Little has lasted the leadership in the world of the high range to the new iPhone XS, or that is clear from everything we knew in London yesterday by the hand of Huawei. In an event with a lot of affluence, the Chinese firm wanted to show the world its new name phone and managed to surprise thanks to its most iconic new creation, the Huawei Mate 20 PRO.
BREAKING MOLDS WITH NOVELTIES THAT STAND OUT
Thus came the new Mate 20 Pro, breaking molds with all the new things that Huawei’s friends have been preparing in recent months. A phone that has managed to surpass the already pretty P20 Pro and that stands out for many new features, some of them quite striking as we can see below.
Remember that if you wish, you can also know all the details of Huawei Mate 20, the little brother, but no less attractive.
A NEW PROCESSOR TO BREAK ALL RECORDS
Only a few weeks ago, Apple achieved the achievement of being the first manufacturer to mount a 7-nanometer processor on a smartphone. This type of processors boosts performance, drastically reduces consumption and improves the efficiency applied to artificial intelligence. Huawei also already has its new 7-nanometer processor, the Kirin 980 and little comparison has with the previous generation.
According to Huawei, the Kirin 980 is able to raise the overall efficiency of the processor by more than 120 %. Now, in addition to a new reduced structure, it includes two neural processing engines, the well-known Huawei NPUs that ensure an impressive improvement in every way. For all this must be clear that we are not before a processor, we are facing an evolutionary leap of considerable dimensions.
In this model, we will constantly find differentiating details that make him a weird, modern and eager to move forward as far as new technologies are concerned. The first detail, beyond the processor itself, we find in its system to expand the memory, where Huawei launches for the first time its own system of expansion cards, which improve the transfer speed up to 90 MB per second. Will it be worth it? ? We will have to check it, but for the moment this penalizes the user who will not be able to use the usual standard model. Inside we will have 6 GB of RAM and 128 of internal memory.
A RENEWED DESIGN THAT REMINDS US A LOT OF SAMSUNG
With the nuances of a phone with its own essence, the Huawei Mate 20 PRO inspires its design in the Samsung ecosystem with curved edges and rear screens. A detail that feels especially good and is a safe bet for aesthetic success.
The back part has a composition of glass and aluminum that enjoy an anti-fingerprint treatment. This eliminates or significantly limits the problem of glass, extreme dirt.
If you’re going to meet the new Mate 20 Pro, it’s because of its rear camera body. This has a unique aesthetic, own, and that has nothing to do with what has been seen to date. Its three lenses and its flash are on a square black island in the central part of the device. This gives it a personality of its own and recognizable quickly.
On the front we have a stunning 6.39-inch OLED display with QHD + resolution that looks great, meeting the demands for a model of this level. It may not be up to the panels mounted by Samsung or Apple, but you will not miss them.
A BREAKTHROUGH BATTERY THAT IS CAPABLE OF GIVING AND RECEIVING
That the battery segment is something well controlled in Huawei is nothing new. They already did it masterfully in the P20 and now they are far exceeded in this Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
The new unit is able to store 4,200 mAh physically through USB type C and thanks to its glass body, you can also do it wirelessly. So far fine, but no news. The difference comes thanks to the new system implemented by Huawei, in which the Mate 20 Pro can give and receive energy. That is, we can load other wireless devices using the Mate 20 PRO as a charging base. FLIP!
One of the most positive aspects is that we can load the vast majority of existing devices, iPhone, Samsung, Xiaomi, all without distinction may receive power from a Mate 20 Pro. To this, we must add our own rapid charging system that may be the fastest in the market so far.
A POOR SOUND THAT NEEDS TO IMPROVE IN THE FUTURE
One of the strangest and most extravagant points of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is found in its lower speaker. This has been installed inside the space reserved for the USB type C charging and therefore eliminates the lower output typical of all smartphones for sound.
Not all novelties should be praised, and this is one of them. The sound loses power, it needs a plus of force and when we put the load port, this problem increases. The need for interior space has been able to motivate this change, but at the moment it needs to improve a lot and is far from a telephone with this price.
EMUI: A CHINESE IN THE SHOE FOR THIS HUAWEI MATE 20 PRO
Not everything was going to be perfect in this Huawei Mate 20 PRO and that piece that does not finish fitting in the Chinese puzzle is called EMUI. In case you still do not know, EMUI is the layer of personalization that Huawei places on Android to deliver its own design and functionalities.
Unlike other systems that evolve at a fantastic speed, such as Xiaomi’s MIUI, EMUI penalizes the use of the telephone. Small pulls, poor interface, many details that tarnish the impressive power and fluidity of this new device. In addition, the multiple pre-installed applications do not help to have a stock experience on the phone and we miss the news that other manufacturers have already had for some time. Huawei put your batteries!
One of the most positive aspects of this layer is the possibility of sharing our desktop with the TV screen without cables and without extra elements, as if it happens in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, a terminal with which it rivals directly.
SECURITY: REAL FACIAL UNLOCKING AND FINGERPRINT ON SCREEN
If there is one aspect that is evolving rapidly in the smartphone sector is that of security. We have gone from phones with unlocking by numerical code to facial unlocks, passing through fingerprint readers and the like.
Unlike the Huawei Mate 20, the Pro model has a notch of more prominent dimensions. This is due to the integration for the first time in the brand of a facial unlocking system through a dedicated sensor. That is, joins Apple and Xiaomi in the implementation of this new technology, which we dare to say, works better than any other brand so far. Fast, smart and efficient in all situations.
THE PHOTOGRAPHIC EVOLUTION CONTINUES TO IMPROVE WITH THE MATE 20 PRO
The first thing that strikes the attention of this new Huawei Mate 20 PRO when we look at its back, is the camera body. This is available in a square, peculiar and differentiating way. Inside we have 3 sensors and the flash placed aesthetically.
The first sensor has 40 megapixels with a focal aperture 1.8 in charge of capturing every detail in the shots. The second camera has 20 MP f / 2.2, serves as support and wide-angle. Finally, an 8 MP camera dedicated in its entirety to the telephoto function will allow us to make a brutal zoom without loss of quality. Of the best in this plot.
It is not the best camera on the market, but its quality is in line with its status in the high range, especially in terms of night photography, where we see spectacular results. The penalty is found in the need for several seconds to correctly capture the photos in the absence of light, the result is worthwhile.
HOW MUCH DOES THE HUAWEI MATE 20 PRO COST?
This is the million dollar question, how much does the Mate 20 Pro cost? Well, the price for the first time exceeds the barrier of 1,000 euros. Specifically, you can get this impressive device for Rs. 84000 in its only version available, at least in other countries, 6 + 128GB.
