For imaging, the device gets a 24MP selfie camera, while the rear gets a 40MP f/1.8 main, 20MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle and 8MP f/2.4 telephoto shooter with 3X optical zoom. Similar to the latest P30 Pro, it also gets a large 4,200mAh battery that supports 40W SuperCharge fast-charging via USB-C as well as reverse wireless charging.

Huawei Mate 20

The non-Pro Mate 20 is a cheaper alternative which still packs a punch. It gets a flat 6.5″ Full HD+ display and it runs on the same top-of-the-line Kirin 980 processor with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage. The cameras are a step down with a 12MP f1/.8 main, 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle and an 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera for the rear.
