The Mate 20 Pro powered by Octa-Core CPU under the hood which has three tier design. There's 6GB/8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and faster Wi-Fi. It can also only connect to one of Huawei's optional gamepads (the company's idea of Joy-Cons), meaning players will always have to use touch-screen controls in some capacity. Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are going to be the company's first phones to have Kirin 980. The NPU, meanwhile, is said to be 226 percent more powerful than its predecessor.

Moreover, the camera array on both phones is upgraded to a three-Leica-camera set, adding a third 20MP ultra wide angle lens to the 40 MP main camera and 8MP 3X zoom lens. Given the fact that most OEMs are trying to gain a foothold in the Indian market, the phones were bound to come to the country, but we weren't expecting this to happen so soon. On the front side, there is a 24-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calls.

Other key camera features include a fully manual shooting mode, AI 4D predictive autofocus system, a dual tone flash module, 24mp front selfie camera with an f/2 lens, and the AI cinema mode which supports the 21:9 format as well as 16:9 and offers a range of cinematic in-camera effects. There's also a fingerprint sensor inside the display. The Mate 20 smartphone comes with a water-drop notch display, giving you another option to choose from.

No Big Winner: Powerball Jackpot Climbs To $430 Million

Huawei, the world's second-biggest phone maker behind Samsung, unveiled the Mate20 and Mate20 Pro to take on Apple's iPhone XS and Google's Pixel 3 at an event in London on Tuesday. The handset comes with a 4000mAh battery and is sold with a 22.5W Huawei SuperCharge charger. Considering the fact that Huawei's previously released premium phone, the P20 Pro sells for Rs.64,999 in India and this is a price sensitive market, we are quite sure that it will be offered at a reduced price in the country. The fast charging tech comes with safe certifications from TUV Rheinland. It comes with support for the "world's first wireless reverse charging" technology on a smartphone, which means it can wirelessly charge. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro announced today feature that weird camera arrangement we've seen leaked over the past couple of weeks. In terms of connectivity, the phone supports dual 4G VoLTE and dual band Global Positioning System. The device comes in two hues: Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver. It features a 7.2-inch OLED display with 1080 x 2,244 resolution and waterdrop notch. The Note 9 is definitely the phone Huawei is aiming to outdo with the Mate 20 Pro.

Moreover the hardware is powered by Huawei's new Kirin 980 processor that is built using a 7nanometre process the Chinese firm claims will deliver blisteringly quick performance.
