Huawei Mate 20 Price, Specifications, and More: Everything We Know Ahead of the Launch


Huawei is all set for its Mate 20 series launch in London on Tuesday, and the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20X smartphones are largely expected to go official. The three devices will be powered by the newly announced HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, feature triple cameras, and are expected to be priced significantly higher than the Mate 10 series. Leaks surrounding the three devices have been aplenty, and we already know a whole lot about the possible price, specifications, and design details about the Mate 20 series. To recall, the Huawei Mate 20 Lite smartphone has already been launched at IFA in August, and now the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and Mate 20X look set to be announced.

The Huawei Mate 20 series event is scheduled to begin at 2pm BST (6.30pm IST), and will be live streamed. We’ve compiled all that we know so far about the Huawei Mate 20 series, and you can find the rundown below.

Huawei Mate 20 price (rumoured)

Recent leaks suggest that the Huawei Mate 20 will retail for EUR 799 (roughly Rs. 68,300) in European markets, while the Mate 20 Pro will be launched at EUR 1,080 (around Rs. 92,300) in Europe. Earlier, tipster Roland Quandt claimed that the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage of the Mate 20 Pro would be priced at GBP 899 (roughly Rs. 87,200) in the UK. If these price leaks are true, this brings about a significant increase in pricing from last year. To recall, the predecessors Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro were launched at EUR 699 (approximately Rs. 51,200) and EUR 799 (about Rs. 59,700), respectively. Price of the Huawei Mate 20X gaming phone hasn’t been leaked as of yet.

Earlier leaks have suggested that in Israel, the Huawei Mate 20 is expected to sport a price tag of ILS 3,000 (about Rs. 60,600), while the Mate 20 Pro is expected to be priced at ILS 4,000 (roughly Rs. 80,800). The two phones will arrive in Israel before the end of October, while India availability is expected to be before the end of the year as well.

Huawei Mate 20 design (rumoured)

The Huawei Mate 20 series is expected to sport a premium design finish with glass back construction. Past leaks suggest that the Huawei Mate 20 will sport a waterdrop-shaped notch, while the Mate 20 Pro will sport a wide display notch to house additional sensors up front. Both the phones are expected to sport a triple camera setup at the back, and the Mate 20 Pro is expected to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner as well (Mate 20 will sport a rear fingerprint scanner). While the company has confirmed the arrival of the Mate 20X, little has been leaked about its design. We expect the device to look similar to the Pro variant, sport a larger battery, and powerful innards. Mind you, this is pure speculation at this point in time.

Huawei Mate 20 specifications (rumoured)

Starting with the Huawei Mate 20, it was tipped earlier to sport a 6.43-inch full-HD+ TFT LCD panel with a resolution of 1080×2244 pixels and resulting aspect ratio of 18.7:9. It will be powered by the Kirin 980 SoC, and is expected to pack 4GB of RAM. The smartphone is tipped to sport 128GB storage and be powered by a 4,000mAh battery. This phone will apparently sport a physical rear-mounted fingerprint sensor with face recognition and a 3.5mm headphone jack expected as well.

Next, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will most likely sport a 6.39-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) OLED display, front-facing stereo speakers, 6GB RAM and 8GB RAM options, 128GB inbuilt storage, and run EMUI 9.0 on top of Android 9.0 Pie, leaks have indicated. Reports suggest that a 3.5mm headphone jack won’t be part of the package and the smartphone will be backed by a 4,200mAh battery, with support for SuperCharge 2.0 that promises 70 percent of battery life with 30 minutes of charge.

The Mate 20 Pro is reported to have an in-display fingerprint sensor, though it is unclear whether it would be an optical sensor or an all-new ultrasonic one. Huawei will apparently also bring its proprietary “Nano Memory Card” format to the Mate 20 Pro that will enable storage expansion up to 256GB. The Nano Memory Card by the company is said to come in the size of a Nano-SIM.

The Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro are said to have a triple camera setup at the back that could have a 40-megapixel primary sensor along with an f/1.8 aperture and combine four pixels into one to deliver impressive results; 20-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/2.4 aperture; and an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor. There could also be a 24-megapixel sensor at the front along with a Vertical Surface Emitting Laser (VSEL) module that is rumoured to enable 3D facial recognition similar to Apple’s Face ID. The triple camera setup at the back is also rumoured to enable 5x optical zoom and the ability to capture ultra macro shots from an as short distance as 2.5cm.

The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is reported to have high-speed LTE access, NFC, Bluetooth v5.0, and Gigabit WLAN with dual-band support. The handset is also said to come in four colour options, including “Twilight” as well as Black, Blue, and Green.

Specification differences on the Mate 20X haven’t been detailed yet in any leak.

Vivo Z3i With 6.3-Inch Display, 24-Megapixel Front Camera Launched: Price, Specifications


Vivo has quietly launched a new smartphone – Vivo Z3i – in China. The mid-range handset is essentially a rebranded variant of the Vivo V11 that had arrived in India in September, or the Vivo V11i that was launched in Thailand the same month. While the design and specifications of the smartphones are quite similar, there are a few changes under the hood. When it comes to the Vivo V11, the Vivo Z3i features identical specifications in terms of display, processor, RAM, and battery, but they differ when we consider the camera and inbuilt storage. The Vivo Z3i appears to be a successor to the Vivo Z1i that was a China-exclusive smartphone. In terms of design, the key features of the smartphone include a waterdrop display notch, bezel-less display, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Vivo Z3i price

As mentioned, Vivo has launched Vivo Z3i smartphone only in China and is priced at CNY 2,398 (roughly Rs. 25,600). Notably, the handset comes in Aurora Blue and Millennium Powder colour variants.

The smartphone is powered by the octa-core Mediatek Helio P60 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. All of these features are similar to the Vivo V11 that was launched in India.

In terms of optics, the Vivo Z3i bears a dual camera setup with a 16-megapixel sensor and a 2-megapixel sensor. To recall, the Vivo V11 in India came with a dual rear camera setup with a 16-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor. Meanwhile, at the front, the Vivo Z3i features a 24-megapixel camera, which is slightly different than the Vivo V11 that has a 25-megapixel sensor. The Vivo Z3i is equipped with 128GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card slot (up to 256GB). It is more than the Vivo V11 that had arrived with 64GB of inbuilt storage.

Connectivity options in the Vivo Z3i include 4G VoLTE, GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. Sensors on board the handset are an ambient light sensor, gyroscope, and proximity sensor.

While its design language is very premium and futuristic, the fifth generation Honda CR-V is distinctive in its appearance and sports a thick chrome bar up front and LED headlamps and LED fog lamps. At the rear, the SUV gets redesigned taillights that look smart. Inside, the cabin is a complete overhaul and sports a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and more.

The bigger update though is the new 1.6-litre diesel engine on the CR-V that is tuned for 120 bhp and 300 Nm of peak torque. The diesel will be paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Meanwhile, a 2.0-litre petrol motor is also available with 154 bhp and 192 Nm of peak torque. The diesel will be offered with all-wheel-drive as an option, while the petrol will only get a front wheel drive version as standard.

The 2018 Honda CR-V will take on the likes of the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour, Skoda Kodiaq and the Volkswagen Tiguan. Prices are expected to start at around Rs. 28 lakh (ex-showroom).
