Huawei launches new flagship phones in bid to keep No. 2 spot

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Huawei Huawei Mate 20 Pro price in India Huawei Mate 20 Pro release date in India Huawei Mate 20 Pro launch Huawei Mate 20 Pro specifications Huawei Mate 20 Pro features Huawei Mate 20 Pro release date Huawei Mate 20 Pro camera

The Huawei Mate 20X is set for October 26 in Europe and will cost around $1040 United States dollars for the 6GB RAM variant coupled with 128GB storage.

Just like the P20 Pro, the Mate 20 Pro also doesn't come with a card slot. Launching in November, the device will sell for €1,695 and €2,095 depending on RAM configuration.

"These devices are the "mate" of consumers - accompanying and empowering them to enjoy a richer, more fulfilled life with their higher intelligence, unparalleled battery life and powerful camera performance", Richard Yu Chengdong, chief executive of Huawei's consumer business group, said in a statement after the launch of the new smartphones.

Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu showcases the Huawei Mate 20 Series at the ExCel convention center in London on October 16, 2018.

Unlike the Apple and Samsung flagships, however, the Mate 20 has Leica-engineered triple cameras on the back and an in- display fingerprint sensor on the Pro model.

Speaking of design, the Huawei Mate 20X features a waterdrop notch approach, giving room to the screen to stretch out to all four corners of the display.

The Mate 20 will cost $998, while the Mate 20 Pro is more expensive at $1,348.

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.

Other specs include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Mate 20 Pro, on the other hand, features a 6.39-inch curved OLED QHD+ display.

They include a new ultra-wide angle lens, as well as a telephoto lens and a macro that shoots objects as close as 2.5 centimeters (1 inch). The Pro has a 40-megapixel wide angle lens, a 20-megapixel ultra wide angle lens and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with up to 3 times zoom. It comes with support for the "world's first wireless reverse charging" technology on a smartphone, which means it can wirelessly charge.

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. The phone has been launched in Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver colour options.

And to keep that promise, the Mate 20 X features Huawei Supercool – the companys name for a vapor chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreader. The smartphone flaunts a huge 7.2-inch AMOLED display with support for HDR10 for a more immersive visual experience.
