MrMobile's Huawei Mate 20 Pro Hands-On was produced following several hours with several Mate 20 Pro review devices at media briefings in New York City and London.

But ahead of the Mate 20 Pro's debut, the hardware appears to have been plagued by a number of leaks that may have outed its best features. Both smartphones will be available in Singapore on Oct 27.

According to these reports, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro will sport a 6.9-inch QuadHD+ OLED display, with a screen aspect ratio of 19.5:9.

True story: Huawei offered -twice- to fly me to London to spend a week with the Mate 20 Pro. and each time I told them "thanks, but October is much too busy".

Hurricane Michael Death Toll May Rise as Rescue Efforts Continue
Responders are still trying to tally up the damage done by Hurricane Michael , including the death toll, which continues to rise. Emergency officials said they had done an initial "hasty search" of 80% of the stricken area, looking for the living or the dead.

While the new phones have three cameras from famed German camera maker Leica on their rear - a regular lens, a telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens - there are slight differences between the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Huawei's Mate 20 Pro, on the other hand, features a massive 40MP Wide Angle, 20MP Ultra Wide Angle and an 8MP 3x Telephoto lens. In the mix is a 24MP RGB camera, a dot projector (for 3D sensing), flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, and an IR camera.

AI predictably remains a focus for Huawei, with its technology bettered and expanded, as is the Mate series' use as a camera.

The Mate 20 Pro has a 4,200mAh battery, a little bump from that of its predecessor. Then theres the charging – 40W wired SuperCharge and 15W wireless charging to fill the 4,200mAh battery. However, this is only possible using Huawei's own new nanoSD cards, instead of the commonly-used microSD cards.

The highlight of the new Mate 20 series is its new camera setup, and what powers the devices. The face unlock system is safe enough for transactions. It can also identify up to 10 million paintings and works of art, as well as estimate the amount of calories in food. The smartphones are also expected to come with Android 9.0 Pie operating system out-of-the-box.

Just like the P20 Pro, the Mate 20 Pro also doesn't come with a card slot.

The RS features a glass back outlined with two strips of handcrafted leather, the Porsche Design branding on the back, and increased onboard storage up to 256GB. Other specs include 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM (Mate 20 Pro), 4GB of 6GB of RAM (Mate 20), 128GB of storage, Cat.
