Huawei unveils Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, takes aim at Apple, Samsung

The Mate 20 Pro can reverse wireless charge other phones, too: put an iPhone X on the Pro's back and it will begin topping up.

The Mate 20 is priced at €799 (Rs 68,000 approximately) for 4GB RAM with 128GB storage variant, and €849 (Rs 72,100 approximately) for 6GB RAM with 128GB storage.

The new premium phone line-up from the world's biggest telecom equipment maker includes four models, the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, with a 7.2 inch display screen, and a Porsche Design limited edition phone.

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. The Mate 20 comes with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, whereas the Mate 20 Pro comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Huawei Mate 20 event will kick off on 16 October 2018 at 11:30pm AEDT.

The Mate 20 Pro will also ship with a 24-megapixel front-facing camera that will allow for face unlocking functionality, WinFuture added.

The Mate 20 Pro will be available in five colors - Classic Black, Twilight, Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, and Emerald Green.

The smaller Mate 20 has a "teardrop" style cutout. The Mate 20 Pro has a nano-memory card slot like the Mate 20, making them both the first phones to support the new memory card size.

The Mate 20 Pro has a 4,200mAh battery, a little bump from that of its predecessor. The phone is said to have a 3.5mm audio jack at the top, and a glass back cover.

But the star of the show is really the Kirin 980 chip set, with dual-NPUs inside that Huawei says can process images and analyse scenes in real time faster than any phone.

Huawei also introduced the Huawei Mate 20 X at its launch event, which is physically larger than the Mate 20 (with most of the same specs) and features an enormous 5,000mAh battery. The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are powered by Android 9 Pie with several variations made in the visual department. Lastly, the most expensive of the lot is Porsche Design Mate 20 RS which is priced at €1,695 (Rs 144,000 approximately) 8GB RAM with 256GB storage, and €2,095 (Rs 178,100 approximately) for 8GB RAM with 512GB storage. 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.
