The Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro feature the same camera setup from the P20 Pro, except the monochrome sensor which has been swapped out for an ultra-wide lens. The P20 Pro was acclaimed for its shots in low-light and Huawei says that the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro improve upon it. Photos aside, Huawei has putten lot of effort into pioneering videos with the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro. The two devices come with a number of 'AI-powered' features that are touted at making videos better. There is AI object recognition, which coupled with active tracking and AI Zoom, ensures that the subject remains in focus throughout the video. Using AI Cinema, users will be able to adjust the colour temperatures whilst recording the video. Lastly, there is Video Bokeh, which as the name suggests, blurs the background behind the subject.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been announced at an event in London. The phone comes in four colours as shown: Pink Gold, Midnight Blue, Emerald Green and Twilight Black. Blog post: https://www.androguider.com/2018/10/huawei-mate-20-mate-20-pro-announced.html


Huawei has introduced a new feature with the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro: reversible wireless charging. The Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro can be used as a wireless charging pad for other smartphones that support wireless charging. Huawei hasn't mentioned the power output reversible wireless charging will provide but it seems logical that to avoid heating issues the throughput will be lesser than the rate at which the phones can charge wirelessly.


In addition to the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro, Huawei has also announced the Porche Design Mate 20 RS and the Mate 20 X. The former is a Mate 20 Pro with a leather back and bright accent colours, while the latter is a 7.2" device with 'graphene' cooling, a stylus and a mammoth 5000mAh battery. The Mate 20 X is Huawei's attempt to take on Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.
