Huawei Mate 20 Overview & Key Features

The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are Huawei’s flagship smartphones in 2018. They boast some of the best specs on the market, whilst being more affordable than many other smartphones on the market this year. The Mate 20 and Mate 20 pro are currently available for pre-order and are expected to hit the shelves in November.

Huawei has run several Black Friday deals in previous years, and our analysts think this is a timely release and predict Huawei Mate 20 Black Friday deals as we approach Thanksgiving and deals week. Before we get to the deals though, let’s take a look at the tech specs and what makes these smartphones stand out against competitors in 2018.

Huawei Mate 20 Key Features

The Mate 20, (which is not to be confused with the P20 lite released earlier in 2018) is a powerful, moderately priced smartphone with excellent camera features which we only expected to see in smartphones in 2019. However, the standard Mate 20 does lack in some areas where the Mate 20 Pro and other smartphones like the iPhone XR do not.

If you’re choosing the Mate 2o this Black Friday, you’ll have to be ok without wireless charging, face recognition, and curved Samsung style screens. So, you’ll have to ask yourself whether you really need these features.

Huawei Mate 20 Standard Key Specs
  • 6.53-inch full HD LCD flat screen display (no curved edges)
  • High power Kirin 980 processor
  • 3 rear cameras: standard lens, telephoto lens and an ‘ultra-wide angle’ with sharp focus, capable of the bokeh effect, beauty mode, as well as manual settings for aperture, ISO and shutter speed.
  • 24 megapixel front facing camera
  • 128GB storage which is expandable with NanoSD format
  • Dual sim card capability
  • Rear fingerprint sensor
  • IP68 water and dust resistance – this means the Mate 20 is splashproof, but not fully waterproof
  • Runs Android 9 Pie
  • 4,000 mAh battery with 40W-rated SuperCharge

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Black Friday

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Key Features

The Huawei Mate 20 pro is the big brother of the Mate 20 and although the specs are similar, the Mate 20 Pro ships with several extra features which we think really sets it apart, such as the ability to charge other devices wirelessly. This means you can share your battery with a friend when their phone goes flat.

The Mate 20 Pro also has a stunning OLED screen, on-screen fingerprint sensor, and 3D facial recognition. It’s a high powered, stylish and practical smartphone which gives the major flagship smartphones a run for their money.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Key Specs
  • A stunning 6.39-inch OLED HDR curved screen display with QHD+ resolution capable of pure blacks and incredible detail.
  • High power Kirin 980 processor
  • 40-megapixel primary camera which supports RAW. Of course, it also has all the features you’d expect in a flagship like the bokeh effect, ability to change lighting, focus and more.
  • Huawei’s HiVision, which is apparently able to recognise landmarks and even translate different languages.
  • 4K video recording at 30FPS and slow-motion which records at 960FPS
  • On-screen fingerprint scanner which in our tests worked superbly
  • 128GB storage which is expandable with NanoSD format
  • Dual sim card capability.
  • Advanced 3D facial recognition which is incredibly fast
  • Wireless charging
  • A world first: The Mate 20 Pro is able to charge other devices wirelessly when placed together
  • IP68 water and dust resistance.
  • Runs Android 9 Pie
  • Very large 4,200mAh battery
  • Huawei claim it is capable of charging 70% in 30 minutes.
  • No headphone jack

Huawei Mate 20 Colors

Both the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 pro are available in 5 colors, including some gradient deep blue to purple which we think really stands out. The gradient phones actually have a texture which is subtly ribbed which gives extra grip, reduces fingerprint marks, and also slides into your pocket a little easier. These little touches haven’t gone unnoticed and it gives the Mate 20 a stylish, yet practical aesthetic.

Do we expect to see Huawei Mate 20 Black Friday deals?

At the time of writing, pre-orders of the Huawei Mate 20 pro are eligible for both a Huawei Watch GT in black and Huawei Wireless Charger in white with no extra charge.

Since the phone is available for preorder and is expected to be available in shops and online in early November, we think it’s likely that we’ll see Huawei Mate 20 Black Friday deals as we approach deals week. We currently only have limited price data, so we can’t make any solid predictions. However, our analysts have set up a Huawei Mate 20 Black Friday price tracker and will list any and all deals and price movements on the standard and pro models on this page.

Final thoughts

We think the Huawei Mate 20 is a great flagship phone with excellent features, but it is very close in price to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and in our opinion, if you can afford it, the pro is worth the extra $. If you are on a budget and don’t desperately need your smartphone now, we do recommend waiting for the possible release of Huawei Mate 20 Pro Black Friday deals, as we expect that you will be able to get a better price during this years discount period.
