The Mate 20 is the new smartphone in Huawei's phablet range. Here are the big things to look out for in the latest flagship from the Chinese telecommunications giant.
Huawei has talked up the Kirin 980 chip, saying it would "destroy" chips found in other flagship phones. The Kirin 980 IS an impressive processor; in the Mate 20, Huawei promises 20% better performance and 40% better battery efficiency over its predecessor. Considering what the predecessor was capable of, these improvements are not to be sneezed at.
These are impressive as well, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and variations available should you need more.
Thin bezels on the Mate 20 accentuate the 6.43-inch AMOLED display (with a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels) and take photos and movies right to the edge!
Huawei have made big strides in enhancing their smartphone - they consider it a priority as they compete against the cameras on other smartphones. The Mate 20 benefits from this focus on delivering an improved photographic experience. A feature packed selfie camera and triple lens rear camera work in conjunction with an AI Zoom, which automatically adjusts while keeping the subject in focus.
There's plenty to like about the video recording too, including AI Cinema mode which adds filters while you're shooting, while a Video Bokeh mode blurs the background and keeps the subject firmly in focus.
Nothing is done by halves in the Mate 20, including the 4,000 mAh battery!
A newer model Huawei Mate 30 will be released in November 2019.
