Higher Intelligence

A visual art that embraces technology and craftsmanship. The HUAWEI Mate 20 is built with a full vibrant display to accentuate its pure beauty. The immensely powerful engine inside unlocks future possibilities and creates a new path for intelligence.

Iconic Design

An iconic square combining Leica Triple Camera and one flash inherits the Mate series’ central and simple camera design concept to create an aesthetic signature. See through the window, explore the world. Be immersed by the Dewdrop display with remarkable screen-to-body ratio, supporting a full screen of distinct clarity and striking colour. The seamless design provides a wide space to explore the world. A tribute to nature’s rich colours, HUAWEI Mate 20 is available in four vibrant colours. Light reflects beautifully off the back of midnight blue and emerald green making the unique Hyper Optical Patterns glitter. A special glass texture which is non-slip and anti-fingerprint. Sophisticated craftsmanship creates a smooth and warm contrast to the glass back and makes it comfortable and reliable to hold.

World’s 1st 7nm Mobile AI Chipset

The industry-leading 7nm process technology of Kirin 980 generates direct performance upgrade of speed improvement and power efficiency.

Introducing the Kirin 980, the world's first 7nm process mobile phone SoC chipset, the world’s first cortex-A76 architecture chipset, the world’s first dual NPU design, and the world’s first chipset to support LTE Cat.21. The Kirin 980 combines multiple technological innovations and leads the AI trend to provide users with impressive mobile performance and to create a more convenient and intelligent life.
The Kirin 980 integrates 6.9 billion transistors in an area of less than 1 square centimeter which is a 1.6x fold increase in density to empower better performance. This chipset is the first Cortex-A76 based in the world and has a 75% improvement in single core performance. The Kirin 980 also includes the world’s first commercial use Mali-G76 GPU performance is improved by 46%. The LPDDR4X memory operates at speeds up to 2133 MHz. The fourth-generation ISP utilises a multi-pass noise reduction to capture quality images and preserve important details. This ISP also has a dedicated video pipeline to effectively improve video clarity and reduce shooting delays by 33%.
The Kirin 980 7nm process technology compared with the 10nm process, improves performance by 20%, power efficiency by 40% and the overall energy efficiency of the Kirin 980 increased by 58%. The Mali-G76 GPU has also increased its energy efficiency by 178%*. The Kirin 980 is built with a 3 energy efficiency architecture which has 2 super cores, 2 large cores and 4 small efficiency cores and uses the Flex-Scheduling intelligence mechanism to allow the CPU to adapt in heavy, medium and light-load scenarios by reducing its power consumption and giving users a longer battery life while still achieving an overall higher performance experience.
Kirin 980 can quickly adapt to AI scenes such as face recognition, object recognition, object detection, image segmentation and intelligent translation with the power of a dual-core NPU achieving 4500 images per minute which is an improved 120% recognition speed. So whether it's dancing to a fast song or quickly running in front of the camera, the Kirin 980 can focus on the joints and lines of the human body in real time. The powerful object detection capabilities can also accurately identify a variety of objects. In comparison to the Kirin 970, the Kirin 980 is an impressive leap from image recognition to object detection. The Kirin 980 sets the foundation for future AI capabilities by providing complete framework support and rich tool keys for App developers.
The Kirin 980 is the first to support LTE Cat.21 which supports the fastest downlink at 1.4 Gbps and offers a stable connection in congested areas like subways or high-speed rails. With the Hi1103, it supports a theoretical peak download speed of 1.7 Gbps and 160 MHz bandwidth, which is 1.7x the industry level*. The GPS is supported by industry leading L1 + L5 dual frequency ultra-precise positioning to give you a more accurate target location when using map navigation, even in complex terrains.

Impressive Capacity

Enduring power is always the symbol of the Mate series. The impressive 4000 mAh battery with smarter AI power management fuels your daily work and entertainment needs. The HUAWEI SuperCharge with TÜV Safety certification supports a rapid charge of just 30 minutes to provide a 58% battery. Quick, safe and worry free.

Leica Triple Camera

The new Leica Triple Camera powered by AI reveals life’s drama, texture, colour and beauty in every photograph that will take your breath away. Designed for different scenarios, the 12 MP main RGB lens captures great details in everyday photos, while the 8 MP telephoto lens will focus on your distant shots and the new 16 MP Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens is perfect for the landscape photos and macro shots.

Broaden Your Horizons

Don’t let the camera limit your view. With the Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens, capture an imposingly wide perspective even from the confines of tight spaces. Capture details and surprises you couldn’t before. The Leica Ultra Wide Angle Lens takes extreme close-up shots from 2.5 cm. Discover the world from a new perspective.

AI-Painting Photography

Recognizing more than 1500 scenarios and 25 categories, the upgraded AI-powered photography now can segment different objects and scenes in one photo. Colours, brightness and contrast are adjusted automatically and precisely, just like fine-painting a photo, with perfect balance.

Capture the Night

Powered by advanced AI Image Stabilization, the Night Mode will shoot blur-free and focused handheld photos in low-light. It also balances high-contrast scenes to present incredible images in every setting.

Wireless Projecting

Get rid of the wires. HUAWEI Mate 20 allows you to project presentations, gaming or video immediately to a larger screen, maximizing the fun of sharing. In this PC mode, you are still able to send messages or make phone calls independently with privacy well-protected.
