In short

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro fingerprint

The Mate 20 is the larger device, with a 6.53-inch screen and a small notch. With the Mate 20 Pro, the design stands out: the 6.39-inch looks compact, with rounded edges and a fingerprint sensor in the screen. This device is also the first Huawei smartphone to be charged wirelessly. This is also reverse wireless charging; the phone itself recharges other devices, such as the new Huawei earbuds (not yet available) or even a smartphone.

Photos: triple camera plus AI

Huawei Mate 20 camera

The P20 Pro was already showered with awards in 2018, especially for its camera, but the Mate 20 takes it a step further. The AI is extensive and recognizes even more situations (like a cat, a portrait, snow, or fireworks), so the camera will automatically adjust the settings, which means you don't need to mess around with the shutter speed, for example. You don't need the monochrome (black and white) camera of the P20 Pro anymore either, thanks to more advanced software. In addition, the Mate 20 has room for an extra-wide wide-angle lens, which lets you take even better pictures of a large group or a vast landscape.

Video: record in bokeh

During the development of the new powerful Kirin processor, they focused particularly on room for AI. As a result, the AI not only helps you to take pictures, but also to record videos. The Mate 20 (Pro) automatically keeps a sharp focus on the object you're filming, even when you more around a lot. On top of that, you can easily add effects to your videos, like bokeh, without having to edit them afterwards using a program. The Mate 20 adds the effect in real time, so you'll what your video will look like right away.

Battery: up to 2 days

Huawei Mate 20 Pro wireless charging

Huawei is putting all its money on battery life, with a 4,000mAh battery in the Mate 20 and 4,200mAh in the Mate 20 Pro. You could last 2 days on a single charge. On top of that, the quick charger fills up the battery up to 70% in half an hour, so the times of having to put your phone on the charger for a whole night are over. The Mate 20 Pro is also wirelessly rechargeable, and it can charge earbuds and other smartphones wirelessly using its own battery.

Processing power: beating the competition?

Kirin 980 Huawei

The Mate 20 series is pretty good under the hood as well. It contains the Kirin 980 processor, Huawei's first 7nm (nanometer) processor. This processor is smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient than the current 10nm processors. Combined with at least 4GB of RAM for the Mate 20 and 6GB for the Mate 20 Pro, these smartphones can handle the most demanding tasks. The Mate 20 Pro might become the most powerful current smartphone.
