As the latest flagship of the Mate series, the HUAWEI Mate 20 series has been fully enhanced in terms of performance. The system is equipped with a Kirin 980 processor that was developed by Huawei. On this chip, Huawei has created many of the world's first experiences, including the first adoption of the 7nm TSMC process, which first adopted the new Cortex-A76 architecture, a new AI engine that was refined, and a stronger GPU. At the same time, this is also a rare full-screen cellphone with a special shaped surface. Next, we see the explosive performance and unique screen experience of HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro with 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM.

Mate who is more diverse and younger
Similar to the Mate 10 series, the Mate 20 model has the same design language, the difference is mainly on the screen. Taking the Mate 20 Pro we took for example, the contour of the fuselage maintains the series style, and the smaller rounded corners outline the slightly squared contours, which are distinguished from the slimmer P-series. Continuing the combination of double-sided glass + middle frame metal material from previous generation products, Huawei uses the same treatment with bright colors to make the rear glass and middle frame more integrated.
Because the Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a curved screen, the engine has the most unique angles of the three models in the same series – in fact, this design is the same as the Mate RS released this spring, and the rear is made twice the front screen. The angles are combined with the compressed middle frame to form a bearing structure. The customized Mate 20 Pro not only has a more unique visual effect on the screen, but also compressed side thickness, making the thickness after the start slimmer.
At the same time, Huawei let the P10 highlight power button design return to the Mate 20 series. The red painted power button echoes the iconic elements of the co-branded Leica, opens the SIM card slot, and can also be a waterproof glue on the end. The same red element is found in a circle. The two-sided card slot design saves a lot of space in the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro. In addition to inserting two Nano-SIM cards, users can also choose to insert a self-developed Nano-SIM card and Huawei Memory Card (NM memory card for additional storage). Huawei NM memory card offers a wide selection of high capacity 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, and data read speeds up to 90MB / s, which can meet the needs of devices such as smartphones and digital cameras.
▲The lower part of the fuselage has a SIM card slot and a Type-C interface that supports 40W super fast load. The two-sided SIM card slot and supports dual dual-card dual 4G VOLTE and a maximum memory card of 256GB NM.
Compared with careful consideration of details, Huawei is more on the details of the rear of the fuselage. The Mate 20 Pro immediately abandoned the decorative belt design on the Mate 10 series, combining this year's main Leica lens and LED lights to form a square matrix structure. This group of lenses, designed by netizens as "Yuba", is the core element of the back of the Mate 20 Pro, allowing people to recognize it at a distance of three meters. Does that look good depending on the aesthetics of each individual, but clearly works in terms of uniqueness.
▲The left side of the fuselage is an infrared transmitter, which can be used to control home appliances remotely such as TV and AC. The metal frame and back cover are uniform in color, and the joints are tightly sewn to form a basic barrier for splashing IP68 and water resistance.
Of course, Huawei doesn't forget to continue to play the popular color concept. Base on classic bright black, cherry powder, sapphire blue, etc., has changed the color of the aurora and added a green to cold system. The color of the aurora is replaced with deep blue to purple, which is more in line with the Mate series aesthetics from loyal users. Sapphire and smooth and cool blue adds a diagonal line texture from the yellow etching process, which feels like a finer P10 diamond carving texture. This can effectively increase cellphone grip for users who have more sweat and are more slippery. Time stability.
Leap forward performance in the 7nm process
From a specification standpoint, compared to the previous Kirin 970 and Kirin 960, Kirin 980 can be described as a comprehensive upgrade, basically every part of the processor has made significant progress, including CPU, GPU, storage, ISP, baseband, Capability codec, NPU, etc.
Kirin 980 processor is the first 7nm mobile SoC product officially released in the world. The process is TSMC, compared to Kirin 970 based on the 10nm process, Kirin 980 with new process technology can cover the chip area with the same number of transistors. Reduced by 37%, installed in more transistors, and leads to better power control and better performance, resulting in at least a 20% performance increase and 40% lower power consumption.
