What does Huawei do for the encore to the highly successful flagship P20 Pro smartphone? You released a more impressive follow-up. Meet Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the best cellphone on the market. Period.
"That's too beautiful!"
That, I remember, spring afternoon at the end of spring this year when technology and lifestyle media from all over the world, including me, gathered at the Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées in Paris to launch what would be the flagship smartphone of global Chinese company Huawei , The P20 Series, "engineered together" with legendary German imaging expert Leica.
Despite the fact that at that time Huawei had strongly taken refuge as the smartphone brand No. 3 around the world, behind only Samsung and Apple, of course because there are no small celebrations given the number of well-established global brands that have to be skipped to get there, the Company was shaken from the negative pressure brought by the US and several other governments that banned their agents use cellphones and devices manufactured by Huawei and other Chinese manufacturers because of suspected security problems.
However, not Richard Yu was defeated, CEO of Huawei, who got on stage at the big Grand Palais, because he rightly talked about what the company fired as a baseless security problem, brandishing the P20 Pro on stage – the marriage of software and hardware in very slick package that draws cheers from the media collected. And even more cheers like Yu, along with other top executives from Leica, Google and more talking about all the strengths of the flagship series. Since the launch of the spring, the P20 Pro has won awards such as the Best Phone of the Year at TechRadar's Choice of Consumer Awards, the Best Smartphones at the European EISA Awards, and the Best Smartphone Photos at the TIPA World Awards, among others.
The ban from the US government continues to run, but Huawei has gone on to not only win many international awards but also overtake Apple as No. smartphone brand. 2 in the world, increased standing is undoubtedly driven by the global success of the P20 Pro.
Then, what should the company do for encore? Last October in London, Huawei revealed only that, launching the flagship trifecta, Mate 20 Series, which was bound to not only win awards and similar awards but also set standards in flagships for every other player in the smartphone landscape. When I was unable to attend the launch in London, I really had to wear my mummy boxing gloves, the Mate 20 Pro, the Twilight edition, not long after that.
"That's too beautiful!" The previous quote, by the way, can easily be applied to the Huawei P20 Pro, which remains one of the most beautiful phones. But it was breathless by a man whose opinion I greatly appreciated, and who was not easily impressed – and that was the first time he had seen the Pro Mate 20 in my hands.
Of course it can be said that Twilight's twilight color was first seen on the P20 Pro – inspired by the spectacle of the atmosphere known as the Aurora Borealis, achieved by Huawei by applying a layer of non-conductive metalizing (NCVM) vacuum coating under the glass again – Not losing any of the power pull it in an iteration at Mate 20 Pro, and the statement will be completely valid. Perfect color enhancements continue to be really interesting parts, deeper colors nowadays, less flashy, less in your face, but all more mysterious and seductive.
However, it is more than just an amazing color solution that makes the Huawei Mate 20 Pro the most attractive smartphone choice on the market, and I will discuss it in time.
With a 6.39-inch screen, you tend to think that the Mate 20 Pro is right about the edge of the phablet, which means that it's big and heavy and can't be handled with one hand. The raw number of the phone dimensions shows the opposite: 6.21 x 2.85 x 0.34 inches, making it smaller, narrower and slimmer than the Samsung Note 9, but with a better screen-to-body ratio (87.9 percent for Mate 20 Pro compared to 83.4 percent for Note 9). With the Mate 20 Pro, Huawei pretty much brings the bezel to the trash can of the smartphone's history, the curved edge screen only leaves a little chin). This dimension allows users to be able to operate a cellphone with one hand, although these days most people have used the two-handed approach to work on their social media and messaging accounts.
Despite the compact frame, the Pro Mate 20 packs some bleeding-containing hardware including the all-new HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor with a newer 7nm architecture that is not only smaller but also said to be more power efficient, and has two nerve processing units (NPU) to handle real-time photo manipulation, direct translation, and other AI-dependent tasks without sweating. No doubt the 10-core Mali-G76 graphics chipset and 6GB RAM (which is what comes with the 128GB storage variant, while the 256GB model packs 8GB of RAM; user storage can be expanded by means of a new type of expandable storage called Nano Memory, which matches the second nano SIM slot) also helps keep it spinning smoothly.
