Huawei mobile has finally launched the HUAWEI Mate 20 series in Kenya after officially releasing the devices two months ago. The Chinese company has released the series powered by its own in-house designed Kirin 980 AI chip, an advanced chip fabricated with 7nm process technology.
7nm offers improvements to silicon area and power efficiency as a result of the smaller transistor feature sizes. Devices launched recently and those to be released in the near future show that mobile companies are rushing to release devices advanced with this next process shrink-down. The trade-off is the technology needed to make 7nm chips and is becoming increasingly expensive and so are chip design costs.
Matrix Camera system
The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is equipped with a 40MP main camera, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. Together, the trio of lenses supports a wide range of focal lengths enabling it to mimic the results from professional cameras. This wider perspective creates a sense of spaciousness and a three-dimensional effect to the images. The new camera system also supports macro distance, which produces crisp images of objects that are laces as close as 2.5 cm from the lens. The HUAWEI Mate 20 Series also features an AI Portrait Color video mode. Using AI, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Series can isolate human subjects and desaturate the colors around them to dramatically highlight the person. AI Spotlight Reel identifies clips with a shared theme and auto-generates a montage, made entirely of highlights.
Besides superb performance, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Series also features groundbreaking improvement on battery life. It houses a large, high-density 4200mAh** battery, and supports 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge, which gives the device 70 percent charge in 30 minutes. Moreover, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro supports 15W HUAWEI Wireless Quick Charge, the industry’s fastest wireless charging solution, and Wireless Reverse Charge, which enables the device to work as a power bank for selected electronic devices supporting wireless charging.
The HUAWEI Mate 20 Series comes with EMUI 9.0, a smart operating system based on Android P. Among many uses advised by AI self-learning algorithms, the OS allows you to tuck away your private apps, photos and data in space only the phone owner can access. The private space on EMUI 9.0 enables the user to create a discrete zone on the phone.
It also features a new gesture navigation support allowing users to effortlessly interact with their devices using just taps and swipes. In addition, it enables the HUAWEI Mate 20 Series to perform or enhance a range of tasks from object identification to food calorie counting by simply pointing the camera towards objects. It is also able to recognize famous paintings and landmarks. Using 3D Live Object Modeling, consumers can even create a fun digital avatar to dance or interact with.