The Kirin 980 still has eight cores, using the 2 + 2 + 4 architecture, where high-performance groups use two core Cortex-A76 processors running at 2.6GHz. The energy saving core is still the Cortex-A76 architecture, but the frequency is reduced to 1.92 GHz, which will be prioritized in most daily mission scenarios. Finally, the low power core consists of four core Cortex-A55 architectures that run at 1.8GHz, which is known for its small size and extreme power consumption. With a three core DynamIQ package solution, it can operate flexibly according to actual needs with high performance, high energy efficiency ratio and low power consumption.
▲The unique feature of Kirin 980 in architectural design is the 8-core "2 + 2 + 4" solution.
On the GPU side, the progress of the Kirin 980 is even more extraordinary. The new 10-core Mali G76 GPU seems smaller than the 12-core Mali G72 core used in the previous generation Kirin 970, but the computing resources of each EU unit have doubled, increasing to 8 FMA and ADD / SF Pipelines, sources total computing power increased by 66%, performance increased by 46%, and the ratio of energy consumption increased by 178%. With the support of GPU Turbo 2.0 technology, you can get a better gaming experience.
▲Compared to Kirin 970, Kirin 980 has significantly improved GPU performance.
At the same time, the Kirin 980 also adopted a new dual-core NPU, the ability of which was concluded to have increased from 2030 times / minute to 4,500 times / minute, AI's computing capacity doubled. This is a significant advance in GPU and NPU performance that allows HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro to add more new features to AI shooting, such as a pleasant AI color recording feature.
▲After evolving from a single-core NPU to a dual-core NPU, the Kirin 980 can accurately identify, separate and track objects in video in real time.
Especially for the actual game experience, we use HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro to run two popular games "Glory of the King" and "Journey Survival: Stimulate the Battlefield", and record the current CPU core and game frame with CpuFloat and Gamebench. . We can see that with the new 2 + 2 + 4 architecture from Kirin 980, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro running in high-performance mode can fully eat two games with very high performance requirements without full load, and most of them Time to keep the game screen in 60fps conditions are very smooth.
▲When running "Glory of the King", the CPU core does not need to be fully activated, and high-performance cores can ensure smooth images at the 2.2GHz frequency.
▲Gamebench's monitoring shows that HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro maintains a 60fps full frame operation for most of the time in the King Glory game. This game is very stable.
▲ Gamebench's monitoring shows that the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro runs "Jesus Survival: Stimulate the Battlefield" and maintains a stable and smooth gaming experience for 60fps for a long time.
Even when driving fast ("Jesus Survival: Stimulating the Battlefield") or team multiplayer battles ("Glory of the King"), the minimum number of frames in the game is stored above 52fps. At the same time, during the game, the CPU will flexibly call the core according to the situation of the resources it occupies, instead of maintaining a full performance state at all times, the energy efficiency ratio is a relatively perfect control, and it is also an effective load reduction for battery life.
With a stronger AI performance than Kirin 980, EMUI 9.0 on HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro combines more AI functions, bringing recognition of calorie AI and accompanying translations. Among them, the AI calorie recognition function is loved by many female users, can recognize calories from nearly one thousand types of food, accurate for each mouth, can also identify a complex structured food calorie index. Translation of AI translations can be translated by AR, translating menus, road signs, etc. In dozens of languages, and with the Skylink function, it can help users travel unhindered overseas.
▲The 3D Qmoji expression can even track the direction of the user's tongue sticking process
Enhanced communication capabilities, dual frequency GPS
Thanks to the powerful strength of Huawei's communication technology, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is equipped with the world's leading 4G baseband that supports CAT.21, which supports 4 × 4 MIMO, 1.4Gbps download rate and 2 × 2. MIMO, 200Mbps upload speed, supports 5CA, 256QAM, operator aggregation 3x. At the same time, he abandoned the traditional Broadcom solution and switched to the self-developed Hi1103 Wi-Fi module, supports 802.11ac standards, 2 × 2 MIMO and 160MHz bandwidth, speeds up to 1732Mbps, and continues to improve cellular networks at high speed rails, Performance general signal area like subway.
