  • Huawei unveils Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, takes aim at Apple, Samsung

Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are on sale now in five colors - Black, Twilight, Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, and Emerald Green - with the Mate 20 going for €799 (4 GB of RAM) or €849 (6 GB of RAM), and the Mate 20 Pro retailing for €1,049. The Mate 20 Pro on another hand comes with only one memory and storage options which is 6GB and 128GB respectively for European Union 1049 (~RM 5044). The local price of the Mate 20 RS is now unavailable, but Huawei says it costs $1,695 euros (S$2,696) for the 256GB model and $2,095 euros (S$3,332) for the 512GB model. Launching in November, the device will sell for €1,695 and €2,095 depending on RAM configuration.

The Mate 20 Pro's 4,200 mAh battery is the largest ever on a Huawei device.

The Mate 20 X looks like an oversized Mate 20.

Mate P20 models take advantage of artificial intelligence features built into Huawei's own Kirin chipsets.

DUP 'will vote against government budget if Brexit red lines breached'
The two parties have spoken out against borders being placed between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as well as in the Irish Sea.

Let's check out the pricing details and specifications of the Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and Huawei Mate 20 X.

Gartner analyst Roberta Cozza said that in a highly commoditized smartphone market of look-alike phones, Huawei is managing to differentiate itself with camera and personalization features. Its 86.90% screen-to-body ratio is smaller than the Mate 20's.

Like the Mate 20, it also has triple rear cameras but in a different configuration- a 40MP f/1.8 wide-angle sensor, a 20MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle sensor and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto sensor with OIS. Huawei Mate 20 is also said to support fast and wireless charging. 128GB is the only storage option on the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The Mate 20 Pro, meanwhile, has a 40-megapixel wide angle, 20-megapixel super wide angle, and 8-megapixel telephoto lenses. There is a 24-megapixel RGB selfie camera at the front, with support for 3D facial unlocking.

A new neat feature in Mate 20 Pro is its two-way wireless charging feature that allows it to act like a charging pack for devices that support the Qi wireless charging standard. It comes with support for the "world's first wireless reverse charging" technology on a smartphone, which means it can wirelessly charge. Under the hood, you'll find the Kirin 980 processor with a vapor chamber and graphene film plus a 5,000 mAh battery that's rated to last up to 23 hours for video playback or 6.67 hours of gaming. It features a 7.2-inch OLED display with 1080 x 2,244 resolution and waterdrop notch.
