Huawei's Mate 20 Pro launches in Canada on November 8th


Huawei introduced two new phones on Tuesday as part of its Mate 20 series - and in a twist, the device with the smaller screen and significantly larger notch is the premium "Pro" model. Though, both phones have expansion potential (via microSD in the case of the Note 9 and nano memory card for the Mate 20 Pro).

The Mate 20 Pro will also ship with a 24-megapixel front-facing camera that will allow for face unlocking functionality, WinFuture added. Personally, I have always been a fan of LG's wide-angle lens so it is good news (for me; bad for LG) to see other companies follow that route. So far, the company has never launched any Mate branded device in the country.

Check out our full hands on with the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro and our unboxing videos will be live imminently! This event will air from London at 2 PM local time (at 6.30 PM IST).

Users can watch the live stream in different voice languages like in French, Russian, Arabic, and Spanish. In the below write-up you can know about launch event details and some specs roundup for both the Mate 20 devices.

But ahead of the Mate 20 Pro's debut, the hardware appears to have been plagued by a number of leaks that may have outed its best features.

Further, the flagship smartphone features a 4,200mAh "safety certified" battery that Huawei says can charge up to 70 percent within 30 minutes.

Talking about Mate 20 Pro, it will carry a curved 6.4 inch OLED display having full HD resolution with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. It is expected the devices will come to other countries at a later time.

The P20 Pro launched with the Kirin 970 processor that offered very capable performance, but it appears Huawei is determined to take things to the next level. The phone is tipped to come with 6GB of RAM and a 4,200mAh battery. The phone is said to have a 3.5mm audio jack at the top, and a glass back cover. Huawei Mate 20 Pro price is Euro 1049, and it comes in only 6GB/ 128GB variant.

As it's done with the previous Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, it's expected that the two phones will share similar specs and designs, but the Pro will likely have the edge when it comes to amounts of RAM, storage and nearly certainly price, thereby earning its "Pro" moniker.
