Now, NanoSD appears to be a brand-new proprietary storage solution by Huawei, which means that expanding on storage may be more expensive than normal.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 18 ― Huawei unveiled its new Mate 20 flagship smartphone range in London on October 16, including a Porsche Design collector's edition model.

The Mate 20 Pro comes with stereo speakers but there is no grille on the bottom edge. But we had no idea what this gaming phone would have to offer. If you play on the Huawei Mate 20 X for an hour, the device won't go above 37.4 degrees Celsius. Coupled with the adaptive dual-tone flash, the camera system forms a square grid at the back of the phone. The area where you place your finger glows, giving this function a stylish look. Since the Mate 10 Pro was so impressive, we expect the Mate 20 Pro won't be a disappointment. There are glass panels on both the front and back side along with an aluminum frame. Whether or not you like the notch, this trend is here to stay. The Mate 20 Pro is a killer phone and leaves a little to be desired. Yes, you read that right, the Mate 20 Pro can charge any Qi compatible device wirelessly by posing as a wireless mat of sorts. It flaunts a huge, high-resolution 6.39-inch notched display that contains 3D depth-sensing facial unlock system. The information indicates that when it comes to the presentation of a smartphone, the expectation was to be compared with products with which it competes, such as Apple and Samsung, however, the Chinese company preferred to compare the device with the Nintendo hybrid console.

The handset comes with a fingerprint sensor on the rear unlike the in-display fingerprint sensor found on the Mate 20 Pro. Triple camera setup of 40MP quad Bayer sensor, plus the 3x optical zoom of the 8MP telephoto camera and the 20MP ultra-wide angle camera. On the front, the smartphone sports a 24-megapixel selfie camera with a f/2.0 aperture. Interestingly the ultra-wide-angle can focus as close as 2.5cms, handy for macro shooting. The Huawei Mate 20 Pro announced today is accompanied by the Mate 20, and joins the P20 Pro and P20 for the 2018 line-up.

In terms of price, the standard Mate 20 model which comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage will be made available for RM 2799 while the Mate 20 Pro can be obtained for RM 3599. Inside the smartphone is a 7-nanometer processor Kirin 980 with artificial intelligence to neural computing. Moreover, it is also the first chipset to be designed with the 7nm architecture. The technology is now found in just three smartphones.

Up until now, we have heard about the fast and wireless charging concept, but reverse charging is something absolutely new.

While it might seem that Huawei has managed to make a device that fixes many drawbacks of the Switch, the cost for the Mate 20 X is approximately over a $1000.

Other notable features include a whopping 4,000mAh battery that'll get you through the day, along with 22.5W Huawei SuperCharge support.
