  • Huawei Mate 20 RS

Like the Mate 20 Pro, it will be powered by the company's latest HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor and come with 8GB of RAM. Then theres the charging – 40W wired SuperCharge and 15W wireless charging to fill the 4,200mAh battery. The front camera is also a 24MP shooter. The Pro in particular houses three - 40MP for wide angle, telephoto and a new 20MP ultra wide angle lens, which, complemented by those AI technologies now with 150 scenes recognised, promise to deliver a near-enough professional standard experience for all scenarios.

Battery is also vastly improved, with the Pro offering up to 70% in 30 minutes via super charge and 58% in the same time for the normal Mate.

The highlight of the new Mate 20 series is its new camera setup, and what powers the devices.

Security is provided by a 3D face scanner and an in-display fingerprint reader.

The Chinese phone maker managed to surpass Apple to take the No. 2 spot in the second quarter, industry data shows, despite facing an effective ban in the US market over whispered national security concerns. The AI is used for tasks like real-time translation of foreign languages - simply point the phone's camera at text in an unfamiliar language.

Both the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will run Huawei's Emui 9.0 skin, which is based on the latest Android 9 operating system.


The beefy phones, launched on Tuesday in London, are Huawei's answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Apple iPhone XS and Google Pixel 3 XL.

The RS features a glass back outlined with two strips of handcrafted leather, the Porsche Design branding on the back, and increased onboard storage up to 256GB.

Finally WinFuture declared the Mate 20 Pro will cost €999 (£876.38) for a version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Huawei also announced a new wearable during the launch, the Huawei Watch GT. The size of the display is 6.53-inches, bigger than that of the iPhone XS Max and it is an LCD panel with a resolution of 2244 x 1080.

Huawei's chief executive for consumer business group Richard Yu said the Watch GT will have a battery life of up to 14 days on a single charge, along with climbing sensors and altitude barometers that can show the user's vertical height. The Mate 20 Pro is priced at €1,049 (Rs 89,100 approximately) for the 6GB RAM with 128GB storage model, and both will be available starting October 16.
