Huawei Mate 20 Pro with triple cameras, in-display fingerprint reader hits India

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Front

The Mate 20 Pro has made its way to India, about a month after making its international debut. Huawei’s stuffed the flagship phone with all kinds of top-notch features, including 3 cameras at the back, an under-display fingerprint scanner, a 24MP 3D Depth Sensing Camera at the front, and reverse wireless charging.

All this, but Huawei still couldn’t find the space for a 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s also adopted a notch design for the display, resulting in a 6.39-inch OLED screen with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and 3120 x 1440p resolution. Other than the cutout, the device looks a lot like the Galaxy S9/S9+.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Price

The Mate 20 Pro is a lot more expensive than its Samsung rivals though. You’ll have to shell out Rs 69990 for its sole 6GB/128GB option. If you pay Rs 71990, you’ll get a pair of Sennheiser PXC 550 wireless headphones worth Rs 29990 as part of a limited-period early bird deal.

It should be noted that the Huawei device only supports storage expansion up to 256GB via a Nano memory (NM) card. The company is the only one who makes them at the moment and it hasn’t said anything about India availability yet. The dual-SIM slot is a hybrid type, meaning you can either use two SIM cards simultaneously or one SIM card and one NM card.
