Mate 20 Pro: Huawei throws down the gauntlet

But what's most exciting from that launch is obviously the Mate 20 Pro. It's also IP68-rated. There's a larger notch in play here, thanks to the inclusion of a facial recognition system that the Mate 20 does not offer.

Like most Android flagships this year, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro has an iPhone-like notch at the top of its screen, but on this occasion, the notch serves the same goal as on the iPhone. The Mate 20 X comes with IP53 water and dust resistance rating, a graphene film and vapour chamber cooling system, and support for the Huawei M-Pen.

The Mate 20 Pro takes that one notch (pun intended) higher with its FullView Display. The three cameras consist of a 12MP Wide Angle lens, 16MP Ultra Wide Angle lens, and 8MP Telephoto lens. Though Huawei has yet to release a list of supported devices, Huawei representatives said my battery-poor iPhone could actually charge just by going back-to-back with a Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

And now for the main question: how much is it? A 4200mAh battery keeps this handset juiced up and it comes with a 40WHuawei SuperCharge charger.

Furthermore, the rear camera setup includes a 40-megapixel primary camera with a f/1.8 aperture a 20-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens with a f/2.2 aperture and an 8-megapixel telephoto zoom lens with a f/2.2 aperture. Inside the smartphone is a 7-nanometer processor Kirin 980 with artificial intelligence to neural computing.

In terms of security, a hot topic right now, the Mate 20 pro has a dedicated 3D depth sensing camera for its face unlock feature. You'll also notice the lack of a fingerprint sensor, which has not been removed, but moved under the display.

The front-facing webcam on both devices is a 24MP (f/2.0, FF) unit for all your selfie needs.

Connectivity options on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port.

The device runs EMUI 9.0 on top of Android 9.0 Pie.

It is backed by an 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of internal storage with an expandable option of 256GB via microSD card slot.

In matters battery, Huawei has for a while now been packing huge batteries. Its mammoth screen boasts an 1080p resolution, comes constructed from OLED and features an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. Yes, there's also a Mate 20 Lite and a P20 Lite for the mid-ranger aficionados among you, in case you were wondering. While this restricts the choice and prevents you from buying the relatively less expensive Mate 20, we can hope that the other variants will be available in the country soon.

The Huawei Mate 20 X will launch on October 26.
