On 16th October, Huawei, the Chinese tech giant launched the much awaited Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro in a event held in the London, Uk. With these top-end phones, the Chinese firm aims to secure its place at the top of the mobile market alongside Samsung. Interestingly, Huawei also recently beaten Apple to become the second-largest smartphone manufacturer in August this year.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the supercharged version of the ‘standard’ Huawei Mate 20. While some specs of Mate 20 Pro are similar to its less expensive counterpart, with both handsets coming with Huawei’s latest Kirin 980 7nm processor, 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. However, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is able to justify its higher cost with several impressive features.
Difference between Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro
There are also some differences between both models; the most obvious of which can be found on the front. Both devices feature near-bezel-less displays, the regular Mate 20 actually looks better from the front. It comes with a very minimal “dewdrop” notch that houses the single front-facing camera. The Mate 20 Pro’s notch is more similar to something you see on an iPhone. This is because the Pro model comes with more advanced face unlock tech sensors.
