Just how smart can smartphones get? Huawei may have the answer to that with their latest lineup of Huawei Mate 20 Series.

Huawei redefines the smartphone with Mate 20 seriesHuawei Consumer Business Group recently unveiled their latest line of Huawei Mate 20 smartphones. Being the earliest to release their latest flagship line, Huawei has just laid out a trend that can definitely put its competitors to a state where they need to catch up. With Huawei’s Mate 20 series, the company put up specific technologies that make their smartphones smarter, faster and more capable.

For starters, the Mate 20 series is powered by Kirin 980. It is the world’s first 7nm chipset and offers up to 37% increase in overall performance over the Kirin 970. It uses 2 clusters, one is made up of 4 A76 cores, 2 of which are clocked higher than the other two. The second cluster on the other hand, uses four efficient A55 cores. To put this into simple terms: this densest and highest performing SoC in the market to date.

Complementing the features packed on its brand-spanking-new SoC are 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge, 15W Huawei Wireless Quick Charge and large batteries that bring more mobile experience to users in one single charge.

Huawei redefines the smartphone with Mate 20 seriesApart from all these, Huawei Mate 20 Series carries with it a camera system that gives the complete line a totally different look and camera shooting capabilities. It now includes Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens that will delight landscape photographers and other camera features.

Based on camera features presented by Huawei, while all phones feature the same matrix camera system, Mate 20 has the more inferior setup. Its main camera does not have all ultra-wide and superior telephoto advantages, unlike Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 X.