The latest Chip Kirin has been dubbed on technology media as the most powerful processor around for smartphones, citing the solid score they get from all types of benchmark testing they throw at the device. I have not been able to do such benchmarks, but I would say from my ordinary daily use, which includes multitasking with video updates and applications running in the background, plus upwards from 76 tabs opened in Chrome, Mate 20 Pro hasn't shown any lags.
All of the strong hardware has been steamed into the body which is made very beautifully in metal (which will be a frame) and glass (for the front and back), with each curved material firmly fused with the others – not burdened by any form extraordinary with exceptions. from the volume rocker and power button (given a striking red finish) on the right side, the USB Type C port and the dual SIM slot on the bottom, and a very slight camera bump on the back – the Pro Mate 20 feels like a shiny piece of glass glittering in the hand. Of course the choice of glass material (the unspecified version of Gorilla Glass) makes this phone quite a fingerprint magnet, but this is a problem that can be easily handled by a myriad of cases that are now available in physical stores and online retail.
Undoubtedly one of the decisive features of the Mate 20 Pro is the large / not massive 6.39-inch HDR AMOLED display which is one of the most dazzling panels to be seen on the flagship smartphone. Yes, there are notches and larger sizes than those on the Huawei P20 Pro, but that is only because the company has added other sensors for more reliable and safer face activation. (And on the occasion that Face Unlock becomes somewhat fussy, this phone also offers a fingerprint reader on the screen that you won't find on any top-class Apple or Samsung handset, while the Mate 20 Pro is fast-nasty.) This notch problem is something that has been blown by tech media, or maybe I am, but not cool – being on the iPhone X, Huawei P20 Pro and, now, Mate 20 Pro – is a nonissue, like never reducing my experience with the phone quoted here.
With a resolution of 1440 x 3120-pixel, a ratio of 19.5: 9 and 538 ppi (the Note Note Note 9 panel has a density of 516 ppi), the Mate 20 Pro screen produces colors that only appear with brilliance plus the deepest black . Even with a brightness level only at a moderate level, the panel pushes enough eggs to make it easy to read on a sunny day, and of course this makes it a fantastic platform to spoil YouTube, Netflix and your games.
The large and brilliant screen will probably attract everyone's attention, but the Mate 20 Pro's imaging power, which is again engineered by Huawei and Leica, will also be an endless source of pleasure. Huawei has relocated three camera systems from the array on the upper left side of the rear, like the P20 Pro, to hit right in the middle of the Mate 20 Pro. Symmetrically depicted in the slightly raised square, the camera system consists of 40 MP, f / 1.8 wide shooter, 20 MP ultra-wide lens, f / 2.2 and 8 MP, f / 2.4 telephoto snapper, all united to present the best camera experience for users of smartphones. Meanwhile, the selfie camera on the front is 24 MP, an f / 2.0 affair that will delight even the most demanding social-media influencers (or any creature who likes to call themselves) who live inside and outside Instagram and Facebook.
No, the monochrome sensor that helps Huawei P20 Pro become a multi-award imaging animal has been discarded at Mate 20 Pro, but don't worry. As in the P20 Pro, the camera system from the new flagship Huawei also spreads all three sensors to provide data in creating perfect images – and, boys, does this phone produce excellent shots, whether you're shooting using a trifecta rear camera or sensor facing front. And, yes, the phone takes excellent night photos, as evidenced in the city landscape displayed on this page.
Users will also be grateful for Huawei AI's technology that has been prepared to complement the Mate 20 Pro camera system. First seen on the P20 Pro, the AI Master is a compacted automatic mode that intelligently configures image settings depending on what the lens shows. Basically, what all this means is that you don't need to tamper with exposure settings or choose a suitable scene mode to capture decent images to be not only posted on Instagram but even hung on your wall.
I almost reached the limit for the number of characters to review the product, but here we are, more than 10,000 characters and there is still a lot to be written about – even gush – about the latest Huawei flagship smartphone. Suffice it to say that with a great big / not large screen, the best camera system can be found on any smart phone, plus the latest Android OS from the box (which will be a Pie), and a large 4200 mAh battery that is durable. for one and a half days, and can be filled quickly and wirelessly, Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the best smartphone on the market. Nothing is approaching.
