Bangalore, January 72019: Huawei joined the 69 bandwagon with a flagship for those who are into serious photography and power on their smartphones. The Mate 20 Pro is the world's first device featuring Huawei's own Kirin 980 processor with 7 nm cores, and high-end processing units (GPU and CPU). The device also leverages interesting AI with in-built self-learning algorithms and a dynamic resource allocation system. This basically means that it continually monitors your app behaviour and allocates processing nodes in real-time, optimizing performance and reducing battery burnout.
The Mate 20 Pro takes Huawei's Leica legacy forward with an ultra wide angle lens, that has macro lens capabilities: You can see images wider and closer. The back camera has a 40 MP wide angle lens, a 20 MP ultra wide angle lens, along with an 8 MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom. Each image can be captured in up to 10 frames in RAW format, that pro photographers can use to play with. The Mate 20 Pro allows you to create personalized bokeh with animation effects to jazz up your pictures. The front camera has a 24 MP RGB clicker, a dot projector (like a sniper), an IR camera (to identify depth in low-light), and a flood illuminator (replacing harsh floodlight flashes).
The Mate 20 Pro claims to be the world's fastest 15W wireless charge device, which can also be used to wirelessly reverse-charge phones and accessories. Additional bells and whistles include 3D modeling, smart shopping through images that link you to online stores, and intuitive gesture navigation to change your screen view. The Mate 20 Pro is powered by a 4200 mAh battery with a 40 W charger. Priced at Rs, 69,990, the phone is for those who value camera performance -- and a high-end processor. VISHNU ANAND
