Part of the reason the Huawei Mate 20 X is so huge is that there's a 5,000mAh battery tucked inside it. The Mate 20 Pro is the company's competitor to the iPhone XS Max from Apple Inc. The mate 20 Lite features a 6.3 inches 1080 x 2340 pixels AMOLED display.
And the device has a new camera array on its front that allows for face unlocking, too. In addition to that, it has a lot of futuristic features seen on a smartphone for the first time. And if that wasn't enough, there's also a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display for those that prefer that route for authentication. There's a very likely similar story happening with the Galaxy S10, assuming you're going for the largest version, comparable to the Mate 20 Pro.
Rumor has it that Nano-Memory transferred data at 90MB per second. But it also acts as a bottom speaker.
Good news is that the Mate 20 same as the Pro variant is powered by the latest Kirin 980 chip. However, does the phone deserve the tag of being the most powerful smartphone to launch till date? Then again, the Mate 20 X is optimized for resource-intensive gaming sessions.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro also boasts Huawei's Wireless Quick Charge.
On board is a 4,200mAh battery, which is 200mAh larger than last year's model. Compactly engineered, every device from the 6.39-inch Huawei Mate 20 Pro to the 7.2-inch Huawei Mate 20 X can be comfortably used with a single hand. Additionally, the smartphone also supports 15W wireless charging (again, the fastest phone to charge wirelessly). In a phone demo, Huawei focused on the Mate 20's new image-recognition and photo-editing features. It does retain a 3.5mm audio jack though something which is missing on the Mate 20 Pro. You can also create spotlight videos that are centered around the star of your video. Mobile payments are also supported. As you can see, they sport triple-lens configurations like the spring's P20 Pro, and they go up to 40 megapixels.
Huawei's new premium phone line-up has four models available around the world, expect in the United States where sales are effectively banned over whispered national security concerns. The cards use a special SIM tray that can house two SIM cards, or a SIM card and an NM card. This is Huawei's own PC mode for the smartphone, meant to rival Samsung's DeX accessory system.
If battery is what you need, the phone includes a 40W supercharge battery.
The Mate 20 Pro is the world's first phone to support Cat.
