Four different and varied devices make up the Mate 20 family - the most ambitious Chinese manufacturer ever successful
Not everyone must love its creations, but there is no doubt that Huawei knows how to arouse interest and buzz around its latest products - perhaps even better than its top competitors סמסונג Waffle. Meet Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20X, Mate 20 and Mate 20 RS, each loaded with technologies and able to stand out on its own.
Kirin 980 everywhere
The standard Mate 20 is the cheapest in the new group, but without giving up chip The innovative octagonal 980 Kirin 7 in TSMC, with its quad-core Cortex A76 quad-core Cortex A55 for cost-effective operations and the Mali-G76MP10 graphics core, is also one we have not seen in other chips in the past. The performance should be worthy of the status of a flagship in every aspect, and also the use of a production process that neither Qualcom nor Apple currently has סמסונג Definitely adding credits for Huawei.
The advanced chip will be integrated with an elongated 6.53-inch screen based on an IPS panel with a resolution of 2,244 × 1,080 pixels, including HDR support, dynamic memory of 4GB or 6GB, built-in storage capacity of 128GB that can be further expanded (more information below), Android 9.0 system Pie straight from the factory with EMUI 9 interface, back fingerprint scanner, chip NFC Built-in, 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, basic IP53 protection for dust and water currents, an infrared transmitter and a 4,000mAh battery for convenience, which supports super fast charge charging up to 22.5 watts.
The triangular rear camera is the leading feature of the Mate 20 family, though it will not culminate in the standard version, which will be satisfied with a 12-megapixel main camera with electronic image stabilization and support for a shooting speed of up to 960 frames per second, along with an 8-megapixel camera A telephoto lens for close-up photography and a 16-megapixel camera for ultra-wide-angle photography - all of which are joined by a 24-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies with "simple" two-dimensional face recognition capabilities.
Prices for the Mate 20 will be 800 euros, including local VAT, for a base model with 4GB of memory RAM And 850 EUR to model with 6GB of memory Dynamic - when there is no point in directly comparing prices to dollars (as is the case with most manufacturers) because this model and its brother are not expected to be available in the United States at this stage. The available shades will be black, blue, pink, turquoise and two-tone that combines dark blue at the bottom and light blue at the top.
Mate 20 Pro - The differences are more noticeable than ever
Huawei's true flagship product for the end of the year 2018 will upgrade the display unit to the panel OLED Advanced with a size of 6.39 inches and a resolution of 3,120 × 1,440 pixels with support for the HDR10 standard, plus advanced IP68 protection that allows full immersion in water to survive, speakers Dual, 4,200mAh battery impressive, charging 15 W wireless quick, Fingerprint scanner Built-in screen and Super Charge wired charging up to 40 watts which is expected to fill up to 70 percent of the full capacity within just half an hour.
The camera system also received a significant upgrade, with the main 12-megapixel unit being replaced with a new 40-megapixel sensor from Sony, the wide-angle camera unit was upgraded to 20 megapixels, while the telephoto unit enjoys an optical image production system and the ability to provide a larger close-up. More equivalent to an 80-millimeter lens - while the front also adds to the 24-megapixel camera camera Infrared sensor with depth sensing that supports advanced 3D face detection in return for a significantly increased defect.
The Mate 20 Pro will be offered in just one version with 6GB of LPDDR4X memory and 128GB of storage, in the same shades as the Mate 20 and priced at 1,050 euros including VAT, which matches the prices of the most senior devices from home סמסונג Waffle.
Mate 20 X - Gaming Bench
The third model in the family is intended mainly for gamers, and combines the features of the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro plus the panel OLED With a size of 7.21 inches and a resolution of 2,244 × 1,080 pixels, this makes it one of the largest smartphones ever created.
The Mate 20 X includes the Mate 20 Pro main copier with an 40 megapixel resolution on one side, plus the system Cooling Is based on steaming cell and stereo speakers, but also compromises on Fingerprint scanner Standard rear, selfie camera without 53D face scanning technology and IP20 protection against water and dust identical to the data in the regular Mate 5,000 - all with the addition of a 22.5mAh battery that should compensate for the display unit's increased power consumption and XNUMX watt Super Charge charging.
The Mate 20 X will be offered with 6GB of dynamic memory and 128GB of storage at an official price of 900 euros, making it the cheapest way to get the most advanced photo array Huawei has to offer - and it will even include a touch pen support called the M-Pen With 4,096 different pressure levels, which unfortunately will be sold separately and will not enjoy a storage compartment built into the product body. Competitor to the family Galaxy Note this is not - but competing with some of the most popular and advanced gaming models on the market certainly makes sense.
Mate 20 RS - Huge leather and memories at monstrous prices
The collaboration between Huawei and Porsche Design continues this year, with models that will be almost identical to Mate 20 Pro but will offer volumes Memories Enlarged and mainly upgraded exterior design - with a black or red leather finish at the back and a central glass stripe above the photo units, which gives the product a style reminiscent of vehicles ספורט Decorated to a certain extent.
1,700 EUR will give you 8GB of RAM and 256GB of agile storage along with all the other capabilities mentioned in the previous paragraphs, while 2,100 Euro will provide 8GB of LPDDR4X and 512GB for storage, similar to the top Note 9 model of סמסונג Which is priced at 800 less. Manage to find some justification for the purchase Smart device Coming soon for 9,000 New Israeli Shekels?
Forget aboutmicroSD, Meet the NM
One complaint we have for the company relates to the unexpected abandonment of the "microSD - and its replacement in a new dedicated format called NM, or Nano Memory, with full compatibility with the dimensions of Nano-SIM cards.
Huawei declares space savings and performance and capabilities that will be similar to cards microSD But effectively limits the competitiveness and availability available to users, as it is the only unit that supports and will offer NM cards in the foreseeable future. Arrogance that will still harm the manufacturer or precedent that will actually gain momentum? We'll see.
Advanced wireless charging
One last curiosity in the Mate 20 Pro (and the technically similar Mate 20 RS) is that they can also be used as a charging station for other devices that support Qi technology, such as the XS and the X-Galaxy Note 9 for example.
It is hard to believe that this is a particularly useful and useful device, but it is certainly an interesting way to signal to us the apparent technological superiority of the Mate 20 to its competitors thanks to the large battery and the ability to make others base it to continue operating. Next year in all other flagship products?
It is difficult to assess whether the mother is already there Huawei It will succeed in taking second place in the smartphone universe thanks to its quartet - but there is no doubt that its success and high position are not accidental, but a product of technological investment and a willingness to innovate and improve.
