The world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer recently launched its latest flagship device, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro globally, and now the phone that is competing with the latest offerings from rivals Samsung and Apple is also available to South African mobile aficionados.
One review of the Mate 20 Pro describes it as the most feature-packed smartphone currently on the market. 3D face scanning, a three-lens camera set-up, facial recognition and the first in-display fingerprint sensor on any mobile device are just some of the features of the Mate 20 Pro, but let’s jump straight into the fun stuff.
Tough, beautiful and efficient
The Mate 20 Pro is water resistant, and can even be fully submerged at a depth of two metres for up to 30 minutes, even though this device’s features will leave you not wanting to leave it in water (or anywhere else) for too long.
A wide-angle lens makes it easy to capture the full extent of any scene, and the cameras on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro are recognised as some of the best on the market, with the ability to capture images of exceptional quality even – and especially – in low light conditions. The smart software of the device allows it to recognise people, animals, plants and even buildings, allowing it to adjust the shooting mode accordingly.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro supports wireless charging and fast-charging, but its large battery will make these features something that you probably won’t need all that often, as the battery life rivals that of all of its competitors by a landslide. The 4,200mAh battery is the largest smartphone battery in any mainstream flagship release, and offers battery life that is truly astounding. Expect up to seven hours of screen-on time every day.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is available on a Vodacom contract from mid October 2018 on a Smart S+ contract for just R729 per month, including a free wireless charger and 10GB once-off. Contact Smartcom to order this impressive addition to the mobile market.
