Right off the bat, the Mate 20 X sounds amazing/ridiculous thanks to its 7.2-inch "Ultra Large Display". Huawei insisted on stage that its Mate 20 phones are the best phones out there when it comes to processor and RAM speed, Wi-Fi downloads, Global Positioning System accuracy, camera performance, and battery performance.
Huawei will launch the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro at an event it is holding in London.
The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones, which were officially launched on Oct 16 (Tuesday) in London, feature three cameras on their backs and a host of camera-centric artificial intelligence tricks.
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.
As far as specifications are concerned, the Huawei Mate 20 flaunts a 6.53-inch display, while the Mate 20 Pro flaunts a 6.39-inch display.
Clearly, it seems this smartphone has been designed with the Mate 20 Pro at its heart.
One of the key differences between the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro is the display and its different approaches.
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. Meanwhile, the Mate 20 features a 6.5-inch LCD screen with 2244 x 1080 resolution, 18.7:9 aspect ratio and 88.08% screen-to-body ratio. The phone is tipped to come with 6GB of RAM and a 4,200mAh battery. The Mate 20 Pro supports 40W fast wired charging (up to 70% charge in 30 minutes) while the Mate 20 supports 22W fast wired charging, and both models support 15W fast wireless charging.
However, unlike its predecessor, the Mate 20 Pro placed its modules in the centre of its rear glass panel.
Security is provided by a 3D face scanner and an in-display fingerprint reader.
The phones sport the first 7nm processor among Android devices, the Kirin 980 that was unveiled at IFA earlier this year. On the other hand, the Huawei Mate 20X is said to come with a stylus and is expected to compete against the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Note 9 smartphone. Well, mostly. Where the Pro model features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the Porsche Design variant bumps that up to 8GB and either 256GB or a whopping 512GB of storage.
