Unboxing The Huawei Mate 20 Pro — LYTV

The Mate 20 (left) and Mate 20 Pro from Huawei launched in London last week.

The phone features an iconic top notch camera and sensors. Now, Huawei also comes with the in-display fingerprint scanner for it's Mate 20 Pro flagship.

A spokesman told Business Insider on Monday: "We are not planning to sell the Mate 20 Series in the US".

Meanwhile, in Australia, only the 128GB Mate 20 is available and it costs just AU$1099 outright (about $780 / £600).

The Huawei MateBook D will start from RM2999, the MateBook X Pro Intel i5 from RM4999 and the MateBook X Pro i7 variant from RM6999. Like the Pro it's protected by Gorilla Glass and has a pre-fitted screen protector as well as a soft plastic case in the box. Sitting somewhere between a mid-ranger and flagship, the new Mate 20 series triple camera system - one ultrawide, one wide and one telephoto - is a first for Huawei. The rest of the features are identical to the Mate 20.

There is a 24-megapixel selfie lens at the front and it also comes with a 3D face unlocking feature.

Huawei has announced the Mate 20 series, the continuation of the flagship Mate line of devices. All the Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro UD smartphones will available in China in Emerald Green, Midnight Blue, Twilight and Black color options.

Unfortunately we won't have a chance to officially pick one up in the US. The battery life of the Watch GT is 420 mAh and can run up to a month in a special watch mode and two weeks in normal mode. It also gets plenty of AI goodness, which will help make several aspects of the phone better.

For example, the Mate 20 series will not be officially available for sale in the United States. The effects are also felt while running high-intensity games.

Other design highlights include a new SIM and NM (Nano Memory) card tray.

The 6.53-inch screen of the Mate 20 is engulfing. Namely that their glass and aluminium-heavy designs mean that users will have to cover up most of the phone in order to protect it, which is a bit of a pity if you ask us.

He says Huawei adding an extra lens could be seen as just adding for the sake of it, although: "When you know how to use it, it significantly improves the device and becomes a creation device of high-quality content". With a peak brightness of 820 nits brightness it shines bright and it packs depth in its colors, as well as great viewing angles. The Huawei Mate 20 X has body dimensions of 174.6 x 85.4 x 8.2 mm, and 232 grams in weight, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has body dimensions of 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8 mm and 201 grams in weight.

Not a fan of notches?

In his opening address to a couple hundred guests, Akhram Mohamed, Huawei SA's head of technology, said that, when smartphones are launched, usually the company will say something like: this is the best smartphone we've ever produced, "but at Huawei today we bring you the best smartphone".
