Huawei’s first devices that carry their next generation 7nm Kirin 980 chipset have finally been unveiled, through no lack of leaks over the past few weeks. Just about every new feature in the Mate 20 has been systematically leaked. So, I present to you a few choices:

  1. If you haven’t read up on the Kirin 980 chipset yet, you should do so here first.
  2. If you’ve already read all the leaks and seen everything you wish to see, you can check out my unboxing video just down below where I get real touchy and feely with the Mate 20 Pro.
  3. If you want to get some extra close-up shots of the devices, you can check out our picture gallery here.

Launch day special

30am till 10pm. Customers who purchase a Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro at this event will receive an additional premium gift worth up to S$463. We’re still trying to confirm with Huawei the exact items in either gift pack for both phones, but going by its estimated value, it’s highly likely that Huawei will throw in both the 128GB nano memory card and 15W fast wireless charger, which will be the two most useful accessories for this phone. This will put your Mate 20/Pro at 256GB storage right off the bat.

All Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro customers are also entitled to Huawei HICARE PRESTIGE package, which includes one year door-to-door repair with pick-up and delivery service, two years device warranty, and three months screen insurance.
