After the official presentation of the new and have to get to know them much better up close and for that, nothing better than a first impressions, a good amount of live photos of the terminals and a video to enjoy our shot contact. Yes, you have everything below. Sit back and read on.
The new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro from Huawei arrive to be placed at the top of the high-end telephony sector. For this they combine a good design, continuist but effective, powerful features and a photographic system of no less than three sensors. You have our first opinion in this video.
Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro: making contact
The Mate 20 is surprising just having it in hand for its comfort of grip and high quality construction. Its design , as we say, is continuistic, but attractive, with a back that according to the color, looks an attractive framework that you can surely appreciate in the images.
The team enjoys a screen of 6.53 “FHD + (2.244 x 1.080) with good viewing angles, support RGBW and HDR – its format is 18.7: 9. Speaking of this, this time has a screen curiously smaller than the Mate 20, offering a panel of 6.39 “2K + (3.120 x 1.440) curved OLED with HDR support and a 19.5: 9 format. The most special thing is that the panel comes with an integrated fingerprint sensor with Dynamic Pressure Sensing technology – the Mate 20 keeps the reader on its back.
Fast and fluid handling, blame for it is the Kirin 980 processor that feeds both terminals, the world’s first 7 nm processor, capable of increasing the performance of its artificial intelligence platform by 134%, promises Huawei. And is that the Kirin 980 comes with double NPU, responsible for enhancing all the AI skills to get even more benefit. This chip is also accompanied by 4 GB of RAM in the case of Mate 20 and 6 GB, if we refer to the Mate 20 Pro. Both pull an internal memory of 128 GB, which must be added the ND Card, a new memory standard the house that handles the information at a higher speed.
Remember that the phones comes with Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9.0 . This interface has changed little, but has been simplified to make life easier for the user , says Huawei. Thus, what the firm intends to consolidate the EMUI 8.0 experience, but with fewer screens, offering menus that are now more condensed and organized for example when accessing terminal settings. For the rest, the printing is very similar to what we have already had with other equipment in the house.
Regarding the camera , it is undoubtedly one of the pillars of the phones. The devices come with a Leica triple sensor system with telephoto, wide angle and ultra wide angle of 8 MP with f / 2.4 and integrated OIS, 40 MP with aperture f / 1.8 and 20 MP with f / 2.2, respectively for the Pro, and 8 MP with f / 2.4 and integrated OIS, 12 MP with aperture f / 1.8 and 16 MP with f / 2.2 for Mate 20. In the case of Mate 20 Pro, the equipment also comes with a macro mode of 2, 5 cm that is activated thanks to the work of artificial intelligence and that in our tests works quite well and fast, both in the focus and in the recognition of the scene. It goes without saying that both phones enjoy a multitude of capture modes and enhanced features that make the photographic experience one of the most positive points of contact, at least in this first encounter.
Another aspect to note is that the Mate 20 Pro comes with a battery of 4,200 mAh (for the first time reaches that figure), promising up to two days of use that we are looking forward to check thoroughly. Both this module and the 4,000 mAh of the Mate 20 enjoy support for super-fast charging Huawei SuperCharge , which only needs 30 minutes of charging to reach for example 70% of the 4,200 mAh of the battery of the Mate 20 Pro. specifically it also comes with an extra: Wireless Reverse Charging , capable of sharing battery by just touching your back with another phone that supports this technology-yes, the gesture is similar to when you “hook” two terminals for your NFC.