In terms of actual experience, the Mate 20 Pro's performance is extraordinary. When using China Unicom's full 4G network, the maximum download speed is 19Mbps and the upload speed is 31.3Mbps. Compared to the average download and upload speeds of 12Mbps / 24Mbps iPhone X, the increase is very clear. Under the Wi-Fi environment to access broadband 200M fiber optic cable, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro has a maximum download speed of 138Mbps and upload speeds of 38.7Mbps, compared to the iPhone X, download speeds and uploads of 100Mbps / 30Mbps in the Wi-Fi environment are the same. Many improvements.
▲Download and upload the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro rate on the China Unicom 4G network
▲Some speed measurements in a Wi-Fi environment with 200M bandwidth faster than ordinary cellphones
On the other hand, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is Huawei's first model that uses super-precision dual-channel GPS-dual-band positioning technology. In open environments, GPS deviations mainly come from delays generated by signals through the ionosphere, while the Mate 20 Pro uses dual-frequency dual-frequency L1 + L5 to effectively correct ionospheric delays. The theoretical starting error of the L1 band is 300 meters, and the theoretical starting error of the L5 band is 30 meters. L5 is 10 times higher than the L1 frequency band position. In theory, dual-frequency online can effectively solve the reflections of city building reflections.
In the actual test, we walked past the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro in the CBD area of a high-rise building in Chongqing. From the results, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro with dual frequency GPS positioning can position users very accurately, and even see the side of the road where the user moves from the route.
The surface, bangs and fingerprints of the screen are not lost
The Mate 20 series of 4 new products was released this time, the hardware used in the Kirin 980 processor, but the screen specifications are different. Among them, Mate 20 and Mate 20 X use LCD pearl screens of 6.53 inches and 7.2 inches respectively, while Mate 20 Pro and Mate RS use very special screens – full screen curved surfaces, giving us a familiar experience and not normal
In general, to accommodate structured 3D light unlock solutions, the top of the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro screen has our common "bangs", and the width of the iPhone XS will be slightly narrower. At the same time, the screen material is flexible OLED with 2K resolution, and both sides have a relatively clear curved surface. As the metal middle frame extends to the rear, the 3D curved glass back cover is used to make the waist slim. And bring a very warm handle. No stranger, this must be the first blend of "Liu Hai" and a full-screen surface from the surface. The full screen surface effectively reduces the width of the border on both sides effectively, allowing our attention to be more concentrated in the actual display area, thus allowing "Liu Hai no longer awkward, reaching almost 90% of the screen.
In actual experience, the performance of a curved surface shaped like this is very good. At 6.39 inches and 3120 × 1440 resolutions, the screen's pixel density reaches 538 ppi, and the display effect is fine. Even when viewed at close range, desktop icons and fonts don't look jagged. At the same time, according to our test results using the Datacolor Spyder5 Elite color correction instrument, the NTSC gamut color screen coverage area is 100.03%, which continues the high saturation characteristics of the AMOLED screen, and the beautiful color display and visual effects are very good. In the settings, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro also provides the option "color adjustment and color temperature", the user can switch between standard standards (to actual color) and live mode, or gradually adjust the color temperature in the color ring.
▲Through actual testing, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro screen covers 100.03% of all NTSC colors.
In "Liu Hai" provided on the screen, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro has added a 3D structured optical module to support face recognition and 3D structured light activation, an introduction speed of less than 600 md, and more than 30,000 laser detection points can be redrawn. Five details. In actual experience, the speed and level of recognition using a structured 3D light-open light is very good. The time interval from screen lighting to opening to the desktop is very short. It can be seen that when a 3D structured optical module detects a human face, it is already in standby. So, to achieve a fast response that lights up and opens. At the same time, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro also adopted a screen fingerprint identification scheme, so that the body does not have a physical fingerprint button, and the design is relatively simpler.
▲ Liu Hai part of the 3D structured face recognition, also added screen fingerprints, both can be used to open the lock, pay, access to the security cabinet and other functions.
