After the success of the P20 Series, Huawei has launched again another strong candidate for “the flagship phone of the year 2018” title in Huawei Mate 20/ 20 Pro.
In an exclusive event held in Makati, Huawei formally introduced the Mate 20 series to the local tech media, they didn’t waste any time bringing it in because their presence and brand awareness continues to increase in the Philippines. Over the past months, the Chinese tech giant had good sell-outs starting from the entry-level to high-end segment thanks to their Leica branded cameras on their smartphones, great phone features, and competitive pricing.
The Huawei Mate 20/ 20 Pro features a refreshed Leica triple-camera set-up with larger camera sensor for better image output. For the Mate 20 pro, they added a powerful addition, a 16mm Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens. The wider perspective creates a sense of spaciosness and three dimensional effect on the images. The new camera system also supports macro distance, which produces crisp images of objects that are placed as close as 2.5cm from the lens. Lastly, it is equipped with 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. Together, the three lenses supports wide range of focal lengths (equivalent to the performance of a 16-270mm zoom lens), enabling it to mimic the results from professional cameras.
