A few weeks ago – just hours after the global launch in London – I wrote a note where it is obvious that this is the impression Huawei I stayed in me after I discovered the new series of Mate 20 in the world: I no longer wanted to be a player, I did not want to fall on my shoulder. For the first time – at least for me – it felt that the Chinese company played all their cards. He put all the chips on the table. He screamed the world he was beting for. It may seem like an exaggeration, but I think Mate 20 Series Huawei is ready to compete with its competitors, from the point of view of design, hardware, and software.
Three weeks I tested Mate 20 Pro, the most modern equipment of this new family Huawei (Mate 20 has just a few things less and Mate 20 X points, first of all, in the "Player" segment). I have it as the main smartphone. Frankly, the experience was very good and I predicted something a note with my first impressions of the teamFrom P9 Huawei it is clear that his priority was to have the best camera to easily capture the best photos. However, the video was always his grim.
Judgment? Mate 20 Pro shows great progress Huawei in its global proposal and shows a very mature proposal. Best of all, especially for brand lovers, is that it still has a roof to offer more.
Next, we will review the main features of the new smartphone Huawei, Mate 20 Pro:

Mate 20 Pro from Huawei At first glance it impresses. One of the things that attracted my attention from the beginning of the three teams (Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 X) seemed very light.
Huawei additionally cleared the design and now looks more premium than ever.
But, it is undoubtedly the one that attracts the most attention to setting the camera back. They are no longer organized horizontally, ordered; nor vertically, one below the other. In Mate 20 Pro of Huawei, three cameras are located inside the square, followed by flashing, like one of the face of the dead. Speaking to a newspaper photographer, he tells me that – by his understanding – the most logical way of setting up a camera, because it allows a more complete vision.
Another thing to highlight is the variety of colors available this time. If for P20 Pro the color that caused the sensation was dusk, in the case of Mate 20 Pro all looks are taken emerald green (available in Peru with only one operator). Of course: the colors are attenuated to be attractive, but without attracting too much attention. Oh, yes, I mean Huawei It did not do well with pink color (it will not be available in the country yet).
Already in hand, it is impossible to notice that in Mate 20 Pro there was an inspiration in more contemporary models of the other brands: elongated screen, smaller edges, bandage or striking cerquillo (although there are several sensors), curvature of the screen etc. But it is also well give another reading. Today they all work because that's the trend. Huawei It also adopts these tendencies and they are revealed in this Mate 20 Series.
Despite the 6.4-inch screen, the Mate 20 Pro is very ergonomic and we are in trouble when we want to manipulate it with just one hand, especially if it's not very big. As we used to Huawei, this device also includes a rubber enclosure that allows us to start using a certain layer of security and facilitates adhesion.
One of the news in Huawei Mate 20 Pro is using the Kirin 980 processor. What do you have to know about it? It works well, is very powerful and you will understand it. In normal use (even in heavy use), you will not get the equipment "tired". You will surely have to read that this processor is 7 nanometers and that is very important. Do you know why? Because they have achieved better performance, with lower energy consumption and greater heat dissipation.
The terminal I tested was 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. More than enough. However, in Mate 20 Pro Huawei has formally introduced a new Nano memory card technology, a new standard for memory cards, but we do not have the confidence that it will become globally useful. That's just the time to say.
As for the battery, in Mate 20 Pro Huawei There was an improvement that customers would appreciate. The 4,200 mAh allows us to have a range that easily exceeds one day. In my particular case, I start at 7 am with 100% load. At 10 am the team usually reaches 30%. I do not have to let myself get full during the night. The next morning, at 6 o'clock in the morning, Usually he averaged 3% more on average.
And here comes the best: Mate 20 Pro of Huawei comes with a wall charger with Super Charge technology that lets you charge up to 70% of the battery in just half an hour (you can see the demonstration HERE). It comes with Qi technology that allows wireless charging, not just that: the same equipment becomes an external battery, with the ability to become a wireless charger on the back. Yes, you can give power to other devices that are compatible with wireless charging.
The great attractiveness of this new team is concentrated here. Already with P20 Pro Huawei This marked a milestone in the photographic quality of the mobile device. And when it seemed you could not do much more, comes Mate 20 Pro. Is this dramatically improving the quality of the camera designed with Leica? But there is a big advantage at all. The best thing is that it's not just limited to photos but has been greatly improved in terms of video.