The built-in Kirin 980 inSE security chip can reach chip level and financial level security protection, and has obtained certification from most mainstream financial platforms and EMVCo financial chip security standards, also allows Huawei to make mobile payments with mainstream bank card organizations. Cooperation in terms of aspects. At the same time, under the protection of the fingerprint recognition screen + the introduction of light surface 3D structure, the mobile security index can be greatly improved. At present, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro has supported Alipay's dual fingerprint + online payment function, and can also set up independent instant fingerprint payments for Huawei (HUAWEI Pay) wallets, making AI unlocking more widely used.
▲Activating the face recognition direct unlock option in settings can effectively increase the efficiency of unlocking.
In addition, the Kirin 980 also has a hardware-level password security function, which not only can store account passwords, but can also be associated with face recognition ID and fingerprint identification. After verification is passed, the account password can be filled in automatically.
Based on 3D structured optical modules, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro also adds Qmoji 3D functions to the camera's fun AR mode. Here, users can make their own personal expressions. Compared to other similar functions on mobile phones, Qmoji 3D is more alive and can even track the tongue's continuous movements in all directions.
One real machine to go to the world
In the first half of 2018, the P20 Pro featured, Huawei adopted the world's first three camera combination, equipped with 40 million pixels (color / wide angle) + 20 million pixels (black and white / wide angle) + 8 million pixels (color / tele ), With 1 + 1 + 1> 3 hard power, it has been ranked first in the list of DxOMark mobile cameras.
The pixel three sensor of the Mate 20 Pro has not changed, and the whole is changed to a color sensor. At the same time, the camera is adjusted to expand practicality, which is 40 million pixels (wide angle) + 20 million pixels (ultra wide angle) + 8 million pixels (Jiao length), the three lenses are still Leica certified. In addition, Huawei has redesigned the three-shot Mate 20 Pro layout, and along with flash to form a matrix structure, external visual effects are more aggressive, and an easy glance to think of it as a four-snap combination.
▲Leica-certified three-shot and LED light filling is distributed in the matrix. The third camera is a 40-megapixel wide-angle camera + 20-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera + 8 megapixel 3x optical telephoto zoom camera.
▲Focal focal length (wide angle) and super wide angle photos in the same scene. Although the super wide-angle focus angle controls image quality slightly less than the default focal length, the field of view captured is wider. However, like most super wide-angle lenses, there will be some distortion on the edge of the screen. If you use distortion changes, you can take unique photos.
▲In standard mode, due to AI optimization and thanks to four pixel technology, the night view details are better than most smartphones. The Super Night View Mode will further enhance the dark detail of the image after more than three seconds of continuous shooting + framing in an optimized frame, so that the darker parts of the actual scene become brighter, which greatly increases the transparency and color of night scene photos.
Although the Mate 20 Pro lens has been adjusted, Huawei still maintains a 3x optical zoom and 5x hybrid zoom on the P20 Pro. With a new super wide angle focal length, it has added 0.6 times super wide width and can capture 2.65 times the reach of standard viewing angles. This is suitable for shooting in open scenes, group photos and tourist attractions.
▲ The picture above shows the default focal length, focal length three times, and focal length five times. The default focal length has the best image quality, which fully returns the true look and feel of the original scene, and three times the focal length detail also has good recovery. The five fold zoom of the Mate 20 Pro is visible, and the item details of this product are clear. This feature can be used to capture super-distance details in most scenes.
In other extreme practical scenes, macros, Mate 20 Pro supports 2.5cm macro images that are more exaggerated, and can even observe the hidden secrets of special fine lines on the renminbi through macros. The distance is between 5cm or even further to make the subject clearer. Closer macro shooting distances can help users capture more macro details, and players who love flowers and close-up lives will definitely fall in love with this function.
▲The super 20cm Mate 20 Pro super macro can basically be considered as the current limit for mobile macro photography. The actual size of a screwdriver fixes a small digital product, but the anti-skid pattern of the screwdriver handle is clearly below the 2.5 cm super macro close-up. Seen.
