Huawei Mate 20 users, did you know that you get a reward membership with your device? The “Mate20 VIP” membership offers rewards from brands like Malaysia Airlines, Watches of Switzerland, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, Palm Garden Golf Club and Auto Bavaria, to name a few.
If you’ve been eyeing Huawei‘s brand new Mate 20 smartphones, there’s good news because now I can tell you how much you will need to pony up if you want to get one of these flagship devices in your hands. Huawei’s bringing all three Mate 20 devices into Malaysia, but they will be a little more pricey than you may expect.
UPDATE: Huawei Malaysia has revealed the official local pricing for the Mate 20 series. Click here to read more.
Samsung has shown their hand. Apple has shown their hand. Google has shown their hand. Now, it’s time for Huawei to show the world what they’re capable of with the company’s biggest flagship launch of the year. This is the Mate 20 series, and while it goes without saying that these are the most capable smartphones Huawei has produced yet, I think the bigger achievement here is that we aren’t looking at a simple “tock” update.
It’s a whole new smartphone. Well, three whole new smartphone, actually.
Huawei will be unveiling its new Mate 20 series next month and we got clear look thanks to a leak that had surfaced two days ago. Apart from having a more powerful 7nm Kirin 980 processor, the Mate 20 series will come with a couple of new features and most of them are now revealed thanks to a leak from an Israeli site.
I was a little apprehensive about Huawei‘s next big device. Every single leak I saw, I prayed and hoped that it wouldn’t be what it looks like it would, but as the evidence continues to pile up, it’s becoming clear that there’s no point in my resistance. Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro will almost certainly have a square camera module.
Most flagship smartphone these days don’t give you the option to expand storage with a microSD card. For Huawei, their top of the line Huawei Mate 10 Pro and P20 Pro come with 128GB of internal storage but if that’s not enough, there’s no way for you to pop-in a microSD card.
However, for the upcoming Mate 20 Pro, it appears that Huawei might be doing something rather different. You could potentially upgrade the storage on their next flagship phablet but it won’t be your typical microSD card.
Graphene is said to be a new wonder material which could be a game changer for a lot of industries. It’s a thin layer of carbon atoms and it is 200 times stronger than steel, making it one of the strongest materials ever made. This super light and flexible material is also said to have the highest thermal conductivity known to man.
Based on some leaked presentation slides, it appears that Huawei could turn to graphene to cool down its upcoming flagship devices.
Huawei is stepping things up with their upcoming Mate 20 series which will be announced next month. It will be running on their new 7nm Kirin 980 chip and you can expect it to come with wireless charging as standard.
On most smartphones, the wireless charging feature usually works one way and that’s only to charge the device itself. Now it appears that Huawei might be the first smartphone to allow two way wireless charging on the Mate 20 series.
Lately, there’s been much buzz about the Huawei Mate 20 series of smartphones. Various leaks have been indicating that the Mate 20 series might be adopting a brand new square camera module on the rear and it looks like all of this information could be the real deal.
Huawei will be announcing its Huawei Mate 20 series very soon. Word has it that it will come with a massive 4,200mAh battery which is larger than most flagships smartphones today. However, big batteries usually mean longer charging time but Huawei might have a new solution to this.
