Not everyone must love her works, but there is no doubt that Huawei knows how to spark interest and buzz around her latest products - maybe even better than her top competitors 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 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 Definitely adding credits for .

Minimal frontal fissure for one and only

The advanced chip will be integrated with an 6.53 X-based extended XPS panel at 2,244 × 1,080 pixels, including HDR support, 4GB or 6GB dynamic memory, 128GB built-in expandable storage (more info below), XNX system Pie straight from the factory with EMUI 9.0 interface, back fingerprint scanner, 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 triple rear camera is the leading feature of the Mate 20 family, although it will not peak in the standard version, which will provide a main 12 main camera with electronic image stabilization and support for up to 960 frame rate per second, along with the 8 megapixel camera Telephoto close-up lens and 16 megapixel camera for ultra-wide-angle photography - all joined by 24 front-facing selfie photography with "simple" 2D facial recognition capabilities.

Uniform or integrated shade - all glossy and attractive in both front and back glass

Prices of the Mate 20 will be at 800 Euro, including local VAT, for a base model with 4GB of memory And 850 EUR to model with 6GB of Dynamic - When there is no point in making a direct comparison of prices to dollars (as is the case with most manufacturers) because this model and its siblings are not likely to be available in the United States at this time. Available shades will be black, blue, pink, turquoise and two-tone, combining dark blue at the bottom with light blue at the top.

Mate 20 Pro - the differences are more pronounced than ever

Huawei's true flagship product for the end of the year 2018 will upgrade the display unit to the panel Advanced 6.39 inch and 3,120 × 1,440 pixel resolution with HDR10 standard support, plus advanced IP68 protection that allows for full water immersion, Dual, 4,200mAh battery impressive, charging 15 W wireless quick, 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 distinction between the Standard Mate 20 (left) and the Pro model can be made thanks to the presence or absence of the fingerprint scanner

The photography system was also significantly upgraded, with the first 12 megapixel being replaced by Sony's new-generation 40 megapixel, the wide-angle photography unit was upgraded to the 20 megapixel, while the telephoto unit enjoys a large optical image production and capacity More worth the 80 millimeter lens - while a preview is added to the 24 megapixel camera too Infrared sensor with depth sensing that supports advanced 3D face detection in return for a significantly increased defect.

Except for the enlarged flaw, the Pro model (left) also gives up its analog headphone connector - but except for these two features it exhibits superiority in every other field compared to its siblings

The Mate 20 Pro will be offered in only one version with LPDDR6X and 4GB storage for the same 128 and Euro 20 Euro shades including VAT, which matches the highest prices of home appliances 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 7.21-size 2,244 × 1,080 pixels, making 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 Is based on steaming cell and stereo speakers, but also compromises on Standard rear camera, selfie camera without 3D scanning technology and IP53 protection against water and dust identical to the standard Mate 20 data - all with an 5,000mAh battery that should atone for the display unit's increased power consumption and 22.5 power charging.

An 232 monster made available in blue or silver

The Mate 20 X will be offered with 6GB of dynamic memory and 128GB of official 900 Euro storage, making it the cheapest way to get Huawei's most advanced photography system - and even include touch pen support called the M-Pen With 4,096 different click levels, which unfortunately will be sold separately and also not have a built-in storage compartment in the product body. Competing for the family Note this is not - but competing for some of the most popular and advanced gaming models in this market is definitely a logical option.

There is a touch pen, but it does not seem that it is intended to be an integral and central part of the experience of use

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 Enlarged and mostly upgraded exterior design - with a black or red leather finish at the back and a central glass strip above the photography units, giving the style product reminiscent of vehicles Decorated to a certain extent.

Need half a terabyte of storage? You will need to switch to the RS model to do this

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 Which is priced at 800 less. Manage to find some justification for the purchase Coming soon for 9,000 New Israeli Shekels?

There is also a reddish hue

Forget about, Meet the NM

One complaint we have for the company relates to the unexpected abandonment of the " - and replace it with a new dedicated format for NM, or Nano Memory, with full compatibility to the size of Nano-SIM cards.

Huawei declares on-site saving and And may be similar to cards 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.

There's an extension - but not quite what we were hoping for

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- Note 9 for example.

Next hit in cable-free charging?

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 You 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 willingness to innovate and improve.