Because the sensor hasn't changed much, the core output of the Mate 20 Pro in many cases is still dominated by a 40 megapixel sensor. This sensor uses four pixel combination technology to achieve higher image quality, so that the actual shooting pixel is 10 million. At the same time, Huawei's iconic camera functions – masters of AI photography, super night scenes, etc. have been inherited and upgraded, then we take the example as an example to see how the actual photos of Mate 20 Pro perform.
▲Based on a stronger AI performance, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro adds a variety of real-time film filters and AI colors (portrait retention) to video recording, as well as the beauty of real-time portraits.
▲The Mate 20 Pro recording function has added an AI recording filter for the first time. AI's color functions are similar to focus colors in post-photography, but differ from the main color filtering that is provided directly in some applications, but is captured by AI algorithms in real time. The character, and the background color are stripped to black and white, carrying dynamic images with collisions. In addition, users can also record 21: 9 super wide angle video ratios with super wide-angle lenses.
Meet all your needs for battery life
Battery life is also in the spotlight of the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro. From a parameter point of view, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 4200mAh battery, which is 200mAh more than the Mate 10 years ago. At the same time, the Kirin 980 chip with more sophisticated process technology further reduces power consumption, and overall durability capacity will greatly increase. The actual test results also prove this.
In the previous game frame rate test, we monitor mobile power consumption. The relatively low performance of "King of Glory" averages 10% of electricity consumption per half hour, while the performance requirements are slightly higher, "Jesus Survival: The battlefield stimulus consumes 12% of electricity every half hour. In other words, plays" Glory of the King "with the strength of 100% HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro can last for almost 5 hours. According to the intensity of use of ordinary users, it's really easy to use the day and there is still a lot of strength left.
Besides being longer on standby, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro also supports fast 40W cable charging and unlimited 15W fast charging, and has reached the top level in charging efficiency, so that mobile phones can quickly "restore blood." We do a complete cable charging test on this. From the test results, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro can complete a full load in just 1 hour and 12 minutes. The whole process is divided into three stages: high-speed charging at high speeds higher than 9V / 3.8A at the initial stage, so users can start in a short time, the center continues to maintain a 9V voltage for a long time, and the current is reduced to 3A. Left and right, let the phone "restore blood" to more than 70% in half an hour, then gradually reduce power and continue to drop the charge until the power recovers to 100%, and the charging power is stable around 15W.
▲ HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro fills the power curve, the entire charging process is 1 hour and 12 minutes, charging from 0 to 50% only takes about 20 minutes. In addition to charging late droplets, charging power in the first and middle stages is relatively stable. After playing games without electricity, you can play for several hours after taking a nap.
As a superior product with a long battery life and very fast charging capability, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is not only satisfied with charging, but also has added a new reverse wireless charging technology. On the back of the cellphone, in addition to conventional wireless charging coils, a set of output coil kits has been added, which can be converted into mobile resources to charge other cellphones, earphones and the like that support wireless charging technology. When this function is needed, the user can enable the reverse wireless recharge option in the settings, and then wirelessly charge devices that require wireless charging on the back of the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro as usual using a wireless charger dock. .
In actual use, we use the iPhone X to do several tests, both of which will automatically start the filling process as soon as they are touched. This is very practical for fruit powder with "low electrical anxiety". Of course, to ensure the safety of your HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro battery, Huawei does not provide this series of power that is too high, but enough to use it to charge another cellphone in a temporary emergency situation.
Written at the end
Starting from the three-snap Leica P20 Pro, Huawei's flagship mobile has made great strides in the past based on excellent shooting. At the current Mate 20 Pro, complete evolution has been achieved again, extending the superiority of three shots to almost all shooting scenes. In addition, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro has many highlights, including 40W fast charging, 15W wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, 3D structured light, fingerprints below the screen, and the Kirin 980 with exceptional AI performance.
It's easy to extend a piece of wood in a "wooden barrel". It's hard to stretch all the boards. Judging from the "wooden barrel" principle, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro has achieved its flagship superiority, and the performance of every aspect has reached the top level. The functions of other phones or black technology are almost all available, and you want to be "unstable". That is also difficult.Return to Sohu and see more