I especially appreciate the inclusion of wide-angle lenses because they are always useful. I believe that if your phone is used to record, for example, a trip, a wide angle is of fundamental importance to the building's buildings and scenarios in all their shine. This can already do Mate 20 Pro HuaweiNow, if you add to it, the ability to shoot night pictures (which have surprised us with P20 Pro and now improved) or that artificial intelligence fits in configurations to get more than every shot, there is still plenty of fun to do.
As for the artificial intelligence applied to the photos, I think it's improved. When configuring any available scene, the colors are slightly changed, and the shots no longer come in as bright as before. New scenarios have been added (such as Historic Buildings). In Mate 20 Pro of Huawei Reducing the effect is also improved. The edges are more precise and the target is usually good, as background and object lighting conditions are the best.
The portrait mode has also been enhanced. Some features that add effects (such as stained glass windows, blinds, etc.) have been added, which transmit the displayed image to other backgrounds. And another of the innovations of Mate 20 Pro Huawei is that the camera has Supermacro mode, which allows real close-ups with very interesting and striking results.
The subject of the video is also an interesting improvement. One of the lens Mate 20 Pro Huawei There is an electronic image stabilizer. It's not the best, but it helps a lot. Image quality is good. Allows recording in 4K, not longer for a limited time, but according to the user's decision. When the illumination is bad, it also makes an interesting job. Best of all, it has a ceiling to enhance and retain a surprising user.
# HuaweiMate20Pro It has a very interesting function in which the use of artificial intelligence is now revealed in video recording. Here's an example where one color is selected in real-time on a monochromatic background (although it is not completely perfect) pic.twitter.com/NbCvm9dvBP

Finally, artificial intelligence also begins to be used in cameras. Mate 20 Pro from Huawei It delivers a color-coding function where you can hold a colored object while the background remains black and white. There is also an unbeatable backdrop for video capture with this effect. They are very interesting with a clear playable spirit, but they do not work so well everyday. Scenarios are controlled movements and lighting where they can provide better results. You can see the complete gallery HERE.
Mate 20 Pro from Huawei the bottom does not have a speaker, but maintains stereo sound. How? So this unit offers stereo sound with the top speaker and … USB connector type C. Exactly, the lower output also serves as a sound. Of course, when you load the equipment or occupy the input, quality will decrease.
As for security, Mate 20 Pro Huawei offers a PIN (six digits), a pattern, a face recognition, and a fingerprint reader. In the second there is a novelty: the sensor is no longer on the front or on the back. It's now below the screen. It takes a bit of time to get used to this sensor and, be honest, work well, but not as fast or as the other sensors the Chinese company is already used to. But, on the other hand, facial recognition is very good. Quickly and accurately. It is important that you can finally have three layers of protection that protect your equipment, securing your data.
This equipment comes with the EMUI 9 Adaptation Layer Huawei, which has improved much in the latest versions. Try to ease certain tasks, seeking to take advantage of the best experience. It offers, for example, the ability to release Android navigation buttons and replace gesture gestures, in the style of new apple brand models.
Several features were presented in the London presentation, but they were not yet available (they offered them to arrive with the following updates): Some camera problems, 3D scanning of virtualization objects, among others, increased the reality. But, probably during the week of sales of the public Mate 20 Pro Huawei Now the software update is ready.
SALE AND PRICES
On Tuesday, November 6 – just three weeks after the global launch – Huawei Mate 20 Pro is officially presented in Peru. It has been announced that the device will be available with four operators (Movistar, Claro, Entel and Belt), but no details on pricing are given.
Mate 20 Pro from Huawei enter your online subscription from 7 to 15 November. Also, it was announced that one of the offerings for this pre-sale would be a package that would include a wireless charger and 360 camera. Another offer would be Huawei Watch GT.
As I've already expected, it seems to me with Mate 20 Pro Huawei it finally managed to have a "round" phone, which does not only stand out in some functions but is effective in other aspects. Above prices, I believe that with this device Huawei can face no problems with the most modern phones of competition. The right competition starts now.
