Huawei Mate 20 unveils ‘higher intelligence’

The new Mate 20 series, launching in South Africa today, includes a 7.2″ handset, and promises improved AI.



The Mate 20 Pro is also the world’s first smartphone to support the 4.5G LTE Cat. 21 standard, allowing download speeds of up to 1.4Gbps. It also supports dual-band (L1+L5) GPS positioning technology, while an AI GPS Satellite Selection technology enhances the positioning accuracy across a wide range of scenarios.

The Mate 20 Pro houses a large, high-density 4200mAh battery, and supports 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge, which gives the device 70 percent charge in 30 minutes. The safety of the technology is certified by TÜV Rheinland.

The device also supports Wireless Reverse Charge, which enables the device to work as a power bank for selected electronic devices supporting wireless charging.

The Mate 20 X supports an ultra-large 5000mAh battery, and is equipped with a cooling system that uses a combination of graphene film and vapour chamber to deliver higher cooling performance.

The P20 Series’ camera system uses a 16mm Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens, which Huawei says creates a sense of spaciousness and a three dimensional effect in images. It also supports macro distance, which produces crisp images of objects that are placed as close as 2.5cm from the lens. It is equipped with a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. Together, the trio of lenses supports a wide range of focal lengths, which Huawei says is equivalent to the performance of a 16-270mm zoom lens.

An AI Portrait Color video mode can isolate human subjects and desaturate the colours around them to highlight the person. AI Spotlight Reel identifies clips with a shared theme and auto-generates a montage, made of highlights.

The Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 RS both support 3D Face Unlock. The solution authenticates users within 0.6 seconds at a false acceptance rate measured at below 1/1,000,000. A 3D Depth Sensing Camera System located at the front reads the facial features of a subject and recognises even small details. Besides user authentication, this suite of sensors also enables portrait beautification effects to be realised in a more natural and effective way.

The EMUI 9.0 Android skin incorporates new gesture navigation support  to allow users to interact with their devices using taps and swipes. It also introduces new AI features that enable it to perform or enhance a range of tasks from object identification to food calorie counting. Using 3D Live Object Modeling, consumers can also create a fun digital avatar to dance or interact with.
