Huawei is trying something different with the Mate 20 Pro, the companyâ€™s newest flagship smartphone announced on Tuesday. Like the P20 Pro released earlier this year, the Mate 20 Pro features a triple-camera system on the rear of the device, including 40-megapixel (f/1.8), 20-megapixel (f/2.2), and 8-megapixel (f/2.4) lenses. But rather than arranging them in a vertical line, the Mate 20 Pro positions them in a square.
The result is a more pleasing design that Huawei hopes will produce images that are improved over the P20 Pro, which many consider as having one of the best smartphone cameras on the market. It doesnâ€™t quite have as large of a footprint either, blending into the back of the device.
Flipping the device over to its front and youâ€™ll notice that the device has a notch, like the majority of flagship devices in 2018. But Huawei actually does something with it. In addition to a 24-megapixel front-facing camera, the Mate 20 Pro features 3D face unlock technology that includes a dot projector, proximity sensor, and IR camera, similar to Appleâ€™s TrueDepth camera.
For good measure, Huawei also embedded a fingerprint sensor in the display, so you have multiple biometric options.
