In the present smartphone industry, the word ‘flagship’ gets besought so often that the term has largely lost its significance. Yet, Huawei’s recent string of high-end devices; Mate 20 series summons a significant gush of fresh air to the market. The flagship features of the choices fronting the series, which are Huawei Mate 20, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS has ended up being a lot more innovative, especially in the camera sphere than anticipated.

Commenting on the innovative front of the device, Huawei Devices Sri Lanka Country Head Peter Liu stated, “Mate 20 series sumps up the dream smartphone of the year 2019, symbolising exquisite design, powerful performance, extraordinary capturing capabilities and next-generation intelligence. This device is for the fast paced world that we live in today, facilitating flexibility, multi-tasking ability and efficiency.”

He further added, “For a professional who loves photography, the Mate 20 device can effectively replace at least one camera body, 2 lenses which is ultra-wide and macro, which will reduce the daily weight that you must carry around. This allows a better travel experience, without the constant concern about camera gear. So we present the new Huawei Mate 20 Series as the partner of choice for professionals pursuing quality of life.”

The Huawei Mate 20 has set a big stride forward for the camera phones, allowing the users to experience an enhanced versatile camera. The 4 point Camera System includes 16mm Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens that lets wider perspective create a sense of spaciousness and 3D effect to the images. Macro distance, which produces crisp images of objects that are placed as close as 2.5cm from the lens. The added ultra-wide angle lens and macro support completes the feature set of the camera system, elevating it to a truly all-round camera that is ready to capture any and all action. 

In addition the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 40MP main lens, a 20MP ultra wide-angle lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens. Together, the trio of lenses supports a wide range of focal lengths (equivalent to the performance of a 16-270mm zoom lens), enabling it to mimic the results from professional cameras.

Commenting on the camera features of the device, Dr. Vikum Senanayake, a veteran Sri Lankan photographer added, “I would rather call this a camera phone rather than a phone camera. In terms of camera, device demonstrates tremendous functionality and features. With the macro feature, you can capture very minute details of portraiture. It’s actually ultra-macro. Where I found the ultra-wide capability of this phone is in tighter spaces where you can actually get a much wider space captured. Say a shrine room, you can capture within the ultra-wide lens capability. I would definitely endorse this to any one, whether you area businessman on the run, a photographer or both. In short, Huawei has blown everyone out of the equation.”

If you’re after the best in smartphone photography, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro sets the bar. Yet it holds its own on other fronts that serve to propel it to the top of the category. The Huawei Mate 20 Series comes with EMUI 9.0, a smart operating system based on Android P. EMUI 9.0 incorporates a unified, ergonomic design and a streamlined settings menu.

The designs are available in 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM configuration and Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS with 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM is priced at Rs. 299,999 for customers in Sri Lanka.
