Huawei unveils Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, takes aim at Apple, Samsung

Confirming rumours from the past few weeks, Huawei has introduced the world's first Nano memory card, which is claimed to be 45 percent smaller than the microSD card.

It's a 7.2-inch device so while the Mate 20 Pro features a 6.39-inch FullView display, the Mate 20 X takes this to another level with a whopping 18.7:9 ratio 7.2-inch 2,240 x 1,080 OLED display that Huawei says can be comfortably used with a single hand.

The Porsche Design variant is essentially the Mate 20 Pro on steroids, aimed at the rich and ostentatious.

The processor is mated with either 6GB or 4GB of RAM on the Mate 20 and 8GB on the Mate 20 Pro. In a rather unexpected move, though, Huawei also took the opportunity to present its latest Porsche Design device dubbed the Huawei Mate 20 RS.

Gartner analyst Roberta Cozza said that in a highly commoditized smartphone market of look-alike phones, Huawei is managing to differentiate itself with camera and personalization features. However, the stylus is separately positioned and tethered, leading us to infer that the Mate 20 won't have a special stylus-equipped version.

Other specs include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

OPEC slashes growth forecast for global oil demand
The global benchmark has retreated after hitting a four-year high of $US86.74 on October 3. Brent crude futures were down $1.32, or 1.6 percent, at $81.77 a barrel by 0543 GMT.

Both smartphones contain Huawei's latest Kirin 980 processor chip, which has two neural processing units compared to one on the previous Kirin chip.

It has a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, an IP53 rating, and even has a 3.5mm audio jack.

The smartphones are expected to sport a metal and glass unibody design and are also said to come with triple rear camera setup powered by Leica. The Pro in particular houses three - 40MP for wide angle, telephoto and a new 20MP ultra wide angle lens, which, complemented by those AI technologies now with 150 scenes recognised, promise to deliver a near-enough professional standard experience for all scenarios.

Connectivity options on the Mate 20 include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port. The Mate 20 Pro, meanwhile, has a 40-megapixel wide angle, 20-megapixel super wide angle, and 8-megapixel telephoto lenses.

The front camera is a 24MP sensor and it works with a 3D face unlock system to keep your phone secure. Huawei wants you to be able to charge your phone in less time, so the Mate 20 Pro supports 40W SuperCharge fast charge technology. The smartphones also support up to 15W Qi-based wireless charging.
