Videos and games look way more immersive! It has a mix of the features of the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro.

Here are the specs:

  • 7.2-inch FHD+ OLED display (2244×1080 resolution)
  • Kirin 980 processor
  • 6GB RAM
  • 128GB internal storage
  • Support of NM Card up to 256GB
  • Leica Triple Camera system: 40MP Wide Angle lens, 20MP Ultra Wide Angle lens, 8MP Telephoto lens (3X optical zoom)
  • 24MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9
  • 5000 mAh battery

The Huawei Mate 20 X comes in two colors: Phantom Silver and Midnight Blue. You can get this phone for EUR899 on October 26 in Europe. It is unknown as to if the Philippines will get this phone.
